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!

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

It’s nice having a decaf black tea for when I want a chai to drink in the evenings. There are some half-decent rooibos chais but it’s not the same and they aren’t much good with milk for the most part. Some decaf teas end up tasting thin and watery do to the decaffeination process but this one still has its flavour and robustness. The spice blend is nice and warm with a distinct nutmeg flavour and cinnamon scent dominating.

Better then I expected since pomegranate can get overdone very fast. I like the strawberry with the pomegranate. Milder flavor, I like to drink it in the evening after dinner. Caffeine free and also the fruity makes it feel like dessert.

This one was a surprise to me, I really didn’t know what to expect but the flavors really come together well. Not a strong tea and does at least two steepings well, I didn’t have time for a third steeping. I think this one that will become an everyday favorite.

Yummy, really enjoy this one. Flavors blend well together and reminds me a dessert. Definitely has a great scent and flavors really well. Have not tried a second steeping on one of the bags yet but I am guessing it will work well with this tea.

Strong flavours of sweet spearmint and peppermint, a bit of ginger, Definitely one of the best bagged teas if you want a cheap and tasty spearmint green tea (Moroccan mint).

Love this tea! At first I wasn’t a fan and found the flavour very mild and bland with just one bag. I now brew it in a pot with 2-3 bags for a minimum of 7 minutes. Add a touch of sugar and milk for a delicious, creamy tea latte.

This was one of the first herbal teas I ever tried many years ago and still love it to this day. Super flavourful and sweet with a bit of tartness. I’m a big fan of raspberry and hibiscus teas and this one will always be my go to!

How so you say hello to fellow tea lovers you’ve lost touch with over the last 4.5 years?! Let me start by saying I still am a Tea Fanatic, and continue to drink all kinds of tea every day! I also have been into Craft Beer, and drink the occasional cup of coffee! In July 2012, when I last posted, I had no intention of leaving Steepster, but after a Summer & Fall with my Niece Brie, I lost touch. Through many good times and some not so good, life went on as life always does. In late December after a trying year, I decided to get back to reviewing teas, because it’s just one thing I enjoy! :D

The last several years, as the Holiday Season ends, I extend my Holiday tea consumption with those special teas through the second Monday in January. This is also the the last College football game for the season-The National Championship! I know it’s Tuesday, but I wanted to review this tea. So the easiest way to do this, and without further ado, is to begin the tea review! :D

Ingredients:

Decaffeinated black tea, cinnamon, ginger root, natural pumpkin spice flavor, clove, nutmeg oil.

Let me start by saying I do not drink many decaffeinated teas, because 99%+ are very bland IMHO. This tea is one exception, and even though I can’t really taste much of the black tea base, the additional flavors, make for a satisfying cup of tea!

The dry teabag smells mainly of clove ginger, and pumpkin spice. The wet leaves in the bag reveal more clove & pumpkin spice, but what really surprised me was the cinnamon! The cinnamon with its sweet, spicy character really came to the forefront. In the cup the scents were not as intense, but cinnamon and pumpkin spice—and to a lesser extent—the ginger & clove had a very calming effect on me. :D My palate enjoyed the cinnamon and pumpkin spice flavors. Upon swishing & swirling the tea, ginger and clove awoke from their slumber only to cling & reside on the back of my tongue! Maybe it’s my lack of exposure to nutmeg in tea, but I really had trouble isolating it in relation to the other flavors.

This Pumpkin Spice blend is quite flavorful, and worth a try. It is a perfect tea to sip and share on Steepster with my tea friends, and a great way to say “Hello!” after a long hiatus—too long in fact! This tea says: “Come In!”, “Welcome!”, as it warms my heart, and I feel as if I’ve not been away very long at all. :D

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!! :D

Welcome back!

quietcreation

I’m really glad you came back on here. I think I came upon your reviews with the one on Red Rose and I just thought you wrote very well and sounded like a nice guy. It’s definitely been a rough year for me as well. Tea can help at times with its warmth or to share with others. Some times I just look forward to a cup when I get home from work to relax a little. I like craft beer as well, and used to drink coffee also. My stomach isn’t able to handle it very well anymore though.
This tea sounds nice, especially at this time of year. Hope your new year is better!

Thanks QC!! All the best to you too! :D

I really enjoy this tea. I was first taking this with plant milk and sugar but then tried it without the plant milk and maple syrup instead and it’s delicious this way. It is just after Christmas and when I still see it on the shelves I scoop it up so that it lasts me a while before it disappears.
