Old Tea Bag Sip Down
I couldn’t take it any longer. During halftime, I went through my parent’s tea cupboard. Some were dumped. Some I tried and they failed. And then there were the tea bags. I am doubtful but heck let’s journey. No idea of how long this has been in their cupboard. Despite that, the flavor is pretty good. Let’s see if it goes with Tikka Masala. Actually, yes. It does. Though mint tea complements it better. This ground apple is decent in old age.
Predominantly mint, first and foremost. Under the mint umbrella, I can taste something planty (catnip???), licorice root and stevia but I’m not getting any of the other flavours that are advertised.
I still like it and will have no problem drinking up the box but it would’ve been nice if the licorice especially, was more mild so the lavender would have a chance to shine through.
Flavors: Licorice Root, Mint, Plants, Stevia
Random teabag pulled from my aunt’s stash.
Groggy first cup of the day earlier this week so I don’t remember much. It was good. Not great, but solid. Lemon myrtle is my favorite ‘lemony herb’ compared to lemon balm and lemongrass. It doesn’t have whatever lemongrass does that can sometimes downright turn me off. This tastes of a high, green, lemony note and is ginger spicy and echinacea-y (if you know, you know). Full body from the echinacea and sweet licorice root but ultimately gulpable.
Flavors: Citrusy, Ginger, Green, Lemongrass, Licorice Root, Roots, Spicy, Sweet
For the “A tea available almost anywhere” prompt for this month!
The sick tea to end all sick teas. I drank this with my partner after their latest DJ gig (think vinyl records, not oontz oontz haha). My throat is not used to shouting in bars anymore, and when we return home, lead in our limbs and bags under our eyes, this tea helped us get some relief from shouting at our friends. Naturally, I wouldn’t drink this tea for fun… it’s not really supposed to taste good, it’s just supposed to fill a function. At least to me!
Flavors: Lemon, Licorice
I’ve had this in the past and remember it being better. I’ve had other brands that had more of a calming effect. I would like less licorice root and more lavender. There is a taste I can’t identify and I wonder if it’s the catnip. I’m not sure I’ve had catnip before. There is a slight floral scent and a taste of mint.
Flavors: Floral, Licorice, Mint
I have a cold so I wanted something soothing and decided to try this one instead of the brand’s plain ginger one (for a change.)
This one is good but I think I prefer the stronger ginger flavour in the other. It did soothe my throat though so no complaints with this tea overall.
Flavors: Ginger, Tulsi
Spicy, rooty-earthy, brothy and bright — exactly what was needed while recovering from illness and returning to work. The box was pretty much empty within 4 days of opening.
I added several grinds of black pepper to the first cups and thought that’s what made this tea so spicy, but nope, it’s definitely just as spicy and tingly on its own, almost like Sichuan peppercorn. It kind of flattened in the back of the mouth – herbal, must be the meadowsweet. I understand the purpose of using meadowsweet since it contains salicylic acid but I prefer my turmeric blends to be all spice, all the time.
Flavors: Bright, Broth, Earthy, Flat, Ginger, Herbal, Roots, Spicy, Turmeric
