drank Peppermint Leaves by Teapigs

Like many peppermint teas, this tastes weird hot, but is super nice cooled. I love mint teas, and I loved how many leaves were in the bag. Bright, tasty mint. No complaints! I probably prefer their licorice and peppermint blend though.

drank Chocolate and Mint by Teapigs
574 tasting notes

I’ve been drinking a lot of mint chocolate teas during the cold season, and this is one of the best ones by far! Instead of just mint like many others, I get a sweet creaminess that I still wouldn’t call chocolate, but it definitely makes this one special.

drank Sweet Ginger by Teapigs
574 tasting notes

Okay this might be my new favorite bagged ginger tea. The flavor is so strong, but the licorice and cinnamon add a wonderful sweetness to the end of the sip. It’s pleasantly spicy and the flavor is so strong and fulfilling. My favorite Teapigs tea so far!

drank Popcorn Tea by Teapigs

This isn’t one of the better genmaichas I’ve had unfortunately. It tastes pretty decent; I’ve just had better ones. The toasty flavor is there. The green tea itself has a pretty light presence. The resteep was similar to the first steep.

drank Snooze by Teapigs

I loved the lavender flavor in this one. Most of the blend is apple, and I’m not sure why because it contributed nothing. Otherwise it was tasty lavender softened by a nice chamomile. I would definitely drink this one again. It’s one of the better lavender blends I’ve had lately.

Apple, lavender, chamomile…all on my shelves…I’m thinking this would be an easy homebrew in the proportions of one’s preference!

You’re so right! When my mountain of tea is smaller, I definitely want to make my own lavender blends because I love lavender everything.

The main flavor here is licorice. The mint is there subtly as well. I feel like 30 seconds after I’ve swallowed I can really taste the mint along with that classic lingering licorice flavor. I drink a lot of bagged licorice teas at work, and I have to say that this is right up there with the best of them. The sachet was also very full, so the flavor is stronger than other teas in my 14 oz travel cup. Anyway Teapigs is way more expensive than other bagged teas, so unfortunately I probably wouldn’t purchase this over other not quite as good brands. But this is super good.

drank Super Fruit by Teapigs

I didn’t like this one hot, so I put it in the fridge for later. Cold, it tastes like Jello, but I don’t find that unpleasant in this context. It was pretty smooth and provided quite an accurate red Jello flavor. I’m sure that’s not what they were going for, but it worked.

drank Rooibos & Honeybush by Teapigs
574 tasting notes

The flavor is a little peppery. It could be richer and sweeter. In general, I think the quality of the rooibos/honeybush just isn’t as nice (or to my preference) as what other brands have. So this cup was perfectly drinkable, but not at all special.

drank Calm by Teapigs
574 tasting notes

The was a nice tea to have at work since it’s one you don’t really have to think about. It’s largely chamomile. There are other flavors in there too, but they take a back seat. Not bad, but not special.

drank Lemon and Ginger by Teapigs
574 tasting notes

Lemon ginger teas are usually pretty boring to me because I’d prefer to drink straight ginger tea. This one tastes better than most actually. Ginger is the main flavor. I’m not getting much lemon, which is fine. It’s not very spicy, but it’s not bad.

drank Happy by Teapigs
574 tasting notes

This tastes like a typical night time tea. Just tastes like lemon and light herbs. It’s fine, but nothing special. I wish the spices had been more pronounced. I’m glad the advent calendar has so many herbals though!

drank Apple and Cinnamon by Teapigs
574 tasting notes

I’ve always wanted to try teapigs, and their advent calendar was on sale for Black Friday, so I finally had my chance! This was Day 1, and it’s an all right tea – a little more special than other bagged versions of this. Light cinnamon, a bit of apple, and a small amount of sweetness. It doesn’t need anything added to be tasty. I enjoyed it both hot and cold. This tea does what it sets out to accomplish, and it’s good enough!

drank Mao Feng Green Tea by Teapigs
721 tasting notes

Was cleaning out my cubby at work and found this stashed at the back! Def forgot that I brought some teabags with me to work. I also found a small bag od David’s Silk Dragon Jasmine in the bottom of my drawer hahaha

This tea tastes like a traditional straight green tea. Actually pretty good, it isn’t overwhelmingly grassy, but still has a great green tea flavor to it!

Sidenote: I cleaned out my desk, cubby, drawers, and past my keys to my backfill. I’ve been at the Grand for the past 3.5 years and now it’s off to go to the Boardwalk! I start at my new location tomorrow… excited, but nervous. I literally don’t know anyone over there so it’ll be nice to start fresh.

Nothing particularly wrong or off putting about this, but just not my cup of tea, so to speak. Not much flavor. Didn’t particularly do anything for me.

This was a limited edition Teapigs flavor for their tenth birthday and it just happened to be around at the time I was trying out some of their herbals a while back; I’m about halfway through my box of teabags (I really wish they had non-teabag options available because I’ve liked their teas I’ve tried and think loose leaf is a better bang for your buck, but since I’ve been packing for a trip, the teabags are handy for luggage, at least) but noticed I’ve yet to log this one yet. I usually drink it warm, but it’s been uncomfortably hot lately (consistently over 90F lately) so I cold-steeped my teabag in a glass mug of refridgerated water while I was packing my luggage, then came back to it later when the color looked a very dark marigold.

And I have to say, this tea is as pleasant cold as it is warm. Long steeps seem to do this tea favorably both cold and warm, to get a lot of flavor out of this herbal, and it’s one I like to just leave the bag in my cup as a result while I’m sipping. It has a pleasantly sweet, fruity taste, with a strong apple note, but there is a lot of sweetness in the blend, giving me more of a caramel apple appeal. There is also a red berry/strawberry flavor, that paired with the sweetness brings out a bit of a strawberries and cream taste. I like the slightly tangy fruity note with the sweet notes that really do read as a fruit dessert… it doesn’t really read as a specific fruit dessert to me, since I tend to pick up on different fruit flavors on different sips, but in some ways that adds to the appeal and enjoyment for me. I think I’ll miss this one when my box is finished off.

Flavors: Apple, Berries, Candied Apple, Caramel, Cream, Fruity, Strawberry, Sweet, Tangy

drank Snooze by Teapigs

This also came in a Sips By box.
I think there are only three ingredients: apple, chamomile, and lavender.
Steeps an off-puttingly pale color, almost like no color at all.
Smells of lavender and chamomile.
Flavor is very bland and sort of vaguely sweet.
I left the tea sachet in for well over 10 minutes.
Color, scent, and flavor did not improve.
Overall, a very underwhelming and boring cuppa.
Sleepytime Extra is a better product.

Flavors: Apple, Lavender, Sweet

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 8 OZ / 236 ML

Zippy citrus, mostly lime. Naturally flavored but not artificial tasting. Medium strong base. Good! I enjoy it and often have it in the cupboard.

Sipdown! 31/365

This tea was unlabeled in a baggie, but since it was a teabag and said “Teapigs”, and clearly looked like a lemon/ginger herbal, it was easy to find. So thanks MissB for this sample! It was pretty much exactly what one would expect from a tea with this name. Ginger and lemon (in the form of lemongrass). It’s not super strong, but I don’t think I’d want it to be, unless I was sick. Not my favourite, as I really prefer drinking actual tea, but at least it didn’t have mint!

drank Up Beet by Teapigs
9329 tasting notes

Hot cuppa drank on the commute home from work.

This was interesting to me because it managed to be thick, and distinctly beet and hisbiscus tasting with out being too much beet or hibiscus. Not too earthy, not too tart. Just a nice balance between the two. Now, I also didn’t think it was something that really ‘hooked’ me in to wanting more – but I found it pleasant enough, and would drink it again if offered.

drank Matcha Cocoa Latte by Teapigs
735 tasting notes

I might not be the best person to be the first to review this.

The instructions say to whisk the matcha with a small amount of hot milk. I have no idea what a small amount is, but I do my best with a bamboo matcha whisk and milk I heated on the stovetop. Then it tells me to top with frothed milk. I don’t have a frother, so I make do with whisked hot milk. It does not say how much to use, which really frustrates me. I need better instructions than that.

Anyway, the matcha doesn’t smell like chocolate at all. It just smells like the ocean. That seaweedy generic matcha aroma. After the milk, I sort of smell chocolate, but it’s faint. The resulting tea is tan with green speckles on top. By now, the seaweed smells baked and toasty. The flavor sort of reminds me of Japanese snack mix. Sesame, roasted seaweed, and a creamy note that I guess is the faint chocolate blending with milk.

This isn’t the worst thing I’ve ever had, but I would definitely not buy it again.

Flavors: Cream, Nutty, Ocean Breeze, Roasted, Seaweed

Sips By Sipdown!

Been drinking this after dinner this week. I really appreciate lemony herbals these days, especially on chilly nights. I hope my next Sips by box has something caffeine free in it. They’ve been my main supplier of post-work teas lately.
