I just wanted to try something quick, dirty, and new. Well, I have no idea how long this stuff has been in my cupboard, but I don’t think I’ve ever actually had any.
So, I put the water through the keurig (the box claims you make it with boiling water, so IDEK) and brew bag for 3 minutes.
Taste is… OOUCH that hibi! I noticed on the box that this had hibiscus in it, but one sip and I would have known anyway. That’s TART! Between the hibi and the berry, it’s up there on the tart factor. Time to add sweetener.
Ok, so somehow, sweetener makes it almost worse? How to explain. The Splenda cuts the tart, for sure. But once the overpowering tart is gone, there are… other flavors that emerge. Like something bitter. I’m not sure what it is, but there is a noticible bitterness to it once splenda is added. Ew. And the overall flavor isn’t very good. It’s, how should I say this, MUDDY. It’s almost like someone was blending flavors and scents together to get potpouri, but somehow ended up with compost? I’m not sure how to describe it. For some reason the word “Dishwater” is coming to mind, but I don’t know why. That’s just what my mind thinks when I sip on it. “MMMmmmm, Dishwater.”
However, all that said, I have had worse teas. By far this isn’t the worst think I’ve ever tasted. But it is not remotely good. It’s pretty bad actually. I don’t know how much of it is that the tea is outdated, and how much of it is “This tea is just awful” but I know I am absolutely throwing this back into the back of my cupboard, never to be drunk again.
Bad stuff guys. Just BAD.
Flavors: Bitter, Blueberry, Hibiscus
Woke up with a headache this morning that’s making me feel sick to my stomach so I’m glad I threw this one in my bag last night for work. Must have known subconsciously that I’d need it. No sweetener in this cup since it’s already full of licorice root, which I can definitely taste. The ginger stands out too, as it should. Really only one I would ever drink if I were sick. I don’t enjoy the flavor but it serves its purpose.
Flavors: Ginger, Licorice
Moving through all the samples I picked up from my aunt’s during Thanksgiving. I generally take one of each of her bagged teas I haven’t yet tried. Bagged teas are good lull teas; lately I’ve been feeling too lazy to assume the student role with quality loose leaf. Looking forward to the moment I come to my senses and plunge into the puerh crocks. With time.
Big news (rolls eyes): this is pretty much indistinguishable from any other Yogi brand chai-type bag. It’s pretty fresh and warming, though. Turmeric forward for sure but I can surprisingly taste everything else like ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, black pepper and clove. The initial sips have that weird licorice sweetness, definitely not overplayed. It assimilates seamlessly a few more sips in and contributes a decent body.
But again, with Yogi teas, I usually find at least one part of the name to be missing. This time it’s honey. It ghosted. Come on.
Overall fine, nothing special but can’t recommend it because well, in my opinion, once you’ve had one Yogi, you’ve had them all.
This and a bagged Oolong are my go to teas while traveling. If you compare this slightly vanilla and other spices to a loose leaf tea, it’s going to disappoint, but I think it’s one of the more drinkable bagged teas and not as in your face clove and cardamom as some bagged chai. I always seem to have this in my travel bag, so I thought it should be in me cupboard, not that my cupboard actually reflects reality, but I’m trying to get it closer. Vanilla spice will give me an alertness boost, and has a soothing flavor profile, I’ll probably keep reaching for it as a convenient pick me up when I am away from my infuser.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Vanilla
No notes yet. Add one?

I have a cold.
Another Yogi tea with a ton of ingredients… with only 1.8g of material in the bag. Been dunking 2 bags in 10oz boiling.
Smells and tastes like a scented candle. Meh.
Elderberry and generic blue/purple berry taste with woody, warm cinnamon. Earthy and herbaceous undertones. Slightly cooling. Lingering tart blackberry-blueberry flavoring in the mouth. Not medicinal tasting like boiling elderberries can be. Which I’d rather be doing. I’m just trying to get rid of the box, then I’ll dip into the real deal.
For what it’s worth, the housemate enjoys this a lot.
I believe it’s a discontinued item. She found it at Grocery Outlet.
This is very light herbal elixir so consider adding a few minutes to the steep time for full enjoyment. It is reminiscent of the scents of a beachside Hallmark store, Raspberry being the dominant flavor with a hint of apples and a flowery finish. As for the holistic properties of this tea umm…..I ate, drank the tea, and digested my food. Thus, success was achieved.
Flavors: Apple, Flowers, Raspberry
This tea bag I got as thank you for postcard from postcrossing member. From Belarus.
“If you are helping somebody, you are awakening somebody.” – a quote on tag.
I had no idea what to expect, so I just put it into cup, filled with boiling water and enjoyed tea with soft baked cookies with blueberries and cranberries. And white chocolate. Cookies were very enjoable (well, they were bought in Lidl), not sweet as some others.
The tea was letdown though. I steeped it for quite long time, but it was far from great tea. I mean, no funky notes, but still bit – too mild? Yep, this blend of chai was very mild and sweet (Stevia leaf in). I blame the stevia for overpowering the stingy notes of ginger and cloves. It was too mild (although some chais are too spicy for me). Sad.
Maybe rooibos is as well to blame (as stevia) as it is not really good as base for chai. I expect some maltiness, but nothing of it was there, of course.
Flavors: Rooibos, Sweet
I’m not a fan of most chocolate tea’s. It just doesn’t work. So why did I try this one? A friend I work with sent this to her mom and her mom loved it so much she ordered more with a crazy price tag since it’s not available in the states (I don’t think). Of course my curiosity was peaked. The first couple times i made it as a latte. It needs milk. Without milk it has that nasty sweetened taste with a water hardly spicy chocolate taste. It’s almost like Swiss Miss hot chocolate which I kind of hate because it tastes off. I gave it a fair trial…it’s not for me. Also it is pretty weak, one tea bag doesn’t seem to offer enough flavor, even in just a little water.
Die Größe Deines Selbst reicht bis ins Unendliche.
The size of your self extends to infinity. To be honest, I used Google Translate. And it is a quote on the tag.
I just feel somehow down. Yesterday we had big family meeting. Whole our family and father’s side of family. About 25 adults + 5 kids. I recently started to hate those family gatherings. It just sucks my energy away. But on the postive side, it is nice to see people together. But tiring, yep.
So brewed this one. After whole day of cleaning the premises. And it is not done yet. But hey, the majority is done.
Tea itself? Still same.
Flavors: Cranberry, Spicy, Tart
I do not need an Energy. But being positive. My mother had a car accident. She is okay, car is KO. She probably felt asleep behind the wheel.
I liked to drive it. It was really great car. Fast, great AC, working hard.
But it was just a car. Mommy is okay and that matters.
Tea is as before. Sweet from fruits, but bit spicy.
Long days with Swiss friend, few teas drunk, but without any notes. But that tea in tea room in Kutná Hora was great, but bit overleafed for my tooth. It was green tea from Burma.
Anyway, now I unfortunately have to drink something alone, as… okay she is still in Prague in this time. She gave me three different loose leaf teas (I will write about them later) and one box. This one is from that box and well it sounds nice, you know?
The ingredients list is long as a lecture week. But I took it out and I found out it smells nice! Quite fruity with spiciness of cardamom and ginger. As well it smells quite like an oranges.
Let´s find out how it is hot. I did recommended 5 minutes steep. Apparently, there are big pieces of Maté and other herbs I am not able to recognize, maybe I see even a lemongrass. The colour is lowly turning to the red-brown.
There is a quote on the tag: “Liebe wird immer siegen – Love will win, always”. I think it is quite nice quote.
Yeah, the aroma is strongly cranberry and I tink a bit of raspberry, but it is not inside. Maybe a combo between cranberry and hibiscus is making similar aroma? The colour is orange, bit cloudy.
As this is called tasting note, so some tastes: yeah, cranberries are dominating. Hibiscus making it tart. Actually it tastes quite watery; I expected much more “body”. Evenmore when there should be black tea in. I did not notice it at all in taste. It is bit earthy as well, I think because lots of herbs.
Overall it is quite nice, I like it is not sweet at all, rather bit tart. Let´s see if it give me a positive energy :D
To finish my day, I decided to drink “Choco” from Yogi Tea with my big teacup. This herbal tea smell creamy hot chocolate. But at taste, it’s a little bit different: licorice at first, spicy and the little bit presence of cocoa. It’s not bad but I will try with my glass teapot next time. Anyway, it’s comforting!
Best bagged tea for coating the throat, hands-down.
Tastes mostly of licorice, cherry, and cinnamon (read: very cough-syrup-y), but it’s tolerable if you add honey.
Temporarily alleviates that awful tickly throat feeling at the beginnings and endings of head colds. I swear it also helped with my cough.
Benefits only apply during consumption of the cuppa. Once the tea is gone, it seems to have no residual benefits.
Flavors: Cherry, Cinnamon, Herbs, Licorice, Medicinal, Sweet
Kitchen clean-out, unknown age. Why does my housemate have one tea-bag left of a few dozen teas?
Dry bag smells mostly of cinnamon and cardamom with some clove and ginger underneath. The aroma smells really good, like a spicy chai with a sweet note of syrup. First sip is has some bite and is very thin with spicy ginger, cinnamon, cardamom and clove. Finishes only a hint sweet from licorice root and very clean. No lingering spice in throat, warming in the chest.
Peach DeTox. Peach. Where’s the peach? Does anybody know where the peach is?? Peach flavor is listed as the third ingredient in a list of 17, yes 17 ingredients. This might be a record. But where’s the peach?! I think the cinnamon, cardamom and ginger oils listed near the bottom are used to cover up a bunch of stale herbs and spices or something.
If this tea were simply advertised as a spicy herbal chai, I’d be inclined to rate it higher.
Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, Pancake Syrup, Spicy
It’sbeen a few years since I’ve had this one. I used to add milk and powdered cinnamon, and it was one of my favorite things. Since I’ve already had a few teas with milk today, I decided to have this one plain. It doesn’t need sugar since it’s already sweet. You can definitely taste the chamomile, and the second flavor is similar to licorice, but I’m not sure which ingredient it is. This tea has a lot of ingredients! It’s sad to see all these negative reviews, as I quite like this one. Without adding anything, nah it doesn’t taste like caramel, but it’s still a pleasant time, and that’s what’s important.
I’m feeling a little under the weather tonight so I thought I’d see what Yogi could do for me.
I like the herbal, dry medicinal scent of the bag in the package. First sip of this is gross. Thick and syrupy. Oh, licorice root is the first ingredient. Well that clears up quickly because of the other ingredients. On subsequent sips, they present a drying, herbal quality which cuts the sweetness. The licorice does hang around, though, around my salivary glands, back of the tongue and because of the sinus opening qualities of the eucalyptus and thyme, it also wafts up into my sniffer. Blergh. I’d be more content if it stayed in just the mouth.
This tea seems fine for 1) light stuffiness or 2) stuffiness that is so severe you won’t be able to taste or breathe into your sinuses that licorice root. Honestly, I’d rather drink two leaves and a bud Peppermint for its clean and pure menthol sinus-opening ability but the eucalyptus, thyme and tulsi are good additions to this ‘breathing blend.’ I’d like to see those 4 ingredients together.
