Picture of Tulsi

Tulsi from 24 Mantra Organic

Style: Tulsi / Holy Basil Tea – Region: ?????

85 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Mar. 9th, 2017

This is a delightfully spicy herbal tea. It sort of wakes you up even without the caffeine. Though a CTC style loose leaf, it resteeps quite well -- but expect to infuse longer for the second cup. It's been a lot time, but I remember thinking this was inexpensive when I got it.

Rooibos Vanilla Chai from Adagio Teas

Style: Rooibos Chai / Spiced Rooibos – Region: ?????

70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 8th, 2017

It's not bad, but it isn't the tastiest blend I've ever had. The rooibos, the spice, and the vanilla are all there, but I think the black tea chais tend to be preferable. The sweet and spice are indeed nice, so it's certainly worth a shot. It also holds up decently well to repeated steepings.

Rooibos Lemon Cloud from Adagio Teas

Style: Flavored Rooibos – Region: South Africa

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 24th, 2017

I like this herbal tea. The rooibos is solid and smooth. The lemon blends well with it, though fairly subtle. The stronger flavor, which I notice after each sip, is of marshmallow. Hence, it's more sweet than citrusy. It's able to get a couple of quite good cups.

Jan. 17th, 2017

This is a solid herbal tea. I like the mix of flavors with the rooibos, though orange isn't my favorite flavor to have in a hot tea. For this reason, other flavor mixes work better for me. This is fruity, floral, sweet, and refreshing.

This is a lovely, robust tea with a pleasant sweetness. It would make a solid substitute for coffee lovers with a moderate sweet tooth. I could see myself drinking this very regularly.

Organic Ginger Tumeric Herbal Tea from Trader Joe's

90 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Nov. 6th, 2016

This is a very good tea. The teabag has fannings that infuse very quickly. The aroma and the lingering flavor have the ginger/turmeric spiciness -- which is wakening yet soothing. This makes a particularly good drink for a brisk fall day. Though the second steep takes longer, it's also very good --better than many tea ...

Mmmmmm, now this is tea! If this was available loose leaf, it'd be perfect. The smell is delicious and the flavor is perfect -- a lovely balance between the spices and the rooibos. It's good on its own, but a cup of this is amazing with just a pinch or two of stevia added. It adds a smooth sweetness without overpowerin...

Wild Berries from Twinings

Style: Fruit (Herbal) Tea – Region: Blend

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 19th, 2016

This solidly fruity, moderately robust tea isn't bitter or overly tart and has a pleasant juiciness. It's very inexpensive, so if you like fruit teas at all it's worth a shot. Like other Twinings tea bags, it infuses quickly but is good for only one cup. Overall, I like it, but it'd be much better if done loose leaf --...

Oct. 10th, 2016

This isn't the strongest or brightest peppermint tea, but it is real smooth and it hits the spot. No bitterness is detectable. I like peppermint far more than spearmint, so I was happy to see this in my sister's cupboard when visiting her. I'm currently in the middle of gestational diabetes, so I'm just excited to be a...

Berries and hibiscus tea go together so well. The bold, tart flavor is delicious, and the fruit cuts what might otherwise be sour by adding more flavor and sweetness. This is a very well balanced herbal tea, in my opinion. I've only tried this tea hot so far, but it sounds perfect for chilled teas too. My only complain...

As someone very into fruity teas, I love this one. It's noticeably tart in a solidly pleasant way. Great when I'm in the mood for a strong caffeine free tea. If you like tropical herbal teas, this one is worth a shot.

Meh. It's not a badly done tea, but it's not a flavor I'm often into. The orange and herbaceousness both come through. Not bad if that's a taste mixture that appeals to you, but orange isn't my favorite fruit to drink hot. Still, the cup has grown on me a bit while I've been drinking it.

I actually really like this tea. The ginger gives it just the right kick when you're craving something with a tart spiciness. This herbal tea is pretty solid, in my opinion.

This tea is a great idea, but the execution needs to be better. Not that much flavor infused even in the first cup, but what I could taste and small was delightful and Christmasy. I bet I'd love the loose leaf version, but the bag version just isn't as amazing as it could be. *sigh*

This herbal tea is pretty good. I detect a little bitterness, but the vanilla helps. It's a pretty smooth drink, and it made two decent cups. People who really like chamomile will likely enjoy this one.

Wow, well, either chamomile is growing on me, or I've finally learned how to brew it. This one has a very strong (but not bitter) flavor. I heated up the water for one minute in a microwave before adding the sachet, and (based on the reviews below) kept the steep time shorter than normal. Once it looked sufficiently go...

A great herbal tea when you crave something tart. I love its strong fruitiness. The aroma has a floral accent as well. An excellent cup as far as I'm concerned. :-)

I had it iced from a coffee shop. Because it was cold I drank it very quickly. It was wonderfully refreshing.

Zesty! Not as complex or interesting as it could be, but quite nice. Then lemon and rooibos flavors go well together. Pricier than what I would like, but a nicely refreshing blend with a nice aroma.

I've had a hard time finding a chamomile that I like, but this one I LOVE. Smooth, aromatic, perfectly balanced, soothing, and easy to brew. Instead of bitter, it tastes almost sweet in a delicately lemony way. This is chamomile perfection. :-)

Excellent herbal tea! The flavor and aroma are both dominated by pineapple and coconut--both of which I like. It's delightfully fresh and sweet without sweeteners. I do wish that the flavor was more intense, so I'll try a higher concentration next time. It brews easily without going bitter, and so can brew as long as ...

EXCELLENT flavor combination. I love the fruitiness and the slight astringency (not bitterness) from the hibiscus. Both complement the rooibos very well. This sounded very good to me, so I'm glad that Rishi doesn't disappoint. If the ingredients list sounds good to you, you'll love it too.

It resteeps multiple times...

Very good! Sweet, soothing, and rich without bitterness. One of the better blends I've found with peppermint. I actually tried this one in sachet form, but it's the same as their loose leaf. Definitely impressive for chamomile. I easily got two good cups out of it.

Very good! The tumeric is the most notable, followed by ginger, then lemon. The flavors are balanced very well. Perfect when you want something invigoratingly spicy at the perfect level of intensity.

Very nice tea! Even the dry leaf is robustly fruity. Love the balance of fruitiness, tartness, and floral flavoring. The first cup had a nicer, redder color than the second, but the flavor was still good. There is no actual tea (or chamomile, rooibos, etc.) in this one; good for when you want flavor, but not caffeine. ...

Not bad, but not the best peach-flavored tea I've had. The chamomile isn't bitter and adds body, and the aroma is strongly of a sweet peach. There's also a creaminess of an unknown source, and it's not quite right. After I started drinking it, I had an odd feeling--like my nose and the top of my throat had become sligh...
