drank Rhubarb Blend by Oteas

This is from a Sips by box. The flavor is mostly a pleasantly tart rhubarb. I also taste a bit of beet and some other sweet fruitiness. The resteep tastes like straight beets, so I would skip that. Cold, this is a pretty refreshing tea, and I would be happy to drink it again, but I’m not sure I’d go to the effort of ordering it.

drank Eyebright Herb Tea by Buddha Teas

This sort of tastes like barley tea. It’s somewhat savory and subtle. With sweetener, it was decent, though I’d probably just choose barley or buckwheat in the future. I’ve never heard of eyebright before, so it was an interesting sample from the TTB.

drank Coffee by TeaMaze

Thanks to gmathis again for the sweet little package! Wow, this flavor gave me such a blast of nostalgia. When we were kids, on long car trips, we’d sometimes stop at gas stations and mix together all the various cappuccino and hot chocolate flavors they had to create delicious concoctions. This tea is that flavor! I haven’t really had any coffee in the intervening decades, but I remember that flavor well. I taste coffee and cream and maybe some chocolate? This is great. I’d totally drink this again.

Yay! I’m glad you liked that one! Yes, I think there are some cocoa nibs in the blend. I could bury my nose in the cup and leave it there all day.

My sister loves coffee teas, so I may have to pick up a package of this for her birthday!

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.

This is my first experience with yaupon, and it’s interesting! Pretty savory and beany or grassy, but not bad. There’s almost a hint of spice in there too. It’s not something I’d order, but it was fun to try a bag from a tea box!

Youngest daughter bought American Buzz from Harney, which I think is yaupon but I don’t know if it is a blend of other things as well. I need to ask her how she likes it.

Their breakfast blend is delightful. It has spearmint and it’s amazing.

drank Corn Silk Tea by Buddha Teas

Huh, this tastes like absolutely nothing. I guess I’ll drink it when I’m working out today since it’s basically water. It’s possible I should have gone with a longer steep, but I’m not at all familiar with corn silk, so I played it safe. I only grabbed one bag from the TTB, so I won’t have the opportunity to try it again yet.

I’ve been struggling with this tea because I really want to like it, but it’s not behaving. I don’t love it with milk, but I also don’t love it without. The last time I had it, I decided to sweeten it with horchata powder, which was tasty and made it taste pretty authentic. I’ve also enjoyed it with almond milk. I just find myself wanting more from this tea. It tastes like rooibos and a little like cinnamon, but I wish it were more decadent.

drank Moroccan Mint by Numi Organic Tea

Single bag from a tea box. This is such a clear, fresh peppermint. That’s the only ingredient in this bag, and it’s really refreshing and nice cold. I would totally drink this one again.

I like this black tea. It’s pretty deep and malty. The pumpkin flavoring is lighter than I’d prefer. I wouldn’t really be able to tell that it’s supposed to be pumpkin flavor if I didn’t know already. It’s interesting to have pumpkin in a non pumpkin spice context. I guess this tea is pretty squashy now that I’m thinking about it. My second cup of this I enjoyed even more than my first. The flavors are subtle, but super enjoyable and high quality. I wish I had more of this one. I turned out to really like it.

gmathis

Squashy. There’s an adjective to make you smile!

Grabbed this bag from a tea box. This is a little savory. There’s a bit of a dirt flavor, but not in a terrible way. I know this herb is mostly used for health reasons, so I was expecting it to be a lot grosser. It’s pretty generically herbal.

…so I was expecting it to be a lot grosser.

Hahahahaha! Thank you. I enjoyed that. :)

AJRimmer

Ha yeah I’ve just noticed a trend among health teas – not all, but many :P

Kittenna

That made me laugh too! I had a similar thought about a tea recently.

I’m an event planner who always has multiple mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my troublesome kitties.

Favorite flavors: dessert flavors, nutty, melon, mint, strawberry, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
