Grabbed a bag from a tea box. This isn’t one of the tastier vanilla honeybush blends I’ve tried. As usual, you get a bit of pepper. The honeybush isn’t weak at all, which was nice, but it also wasn’t the best flavor. I didn’t taste any vanilla. All the reviews seem to agree about this one.

Grabbed this bag from the tea box since I love lavender. I’m not a huge tulsi fan, so the tulsi in this was just all right to me. The lavender was much milder. It was all rather herbaceous, but refreshing cold. I liked it well enough, but would have enjoyed several times as much lavender.

I like the effect of tulsi but the taste does nothing for me, so I mix it with a bit of lavender.

Nice chamomile with a little mint and maybe something extra. It’s a little sweet and is quite refreshing cold. This one is pretty reliable. It’s simple, but I don’t really get tired of it.

My manager gifted us a Stash sampler last Christmas, so I have one or two bags each of about 25 or 30 different Stash teas. This is one I probably wouldn’t have purchased on my own, simply because I get tired of the hazelnut chocolate combo. Even though I like it, it just seems to be everywhere and has been for the last fifteen years or so. But tonight I did want something chocolaty and since this is decaf it seemed a good pick. I read through some tasting notes to get some ideas and came across Caitlin and her recipe for a chocolate hazelnut latte. I made it just as instructed, except I used six ounces of water instead of Stash’s recommended eight. Steep according to package instructions, add 1/3 cup frothed milk and one tablespoon chocolate syrup.

I’ll admit, my first thought was that it tasted like watered down hot chocolate. My husband tried it and remarked that at least it was better than what you get at hotels, the stuff from the hot chocolate dispensers. That’s not saying much. It does taste like chocolate at least, but I don’t taste any hazelnut. Or anything nutty for that matter. The milk makes it creamy, which I enjoy, and the chocolate syrup adds some sweetness. I wonder how much chocolate I would taste without it. It did have a strong chocolate scent before steeping, so that’s something. I guess.

Also, I just remembered that this is supposed to be a decaf black tea (or it is a decaf black tea rather). I’m not tasting any tea at all! Such a disappointment now that I think about it, because it really does just taste like a watered down chocolate herbal. I know it’s just a Stash tea bag, so maybe I shouldn’t have high expectations, but I was hoping this would be a good one. Surely there are some Stash blends that are decent or even excellent. Maybe I’ve tried one, I’ll have to go back and look at my notes. I have several more Stash teas to go through though, so I hope some of them are good at least.

There are a few Stash holiday blends that I like. And their lemon ginger is decent.

I went back through my list and saw that I liked the Chocolate Mint oolong. That one isn’t in my sampler, but I do have a couple bags of the Lemon Ginger.

This reminds me a lot of Teavana’s White Chocolate Peppermint Rooibos but without the strong licorice root aftertaste. I don’t taste any lavender, but I’m okay with that. I like this one more than I expected, but probably not enough to buy a whole box. Thanks for sharing, Devon Bartholomew!

Sipdown 95-2021
Why not drink a Christmas tea in May?
I smell a ton of cinnamon, but I’m not really getting any in the flavor. It’s mostly a slightly bitter spearmint. Maybe a touch of cinnamon in the aftertaste? Overall pretty boring, and not something I need to drink again.

drank Earl Grey by Stash Tea Company
1020 tasting notes

Woof! The smell of the teabag is heaven! There is only bergamot oil in Stash’s Earl Grey but it’s this really intense lemon scent with that deeper, peppery bergamot tone. Steeped up, it has a lightly biting, balanced bitter tannins, earthy-woodsy flavor and moderate bergamot. I added just a splash of almond milk to counter that whole made-with-fannings deal. It actually ended up tasting and smelling much like orange, maybe like orange pulp but again, deeper, kind of sparkly. I know that doesn’t make sense so maybe like the smell of candying orange slices but not sweet. No complaints here, but it’s a rare occasion for me to indulge in highly caffeinated black tea bags.

Flavors: Astringent, Bergamot, Biting, Earth, Lemon, Orange, Tannin, Wood

I have some of their Double Bergamot EG teabags in my cupboard, and still haven’t gotten to them yet.

I’ve never had the Double Berg. Always been curious about it but I won’t buy a box since I’m a blacktea teabag wuss. I shall sip vicariously through your eventual note :)

One of the simplest tisanes-called-chai I’ve had, consisting of only cinnamon, red rooibos, ginger and clove. I really enjoy the cinnamon but it’s all I taste. Some rooibos in the undertone and maybe clove but I’m not sure. No ginger to be found. So it’s basically cinnamon tea with rooibos lending some color.

It is nice to have a cinnamon tea that doesn’t get a strong sweetness and all its flavor from cinnamon oil or flavoring. A little sweetness builds up while I sip the cup; a mild spiciness lingers with the cinnamon taste. There’s nothing glaringly bad about this cup and I am enjoying it for what it is, though with a name like Spice Dragon, am I wrong to want more from this?

Flavors: Cinnamon, Drying, Rooibos, Spicy, Sweet

I’m not a fan of lemon and ginger together but this was decent. So many lemony teas taste watery and ginger can easily dominate. The lemon and ginger were full-flavored here. Pretty sour, not too spicy. I didn’t notice the hibiscus.

Flavors: Ginger, Lemon, Sour, Spicy

I picked this up on a whim at Whole Foods, because I love pear and a pear green tea sounded just lovely!

Honestly, it’s pretty good for a teabag. The pear is a bit candylike, but it does taste crisp and pear-like to me, maybe teetering on the edge of apple. For some reason I’m getting banana though? And not actual banana, but Laffy Taffy banana. So that’s a bit distracting, ha ha! The base is actually quite nice, mellow and nutty without any bitterness.

Quite good! And I can imagine it being delicious as an iced tea… Ironically, I just received another pear green tea today, in the form of B&B’s Jasmine Poached Pears. So that’ll be interesting to compare!

Flavors: Apple, Banana, Candy, Grass, Hay, Nuts, Pear, Smooth, Sweet

I went through a pear green tea teabag phase a while ago haha!

I love pear! Can’t wait to try the B&B blend.

Mastress Alita

Jasmine Poached Pears is a favorite of mine!

Lexie Aleah

Interesting I like this one and definitely get the candy pear from it but don’t recall ever tasting banana. Now I want to make a cup of this… (:

Tiffany :)

This and their loose leaf pear tea are on my list.. if I don’t get to it before then I suppose there is always WFM in Austin. (On my “to do” list for my Austin trip)

I really like this tea. I love minty green teas. I like that it has peppermint and spearmint in it. The lemongrass mixes well. Due to stomach issues I have to have green tea in the morning. I really like the brand Stash. I prefer loose leaf tea but Stash has really good teabags. This tea has a lot of flavor.

Imagine a desk. Desk overfilled with notes, notebooks, laptop, FullHD screen 28", postcards, pens in all colours, tea… there is even my camera I was too lazy to put in the bag…
And in this desk this tea from ashmanra was hidden. I found it as I just knew it has to be there. So thank you!

Again, as always I sniff the tea bag, I coughed because of ginger. Oww, it will be too strong in ginger… It’s not!

It is quite plain. Mildly lemony and mildly gingery. Not a fiery ginger. The aroma isn’t great as well, it’s kind of cleaner like. Somehow, not much impressed of this tea… nothing that would say “this is a reason to drink it again”. It’s okay though. Nothing impressive, but nothing to avoid.

Flavors: Ginger, Lemon

Very few Stash teas are impressive in my experience so far! I am glad it was not absolutely terrible, though!

In honor of today’s sipdown theme – St. Patrick’s Day. This was a letdown, honestly. I haven’t found too many Stash teas I really love. This one just didn’t have much flavor at all. For something that has “Super” in the title, I was expecting it to knock me over.

I made a cup of this after seeing CameronB describe this as tasting like banana candy. I definitely get the banana runts now and don’t know how I never made that association before. This is Still one of my favorite boxed teas along with the Melon boxed tea from Stash.
