629 Tasting Notes
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 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
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
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.
Steeps a green-brown color, notes of vanilla and mint.
Tastes of mint, sweet vanilla and honey notes.
Flavors: Honey, Mint, Sweet, Vanilla
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
An oldie but a goodie, especially because I’m recovering from a very persistent cold.
Dry leaf is pleasingly chunky and resembles craisins.
Steeps a nice red color.
Notes of currant in the liquor’s scent.
Pleasantly sour on the sip, smooth, tart, fruity.
Flavors: Black Currant, Cranberry, Fruity, Pleasantly Sour, Rooibos, Tart
