Organic Easy Now® from Traditional Medicinals

Style: Wellness Tea / Medicinal Tea – Region: Blend

57 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 9th, 2014

I was curious to try this one; I tend to like to drink relaxing herbal teas, and I like the various active ingredients, which include passionflower, chamomile, lavender, catnip, and rosemary, as well as some of the inactive (flavoring) ingredients.

I thought this was pleasant but I didn't notice any relaxing effects...

Breathe Easy® from Traditional Medicinals

Style: Wellness Tea / Medicinal Tea – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5

I tried this out of curiosity and am evaluating it more for taste than for any medicinal properties.

The tea bag is wonderfully aromatic, always a good sign, and the aroma is complex, suggesting mint and licorice but with a lot of other things going on.

Upon brewing, the cup has so much going on in the aroma that...

Organic Chamomile from Traditional Medicinals

Style: Pure Chamomile Tea – Region: ?????

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
May. 24th, 2011

I've tried a lot of chamomile teas and there are usually only subtle differences between them. This one was above average for a chamomile tea from a tea bag, but only slightly so.

This chamomile I found to have a cleaner, clearer, lighter character, with less of the heavy, lingering bitter aftertaste. Slightly mor...

Organic Raspberry Leaf from Traditional Medicinals

Style: Wellness Tea / Medicinal Tea – Region: Blend

67 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 14th, 2011

I was drinking this as a beverage, not a medicinal tea, so I made a single 3-minute infusion instead of the recommended 10-15 minute one. I imagine it might get a bit too strong if brewed that much: 3 minutes was plenty strong and even perhaps a bit too much.

The cup is greenish brown, like some mild black teas. A...

Organic Hojicha from Traditional Medicinals

Style: Hojicha – Region: Japan

57 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 7th, 2010

On the heavily roasted and dark side, more coffee-like in aroma and fewer of the green tea qualities come through. Good, but not terribly complex.

There also isn't the most generous quantity of leaf in the teabag. The company recommends 8 oz. of water per teabag, and a long infusion. I brewed it this way and it w...
