A good, affordable substitute for the Recover tea from Teavana, which I still miss at this time of year. The ginger and lime together remind me of Coca-Cola, although I got a note of coconut as well. It’s… almost Christmas-y. I quite like the smoother flavor of white hibby.

I love the jitters-free caffeine boost from mate, but I have to really be in the mood for mate in order to make myself a cup. And I’m only in the mood for it like, once a year.
I like this one better than the Guayaki kind. It has a milder flavor.
But yeah, it still tastes like grass.

I absolutely love this tisane.
It scratches the itch for a second coffee around midmorning. No caffeine in this, and it’s far healthier, especially because I don’t add anything to it. It’s got a pleasantly burnt taste to it, like toast. Very satisfying.

Such a lovely tea. There are so many health benefits, and not just for women. I read an article that says it’s loaded with all kinds of minerals and nutrients that benefit men, too.
It has such a nice mild flavor. It definitely tastes “green,” but it also has an ever-so-gentle kiss of a raspberry note. You can’t oversteep it, either, which makes it a perfect work tea.

Flavors: Earth, Fruity, Green, Raspberry, Sweet

Drinking for health benefits, not so much flavor.
There are several Organic India tulsi blends that I legitimately enjoy.
This one honestly sucks.
Artificial vanilla candy flavoring completely mars the generally pleasant earthy flavor of the tulsi, regrettably.

Flavors: Artificial, Candy, Tulsi, Vanilla

I LOVE their tulsi blends. Vanilla with tulsi? This one sounds weird but I’d try it anyway. haha

It’s all right. The vanilla flavoring just tastes very artificial to me.

drank Calm Chamomile by Tazo
631 tasting notes

I really like this one.
It reminds me of Sleepytime tea.
The sarsaparilla and spearmint take some of the dullness out of plain chamomile, and I get notes of vanilla bean, too.
I know it’s got a bedtime tea reputation, but I drink chamomile throughout the day sometimes, just because I like it.

Flavors: Floral, Sarsaparilla, Spearmint, Vanilla

drank 2018 Waffles by White2Tea
631 tasting notes

Broke off 1/4 of a cake into a 12 oz hot water.
Dry leaf smells very earthy and mushroom-y, with notes of cocoa.
Steeps a ruddy brown, very thick liquor.
Flavor was surprisingly light— perhaps I needed to use a 1/2 cake instead.
Tasted mostly like earth/ roots to me.
Just a typical pu’erh, nothing special or memorable to me.

Flavors: Cocoa, Earth, Mushrooms, Wet Earth

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

drank Minty Igloo by Nourish Tea

Drinking this to chase away the Tuesday blues. I don’t normally like plain mint teas, but this one is pretty awesome.
Dry leaf is just chopped up mint leaves.
Smells minty.
Steeps a green-brown color, notes of vanilla and mint.
Tastes of mint, sweet vanilla and honey notes.

Flavors: Honey, Mint, Sweet, Vanilla

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

drank Snooze by Teapigs
631 tasting notes

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

Hello! I love literature, politics, handmade jewelry, all things purple, and sarcasm. I work in the Information Technology field at present.

I’m not a swapper, but I hope we can still be friends :)

Favorites: Black, oolong, rooibos, genmaicha. Vanilla, chocolate, fruity, nutty, bready, roasted, dessert-inspired flavors. Floral greens. Kombucha.

I’m very picky about chai and spice/ spicy blends. I’m also also iffy about mate and herbal teas, although there are a few that I enjoy (roasted dandelion root, chamomile).

Dislikes: White tea, unflavored green teas, honeybush, fruity herbals, hibiscus in high quantities, plain peppermint.

90-100: Perfection and heaven and magic, all in one cup.

70-89: Good.

50-69: Meh.
