Picture of get soothed - No. 8

get soothed - No. 8 from Republic of Tea

Style: Wellness Tea / Medicinal Tea – Region: Blend

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Jan. 11th, 2011

Since I only ever drink this when I am sick, I can't speak to its effects upon a healthful tea drinker. It tastes like everything tastes when you have a cold, but the temperature, if nothing else, is soothing when applied to the back of your throat.

Cardamon Cinnamon from Republic of Tea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

Jan. 11th, 2011

I want to love this, really I do. But it has none of the guts of cardamom and none of the winsomeness of cinnamon. Instead, it's a mild, very vaguely spicy herbal brew that is decent to drink after dinner.

I find this tea muscular but not particularly illuminating. Do not oversteep. Do not expect any kind of tea revelation, either. Passable.

I like both apples and cinnamon. I tasted neither in this tea. This is foul, chemical tasting brew. Though "brew," with its connotation of actual tea, gives this more credit than it deserves.

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 25th, 2010

Whoops! Didn't let me finish... There is something ineffably yummy about this tea. It shouldn't work (black AND green? With "flavors of peach and cucumber?) but it is bright, grassy, and drinkable, less earthy than a green but less tannic than a black. I keep drinking more, just to try and put my finger on what's g...

Lemon Ginger Tulsi Tea from Organic India

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 9th, 2010

There's lemon, there's ginger, there's...something else. The flavor of tulsi, which is difficult to pin down, made the tea a little milder and earthier/grassier than I expected. An interesting after dinner option.

A strong, workmanlike chai. Ginger leads, which I enjoy. Nice body to the remaining flavors, which are assertive yet nicely blended. Good value.

The only thing passionate about this tea is my desire to get away from it. Like drinking purple vinegar.

The nose is amazing, nectar-sweet and citrusy. The taste doesn't quite live up to it, but this is a light, pleasant herbal tea, fruity but without the sting of a zinger. Can be a little sour if oversteeped.

Sep. 19th, 2010

I really enjoy this tea. The coconut lifts the aroma into something really special, and rounds out the warmth of the other spices. Chai always feels decadent, but this to me feels extra-decadent. I do wish it were a little less pricey.

I think this tea is OK, but I am a sucker for vanilla black teas. Neither the vanilla nor the tea is top-notch, but you can't beat the value.

33 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 1/5
May. 11th, 2010

Well....about all I can say for this tea is that it is a cut above the Lipton teabags. Although I'm not sure I can even say that, because the teabags possess an unmistakable musty flavor that, although not particularly tasty, is unique. This is just mediocre black tea.

Well, this is kind of....OK. Doesn't have the complexity of the really good chais, merely a mild cinnamon flavor with some overlays. Not unpleasant.

I've always found green tea to be a little astringent but I love the way the nutty/charred flavor of the toasted rice cuts through the earthiness of the green tea. There's a faint taste of burning matches, a little iron, grass. Good stuff.

Ginger Peach from Republic of Tea

Mar. 25th, 2010

I usually hate fruit teas, and to be honest, I'm not too fond of the fruitiness in this. Somehow, though, the peach and ginger flavors balance each other nicely, and the assertive base of black tea still comes through. I associate this tea with afternoons, the kind when you need a jolt. Also smells great.

Mar. 25th, 2010

I do like this tea. The aroma is fabulous: honey, vanilla bean, the grassiness of the chamomile. The taste isn't far behind. Plus it isn't too pricey, so it makes a good stanby evening tea. Much less bland than chamomile alone.

Well....it tastes like it tastes. I could probably ID this tea blindfolded. It reminds me oddly of yerba mate and never brews very strong. Aroma is pretty much nil. I only really drink this tea at hotels.

43 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 27th, 2010

This tea is a horrible combination of astringent and cloying, with a taste remarkably reminiscent of those dreadful Fisherman's Friend lozenges. On the other hand, it works. Short term, but when you have a sore throat you'll take short term.

Pretty tasty, though minus the delectably smoky flavor of the Republic of Tea's green tea w. toasted rice. Brews quickly, often on sale at my local coop.

I want to like this tea more. Very strong ginger kick, which I enjoy, but a lemongrassy/medicinal foretaste, which I don't. I want something soothing yet spicy after dinner; this makes me feel like I'm being wormed.

Yes, I am ashamed to be drinking a tea so irremediably punny. Yes, I it tastes of vanilla and nutmeg and workhorse black. Yes, I love it. Yes, yes, yes.

This is pretty tasty. Very spicy, perhaps too many sharp as opposed to sweet notes for my taste. A little expensive but a nice, strong chai.
