This was the least favorite of mine out of the Teatoxy teas. To me, the best flavor was a short steep – 3 minutes, with sugar, iced. The flavor is quite hibiscus tart, with minty and lemon flavor with a mysterious savory element going on.

The longer infusion (for more benefits stated on the package) the hops comes out adding a savory bitter flavor, with the extended time making the mint taste steamy and grassy, over a lot more tart. Really tart! If you enjoy beer and hops teas, you might like this one, otherwise you might be like me and want less hops flavor as possible.

This tea looks really cool – you need to see it! big flat ribbons of green, weird curly pink things and pretty blue flowers!

The flavor is similar if you have had Bluechai (butteryfly pea flower) before. It has herby, bamboo, celery, vegetal note with a lemongrass finish. This is a neat herbal for something that isn’t the usual floral or mint. Plus, this tea steeps up BLUE! Very blue!

I’m going to have to try the blue tea at some point, just because the colour is so amazing. :)

This was my favorite out of the 3 Teatoxy teas! This one has the concept of morning down for me – it had a comfort feel to it with the combination of fruity and mint, like a lozenge on a cold morning walk to school.

Teatoxy morning has a lemon, hibiscus floral, rosehip tart flavor with a finish of soothing mint and lemon. I enjoy this tea iced and sweetened, but the tart level on its own is drinkable.

So, after treating myself to that special offer of Teatoxy’s, I’ve been rather busy so I haven’t had chance to write up my thoughts! With all of the intrigue around this tea, I had to try this. To my delight, I enjoyed it so much that I tried it again.

The first time I brewed it, I took a spoonful of tea (taking care to get a full mix of ingredients) and brewed it up in a small porcelain cup for around 5 minutes. This produced an amazingly blue liquid – almost ink blue! :O

The smell was nice enough – an unusual, but certainly pleasant, combination of citrus and pastries (NOTE: when I saw ‘pastries’ in someone else’s tags, I assumed it would just be a mild note – I was so wrong! In smell and flavour, this tea shares a clear resemblance with very buttery, freshly baked pastries :O!!!). The flavour was amazing, though – an initial wash of lemongrass subsides to leave a longer lasting flavour of Iranian pastries (that is to say a lovely rose-water flavour, but not too sweet, with a deliciously creamy, pastry flavour). I couldn’t really believe the depth of flavour.

The second infusion was a little less impressive – I used 2.5-3 tsp in 300ml and brewed for 8 mins. It still produced a refreshing, fruity cup, with delicious pastry flavours, but it didn’t bring out as much of the rosewater complexities of the first.

Still, this is a surprisingly delicious tea with an amazingly dark, ink-blue colour. I deffo recommend trying it :D

I think this is one I’ll experiment with a little more! :D

For last night’s pre-bedtime cup, I pulled out this beautiful herbal. The dry leaf is so fresh and natural looking, it’s a joy just to look at! I particularly love the whole-flower hops, the lemon slices, and the hibiscus flowers. Very few herbal blends I’ve come across are composed of such large, generously proportioned ingredients.

As per the recommended parameters, I used 3 tsp of leaf and gave it 3 minutes in boiling water. The resulting liquor is a medium pink-red (thanks to the hibiscus, I guess). Fortunately, hibiscus doesn’t steal the show here. The star ingredient has to be the hops, which add a very herbal, bittersweet flavour. After tea, beer is my second love, and I do tend to pick out hoppier varieties because I like the clean, almost sharp dryness they can contribute. That’s probably partly why I enjoy them in this blend – they’re almost a perfect counterpoint to the tart sweetness of the hibiscus. The lemon slices help also, adding a sharp, zesty flavour to the cup.

This is a tea that tastes like it’s good for you, but in a pleasant way. It’s deeply herbal, but it’s also cleansing and relaxing. Beautiful stuff!

Sounds quite interesting! I’m not a beer person at all, so I’m not sure I’d want a tea with hops in it, but you’ve almost convinced me.

This was last night’s pre-bedtime cup. I figured something calming wouldn’t go amiss given the stress of work at the moment! First things first, and the dry leaf is absolutely lovely — whole hibiscus flowers, whole hops, whole marigold flowers…it’s a difficult one to measure! I did the best I could with the recommendation for 2-3 tsp, and left it for 4 minutes in boiling water. Apparently it can be left for between 3 and 10 minutes, but I erred on the side of caution for my first cup.

I was pleased with the result. The liquor is a pale pink, and smells very herbal. It’s a hard tea to pinpoint in terms of flavour; the initial sip is mostly hibiscus, tart and a little sour. This gives way to a floral flavour…I’m thinking maybe the hops? Again, there’s a touch of sourness in the background. The end note is a sweet, fairly delicate mint. It’s an interesting flavour progression, and one I did find conducive to relaxation. I certainly slept well! It’s not the most tastebud tingling tea, but it’s obviously of quality, and I feel it lived up to its calming promise. I’m happy for it to occupy a place in my cupboard.

Sipdown! This one has been sitting in my cupboard for ages. It was my least favourite of the three Teatoxy blends I tried, one of which I really enjoyed. I adore it for its novelty value – blue tea is a talking point, if nothing else, but I wasn’t over keen on the flavour (I think it was the pandan, but there was something thick and brothy with an edge of intense sweetness that drowned out everything else for me.) I also didn’t feel I gained much from this in terms of the promised energy boost, but maybe that was a little much to expect anyway. I’d not repurchase this one – matcha, guayusa and mate are my go-to energy boost teas, and they generally taste better to boot.

I’ve been drinking this one on-and-off for the last few months, and I’ve come to the conclusion that it doesn’t really work for me, at least from an energizing perspective. I’m not wild about the flavour either, so it’s not one I’d repurchase. It’s definitely my least favourite of the three teatoxy blends.

I do enjoy the effect of the bluechai flowers. That never gets old. Colour isn’t enough to earn this one a long-term place in my cupboard, though.

I was initially attracted to this tea due to its reputed energy-giving properties, and I’ve been drinking it fairly regularly since first receiving it a few months ago. The first thing that stood out about this blend was the quality of the “leaf”. Although this blend is herbal so there’s no actual tea, leaf seems an appropriate term to describe this particular mixture. The pieces of lemongrass are some of the largest I’ve ever seen – minimum 1cm square, with whole rose buds, whole bluechai flowers, and large, curly pandan leaves. The lavender is the only small thing here, with a generous smattering of buds throughout. It’s a really beautiful blend to look at – pink, blue, green, yellow, and purple. A true feast for the eyes.

When brewing a cup, I’ve been following the recommended parameters and using 2 heaped teaspoons of leaf. It would be difficult to measure much less than a heaped teaspoon in any case! This can be left for up to 8 minutes in boiling water, but in this case I went for a more conservative 4.5. I’ve found that this gives the most pleasant flavour (more on that in a moment), and means that the tea hasn’t cooled too much before it’s even finished brewing.

The second thing that stands out about this blend is the colour of the liquor. It’s bright blue. This is due to the inclusion of the bluechai flowers, which give this tea its energising properties. As an added novelty, lemon juice will turn the liquor from blue to purple. Lemon has the added bonus of lifting the flavour a little, making it sharper rather than sweet, and more refreshing, which might be quite welcome depending on your personal taste.

I’ve been drinking this one at work in the afternoons this week, and I think it’s helping to boost my post-lunch energy levels at least a little. Usually, I get into a sleepy slump, but I’ve been feeling a little more alert these last few days. I still find the bright blue colour a little disconcerting, but it’s also kind of cool. No-one else in the office has blue tea, I can tell you that. It tastes a little odd; very floral and herbal. A little like rosewater, to my mind, with a background of hay. It’s palatable, though, and that’s what matters.

I think it’s fair to say that this is one of the most unique teas I’ve ever tried!

It was that faint rosewater flavour, with the hay/grain-like background, I liked most about this tea – it’s almost like a little rosewater flavoured pastry! Surprisingly tasty :D

Well, it’s certainly blue! I’ve never tried a bluechai blend before, but I guess I was expecting something paler. This is seriously blue, and so pretty to look at! I used 2 tsp of leaf and gave it 5 minutes in boiling water. The scent while brewing is almost malty (like you’d smell in a working maltings, or a brewery), and it immediately made me think that this might make a good bedtime drink. Underneath the malt is a heavy floral – lavender and rose, primarily, which adds to the relaxing vibe of this tea.

In terms of taste, this one comes out very close to its scent. The initial taste is maltiness, followed by the floral – lavender first, then rose. This then fades and gives way to lemongrass, which rounds off the sip on a soothing herbal note. I’m guessing its the bluechai or the pandan that are adding the malty scent and flavour, but I have no experience with either so I don’t know for certain.

This is a pleasant cup to drink. Personally, I find the main ingredients here, and the flavour profile, far more suggestive of a calming, relaxing bedtime blend. I probably wouldn’t think of it as an energy giving tea, but that’s just my personal impression. It’s such an unusual blend, and such an unusual colour, that it’s certainly a unique novelty in my cupboard. Another good introduction to Teatoxy – so far, I like what I’ve seen.

I loved Teatoxy’s Calm Me blend, and went through my bag of that so quickly it was unreal. Now that it’s gone, I’m starting to give this one more of a look-in. It’s such a variable tea, it’s actually quite surprising! My last cup was pale pink, with notes of hibiscus, lemongrass, apple and peppermint. This time, the liquor is a deeper red-brown, and the only flavours I can detect are hibiscus and lemongrass, in that order. Strangely, though, I’m not looking on this as a bad thing. For a morning tea, it’s tart freshness is actually quite welcome in a “blow away the cobwebs” kind of way. I guess my experience with this tea varies depending on the exact make up of each scoop of tea. The ingredients are so huge, it can be difficult to get a balanced distribution. In some ways, that just makes it all the more intriguing!

I like lemongrass, so the fresh citrussy burst of flavour here is very welcome. I’m less keen on hibiscus, but it’s not super tart or sour here, so I actually don’t mind it being a part of things. Morning is quickly becoming my second favourite Teatoxy blend. Although their range is small at the moment, I’m quickly beginning to think of their teas as being effective and of reliable quality, in addition to being fairly unique! A company I hope to see more of in future.

This was my morning tea today, and a good choice for a relaxed start. I used 1 tsp of leaf, and gave it around 5 minutes in boiling water. Based on the ingredients list (hibiscus and rosehip) I was expecting a deep red brew, and so I was surprised when I removed my infuser to find a pale pinkish liquor. The main flavour is lemongrass, with its distinctive herbal/hay-like scent and its citrussy top note. Afterwards, I can taste a hint of apple (soft, mushy, sweet apple, rather than crisp, sharp or sour). The hibiscus is fairly prominent in the mid sip, and lingers a little into the aftertaste, but on the whole it’s a fruity, very “herbal” blend. I can’t see any rooibos or mate among the dry leaf, and I can’t taste them either, but maybe my bag just needs a good shake! I found this quite a gentle tea, considering it’s called “morning”, so it’s probably one I’d choose for a late weekend start, rather than a busy work morning when I generally need more of a boot to the rear.

A pleasant blend, all the same, and a good introduction to Textoxy.

I really like looking at the dry leaf for this one too. The Pandan leaves have a most interesting shape, curly and twisty.

This blend has such a peculiar aroma. Pickles. I tried smelling for something else but that’s all that came up. It’s either one ingredient, or all of the ingredients’ aromas mixing together. Or maybe it’s my nose.

For me, the most interesting aspect of this blend is the color of the tea: raspberry blue near the top of the cup and a deep indigo at the bottom. Such an amazing shade. Very pleasing aesthetically. The tea has a thick texture, and, bizarrely, tastes of Fruit Loops. Sweet, sugary, candy-like, a little bit grassy – but mostly Fruity Loops.

There’s something about this one that trips up my senses. It’s one of the most unusual teas I’ve ever had. So no rating. Needless to say, I like it. Recommended for anyone who wants to try something different. I drank this twice before I wrote this review. It pepped me up each time!

I appreciate the dry leaf once again – lovely colors. Despite the list of ingredients on both the website and Steepster, I don’t see any rooibos or mate. They may have sunk to the bottom of the bag (which is hard to dig through). Consequently, I don’t taste any rooibos and mate, but mostly a balanced mix of lemongrass, hibiscus, and mint. I have a hard time tasting the other ingredients.

I do like this blend. Unfortunately, I don’t feel more alert, but relaxed. And it would have been nice to taste the base tea(s), apples, and blackberry leaves. Again, this might have to do with these ingredients being under the ones I can taste.

No wonder the instructions say 2-3 tsp – the dry leaf is full of stuff, especially whole hops and marigold flowers! I could barely fir two teaspoons into the strawberry infuser included in that pack. Smells very minty and fresh. The color of the tea is a lovely magenta, which clearly comes from the hibiscus.

There’s not much to say about the notes of this herbal blend because it’s not complex. At first it tastes tart, then it becomes flowery and grassy. The aftertaste is a little minty. I enjoyed this blend. Perfect for before bedtime!

The first taste of this is the strong flavor of lemongrass. I am confused by the Steepster page saying this tea has Mate, it is clearly not on the ingredient list on the package. In any case the rooibos tea in this takes a back burner. I think despite that name being Teatoxy Morning this would be a good evening tea as it is caffeine free if the label is correct. If the label is wrong and it contains Mate it would be a good morning tea. Overall I like the flavor profile of this tea, although it could use a little less lemongrass. Other reviewers have mentioned a taste of Stevia, there is none on the label either. There are also notes of peppermint and hibiscus. It also has rose hips and apples, I don’t really taste those specifically. There is also a slight, very slight sour taste to this tea. Overall I like this tea.

I brewed this once in a 16oz mug with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for 5 min.

Far too early a morning today, though I got off to a strong start and made pancakes. My impressions of this tea are minty, tart, rosehip, hibiscus, stevia and eulethero or eucalyptus, maybe lemongrass. The hibiscus is there but it’s not overpowering or offensive. This is really, really sweet, without the addition of anything. There’s a cooling tingle on the back of the tongue and throat.

Good but probably the least interesting of the Teatoxy teas, which I have been quite impressed by. The whole concept of detoxing doesn’t make sense to me, but these are tasty teas.

I generally don’t buy into alternative medicine type stuff, unless there’s some research to support it being legit. I was going to skip over these at first because of the detox angle but then they sounded tasty and not full of weird stuff.

Had this again tonight as our caffeine free selection. I had my one partner over for the first time since my other partner moved in a few months ago. It was a nice visit, lots of tea, and I’m looking forward to getting to spend time at both our homes again.

I just really like how balanced this is. Minty and pleasantly bitter and tart and it all just works so well.

I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this, because hibiscus, but this is just lovely.

The dry leaf is very fluffy, with large pieces of hops and hibiscus, whole corn flowers and lemon wedges. Very pretty, and 2-3 teaspoons for a cup really doesn’t even make a dent in the bag.

The dry lea smells primarily like mint. Steeped the citrus and hibiscus fragrance comes out a bit more. The cup is a lovely deep red.

The directions recommend steeping for 3 to 10 minutes. I started with 3, which was plenty potent, but then put the leaves back for a longer steep just to see how the hops would develop. I forgot that I was resteeping, so I probably got between 5 and 7 minutes total instead of the 4 I was aiming for. There was a bit more hoppiness, though still very pleasant and not overly bitter, and well balanced mint and citrus. The hibiscus works very well in this, and combines nicely with the lemon to give it a nice tartness. The slight bitterness and the citrus are very reminiscent of lemon rind and grapefruit, even with that slight tongue tingle.

I’m really pleased with this. I thought it might end up being too sour or in need of sugar, but I think it was pretty perfect as is.

Ermagherd, this tea is blue! Really, really blue! I’m drinking it from my TARDIS mug and it’s damned close in colour.

The dry leaf is really pretty and extremely fluffy. The directions say 2 heaping teaspoons per cup, which sounds like a lot of leaf, but really isn’t that much. There are whole blue and yellow flowers, pink rose petals, big strips of pale green pandan leaves and curls of lemongrass shavings. There’s supposed to be lavender in here too, but I don’t see or smell it.

An 8 minute steep yields a deep blue cup that quite mild tasting. The dominant notes are lemongrass, pandan and rose. It’s pretty herbal tasting, but not in that generic herbal health teas kind of way. The rose remains distinct and builds through the finish and the pandan kind of takes on a pastry-like note.

I don’t really know which ingredients in this are supposed to be energizing, and I don’t buy into the whole idea of detoxing, but this is tasty and pretty and that’s good enough for me.
