This tea is heavy on the licorice and fennel flavors. Very smooth, with almost a numbing-like effect on the tongue (at least for me). If you enjoy licorice and are looking for a tea to soothe an upset stomach, this tea is perfect. It has become my go-to when I need to settle my stomach; this is one of the few teas I have found that actually works.
Flavors: Fennel, Licorice
I am pretty sure I have wrote a tasting note of this tea I got from derk. But whatever…
“This life is a gift” a quote from tag.
But this tea, athough it is a gift, is… meh. I have to agree with derk; it’s pretty same as other yogi teas. But I think I noticed honey. And cinnamon with cloves. Pretty smooth taste, but boring. Pretty sweet as well.
Not great, not terrible. Maybe I have expected more.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Honey
Steeped with just boiling water for 9+ minutes. (Tried at 6 minutes before but not enough taste, bag recommends 7 minutes.) Served in enamel tin mug.
Notes of ginger and lemongrass on the nose. I’m not getting much lemon to be honest, perhaps this is just my palate. In retrospect with this comment, it may be better off with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice as one might add to a good black tea.
Unfortunately the thing that sticks to me with this tea is a syrupy sweet mouthfeel that lingers on the tongue. I have a poor sense of smell but this coating shines through that fact to re-coat my cheeks with each sip. Perhaps the ginger? But it doesn’t have any of the pleasant qualities that a good ginger chew might, which leads me down the path of feeling that this is a wellness tea instead of a pleasant herbal infusion.
That ginger though, I do enjoy. Far from the initial bite of a prominent herbal tea like tumeric, the ginger when steeped at 5 minutes creeps in.
Albeit at the finish of each sip, and after the drinker acknowledges the described coating, then in a flash it fades back.
These redeeming qualities of ginger within the tea raise the rating and add to the aroma/flavor but I can’t help leaving this on the shelf if there are other options as the tongue feel just gets ruined by the odd notes that pass over the tongue, and in not getting much lemon at all.
A quick aside from the commercial description; Yogi mentions “tart lemon” and “refreshing peppermint” right in their description alongside Ginger. Where are those flavors? It’s more like someone dropped a hard candy in hot water and threw some ginger on top. At least it’s relatively inexpensive.
My secret? Add a half shot of Brandy for a faux hot toddy.
Flavors: Ginger, Lemongrass, Maple Syrup
Steeped for 6 minutes, in 10oz of purified water, at a temperature just less than boiling (office hot water dispenser.)
Dry smell is sweet, citrusy, and pleasant. Exactly what you might expect by the description.
Bright, lovely-light, offering a bold but delicate feeling on the palate. A great deal of citrus fruit mixes with syrupy sweetness on the finish to bring the tangerine front and center.
Looking at the blend on the box, I feel this tea offers a great melding of Assam with herbaceous flavors while offering a great pick me up especially when compared to a weaker drip brew coffee or K-cup level of caffeine. That green tea extract packs a punch without negatively affecting the flavor whatsoever.
Since I used a tea for one set for this infusion, I will be experimenting with double infusion when two bags are used at a lower steep time.
I am also limited by the fact that my water source is just less than boiling.
Overall, I feel that this tea offers a tremendous value when it comes to a coffee replacement. It is a run of the mill mass-produced tea but with that comes the convenience of availability and low price. Would keep in my rotation to buy again! Especially compared to some other Yogi teas.
Flavors: Fruity, Smooth, Sweet
