mmmm this chai really hit the spot. It has all my favourite things: a smooth DECAF black base, lots of ginger and easy on the cinnamon, creamy vanilla, a nutty aroma. Very rich, yet well balanced.

I brewed this 45 min cold (1 teabag, 500 mL water) then added lots of ice. Fantastic. It would be great brewed hot, too. Plus, it would handle any type of milk (I recommend vanilla almond milk) or sweetener well, but is also excellent on its own. It has an after taste of nutty vanilla and cooked milk, so I think it handles the sweetness/creaminess fine on its own. With the nutmeg and allspice, this is a very spicy and aromatic tea.

GCTTB6

Pulled this out of the GCTTB and it made for the ultimate lazy person tea. Just dropped it in a water bottle and shook for a surprisingly flavorful drink. Think blueberry pie filling, a blueberry flavor but much, much sweeter than the actual fruit. I actually enjoyed it so thank you Arby (I think) for adding it to the box.

Thank you to the lovely people at Stash for sending me some free samples of their new blends. Two of them are mate blends (high caffeine), so I decided to try this herbal today. I usually do one caffeine day and then two to five caffeine free days (except tiny amounts found in dark chocolate or decaf tea/coffee) so I do not risk getting addicted/depended on caffeine as a stimulant. I already sleep poorly, I can’t imagine trying to function if I’m tired every morning/crave caffeine on top of that.

Anyway, this is a nice mint/fennel/licorice root herbal. I’m not much for licorice root in teas because I don’t like the type of sweetness that licorice root/cinnamon/chicory have. Still, this blend is soothing and pleasant. The licorice root brings a metallic mineral flavour and a root flavour (which I like). The taste fits the name of the blend well. The flavour combination is indeed minty and licoricy, what more would you expect?

This is a great blend for someone who likes licorice root in tisanes. I happen not to, so I wouldn’t buy this again. However, as far as licorice blends go, this isn’t a bad choice.

Great for bed time. Mint is the dominating flavour with a a touch of floral/earthiness. I’m guessing the floral/earthy flavour comes from the chamomile since I can’t say I’ve ever had a straight chamomile tea before. It does live up to its name though! Very calming, relaxing tea. Not something I reach for often but I always have a box in the cupboard.

This has been my favourite Moroccan Mint blend for years. I’ve been trying to get into iced tea lately to make my daily water intake less of a chore (I aim for a gallon a day) so I started with this. In a 1 litre/1 quart mason jar I put 1 tea bag and filled it up with boiling water, then let it cool to room temp. before refrigerating overnight with the bag still in. It’s very light in flavour, but I prefer this way, and super refreshing! I enjoy it hot too! I have no complaints about this tea!

Not a bad green tea. Very “vegetal” tasting which I don’t mind. No bitterness which I always appreciate. I would buy this one again. Tastes like a decent quality green tea, especially for a brand that you can get at the grocery store.

Flavors: Green, Vegetal

I love Stash Tea Company. They haven’t disappointed me yet. Their Organic Earl Grey Black and Green Tea is wonderful!

MrQuackers

I reviewed this one as a favourite. Using two tea bags, it makes for a super high quality tea. Delicious!

Teatotaler, I really like Stash too! They have some really good teas!

MrQuackers, I agree, it does taste like a high quality tea. I’m having a cup right now!

So Red Velvet cupcakes are my favourite so I was incredibly excited to see this at Goodness Me Grocery Store that I had to buy it. Brewed this tea tastes just as good as I had hoped for the smell is fantastic the liquor is a dark red and the taste is everything that I wanted it to be with notes of raspberry, buttermilk, cocoa and sweetness. No milk or sugar needed!

When it comes to mint blends I’ve always felt Peppermint and Spearmint are at their best when they are blended together as they nicely even each other out. Stash Organic Cascade Mint is the first Peppermint/Spearmint teabag blend that does not add other herbs into the mix. Overall a very cool and refreshing blend that is one of the few that is able to distract me from shou puerh (but only for a limitned amount of tea).

An interesting twist on the traditional lemon ginger blend. A little more bright and sweet than its lemon counterpart.

This has a lot of cinnamon that tends to stay on the tongue. However, it is missing some depth to it, the name implies so much more or maybe I built this one up in my head I am not sure.

Don’t get me wrong this was a nice cup of tea for me today considering it is so bitterly cold out and I always look for a chai to warm me up, it certainly did the trick. Just nothing to rave about.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Clove

Overall a good lemon flavor with just the right amount of tartness without being too sour. Personally most of the time I immediately brew a green teabag in the mug after I finish brewing this one. By then the water has cooled down enough to be green tea friendly and the end result is a very balanced lemon green tea.

Great spice, but I didn’t like the black tea base. Slightly bitter and astringent.

Oddly enough, I preferred their green chai, though that was a long time ago and it was bagged.

Fairly decent overall. Brewed up light and sweet – mostly a weak chocolate flavor but some salted caramel flavor in the background. This is probably one of the best desert flavored teas that I’ve encountered, still I highly doubt I will be buying more when I finish the box.

I thought this one was just an odd combination of flavors. I love jasmine, but I think it’s too light a flavor and scent to work in this application. It just gets drowned out by the cinnamon and orange peel which dominate the cup. Then when you do get a hint of it, it feels out of place in what tastes more like a green chai. Not really my style.

Lovely aroma from the lavender, bergamot and vanilla. In the loose-leaf version that I had, I found their impact on the flavor of the brewed tea was a little muted. There’s definitely some floral character, but it mostly tastes like black tea to me. As I usually tend toward greens, this makes it pretty good in my book, but not a favorite.

What a lovely tea! This is the best tasting Stash tea I’ve had thus far. What a nice balance between the flavours. You can taste each flavour individually, yet they mingle so well together at the same time. The dark chocolate with the peppermint is yummy and the lavender adds such a delightful, floral note and isn’t overpowering in the least. I bought this tea at the grocery store on clearance for less than a dollar! If there are any boxes left when I go grocery shopping next time, I’m going to get more. A perfect herbal tea for night time sipping!

Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Lavender, Peppermint

Bright, sharp lemon flavor with the ginger right behind it, this gets the job done without the strong pepper taste found in other lemon gingers. An occasional tisane for me, to cleanse palate between other choices.

This reminds me of Rooibos tea which tells me right there that I’m not going to love it as I’m not a huge fan of Rooibos based teas and it looks like Honeybush is going to be in the same boat, in my books. Tastes like wood mixed with hay. I can’t detect the vanilla at all which is disappointing. Still, since I really started going outside of my comfort zone and trying different teas, I have learned to appreciate them all for what they are, therefore making none of them totally undrinkable. I wouldn’t purchase this one again but I will finish the box.

Flavors: Hay, Wood
