Picture of Lemon Ginger Tulsi Tea

Lemon Ginger Tulsi Tea from Organic India

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

67 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 27th, 2013

I am not a huge fan of ginger, but ginger is good for an uneasy tummy. I do like Tulsi's other health benefits, so having a ginger Tulsi tea can be very helpful to some temporary conditions.

When I drink this tea, I don't taste much lemon. Really, the only thing I can taste is very strong, spicy ginger. If you re...

Original Tulsi Tea from Organic India

Style: Tulsi / Holy Basil – Region: India

50 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 27th, 2013

I keep Tulsi tea around for it's health properties, but the Original isn't my favorite. It's too grassy to be a flavor of it's own, I do not care for grassy/earthy flavors as a whole. This tea works better when lemon is added.

I do like how it helps calm nerves and reduce stress when consumed.

Chamomile Citrus from Mighty Leaf Tea

47 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 21st, 2011

I did not care for the flavor of this tea. Although it contains orange flavors from flowers and orange peel, I tasted none, just a bad lemon flavor that doesn't even resemble real lemon juice.

The tea does work well for calming frayed nerves, but for me, is not a palate pleaser. I like the silk bags and unbleached...

Berry DeTox from Yogi Tea

Dec. 10th, 2011

This tea has a not so enticing potpouri aroma, but luckily, does not taste like that. It has a nice berry flavor, with natural sweetness from the Stevia. The honeybush also makes it a little smoother, so it has a nice blend.

If steeped too long, more than five or six minutes, it gets very intense in flavors of fen...

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 14th, 2011

I highly prefer this tea over the cheaper black teas available. The long leaf tea used here really shines through and provides a smoothly balanced flavor complex. Slight floral notes add to the overall experience, providing a lovely cup of tea.

Longer brewing may yield a more bitter end to the cup, but even so, it...

Nov. 10th, 2011

I find this tea to have a more "sophisticated" flavor than other types of black teas. It's more complex and diverse in flavors as you sip. Aside from the caffeine doing its job, the flavors alone wake me up when I drink it.

Brewing too long (which I tend to do) makes it quite bitter. The tea bag says brew for fou...

Sep. 30th, 2011

I was very interested to try this tea, as cocoaberry was a new flavor in teas for me.

It had a nicely smooth flavor, which I enjoyed the most. There was also a lovely after-taste which lingered of smooth cocoa. Very pleasant,

I tasted a bit of the green tea and it hinted at bitterness, but it was kept very min...

Luzianne Tea from Luzianne

Aug. 2nd, 2011

If you want a very basic tea, Luzianne delivers. I like it for a general black tea, or for making iced tea using hot tea bags. It provides consistent flavor that is as black tea should be, with nothing fancy.

You can find it on sale from time to time, but it's not too expensive normally. It is comparable to Lipto...

I use peppermint tea to naturally help with digestive troubles I get. I really like this peppermint tea from Celestial Seasonings. It is very intense, though, so beware!

I don't find it to be sweet like candy canes, but just pure in peppermint flavor. It does help calm my stomach issues, which is most important t...

May. 19th, 2011

This is a nicely mellow tea. I like it as an unwinding tea. It is very smooth with absolutely no tartness or bitterness to it. A great red tea for me, and I'd recommend it to others wanting to experience red tea.

Perfectly Pear® White Tea from Celestial Seasonings

Mar. 20th, 2011

I wasn't sure how pear and white tea would taste, but it isn't too bad. Not one of my favorites, but it does have a sweetness and delicacy that makes this tea ultra smooth.

I find it to be a soothing tea and enjoy drinking it mostly on a cold, dreary day.

I can taste a little vanilla in it, which I find quite ...

Mar. 20th, 2011

This tea was given to me as a gift, and it is quite good. It is very easy to make, since you only need cold water, and makes really fast, really peachy tea.

Adding sugar enhances the peach and sweetness, but even alone it isn't bad, especially if you make it a little strong.

It goes down easy and is perfect wh...

My husband actually picked this tea out himself one day awhile back. He love caramel and chocolate, and likes Chai tea. He really enjoyed the flavor of this tea.

I didn't like it simply because I cannot palate caramel. However, I can say that it has a nice blend of the flavors and mixes with chai well. Adding mi...

Antioxidant Supplement Plum White Tea from Celestial Seasonings

Mar. 20th, 2011

I can't say I really like this tea. It is a smooth tea, but the flavors of plum mixed with white tea isn't the best. It has an "off flavor."

While the tea isn't what I would call bad, it just doesn't have the sweetness I'd prefer. But, at least it is smooth and contains antioxidants.

I find this to be a very good Earl Grey tea. It isn't too heavy in flavor, but still gives my tastebuds a treat when I drink it.

The aroma is lovely, from the very few seconds of steeping until the last sip.

I enjoy this tea, its mild flavors, and its mellow nature.

I simply love this tea. It is like hot apple cider without the sugar. I has a wonderful aroma, like a high-quality candle and the flavor is amazing.

I add nothing to this tea and it is nearly perfect. The sweet apples blended perfectly with cinnamon. It is so lovely on a cool day. It tastes so much like actual ...

I dislike the earthy flavor of plain chamomile tea. But, because I truly feel it has soothing and calming properties, I decided to try chamomile with lemon.

This tea has a nice lemon flavor that really tones down the earthy flavors, so it works well for me. It isn't tart or sour, but instead mildly sweet and nic...

I am not a fan of the flavor of chamomile. It's too earthy for my tastes. However, it does carry a soothing and calming effect when I drink it, so I found this with mango and figured I'd enjoy it since I love mango.

This tea does have a nice mango flavor that really helps dissipate the earthy chamomile flavor. Th...

If you want just a plain green tea, I recommend this one. It was moderately bitter, but I didn't mind that. It was still fairly smooth, and actually contained a lot of flavor.

The aroma was nothing special, just smelled like green tea to me. But the flavor was better than the aroma, so that's what I really care a...

I won't choose this tea again. It had a bad overall flavor, and I don't say that very often about teas.

I detected a lot of bitterness from the green tea. Normally I don't mind that at all, but perhaps it was the other flavors of the ginseng in it that really turned me off. It just had a bad, bitter flavor with a...

I am not a big ginger fan, so I will start by saying that. This tea, however, does have a decent blend of flavors, and the ginger isn't overly strong. I taste about equal parts green tea, ginger, and lemon.

But with the nice flavor blend, it is almost bland. That may sound odd, but that's how I felt. It was du...

I found this tea to not taste as complex as I'd hoped. The flavor blend sounded just wonderful, but I didn't detect nearly the vanilla flavor as I'd hoped and expected.

Black currents are the main flavor focus in this tea, and while they certainly taste good (and a bit tart), it leaves a little to be desired. It i...

This tea is a mouth-zinger! I really enjoy it, though some may find it too tart or sour for their tastes. To me, I think it is a great flavor.

I think it tastes like a fresh peach pie, but a tart peach pie. It certainly has a wildly bold flavor, one that when it hits your tongue the first time, makes you pucker a...

This stuff is actually pretty good. It is a very simple and fast way to make real iced tea, without using instant powders that contain ingredients I don't care to consume.

I love the flavor of this tea. It has a lovely, mellow sweetness to it and it very smooth.

This is a very healthy tea too. Red tea has no caffeine, but white tea does, though very little. I don't feel any caffeine effects from drinking this tea, and I'm sensitive to caffeine.

This tea needs nothing added to it...
