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.
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.
This tea is so very heavy. The flavors are overpowering and even adding milk doesn’t make this very enjoyable. The peach flavor is weak at best and the odd licorice type flavor is off putting. I got this to replace a giner tea that I used to use to detox but it’s not very good. I find myself adding so much sugar whenever I drink it it’s not an enjoyable experience at well.
Flavors: Licorice, Peach, Spices
I finally reorganized my tea cabinet, and I found a bunch of these! I love this tea so much. I love most spice type teas. I can never tasted the peach flavor, is it even there? I don’t actually believe that a tea could detox the body, bit I always feel warm after drinking this tea. It’s cold out so I figured I could use a cup of Peach Detox. I’m happy with my choice tonight!
Varieteas Box (October) – 7/30
So, I went up to bed before my partner yesterday and forgot to prepare him a cup of tea to bring up when he was ready. I’m really trying to encourage him to drink more tea instead of beer in the evening and I’m forever buzzing around the kitchen telling him he can pick whichever tea he wants!
Well, last night he did! The look of horror on my face when I realised he’d chosen something from my Varieteas box must have been a picture! Cue lots of grumbling about how I only have one each of those samples and want to drink them myself and review them on Steepster. “But you said I could pick any!!” – “Yes… but not THOSE!” Oh dear! Needless to say, I made the poor boy share his mug of Choco with me.
And thank goodness I did! While my partner wasn’t all that impressed with it, I really enjoyed it. I wasn’t sure I was going to, because as soon as I lifted the mug to my lips, I was hit by a seriously weird savoury aroma. It was almost like Bovril! Though I love Bovril, especially in winter, so it didn’t put me off… just intrigued me. Taste wise, there was nothing savoury like about this tea. It was pure, rich chocolate. In fact, if my partner had not left the teabag in the mug when he brought it up, I would have been certain he’d made a mug of hot chocolate. There was a nice warmth from the spices and a creaminess from the vanilla. This was yummy!
I’m glad I made him share it with me. I’d definitely drink this again! And I think that was probably the last time my dear other half will ever help himself to a cup of tea from my cupboard, haha!
Flavors: Chocolate, Spicy, Vanilla
I could taste and smell mostly carob, sarsaparilla, and cinnamon and faint cardamom and hazelnut flavor but it was really thin and just weird. After the first sip, I wasn’t sure I’d continue but I finished the mug over the course of an hour. Way too sweet from the stevia. Blergh. Relaxing from the kava extract? Unsure. Verdict: gross.
