Kitchen clean out, lone teabag so no idea of age. Way too mild for my tastes. Reading others reviews, many seem to have the same judgement. I can’t even tell you what it tasted like but maybe that’s because I was in a pre-dawn fog. I ended up combining the brew from my last bag of Yorkshire Tea with Stash’s English Breakfast and was much happier. You know, I haven’t had too many English ‘English Breakfast’ teas but Yorkshire Tea is up there.
This tasty tea is from my swap with AliceG. The fruit flavor is light and a little tangy. A tiny bit of sugar really brings the flavor out. I’d say the flavor is closest to guava, but I also drank the whole mug before looking at what it was supposed to be, so maybe my opinion will change on my next cup. I wish I could find this one at grocery stores around me because I would enjoy drinking more of this! One of the best bagged fruit teas I’ve tasted for sure. They’re usually so sour and nondescript, so this was a nice change.
Packets of this were available, in addition to camomile and peppermint tea bags, at my meditation session last night. I went with this and some added milk.I rarely choose this type of tea at home, but I enjoy it out in the world, especially with added milk or cream.
And then, the whole experience was made even more lovely with a bowl of super sweet individually wrapped milk chocolate bunnies and another bowl of crunchy crust chocolate nut mini Easter eggs.
I can’t remember where I got this, but I wanted to drink something caffeinated yesterday and figured this counts as a sipdown.
The base is nice, lightly vegetal and gets bitter if brewed hot (I didn’t enjoy it as much hot but once it cooled I watered it down and that was much better). The jasmine is very strong and natural. There isn’t much here other than a tippy green tea and jasmine floral scent, but that’s exactly what you expect from a tea called jasmine blossom.
Flavors: Floral, Jasmine, Vegetal
Fruit flavoured green tea sounds like a winner for this morning. But first aroma noticed was rather herbal! What is wrong? Ah, apparently chamomile, hibiscus is in. Citric acid? Why? Anyway – to the tea. I brewed about 80 °C (+) water, it is green tea after all! It doesn´t want to steep at all! It does not change colour much, right now it is some weak red, rather orange. I will keep it there for bit more than suggested 5 minutes.
Aroma – as I said, herbal, now getting some arficial notes of pomergranate, oranges and raspberrries. But it is so artificial I am getting a headache from it. Chamomile in backgroud, and still really strong.
In taste it is metallic, with little fruit notes. No green tea! It is in even? Tart, but not from pomergranate. Everything so weak. Raspberries? Where? Maybe one for whole batch? Matcha? Nonewhere! Even liquor is clear! This iis queer. Chamomile and hibiscus so dominating, fruit notes almost nonewhere and no green tea. I wonder if it is even in.
Not a winner, just plain NAH! Bit better than Arizona I had two months ago, as this was not so sweet. By derk. Thank you experience of good and worse teas. This is unfortunately second group.
Flavors: Artificial, Herbs, Metallic, Orange, Raspberry
Finishing up my last bag of this since I ordered it almost two years ago. I’m not sure why, but I really like Stash’s chocolate teas. It’s not that they’re the best quality; there’s just something about the flavor that I really enjoy. I drink it with milk and a bit of sugar, and it’s great. I’ve never been able to taste any orange, but the chocolate tastes kind of like how I imagine watery hot chocolate mix would be. But in a pleasant way. This tea isn’t for everyone, but it’s for me!
Ever forget you had a box of tea shoved in the back of the cabinet? No, surely not you.
I rediscovered this last night, then immediately left to oversteep while I was cat wrangling (they have an evening monkey hour and engage in all kinds of mischief). I don’t generally add milk to fruity teas, but I did, and it was delicious. Apple pie a la mode.
What in the ever-living duck is this. The bag smells revolting, artificial, medicinal. Dumb and brave — not a winning combination. Here we go.
I’m getting a really strong artificial-medicinal-raspberry/pomegranate acrid smell. Chamomile mixed with hibiscus, which I don’t typically like.
Yeeup, definitely red medicine tasting. Vitamins. Grossly tart, not smooth. There’s no reason to put citric acid in this other than for preserving a poor excuse for tea that you don’t expect to fly off shelves. Where’s the green tea?
This holds my second lowest rating. It would be the lowest but smelling it doesn’t make my stomach turn, it just pisses me off, hehe.
First tasting: This might be too subtle for me, but I’m not willing to write it off just yet. I can smell the chai from the teabag and the cup, yet can’t taste it except for a vague “spice.” Can’t recommend this until I know whether it’s just me or whether it’s the way I brewed it.
Notably used the 185 degrees recommended for white teas on my teapot, rather than the “boiling” temperature recommendation on the tea box so that could be it.
Multiple previous tastings: This is my favorite tea of all time so far. First tried this a few years ago, and have since bought at least 30 boxes. Always 2 tea bags in 16 ounces, brewed for 8 to 10 minutes. It’s very smooth and the licorice taste is nice and strong.
(Edit) Side note: try a good mozzarella with some sort of licorice tea if you can. The flavors in the cheese get wild.
Teabox Tuesday! This is another bagged tea I grabbed to try from the Discovery Teabox, so thank you to Skysamurai for organizing and all participants for sharing! I’ve been leaning heavily on my bagged tea cupboard for sipdowns this month, so I decided to make this for my herbal tea tonight, since I cleared out my entire box of Tension Tamer rather quickly (I’ve had quite a lot of tension to tame lately…)
I really disliked Stash’s Lemon Ginger tea, which I thought tasted like Lemon Pledge cleaner, so I admit I don’t have high hopes going into this. Though, to be fair, the Lemon Ginger tea had “natural lemon flavor” and “natural ginger flavor” which I think tasted really artificial and overbearing to me, and I don’t see any flavorings listed in the ingredients to this tea, it only has lemongrass and meyer lemon oil. The oil might push it over the edge for me (peppermint oil added to tea often makes it taste too strong and artificial to me, when I prefer just peppermint leaf) so I guess I’ll just have to see if it comes out with that super strong, lemon cleaner quality…
Eh. It’s… all right. It’s a bit stronger than I’d like; it’s very sharp and tangy, and I think the strong tartness is actually drawing me back from any possible associations to furniture polish that I could possibly get from having such a strong lemon flavor in the tea. My favorite lemon teas dial back the fruitiness and the tanginess just a bit, but since I have a tongue that can take tart/tangy/sour like some sort of super power, this is all right. But for those that are hibi-hip sensitive? There is no way they could handle this without ample amounts of sweetener. I can drink this plain fine, but I’d probably recommend adding some honey, honestly.
But I do think the lemon oil is faring better for me than whatever flavoring Stash was using in their Lemon Ginger tea, which I still find abhorrent. I’m actually finding this cup pretty pleasant, even if it isn’t my favorite cup of lemon tea.
Flavors: Citrus, Lemon, Pleasantly Sour, Tangy, Tart
(Copied and pasted from other review. I almost had the right tea…)
So time for another chai, this time a grocery store chai I bought just before getting my first Adagio order. It wasn’t even opened and I bought it two months ago so that should be a hint of my excitement level.
Gonna keep things brief, this is an ok chai. Actually, it’s really ok. I’d give it a C+. It’s above average, but not by much. It is however, somewhat better than the Adagio Masala Chai. The flavor is more pronounced, even if it is mostly cinnamon. There’s enough of that in it to make my lip tingle. I’m getting a mild undertone of other spices, but it’s mostly cinnamon. Like I said, slightly above average, but not much.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Clove, Spices
One of my guilty pleasures is a cup of Stash’s decaf vanilla nut, so I saw this flavor on sale (never have I seen it before) and I had to buy it.
I’m four cups in and can say it makes a good latte. I haven’t tried it cold or plain yet, but it really works with a splash of vanilla silk and a long steep. I find the flavor a bit weak, but the hazelnut and vanilla are tasty (but subtle) and the black tea isn’t as strong and malty as it could be. There isn’t anything stand-out about t, but I like desserty teas and it is so difficult to find decaf flavoured teas that aren’t EG or chai.
Flavors: Hazelnut, Nutty, Tannic, Vanilla
I received a box of this for Christmas last year, and I didn’t love it, so I gave most of it away. I have two bags of this left, so I figured I’d use it up. I feel like you can taste the cinammon, ginger, and clove all quite well. I’m not sad that I have only a little of this left, but it’s not the worst. It gets more bitter/tangy as it cools. Hot, it’s decent, but don’t let it cool down too much!
Very thin, tastes almost like coffee grounds in water. The mocha flavor with more chocolate would make an appearance occasionally, but not enough to keep drinking the cup. Maybe improved with milk? The flavor is conflicting because my brain keeps wanting it to be a creamy coffee drink. Tasted 10.2018
Flavors: Coffee, Mocha
