Episode 164: Chamomile Fruit

Oh joy…another chamomile. This blend from Just Add Honey blends together the plain Jane of herbal teas with lemon myrtle, honeybush, citrus peel, lemongrass, licorice root, and stevia leaf.

It sounds like a lot of inclusions, but they all come together to make a pretty pleasant cup of tea. The honeybush and citrus cuts through the usual apple honeyed sweetness of chamomile, and the licorice root gives an interesting aftertaste. I like it!

Episode 323: Kava Stress Relief

Some tea vendors create blends just for great tasting tea. Yogi Tea takes a more holistic approach to their blends; each blend is specially created to aid or fortify the body. Such is the case with their Kava Stress Relief. This ayurvedic medley of herbs and spices is meant to ease tension and promote relaxation. (And yet, the tea comes with a warning that’s anything but relaxing.)

Health benefits aside, this tea tastes…weird. It’s kinda like a Tootsie Roll wrapped in a Red Hot with a bitter aftertaste. But you know what though? THIS WORKS. I definitely felt more relaxed and at ease almost immediately after drinking it. Your mileage may vary.

Episode 339: Hibiscus Key Lime

Oh goody, another hibiscus tea. I actually like the flavor and richness of hibiscus, but I don’t like how it pops up in every other herbal blend I try. To that end, I figured I should seek out a tea that was primarily hibiscus, like The Republic of Tea’s Hibiscus Key Lime.

This is a really tasty tea! The hibiscus is allowed to be the star here, and the stevia, lime, and lemon serve as nice additions. I’d like this hot or iced, although iced would probably be best. Try it!

Episode 343: Super Ginger

The two teas from DAVIDsTEA I tried earlier were really something, so I’ve got high hopes for this Super Ginger blend. This is a mix of ginger root, black pepper, white pepper, pink peppercorns, and stevia for sweetness. Let’s give it a shot!

Whew…this is not “super” at all. I was expecting something nice and spicy, but this didn’t even give me a tingle! This is very weak in terms of flavor, although the ginger was nice and warming. This just did not deliver for me. Your mileage may vary.
