    Wonderfully flavorful and smooth
    April 20, 2012
    In the opinion of a non-expert, Stash's ginger breakfast black tea is well-suited for any time of the day.

    My initial impression was that the flavor of the ginger was a bit too subtle. But, as is so characteristic of ginger, the earthy heat emerged in greater presence about a third of the way through the cup, and I found the sweetly spicy experience delicious from that time to the last mouthful. The flavor of the black tea is not overpowered by the ginger, but blends very nicely to create a harmoniously smooth, rich taste with a spicy aroma.

    I find that proper brewing temperature is imperative for good flavor in this tea. Personally, I like to use water heated to just under boiling point. I also find that the flavor is complimented by a touch of milk and sweetener.

    Overall, this tea is an excellent find for those fond of ginger. Smooth and lightly spicy, this is definitely another great one from Stash.

    A delicious and refreshing brew
    April 20, 2012
    From the perspective of one who is not fond of green tea, Stash's goji berry green is absolutely delicious.

    I am not an expert, but I find the flavor of this tea to be wonderfully complex. It's bright, fruity, and floral, with a very light and refreshing finish. The flavor of the green tea is subtle, and lacks the aggressive astringency and "bitterness" that I tend to notice and dislike in most greens.

    Personally, I find that the tea releases its most interesting flavors when it is iced, rather than hot, and drunk with just a touch of sweetener. Regardless of personal preferences, though, this offering from Stash is sure to provide an intriguing and memorable flavor experience.

  • Chai Spice Black Tea

    Sublime in flavor and aroma
    April 11, 2012
    From the perspective of a non-expert, Stash's chai spice black tea is absolutely delicious. Beautifully spicy and aromatic, but balanced enough that the flavor of the black tea comes through.

    It seems that sweetened condensed milk is a popular accompaniment for this tea, but I can't speak on the merits of such a method. I've always used a good dose of milk and sugar, in traditional chai fashion.

    This chai is excellent regardless of selected additions and complements, though. Pair with it whatever you may, you will nevertheless be imbibing a fantastic tea.

    One of my favorites
    April 11, 2012
    This delightful fusion blend has long been one of my favorite Stash teas. It is wonderfully smooth and simultaneously mild and flavorful, with no bitterness.

    I've heard from a few experts that this tea is too subtle to tolerate milk. I am not an expert by any means, but I have always disagreed with that. I find a splash of milk and a spoonful of honey quite accommodating to the flavor of the tea.

    However one does choose to prepare it, though, the gentle but oh-so-pleasant flavor of this blend makes it one you won't want to pass up.
