With chocolate, yerba mate, cocoa, almonds, roasted chicory root, and raspberries, this tea is quite amazing. It smells absolutely delicious and it TASTES just like it smells: delicious. This is definitely one of my favorite teas that I love to bring to work with me on a day that I need a boost. It gives me extra energy from the yerba mate but without the caffeine crash later in the day. It’s not too strong and it’s definitely not sweet (unless you add too much sugar/honey). This is definitely on my favorites list of teas.
The name says it all, it’s full of: goji berries, hibiscus, rosehips, honeydew melon, marigold petals, lemon oil, and apple. This is a tea that is not exactly my favorite, but it’s definitely one that I like to drink every now and then. I love teas with hibiscus in it as well as apple, so how can I not like this one? It’s perfect for the times that I’m working late and need something to pick me up without caffeine in it. Plus, goji berries are supposed to be very good for you.
Next up is a green tea called Toasted Walnut. This tea is nutty and sweet and light thanks to the dried pineapple, coconut, almond, and nut brittle. The green tea is Chinese Sencha and I find that if you like a lighter flavored green tea, this one is probably it for you. It’s not too strong, it’s light and the pineapple and coconut are what keep me going back for more. However, I usually like my green tea stronger, so this tea is one that I don’t often drink. I usually drink it on those cold days that I feel like a “cozy” drink. So this one and Movie Night are definitely my “cozy” caffeinated teas that I turn to.
My next favorite tea is Redberry Tonic. It’s probably second when placed with Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait, but it’s definitely another favorite tea of mine for sure. It has lots of good things in it such as: hibiscus, rosehips, lemongrass, goji berries, sea buckthorn, and apple. This tea is a beautiful color when steeped, it smells amazing and it also tastes amazing. When I am feeling tired after work and I just want to relax, I usually reach for either this tea or Strawberry Rhubarb. It’s one of those herbal teas that just makes me feel better and more relaxed. I love coming home to this tea, grabbing a book, and snuggling into my armchair with a blanket with this tea.
Last, but not least, is Berry Refreshing. This tea contains aronia berries, which are a superfruit, it also contains elderberries, barberries, lemongrass, black currants, blackberry leaf, and hibiscus. I usually drink this tea after I workout and have a shower, I’m not sure why, but there’s just something about this tea that seems to fit perfectly into that order. It’s relaxing, it’s super fruity and punchy like, but very tasty. I find that even though this tea is herbal, it somehow gives me that extra punch to finish what I’m doing for the day. I also like to drink this tea when I’m editing, it gives me a kind of kick that I need to keep going until the finish line, without the caffeine of course.
I’ve been behind reviewing the teas that I do have, but I think now I’m all caught up! I haven’t bought any new teas except for Berry Refreshing lately, only replenishing the teas that I was running low on. However, since my birthday is this Thursday, I’ll probably stop by and pick up some other teas to try…
I’ve tried pretty much ALL the herbal teas, minus the new spring collection and the tea of month for April, and the limited edition box containing some of the old spring teas.
