I often order this tea at my local cafe, though its flavors aren’t my favorite. The chammomile is very soothing, but I prefer spicier blends. Still, I like how the mint feels refreshing and balances out the chammomile nicely. For those who love soothing teas or chammomile, I recommend this tea!

May Flowers! Apparently this seems to be a “love it or hate it” tea, but I am most definitely in the “love it” category, and it has remained a permanent staple in my cupboard ever since I tasted my first cup at local coffee haunt Twin Beans on a cold winter day when I was in an herbal mood. The leaf has an aroma that reminds me of root beer, and the tea is such a relaxing warm brew! I pick up a minty flavor that is a bit like a cross between spearmint and wintergreen, and as the mint closes there is this honeyed sweetness and slight anise note, and those flavors combined taste like root beer on my palate. There is a minty sweetness that lingers on the tongue and is just wonderful!

This tea includes chamomile and lavender, and I can make out a very subtle chamomile flavor, but thankfully for me it is so well blended into the mix of herbals that I hardly even notice it (I have a particular dislike for the flavor of chamomile), and though I love lavender, I don’t notice its flavor at all in this blend. However, I still get a very relaxed sensation whenever I sip on this tea. I love to drink this before bed; it’s sweet, yet very soothing.

Since this tea has such a strong “root beer” flavor note for me, I decided to try it as an iced tea for the first time. I was surprised how well it still holds up! Honestly, I think I still prefer it warm, because there is just a really relaxing feeling to the hot aroma and feel of the warm tea and the way the particular flavors sort of linger on the tongue, but the iced tea still has a very nice, refreshing flavor. It still has a very minty taste with that sweetness that tastes similar to root beer, but I think it comes across just a little more subdued, like certain notes have gotten lost in the chill. I think I may add some honey to my iced pitcher and see if that doesn’t spruce it up; I don’t normally sweeten my teas, even my iced ones, but I have found in the past that sometimes helps my chilled brew. I certainly won’t have any troubles finishing the quart, regardless.

Hopefully they don’t discontinue it. It sounds delightful I love how well licorice and spearmint type flavors pair together.

It won their “Customer Favorite” award in 2016, so I’m hoping that will mean this one will be saved from their purging practices. I’m pretty bummed to discover they are getting rid of their Strawberry Oolong. * sad face *

Here’s Hoping Teabox – Round Seven- Tea #31
I noticed that this won Tea Source’s best tea award or something so I was kind of expecting more from this herbal. I just seem to taste chamomile with hints of mint. Nothing I would love, and not a great representative of Tea Source’s teas. Not bad, just not special. Lot of ingredients but the flavor is so plain. Trying to catch up on notes from the teabox, so three tasting notes today!

Huh, I just happen to have that tea, to me it smells and tastes like sarsparilla with a touch of mint, it is one of my favorite evening herbals. I really enjoy it.

I wish it tasted like that, ha. Maybe I didn’t brew it right, or didn’t shuffle the ingredients.

I had one by this name from Montana Tea and Spice. I thought it was good and loved the aroma. My husband was so traumatized by it that he still can’t think about it…and it was years ago that we tried it. I think it is the same tea.

Just goes to show that each tongue is as unique as our fingerprints!

Thank you to Inkling for the sample!

mmmm tastes like a creamy, frothy rootbeer! Of course, they added stevia, which was completely unnecessary. Some

Sweet sarsaparilla/rootbeer with lots of vanilla and cream. I like the chamomile and wintermint combination. This is a really tasty herbal, but I hate stevia and wish they had left that out.

I started drinking this tea recently but it’s quickly become my favorite tisane. All the herbs blend together perfectly, nothing overpowering the other herbs, an aftertaste like birch beer. Tastes good hot or cold, though it tastes a little sweeter if you let it cool. It doesn’t need any sweetener, though I sometimes add a little honey.
I usually steep it 6 minutes but it can probably steep for less than that, I’m used to black teas and this tea looks light yellow in my glass pot but it’s stronger than it looks. This tea can be steeped at least twice and still taste as strong as the first steeping.
This tea is something of a cure-all too.
