My husband really loves these Yogi teas, but so far I haven’t been much of a fan. We have several different varieties and since I made a silent promise to myself to try each of our teas at least once, I am finally breaking down and making myself a cup of this one. To make it sound a little more pleasant, I’m going to refer to this one as a detox tea, which I guess is essentially what it is. No worries – I don’t plan on going into detail here about its “detoxing” qualities, but I do want to comment on the flavor should anyone else want to try it at some point.
The color of the steeped tea is deep red with a green ring around the edge much like some of the Echinacea teas I’ve tried recently. I’m not sure what causes this, but it seems to happen often with the natural blends we have. This has many ingredients, possibly the tea in our cupboard with the most, but it smells mostly of mint. I hope that the licorice (which I know is in this mix because it’s in every Yogi tea) isn’t as offensive as usual. It’s just too much for me most times.
Thankfully, the taste is mostly mint as well. There’s a bit of spiciness on the end of the sip that could come from any of the several spices in this blend. There is also a slight bitter quality that mixes with the spice, as well as something herbaceous. Honestly, this is the best tasting Yogi tea I’ve come across. If it didn’t have the senna leaf, I could see myself drinking this often at night for a nice, minty bedtime tea.
