Green Tea Muscle Recovery from Yogi Tea. . . .

I’ve been a fan of Yogi Tea for years now. I have tried many of their flavors and I’ve loved them all. Natural Grocers is having a sale on their Yogi Teas and I noticed a flavor I haven’t tried. It’s called Green Tea Muscle Recovery. I’ve been having slight shoulder and lower back pain so I figured this couldn’t hurt!

Turmeric is one of the ingredients, and turmeric is a known anti-inflammatory. Lemongrass is the second ingredient after green tea, and it definitely has a citrus-y flavor. I’ve been enjoying it warm in the morning. I swear I feel a little relief after drinking it. I would say it’s probably a great tea to have in the morning before or after a workout. One of my favorite things about Yogi tea is the message that comes on every tag. It’s almost scary how many times my message will be something that I needed to be reminded of in that very moment!

This tea does contain caffeine so be careful about what time of day you drink it. But other than that this is a delicious and healing tea that will definitely be in my tea rotation!

Here’s the scoop!

Chai Rooibos from Yogi Tea. . . . .

I absolutely love Yogi teas. I love the little uplifting messages on the tea bags, and I’ve never had a flavor I haven’t loved. I also love Chai tea. I’ve been cutting back my caffeine intake, with the goal to completely cut it out of my life. I was kind of nervous to try this at first because I don’t always love Rooibos. I usually drink it for the health benefits, but sometimes I find it a little too earthy for me. But Yogi teas were on a great sale at Natural Grocers so I felt brave enough to try this.

What can I say, it was love at first sip! The delicious blend of spices like cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and ginger really stand up and mask the earthiness of the rooibos leaves. It’s spicy, warming and soothing. And the earthiness of the rooibos actually compliments the spices. The tea is a lovely red hue which for some reason made it even more enjoyable to me. The spiciness is there, but not overpowering. I would call this a Chai for beginners. It wouldn’t scare away someone new to Chai.

And because it’s so similar to standard Chai made with black tea, I didn’t feel like I was missing anything. And the aromatherapy woke up my senses without the caffeine. I’m very glad I tried this brew, and I will be buying it again and again. It’s a delicious, hearty and warming cup of tea that’s perfect for anytime of the day. Rooibos has so many health benefits such as aiding in digestion, anti aging, and has many minerals including calcium!!

Soothing Rose Hibiscus Skin Detox from Yogi Tea

I have been a fan of Yogi teas for quite awhile. I discovered this skin detox tea a few years ago, and I love it so much. It tastes a little sweet, a little floral-y, and very refreshing. The rose seems to balance out the hibiscus, so there is none of the hibiscus tartness. It tastes delicious hot or iced.

As far as the benefits to the skin, I really do notice that my skin has an extra glow after drinking this. The results are almost immediate. I enjoy the taste and the benefits of this tea. I like to have a cup in the winter, especially if I’ve been out and about on a cold, blustery day and my skin feels damaged and dry from the cold.

If you enjoy Jasmine green tea, you’ll probably really love this delicious blend from Yogi Tea.

Taster’s Review:

Sometimes at work, making loose leaf tea just doesn’t happen.  It is so much easier just to throw some water in a cup and a tea bag.  That is how my week has been this week.  I don’t know what is going on but it has been crazier than the usual crazy it is day in and day out.

Looked in my drawer and this one was in my tea bag stash.  Brewed it up per the instructions on the bag and dumped in ice.

For a tea bag style tea, this is decent.  This tastes very sweet and there is a very very slight hint of green tea.  The plum flavors are what comes thru the most.  This isn’t like a sugary kind of sweet but a sweet you would get from fruit. I wish the lemongrass flavors would poke their head out more.  I am completely missing that flavor.  As to the Kombucha, I don’t really know much about it and not sure what it adds to the flavor.  I need to do more research and see what I can come up with there.

This tea is simple and easy.  No a whole lot of mess or fuss.  I wish the spearmint and lemongrass flavors were stronger but overall I really enjoy it and would pick it up again.

Taster’s Review:

Interesting… yes, that is how I would describe this tisane:  interesting.

I must admit that I was a little disappointed by this tea.  That is not to say that I didn’t enjoy it – I did!  It just isn’t quite what I expected.   Based on the description of this tisane, I expected it to be a spicy chocolate-y blend.   However, I found the anise to dominate the cup and what I taste is… well, licorice.  Now, I love licorice – LOVE IT!  But, it is certainly not what I was prepared to taste when I brewed this tea.

As I said, the licorice flavor is strong.  It is sweet and has a pleasant sharpness to it, and tastes a lot like a piece of black licorice that’s been lightly dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with a masala blend of spices.  I am not getting a lot of the chili flavor – but there is a VERY pleasant peppery kick at the finish.  It is pleasantly warm – with just enough bite for interest.  There isn’t a lot of chocolate flavor here – just a teaser of chocolate – but I like how it adds to the overall interest of the cup.

It is a very delicious blend of sweet and spicy with an emphasis on the sweet.  I suggest adding a drizzle of honey to the blend to bring out the sweeter side of the anise (without the sweetener I found this to be a little too pungent for my palate).  A very nice, INTERESTING change of pace!
