Episode 194: Dry Desert Lime

Numi Organic Tea’s Dry Desert Lime does not look appetizing at all. Old dried limes, a paper sack brown pack…it’s almost like they don’t want you to drink it. But we can’t judge a book by its cover. (Or in this case, a tea by its packaging.)

If you’re a fan of limes, I think you’ll be in for a treat! There is a lot of sour lime flavor in here with some hints of lemon and orange. It would be a great tea to drink if you’re sick, but it would also be fantastic iced and maybe mixed with some sencha for sweetness. I’m glad I gave this a try!

Episode 206: Rooibos Chai

One thing I love about rooibos is how well it takes on other flavors. But will that carry over to a bagged tea? Let’s give Numi Organic Tea’s Rooibos Chai a shot and see!

I gotta say — this has some complex flavor for a bagged tea! Strong notes of clove and ginger with a nice light finish of cinnamon and allspice. Because rooibos is used as the base, it tastes a bit lighter than your average chai, which means it would really be good iced. I’ll have to get some more of this!

Episode 210: Chocolate Pu’erh

I’ve been super pleased with the pu’erh offerings from Numi Organic Teas, so I had a feeling this chocolate pu’erh would be pretty satisfying. Along with the title ingredients for this blend, there’s nutmeg, vanilla, orange peel, and cinnamon.

Wow…this is really delicious. (And y’all know how I feel about chocolate teas.) The depth of the pu’erh matches the richness of the chocolate perfectly, and the additional ingredients round out the blend. It’s great hot, but as an iced tea? Spectacular. So much chocolatey goodness. I’m a fan!

Episode 219: Honeybush

Out of all the tea types I’ve reviewed on here, I’ve tried honeybush the least. Don’t blame me though! A lot of the vendors I’ve gotten tea from for the show don’t carry it, but I’m glad to try this plain honeybush offering from Numi Organic Tea.

So what does honeybush taste like? Honey, not surprisingly. But there’s also a nice natural caramel sweetness with a bit of a root beer-ish aftertaste. It’s impossible to oversteep, caffeine free, and a great tea hot or iced. Kids love it too!

Episode 228: Rooibos

Rooibos was one of the first types of loose leaf tea I tried when I first started getting into tea. It’s often flavored — I’ve tried several flavored rooibos blends here — but thanks to Numi Organic Tea, I’m able to try it all on its own.

Rooibos has a gentle, natural sweetness with hints of vanilla and molasses. On it’s own, it’s a nice robust cup, and it’s smooth and easy to drink with no bitterness. It almost seems wrong to flavor it since it’s great on it’s own, but this would taste really great with a touch of cream. Mmm!
