Episode 008: Aveda Comforting Tea

Aveda’s Comforting Tea blend (well, it’s a tisane if we’re being super technical) is a perfect introductory herbal tea. The lush aromatics of peppermint, basil, and sweet fennel are sweetened to perfection with the addition of licorice root.

This is the same tea Aveda serves in their spas worldwide! If you’re having a rough day, brew up a cup of this and lose yourself in the taste and aroma. You’re feeling better already!

Episode 012: Pisces Tea

Adagio Teas has this astrological tea blend series that I really wanted to give a try. As a Pisces, I was drawn to the Pisces blend.

There’s a lot of flavors going on here — citrus, chamomile, black tea, rooibos, etc. — and sadly, the taste is more similar to what you’d find from a regular supermarket black tea. I really wanted to like this, but…nope. I’m not a fan.

Episode 030: Tazo Passion

If you’ve been to Starbucks, then I’m sure you’re familiar with this deliciously floral and tart hibiscus tea blend.

I had a few bags left over from a Tazo assorted pack of teas I was gifted a while ago. Hibiscus is the main flavor here, and it’s highlighted with orange peel and cinnamon. It’s fantastic iced with a squeeze of honey or agave. Not bad as a mixer either!

Episode 042: Men’s Activity Tea

ESP Emporium’s Men’s Activity Tea is a familiar blend. It reminds me a lot of Aveda’s Comforting Tea I reviewed last month; super aromatic, sweet, and slightly spicy.

There’s a ton of ingredients in here, and the mix of flavors produces a tangy yet satisfying cup of tea. I’m not sure what makes this a “men’s” tea specifically, but it did give me some get-up-and-go after lunch. Your mileage may vary.
