I had a terrible cold in the Fall and friends of mine dropped off a “get well” basket for me which was very kind of them. This tea was in the said basket. I’ve never been a huge fan of ginger in tea but I have to say, this tea is really well done! I drank it when I was sick and it was quite soothing and comforting. The flavour is right where it should be. Lots of zing from the ginger and it’s definitely at the forefront with the lemon happily bringing up the rear. It’s the kind of tea that puts a smile on your face. President’s Choice did a great job with this one!

This is pretty good-an average cup of peppermint tea at a reasonable price.

I found a new love of mine in latte form. This tastes like chai tea mixed with coffee. This tea is drool worthy.

This tea certainly does the job in calming your nerves, but the flavour can get a bit overwhelming. If you leave the bag in for too long, it gets overly sweet which doesn’t happen with other blends of chamomile I’ve tried. Also I’m not sure why but sometimes it tastes quite sour even if the bag hasn’t been in the cup for very long. I really like the packaging, the name, and the intention behind crafting this tea, but it’s not something I would purchase again or recommend or make for anyone.

I’m not sure how similar this is to PC’s Mulled Apple tea – doing a comparison on the ingredients, there’s a lot in common, but the ingredients are in a slightly different order. At any rate, this tea has a STRONG smell – very cinnamony and spicy. It’s a pleasant smell, though. The taste is lovely and warm, and milder than the scent would suggest, with quite a bit of the cinnamon and apple that’s high on the ingredient list. A very yummy tea.

This did not taste anything like chai, it basically tastes like liquorice! Definitely skip this one and buy another brand.

A good, “grocery store” green tea. The jasmine is not over-the-top and I appreciate that. A nice, mild, satisfying floral tea.

This is a typical hibiscus, rosehip tea. It tastes a bit tart and not very much like raspberry.

The citrus twist on this chamomile tea sounded interesting. In addition to the chamomile and citrus ingredients it also includes several other floral ingredients as well as spearmint. The Chamomile taste was more prominent than all the other ingredients together.

This tastes great and is quite calming as the name suggests. I would recommend this tea to anyone who likes chamomile.

I like the idea of this tea, I like the smell of this tea, but ther flavour, I do not like so much. Mostly because it’s weak and dull. I do not reccomend this one.

Here’s test #2 of my old-stash sipdown.

Let me be clear: I have no idea where this tea came from. My mom moved overseas to teach and my dad was left with her cupboard full of teas. He kept the regular black teas and gave me the rest. I think this was part of that collection.

When I took it out of the sachet, the ginger was overpowering. It almost hurt my nose.

Colour-wise, the hibiscus in this tea makes for a beautiful red colour. I can’t taste any peach, though the ginger is quite lovely. In fact, all I taste is hibiscus and ginger.

Overall, I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy this one. I may just finish the stash and move on.

Woohoo! I think I’m finally out of the low point in my cold. The haze has lifted.

I sipped a large cup of this yesterday at lunch. I must say, I would never drink it if I wasn’t sick, but it felt wonderful. I could really taste the ginger and peppermint. The fennel was a much milder note.

I think I’m going to destash my old tea bags on my lunch. Perhaps this will be a more economic and less wasteful way of finishing them.

Hm, maybe one day I should look into President’s choice teas. Some look very interesting.

Whenever I need to use up a tea I’m kind of “meh” about, I either mix it in with other teas (especially in an iced tea to hide it) or bring it to work since I mostly guzzle my tea mindlessly there anyways.

Alyssa

That’s a good idea, Kristal. I find I don’t have the proper equipment or atmosphere to enjoy a more expensive blend here. I like the idea of making it iced, too. Thanks for the suggestions. :)

Ah, fair enough! And you’re welcome :)

It reminded me of apple cider but not as sweet. Perfect if you like apple cider but don’t want all the sugar.

After steeping the tea for about 15 minutes I removed the bag and it still tasted weak. However the further down I got in the cup the stronger the tea became. The flavor is heavier than water so the taste has the tendency to concentrates at the bottom. If it doesn’t taste strong enough, I recommend to stir it well to bring the taste up from the bottom.

I just kept enjoying the tea more and more as I drank it.

For me this tea was just OK. I found the ginger to be too strong. I am not big into ginger and that might be why I wasn’t crazy about it.

After drinking this tea a few times over the last couple months it is starting to grow on me and I like it more every time I try it.
