From TTB 2019/2020.
I’m always on the lookout for a good decaf black tea, so I knew I wanted to try this one even though Stash doesn’t have the greatest track record in my book. Unfortunately, as soon as I opened it I knew it wasn’t for me. The first thing I noticed was the strong smell of root beer or sarsaparilla. It’s one of my least favorite flavors in tea and there it was, front and center. It might as well have been a licorice tea. No thanks. I’m drinking it anyway and trying to appreciate it for what it is. I do taste the spices, indistinct as they are. Not really any pumpkin, though admittedly this is called pumpkin spice and so is not necessarily trying to be a pumpkin tea. I’ll finish it, but it’s definitely not my favorite. Hopefully someone receiving the box after me will enjoy the final bag of this one.
Flavors: Artificial, Sarsaparilla, Spices
I love melon flavored teas, so had to add this to my Stash order. Lupicia’s melon flavor is the ultimate for me, so I find myself comparing all others to it. This doesn’t quite measure up. It lacks the juiciness that I find so pleasant in Lupicia’s, and errs more on the cucumber side of the spectrum.
The best way to describe this tea is “meh.” It isn’t bad, but it isn’t awesome. I think my biggest gripe is that it is a very weak tea. Stash is notoriously weak in my opinion. This tea tastes okay, but I wouldn’t buy it again and don’t crave it like I do my other teas. It has a very muted chocolate taste, like gas station hot chocolate where too much water was added. It also has strange floral undertones which I find compete with the already light chocolate flavour. And mocha? I don’t taste any coffee at all. It is a drinkable tea, and I will use it up but I wouldn’t buy it again as I prefer a stronger cup. This might be your jam if you like very very light tea.
Flavors: Chocolate, Floral, Fruity, Hibiscus, Rosehips, Vanilla
First attempt at this one wasn’t particularly successful…thin and not much mocha. However, I wasn’t being especially attentive to preparation or drinking, either one. This may need some beefing up with milk and sweetener. We’ll save a final judgment call for a cup that I wasn’t guzzling while working on a writing assignment, tending to laundry, and making cookies.
The cookies turned out fine…this season, I’m missing my mom and sister so for some unknown reason, I am compensating by making some of their Christmas recipes that I remember fondly. (Mind you, I generally do not cook or bake; I reheat and assemble.)
The cookies in question are made in a skillet, not in an oven—like Rice Krispie treats with dates, gumdrops, and nuts, rolled in powdered sugar.
There’s some interesting alchemy going on with this one. I sipped my first cup bag-in. My weary senses (it was a l—o-o-o-o-oo-ng day at work) picked things up in this order: peppermint, then chocolate, then yep—the crazy little lavender lilt at the end. I kept thinking how good it would be paired with a box of Russell Stover chocolate creams.
1 bag for 250mL water @100C, steeped 7 minutes, drunk bare.
I didn’t expect to like this one so much. The description on the packaging doesn’t do it justice. With a decently long steep — I find tisanes need that — you get a thick and creamy mouthfeel, loads of cocoa and mint in the scent, less so in the taste, and a subtle finish of lavender. It was the lavender that’s made me hesitate all these years, but I’m glad I finally tried this one today.
Aa ever with the tisanes and some blends, Stash knocks it out of the park. I find this as satisfying, and certainly more relaxing, as a good mint hot chocolate. Really impressed.
Mmmmmmm what a scrumptious cup. Mint teas are very hit or miss for me, but sometimes I crave the chocolate/mint combo, and this really hit the spot. I love the mild oolong combined with the creamy chocolate, and cool peppermint. A splash of oat milk made this the perfect morning cup of comfort.
Flavors: Chocolate, Peppermint
Enjoyed this unsweetened and without milk. Not sure why I made that choice, as I usually prefer my chais the opposite. I did enjoy the balance of spices, but as expected, thought it would’ve been much better with cream and sugar. I couldn’t quite taste the rum or gingerbread. I definitely got more of a straightforward cinnamon/ginger blend.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Ginger
Note to those of you contemplating buying a house: Make absolutely sure you are UPHILL from the neighbors, and not vice versa. Otherwise, you will be dealing with fallen leaves from your trees and those of three additional back yards above you.
After Round One of the Annual Autumn Foliage Offensive (more skirmishes to follow), I was done with loose leaves for the day. Bagged tea for me, thank you!
Hubby brought this one home on a whim. Reviews here on Steepster aren’t particularly complementary, but based on the review dates, it’s been a Stash regular for at least 10 years, so somebody’s drinking it.
On its own, it’s a little thin, but the chocolate and hazelnut flavors are sweet and not chemically-tasting. With milk, it is gentle and creamy and suitable for evening sipping.
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!
