Day 2 Etsy Tea Advent Calendar

I am not a fan of green tea. It always has a grass clippings edge to me. I almost didn’t brew it. But heck, it’s just one bag; why not try it? I like coconut.

Did not like this one. Glad I tried it, but I am not getting any coconut, only that grass clipping coating on the back of my tongue. Even worse, it is grass clippings that have been rained on and then sat in a very hot sun too long.

Others who like green tea might very well enjoy this one more. It is not for me. Even if a friend served this I wouldn’t drink it. So far my my tea advent calendar is 0 for 2. But we have 22 more days, so surely there will be some I like. Meanwhile, I think I will brew myself a little something I know I like.

Whoops! so apparently I thought today was National Coconut Torte Day Sipdown Challenge.
It’s actually tomorrow. I discovered I actually have 5 teas in my cupboard that have coconut so I’ll be drinking those tomorrow as well.
This one was better with some soymilk and sweetener added but next time I’ll just purchase the Moroccan Mint tea from this company. Since I really love that one!

This company still exisits? :O I have only a few tea bags from them in my collection… Well, maybe one day I will place an order as well.

I’d never heard of them before but my local natural organic type store has this brand on sale every once in awhile. (:

I checked their website and it seems they are still operating. Maybe one day I will place the order :)

Oh nettle tea- I do love nettle tea but not purely because of the taste. That just comes with the territory of a lot of nettle teas. It’s a kind healthy tea and can grow on you, especially with some honey or rock sugar.

Compared to many other brands’ nettle tea I can say H&H’s has a more fresh notes than the more flat medicinal taste. Maybe it’s how they process and dry the tea that has it less, crumbly. Not a bad tea/herb to sneak into other blends and brews either.

This is also a taster tea bag I received recently. Not exactly the type of tea I would buy (neither the green tea nor (even less, really) the coconut), but I´m always willing to try out things, teas for instance. I prepared the tea as indicated on the tea bag and the first thing I noticed was the colour : grassy green. It smells like freshly cut grass as well, the coconut coming through in a very subtle way. In mouth there are aspects I like (coconut subtle and natural) and others I´m not a fan of (again the grass-like flavour)…unlike other green teas which can be very “weak” even if steeping for a while, this tea is quite the opposite, whether it concerns its taste, smell or visual appearance. This might really be appreciated by others, it´s not my cuppa…

Ooh, yummy. I love Heath & Heather teas. Very very coconut-y (with the addition of some Truvia). Light, flavorful, can’t even taste the green tea. Lovely.

Received in a tea swap from my Instagram account (http://instagram.com/teatravelninja) from a lovely Polish lady. Thank you!

This tea is AMAZING at eliminating bouts of cystitis or burning sensations when urinating. It it a brilliant all round cleanser and my mornings are not complete without it. The taste takes a bit of getting used to (I could barely stomach it at first), but after a few cups it really becomes favourable.

I usually team 2 Nettle bags up with 2 Heath and Heather Green Tea bags for a cleansing morning boost.

The bags are unbleached, natural and smooth to touch, this company really cares about execution of their product to the very last detail.

I love this brand and flavour of tea! I usually use 2 of these bags teamed with 2 Heath and Heather Nettle Tea bags for a super cleansing morning kick. Not bitter like other brands of green tea, tea bag material is lovely, unbleached, natural and smooth to touch.

A sipdown, although oddly it wasn’t listed in my cupboard even though I did get some in a swap from KittyLovesTea just before (after?) the holidays. Thank you!

I only had a sip of this, because I made a large mug-full for my daughter. It tasted like chunky applesauce, the kind you make after a day of picking apples and then quickly throw whatever you can on the stove. My daughter says it’s wonderful as-is, so I’m happy she’s got a decaf she’s enjoying.

Mmmmm….wow, this sounds lovely. Glad she enjoys it!


I may (?) have put one bag of this in your last package. I’m blanking out though… I guess you’ll find out soon enough! :)

This is a little too delicate for my taste as I find it hardly has any flavour at all.

Someone offered me a box of this tea because they tried it and did not like it. Instead of just saying “well if you think its gross, I don’t want it”, I took it anyway. Having to try it just to see if it really is gross or not.
My nicest opinion is, I did not like it at all!!!!!
Its bagged tea. I was suspicious it may be a “weight loss tea” but there were no suggestive ingredients I was scared of.
Brewed it smelled delicious. Light sweet cinnamon and ginger. But on first sip I almost fell off the chair. It is super duper sweet licorice root and aspertame. I cannot taste anything else. The box does not list aspertame as an ingredient so I am not sure why I am getting this taste. On each subsequent sip it got stronger and stronger and 10 minutes later there is a licorice root aftertaste in the back of my throat.
I would not say this is a “bad” tea, but it certainly does not agree with my taste buds.

I thought that this tea was beautifully colored – that heavy, vibrant purple-red that immediately tells you that this tea is not weak. Sweeter than most teas on its own, I’d still suggest some form of sweetener to help it along. Overbrewing makes it taste medicinal. Tastes better iced. Can convince the kids to drink this one.

Tea bags were not strong – even before opening, there was loose tea floating around the box. Use an infuser even with the tea bag.

Considering all of the tarty-berry ingredients as well as the hibiscus and rosehips this doesn’t have an overwhelming tarty-fruity aroma (or at least one that I can’t handle)

The color scares me! Mostly because it goes from purple to grey-purple to red to red-purple, etc thanks to that dreaded hibiscus!

Oddly…this doesn’t taste too bad!

WOW! I’m shocked! This is pretty good! Even with that “H” word in there! LOL

It says a blend of Raspberries, Strawberries, and Cranberries! That in itself seems to be happening here! The Raspberry and Strawberries are juicy and plump but are toned down by the cranberry notes of slight bitterness. The all play well together. I can also taste the apple a little. It’s a nice touch. The hibiscus seems to work well here. This is good hot but even better cold!

I’m impressed!


I thought of another word for H …….Hellacious Hibiscus [as in a very bad way], but apparently they’ve used it sparingly in this one! That’s a good thang. :))

The weather is changing and my ankles and legs are achy…I’m hoping it’s just the weather. I thought I would start drinking more lemon as well as ginger because of their anti-inflamation and healing properties.

And because I am in the middle of a project and wanted to drink and log something that I already reviewed instead of starting with a brand new tea/tisane!

Still liking this one. Near cold brewed…let’s say “luke warm”


I picked up some Ginger Pu Erh from Davids today as a medicinal/winter warm up kind of tea.

This one is totally exceeding my expectations! The lemon is REAL Lemon! REAL-Tasting Freshly Squeezed LEMON!!! The Ginger is nicely done! Not too overwhelming and pretty soothing. It’s a nice addition to the lovely lemon! This has Apple in it but I can’t pick that flavor out above or aside from the others but I’m sure it serves a purpose – I’m thinking the purpose being to de-pucker the lemon, but that’s just my assumption. They could have done withOUT the the Chickory – BUT – it’s not bothersome and is barely-there so I can completely live with it.

The lemon is wonderful and tap dances circles around many other brands attempts! And it’s BAGGED.

YUMMO! Splitting this box with LiberTEAs!

As far as herbal tisanes go – this is among my faves thus far!

Between the color of this and KNOWING it has hibiscus in it – I was down-right-afraid! I was afraid it was going to be all Hibiscus! BUT…The Blackcurrants are powerful – moreso than the Hibiscus. I’m not saying it isn’t tart – it is – it’s just not hibiscus and nothing else type tart! The Blackcurrant is the primary flavor here and it’s juicy sweet and sour. The Lemongrass and Licorice are way-way-way in the background but seem to play a part. Maybe the part is to tone down the tartiness a bit…not sure.

Even tho this is fruity-tarty-POW! I can accept that. I had a half cup hot and a half cup iced. HOT fruity teas really aren’t my thing but it was bad. Iced – this has the potential to be a nice treat as long as you don’t over steep it :)

I have to say I discovered this tea when I was in a bad place.
My first job was spiritually, emotionally, and physically draining me. I felt my soul lament that all the years of study, could not be for this. Lunch time would come and I would dash out the door, it didn’t matter where I went. I spent a lot of time in the library those days. And occasionally dared to dart into town (even tho it meant running to get back). That is where I found this tea.

It became my lifeblood. It sustained me with its happy scent and invigorating powers at 3pm when I had another 3hrs+ of consulting before the day would end, let me free only to start again the next day.

Good news – I left that job.
Better news- I found an amazing tea.

The cinnamon is powerful but softened by the apple. Almost flowery in taste, sunshine on the tongue. Hollands and Barrett’s is where I tend to find it wandering, should you have your eye out :)
