Another tea bag, again from Izzy. Thank you!
The beauty of the soul is constant, continous and enless. says quote on tag.
I probably never had kombucha before. Mostly because it’s hard to find here in stores and while I finally found one, it was 2 litre bottle; which is something I didn’t wanted to throw away that much. And then, I found smaller cans, each 330 ml, but pricey.
The tea bag had lemony smell. It was pretty nice and far from dish soap. That was a nice surpise.
Even in taste, it’s lightly lemony and mostly passion fruit. I don’t get any sourness or flavours expected for kombucha, yeasty and such. If I didn’t knew it is actually kombucha, I would call it a green tea with passion fruit/lemon flavour. It is smooth and enjoyable and I am pretty happy with it. I think I noticed even a bit of sparkling :)
Flavors: Lemon, Passion Fruit
Why, oh why did they have to add stevia to this blend? It completely ruined what might have otherwise been a palatable tea. I was super excited when I took a whiff of the teabag. It had a tantalizing aroma of oranges, spearmint, and chai spices. But thanks to the stevia, what I tasted in my mouth was reminiscent of peppermint toothpaste or tiger balm. And it wasn’t just a fleeting note either. No, the weird minty taste lingered forever in the back of my throat as if I had swallowed toothpaste. The aftertaste haunted me long after I finished the tea.
I’m just going to give away what I have left of this tea because it’s that bad. I ordered Valerian Dream, an herbal blend from Rishi with similar ingredients but no sweetners and appears to be much higher quality.
Flavors: Artificial, Medicinal, Menthol, Peppermint
Okay, at first I must say I am drinking a European version. Boxes look bit different, but I think ingredients won´t be. Today I had again of the weird days I am used to have recently. Nieces and nephew over. For whole week. For some reason I can´t understand, I fell anxious when they are around. Anxiety remained even when I went to University. Weird, whole day.
Anyway, came home and I needed a cup. It was evening, so of course something caffeine-free again. As they are around I can not enjoy anything in gaiwan, because I would not find good mood for that. And doing it when anxious makes me anxious even more.
The brew looks golden with quite lots of dust. Probably leaves were very crushed. In aroma I notice lavander, chamomile and bit of licorce. Quite pleasant.
When it comes to taste – it is quite minty, with some kind of aftertaste which remains. It is strange taste, like all herbs together – with spoon of honey. Cough drops maybe? Certainly it is off.
Well, I guess I will finish this cup and go to bed. I would not rate – I think today is not a day for rating. It would be strongly affected by my anxiety. I hope tomorrow is going to be a better day.
This is one of my favorite after-dinner teas. The flavor is not overwhelmingly cinnamon or hibiscus – two flavors I am not a fan of individually, but in this blend I almost wouldn’t be able to tell. I frequently get an upset stomach, and I swear by this tea – it helps ease the discomfort every time. I enjoy at least one cup every day after dinner.
In my opinion, I don’t mind letting the tea bag steep the entire time while I’m enjoying the cup. The flavor deepens without getting bitter.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Hibiscus
So I have a cold (seriously, summer colds are my shtick, it seems), and this tea is suddenly amazing. I got it on a two-for-one sale and was severely disappointed with the other tea (Yogi’s Muscle Recovery, which tasted like shampoo and was immediately composted, all 20 bags at once). I was happy with this one, but it didn’t do much for me…. until now. Now, this is better than NyQuil! The fennel and ginger are doing wonders for my sore throat and faucet nose. The taste is bright and cheerful (and rather mango-ey), and it feels like clarity with every sip. Tea is my medicine now, I guess~
Flavors: Fennel Seed, Ginger, Mango
Bizarre and kinda mediocre.
I assumed the medicinal value of the kombucha would be destroyed by the drying process, but I still really wanted to know what it would taste like. Alas, this tea is not the way to find out—the green tea/spearmint/passion fruit flavors take over.
I may try it as an ice tea or cold brewed.
Flavors: Passion Fruit, Plums, Spearmint
Finally! A Yogi tea that lives up to it’s name for once. Often the tea doesn’t end up tasting like the name and or has some unusual ingredients and tastes strange.
This tea is my favorite Yogi tea that I’ve tried to date. It’s newer and the licorice root is undetectable and perfectly balanced. It gives a subtle sweetness to the heat from the ginger. Although not enough to recognize it as licorice root. I do wish this had more mango flavor but it can be still interpreted in this blend. Whereas the other Yogi teas I’ve tried for example the Peach one couldn’t be interpreted as peach or any sort of fruit. This takes sweetener well but doesn’t need it and also takes milk well. Though I would only add a tiny bit of milk(ex. 1 tablespoon max) as not to overpower this tea. That all depends on your personal preference though and how much of the ginger you want to taste. The ginger in this blend though is definitely a forefront flavor but not up in your face like in Chai teas often and other teas because of the sweetness. I would say that people who dislike licorice root would probably like this tea and not detect it. Although I am a fan of it myself.
Flavors: Cardamom, Ginger, Mango, Sweet
Yogi is a brand, along with Trader Joe’s and Celestial Seasonings, that I should give up on. I keep trying these teas with the hopes that I’ll find one that I really enjoy but they more often than not let me down.
I recognize that bagged teas are typically not of the same quality of loose leaf selections, but I’d like options for budget teas when I’m in-between paychecks.
The scent of this tea is, as expected, lovely, but the flavor is mediocre. It’s not as bad as some of the other teas I’ve had from Yogi, but the flavor is too mild for my liking.
I initially steeped the bag for 3 mins at boiling but opted to add the bag back to my cup. At 4 minutes it was almost to what I’d consider (barely) acceptable so I chose to steep it for a total of 5 minutes before removing the bag.
At 5 minutes the tea was a deep yellow color and the herbal flavor was prominent with a very light mint aftertaste. Unfortunately, while not undrinkable, the flavors were still far too subtle for my liking and steeping for five minutes began to push the limits creating a very mild unfavorable aftertaste from it being steeped for so long.
This is something I’d recommend to someone craving a subtle flavored tea, but not something I’d recommend for someone like me.
Flavors: Lemon, Lemongrass, Mint
I’ve had this tea sitting in my tea canister for a period of time so I’m not sure if the flavor has weakened to the point that any tasting notes are so mild they’re almost insignificant.
Scent wise I do pick up on hints of caramel and apple but with each sip I only taste the rooibos and a slight hint of apple. The tea, otherwise, barely registers on my palate.
I may purchase this tea again once I work through the overflow I currently have and see if I notice a difference in flavor. If I do I will update my review to indicate so. For now it’s on my do-not-buy list. There are better flavored teas marketed towards “diet” that I’ve encountered.
Flavors: Apple, Caramel, Rooibos
From what I’ve read, Kombucha loses many of the properties it’s known for when it’s boiled, so I’m not sure how effective this is from that standpoint. It gave me a little bit of a stomach ache, so if you have a sensitive stomach I’d recommend drinking it on a full stomach.
As for the taste, it was fairly mild and pleasant, and almost tasted a little carbonated (I’m assuming because of the kombucha).
