drank Peach DeTox by Yogi Tea

TTB

I really dislike ‘detox’ blends. It’s just…not a thing and I hate brands that try to sell any kind of detox to consumers.

Despite my annoyance at the name, decided to give it a try, as the combination of peach, cinnamon, and clove sounded interesting.

Alas, this is just cinnamon and clove- maybe a touch of ginger? Meh, it’s a spiced herbal, not something I need to have again.

Shae

Agree with you on the detox teas. We seem to have accumulated quite a few though because James loves those kinds of blends. Not because they are detox but because he likes the way they taste. Still haven’t figured that out.

drank Licorice by Yogi Tea
54 tasting notes

Am I biassed? Absolutely. Liquorice tea is a massive comfort drink for me, and this is a nice take on that. For a liquorice tea, it’s not particularly liquorice forward, but has a nice warm flavour packing it all together. To give a comparison that’s probably very specific to my part of the world, it is like eating speculaas while there is still leftover zwartwit in your mouth, it almost has that salmiak note to it.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Licorice Root, Nutmeg, Spices

drank Peach DeTox by Yogi Tea
735 tasting notes

Not always a fan of Yogi teas, but I quite like this one! It’s a peach ginger blend, but the other ingredients really make it stand out. The cinnamon early in the sip highlights the sweetness of the peach while the dandelion root gives it depth. Sampled this out of the TTB but would happily drink it again in the future!

drank Kava Stress Relief by Yogi Tea
1635 tasting notes

This tastes strongly of licorice root. The flavor lingers after each sip. On top of that, I might taste a little bit of cinnamon or some other spice. It doesn’t really stand out from other bagged teas, but it’s okay. It’s easy to drink and enjoyable warm or cold. I ended up with a few bags of this from a TTB, and I finished them off really quickly.

This showed up in my tea caddy last week – I’m not one for herbal teas and, to me, Yogi = Herbal. But I looked at the ingredients list and saw Assam black tea. Hmm, Ok. Bunch of other herbal stuff that I had to Google later. Two items of note – stevia leaf and monk fruit extract are included. If, like me, sugar substitutes put you off, be forewarned. Green Tea extract was also included, which I think are code words for extra caffeine. On the “lesser ingredients” list were the things that made me want to try it – orange flavor, tangerine flavor, orange peel oil, and tangerine oil. I’m a sucker for a good citrus flavored tea.
First impression is, to borrow another reviewer’s words, warm orange juice. Specifically warm, watered-down orange juice. But not warm Tang. There is enough Assam to color the brew, but not enough to speak black tea to me. I’m not giving up on it. I am thinking that combining it with one of my more robust black teas might be good. Its more of an “add citrus to one of my black teas” than the reverse.
What can I say at this point? Its not bad, I didn’t throw it out, and I might have a way to better enjoy it, so it gets further exploration. Note: the “sweeteners” were present, noted/notable, but not overpowering. 70mg caffeine/cup

I just polished off the very last tea bag from the previous iteration of this tea, “Refreshing Mint Vital Energy.” It’s ok; not terribly offensive but not wowing anybody. An inexpensive black tea with mint.

drank Throat Comfort by Yogi Tea
1283 tasting notes

The overwhelming taste is licorice root-fennel seed. Very sweet. Also taste cherry bark. All the other typical chai spices are mostly in the background but not hidden. Licorice root definitely gives some body. The tea seems to get thicker at the bottom of the cup, when I notice the mouthfeel and coating nature of slippery elm.

This is actually not terrible tasting but I’d rather go for Traditional Medicinals Throat Coat. They’re both functional herbal teas that will provide a little relief in the moment.

Single tea bag from a TTB. This blueberry flavor is surprisingly fresh and realistic. The green tea doesn’t come through very much. If this were herbal, I’d totally buy a box. As it is, I very much enjoyed my single cold mug of this.

This one didn’t taste like much. I mostly just tasted green tea and maybe a hint of fruitiness. Maybe the green tea leaned toward more of a matcha-like flavor, but it wasn’t too special. I’ll always try a Yogi tea from a TTB though!

Single bag from a tea box. It’s a little naturally sweet from the licorice. I also get a light cinnamon and mint. All the herbs combine pleasantly, so it tastes generically herbal, but good.

Tried this because I had neither energy nor focus and needed both. I was pleasantly surprised to notice an actual perk-up effect after one cup.

As a rule, I don’t like Yogi teas because of their huge and obnoxious love affair with licorice. In this blend, however, it was about halfway down the ingredient ladder and while still too noticeable for my druthers, I could actually drink it without wincing. Vanilla and cinnamon were the taste leaders; couldn’t pull out any individual characteristics of the Assam or rooibos that appear in the ingredient list.

Michelle, thanks!

Michelle

I haven’t gotten tired of the flavor or pick-me-up from this tea. My go to for travel and jet lag, an easy brew cup with a pithy note attached to the string :)

Pretty average run-of-the-mill green tea, nothing to write home about but good for sipping at home in the evening hours.

Very nice and not too sweet unless you over-steep it in my opinion! It’s orangey without being overpowering and the black tea still comes through well. One of my favorites.

drank Sweet Chili by Yogi Tea
1319 tasting notes

Evening caffeine-free cup. I have received it from postcrossing apparently. Quote on tag: I am beautiful, I am bountiful. I am blissful.

So, honestly I have no idea what is in and I am not a fan of chili at all. Or any spicy food. So drinking this is quite… uncommon for me.

It smells after cocoa. With licorice. It is true to name. It is sweet chili with cocoa? Certainly, there is the licorice. There is some warmth beneath, not sure if true chili, or some herbs causing it. Unique flavour profile for sure though. Sometimes it smells like gingerbread. Probably caused by the spices in.

Not sure if I like it honestly. So unique, but I can’t imagine drinking it on daily basis. Now and then, maybe. I can imagine it with bold black tea base. The herbals… aren’t great.

Song pairing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pgum6OT_VH8 — found accidentaly and found out I have heard it before for sure. Well, sometimes I want to be on the board of that ship. “Far away from the memories; Of the people who care if I live or die.”

derk

I’ll hold you in my arms, Martin. hugs Have you heard much of Muse’s music before?

Martin Bednář

I am pretty sure I have heard them before, derk. But not that much as I am listening to them that often. Same with Placebo. I am finding new for me (though old), music bands. Hah.

derk

They have some great songs that helped me put feelings to and get through some trying times in my 20s. Same with Placebo. They were both amazing live performances.

Shae

Just spent an hour listening to some of my old favorites from 2005-2006. I’d heard this one before, but I didn’t know the name of the band. From the YouTube comments, it seems like a lot of people really relate to this song.

The blend sounds very interesting. It almost reminds me of Mexican chocolate with the chili and spices. Yogi teas are usually hit or miss for me, especially because they do tend to add licorice to everything (which I do not often like). It does sound like it would be a good one with a bold black tea base as you mention. At least the quote can be a bit of inspiration for you today, I hope. <3

ashmanra

I played it for Ashman, and was shocked he had not heard of Muse or Placebo, especially since I played Running Up That Hill to death back in the day. (Guess I was always wearing earbuds.) He was really into metal and rock in the 80’s and was bass guitarist in a band,:then switched gears completely to Classical guitar. He still has his Gibson Ripper and his Kohno classical.

Martin Bednář

derk: Oh zeah, I am sure they are amazing live! And I think it is pretty much common for people in their 20s (where I am right in the middle) understanding lyrics of of Placebo and Muse. Sometimes the lyrics are saysing exactly how I feel. Like this one.
Shae: It’s exactly that. Listening to old favourites. I do that way too often recently. Probably hoping I could return to that time full of good mood and time I don’t had to care. Oh well. Blend is truly interesting. The licorice was mediocre in this one — sometimes too much present, but sometimes well mixed with the spices. The quote is truly a bit of inspiration indeed.
ashmanra: Oh well, truly surprsing. Running Up That Hill is as well powerful song. I am a bit puzzled when it comes to music. I sometimes listen to rock, but then I switch my mood to something else like Springsteen. At least I have a variety here :)

drank Chai Rooibos by Yogi Tea

A nice herbal chai. However, I prefer some of this company’s other herbal chais. I can definitely taste the rooibos here, so if I’m in the mood for that, it’s a good choice.

Office Tea Bag pick
So I’m not someone who doesn’t like stevia in drinks or tea necessarily but this one is a nope. The turmeric and other spices make this cup have a dusty quality to it and flavorwise it’s just pure stevia with a bit of dusty spices. There actually is a nice honey note in the tea though that I like and it would be a nice tea if they hadn’t added stevia. Added some nondairy milk and it’s definitely better but the stevia still is just so strong Boo…

The past 6 months have been quite infuriating. I am someone who needs sleep, not unlike many others I presume, yet in recent times this blessed sanctuary of cognitive rest has alluded me. I moved sluggishly throughout the day, objects in front of me disguised by the fog of fatigue. Days blended together and nights were dreaded. This lack of sleep forced me to contemplate all my past mistakes, embarrassments, and traumas during the same hours drunkards dragged their feet to their wives and vampires hunted for their prey. I was sick of it. I tried every remedy there was. From rigorous nighttime exercise to jacking off before bed. All in vain. I came across this tea and had no hopes. It’s easier that way, the lower your hopes the lighter the fall. I sat in the same couch, in the same room, with the same book in my lap. Slowly I sipped. Suddenly, a warmth spread about me. Not the typical sense of the word, a different kind of warmth. A warmth not of the body but of the soul. I lay in bed that night. My eyelids slowly being pulled down as if the angel of the Death herself had her fingers on them, gently encouraging my sleep. I lay in bed for what felt like eternity eager to open my eyes and see the light of a new day. Instead what I awoke to was my bedside clock. It was 10:02 pm. I had my eyes closed for a minute. This tea is bullshit I still couldn’t sleep. I ended up just buying melatonin. 5mg does the trick. 4/10

TANGERINE TEA!?!? Do you mean orange juice? that was my initial reaction to seeing this on the shelf. I must admit I was hesitant to spend my precious 69 cents on this tea, yet curiosity prevailed. Luckily I’m no cat, I’m a grown man regardless of whatever my father says. He doesn’t approve of my new found addiction to rating teas. In fact, there are few things I do that he does approve of. Maybe if you count me silently sitting in the living room. He still thinks I’m a kid. Typical. Im 6’2" 176 lbs and have facial hair but he still sees me as the kid that peed on mickey mouse at Disney World on my eighth birthday. I WASN’T SCARED OF THE MOUSE DAD. I JUST DRANK A LOT OF WATER. he’s always bugging me to get my life together, maybe I don’t want to go to pharmacy school. Maybe I hate studying biochemical engineer. Maybe school isn’t for me dad! Ever consider that!? Ali dropped out of high school and Reza didn’t go to college and they’re doing fine. You’re forcing me to live out your dream dad. Maybe I have different dreams. Maybe I dream of color, love, and life. I dream to be known, to be cherished, and loved. SOMETHING YOU NEVER HAD AND YOU’RE TAKING IT OUT ON ME! anyways the tea did in fact taste like watered-down hot orange juice. not bad. 7/10

Put yourself in my shoes. You’re at target, gallivanting around in their home-like atmosphere. It is true what they say. When you’re at Target, you’re family. Now you stumble upon the tea and lo and behold look what catches your eye. A tea simply called " Women’s Energy". As a child, I had always been curious as to what it felt like to be a woman. Easy access to boobs. Supposedly more pleasurable orgasms. Being able to shop at urban outfitters without feeling judged. So you must not blame me for grabbing a box and being so excited I sprinting past the cashier and right out the door. I Drank the tea so fast I must’ve burned the entire track of my esophagus. I drank the entire box in a day. Hoping for the next to be the best day of my life. Boy have I never been more wrong in my life. Perverts started hitting on me at the gym. I was catcalled taking out the trash. Blood. everywhere. Needless to say, I will never be indulging in that tea again. And my pity goes out to all who do. 6/10

Imagine watching “Uncut Gems” written and directed by the Safdie brothers featuring Adam Sandler’s incredible performance as an incessant sports gambler. Now think about how you feel after watching Adam Sandler unremittingly withstand the most devastating blows of his life, scene after scene. For me it was incredible anxiety, the most I’ve felt during any movie I’ve ever watched in my life. Now imagine the opposite of that feeling. That is the feeling you get when you drink this honey lavender tea. Very relaxing, the only thing more relaxing would be going into a sensory deprivation but substituting the salt water for honey lavender. Not only is “Uncut Gems” an 8/10 but so is this delightful treat by yogi tea.

It’s a winter night, frost is nipping at the window. Your toes are curled against the warmth of the hearth. Smores? hell yeah. You watch your mom place the milk next to the chimney in preparation for Santa’s visit. She kisses your forehead as she walks by. This is what yogi peppermint tea tastes like. Love. Innocence. Child-like excitement. My life will never be the same after this tea. Everything is now dull and boring. This tea is my only light. May God bring vengeance to the man who dares take it away from me.
