I’ve been a big fan of the Yogi Tea company for many years and I was very happy to accept a package with four different teas from the company for review.
I enjoyed each blend very much. Each one has its own fresh and distinctive herbal character.
The Kava Stress Relief Tea is heavy on the cinnamon and is quite naturally sweet. It’s wonderful over ice on a hot day.
I thought the Bedtime Tea was very tasty, and I do believe it helped me to unwind, as well. It has a great licorice flavor.
The DeTox Tea has a lot going on- it is at once a little bitter, but it is also a little spicy. I think it’s really nice first thing in the morning.
If I had to name a favorite, though, it would be the Green Tea Kombucha. It has a complex flavor that includes mint and lemongrass. I love it warm, or iced, and I even played around with using it in a recipe. I stir-fried tempeh and bok choi with ginger in a little organic coconut oil, tamari, rice vinegar, and mirin…then I tossed in some shelled edamame, cooked buckwheat soba noodles, and chopped basil and cilantro. I put these in a serving bowl and poured the green tea over the top…
…then garnished it with some Asian chili-garlic sauce. It was really delicious!
If you like the sound of these teas, you are in luck…the Yogi Tea company wants to give an identical sample pack to one of my readers! So here’s how you enter the giveaway:
