Bought a box of the prebagged tea around Christmas time. Thought it would be a great addition to my winter months collection of warm me up teas. I made a cup of hot brew the next day and nearly cried when I tried to swallow down the first sip. I gave it the benefit of the doubt and resisted the urge to dump the glass, but even the fourth sip was revolting.

I had hoped for a lovely winter mint tea, instead all I could taste was the ginger. Fortunately my oldest daughter loves the taste and has taken over ownership of this box of teas that I would ultimately toss in the trash.

Bergamot heaven! This is real bergmot extract added to the earl grey tea, and for bagged tea, this is one of the BEST. I always try and have a box in my cupboard. So tasty with a splash of milk!

Flavors: Bergamot

Or without a spash of milk! (It’s kimd of like asking for tea with lemon and milk)

Earl grey with a bit of lavender! A nice change from Stash’s amazing double bergamot earl grey which is always in my cupboard. The vanilla and lavender is delicate, subtle and not overpowering. It’s a really elegant tea.

With a tiny hit of cashew milk.

This was pretty nice; mostly a creamy chocolate flavour with a softer, cooling mint finish. The cashew milk was nice because it added a mild nutty undertone and kind of played up the very soft roast of the oolong. As far as bagged teas goes, this is a decent one – and you can’t be the convenience. I was in a MAJOR rush trying to make tea and still catch the bus on time, and this was a life saver in that regard.

I wonder how many mint/chocolate teas I have though? This is a combo I’ve been drinking a lot more of lately so I know it’s a decent amount. Like, at minimum, I can think of at least three I have? I wonder if it’s more though. This is the problem with cupboard explosions: you lose track of exactly what you have on hand…

…yes, I bought bagged tea.

This was pretty much a hardcore impulse purchase; however, it WAS on sale for like 99 cents a box which is a hell of a deal plus I have been curious about this particular flavour combo from Stash for literal years so I think it was worth the buck spent on it.

Actually, it’s not bad! I steeped this one up at work today, near boiling water for four minutes and it was REALLY smooth with a very nice, creamy chocolate flavour and a cooling peppermint finish. Sweet, and refreshing. I felt like I was channeling some serious “Aero Mint” chocolate bar flavours, too. Totally not as good as I’d imagine a loose leaf version with a higher quality oolong base could be but I think this is a completely viable option for just hard core lazy brewing, or for travel.

Really, I didn’t mind it at all!

I made this iced. It’s an odd one. I do not like pomegranate. I don’t like eating it and I don’t like anything pomegranate flavoured. The combination of cranberry/pomegranate/rooibos makes this taste slightly “off”. The cranberry flavour saves it from being completely awful. I will get through the box but won’t purchase again.

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.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Clove, Creamy, Ginger, Milk, Nutmeg, Nutty, Smooth, Spices, Tannin, Vanilla

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!

Flavors: Cake, Cheesecake, Cocoa, Creamy, Raspberry

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.
