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.
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!
Flavors: Peppermint, White Chocolate

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
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 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 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
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.
