The smell of this teabag when I opened the was frankly awful, I’m not sure what I was expecting but it wasn’t something that smelled like spoiled cheese. I almost threw it out right there and then, but I decided to give it a chance. The flavour is tolerable, but not really what I’d call salted caramel. It’s mostly a smokey mate flavour with (very) burnt sugar notes. I’m glad I only grabbed one teabag.

It can get strong very fast, so don’t over-steep. But it’s got a very nice autumny, spicy taste!

The description sounded scrumptious so of course I had to try! I was a little underwhelmed in the beginning. I added a splash of milk and could only smell the cherry. The chocolate flavor I was only picking up as an aftertaste. However, I was hit with the black forest cake flavor once I got through a little more than half the cup of tea. It was very nice and would have paired well with a chocolate dessert. I probably won’t reach for this tea often and I’ll have to play around with the length of time I let this one steep. But overall, it wasn’t bad!

Flavors: Cherry, Dark Chocolate

I found this tea to be pure delight in my cup of breakfast tea this morning. It reminds me of lady grey tea by Twinings but it goes the extra step of pleasing me with the added lavender and vanilla. I added a little half & half and just a drop of vanilla extract to really bring out the lavender/vanilla and gone down the bergamot. This will definitely be something I drink regularly!

Flavors: Bergamot, Lavender, Vanilla

Before I formally begin this review, allow me to offer a warm thanks to S.G. Sanders for providing me with an opportunity to try this tea. I am planning on doing a side-by-side shootout between this and the loose leaf Harney & Sons Paris this weekend. I like both, but there are some subtle and not so subtle differences between the two.

I prepared this tea using a one step Western infusion. I steeped 1 teaspoon of loose material in 8 ounces of 208 F water for around 5 minutes. Obviously, I did not attempt any additional infusions.

Prior to infusion, I noticed that the dry leaf material produced a pleasant aroma of vanilla, bergamot, and lavender. After infusion, the lavender, bergamot, and vanilla aromas intensified. They were also joined by a subtle toasty character and a hint of cocoa. In the mouth, the notes of lavender, vanilla, and bergamot were most definitely dominant. I was able to detect fleeting impressions of toast, cream, and cocoa beneath them.

I like this blend. It is not nearly as fruity as the Paris blend from Harney & Sons and is very smooth in the mouth. There was not a tremendous amount of body, but I did not expect there to be. Flavored teas are usually a little light in terms of body, at least in my perception. Anyway, this is a nice, straight-forward blend. I would have no difficulties recommending it to fans of flavored teas.

They’re two different breeds of blends; however, they’re both nice in their own way. I’m glad you enjoyed this! :)

I love this tea while reading and listening to music at night. It just may be my favorite.

Very lemony! I usually don’t like hibiscus but it works here. Sour, but pleasantly so. I like it.

Perfectly decent peppermint tea, not too bitter or bland. I don’t like it quite as much as Yogi Purely Peppermint, but I would still definitely drink it again, and it’s great for calming you down and for soothing upset stomachs.

The smell of maple was overwhelming (almost sickening) and only aromatic, I didn’t taste much maple in the tea. Overall it wasn’t very good. I’ll be giving the rest of it away.

Chamomile and spearmint. Nice for the evening time, before bed.

Yup. Still drinking this stuff daily. I bought a second box, so I guess that means I’m hooked. I don’t know what it is about this tea, but I like it a lot. And unlike some of my other teas, the low price means I don’t have to use it sparingly.

Hey Steepster, I’m back. I miss this. Life has been so all over the place with school that I barely have time to breathe.

These days it’s very hard for me to collect and experiment with new teas, but this one is growing on me. I bought a box at random when it was on sale at the store, and it’s proven to be a comforting and easy choice when I’m low on time and/or energy. It’s nothing special, but I’ve always enjoyed the combination of warm ginger and sweet fruit. There are few bagged teas I truly enjoy, but this is one I would buy again.

I might be in the minority here, but when it comes to price and taste, I think I prefer Stash’s Jasmine Blossom green tea to other pre-bagged jasmine green teas. the jasmine flavor comes out more than in other brands. I’m not great at writing reviews (yet), I’ll leave it at this for now.

This was one of the teabags packaged as a sample with my Stash order. Should be renamed “clove water”, or maybe “double clove chai”. That’s all you taste and all you smell. Cinnamon? Ginger? Nutmeg? Nope! All clove, all the time.

With sugar it tasted like purple jellybeans, which, admittedly, I like. Not enough however, to ever seek this tea out again. Stay away if you don’t like a lot of clove flavor.

Their premiun organic green tea is great, but I think most of their other teas are fails. I have 3 boxes sitting here that I will probably never use.

It’s 33 degrees celcius today, more with the humidex. I am just relaxing with a glass of iced Moroccan Mint tea.

It’s a deep yellow colour, more yellow than the green tea alone. I have tried their premium organic green tea as well (see review) and the quality is excellent, so I was interested how the addition of mint would change it.

The combination of lemongrass and peppermint and spearmint reminds me a bit of lipton’s
Chamomile tea. All in all it is a cool and refreshing drink.

I used double bags and 200 mL of water for 2 min to boil this.

I enjoy the heat, and this drink reminds me of Turkish people sitting around with small glasses of mint tea.

I had a cup of tea this morning and decided to try something new and bizarre to highlight the flavor of the tea and cover any over steeped green tea flavors. I always hold my green tea down on the bottom of the cup while it’s brewing with a long spoon. When it was done brewing since I wanted a brothy flavor I added some of Penzey’s roasted garlic powder, and Penzey’s the now curry blend. This spice blend gave it a rich green tea savory curry broth flavor. The Penzey’s curry blend I used has a bunch of spices in it so it does not taste like plain curry powder.

Weird. Soup mix from instant Ramen might work well too.

My first time tasting this tea I used about 8.5 oz of water and added nothing to it it was horribly disappointing, this time around I used a little under 8 oz of water and steeped it for at least 7-8 minutes using boiling water. Then I added a bit of ceylon cinnamon, penzley’s spice mixed cinnamon , and a bit of Silk unsweetened vanilla cashew milk. I found that this method really brought out the tiramisu/white chocolate flavor undertones. It is a soothing sugar free dessert at bedtime.
