Buddha’s Herbs Organic Chamomile Tea

chamomile tea
I like chamomile tea in the evening or before bed because it does not contain caffeine. Indicated on the packaging, chamomile has been used for centuries as a relaxing and soothing herb that can be used for occasional sleeplessness and minor stomach discomfort. Compared to traditional tea, herbal tea typically has a longer brewing time. Herbal tea’s are more forgiving, as they do not typically get bitter if you get busy and forget your tea sitting on the counter. My wife will attest. The flavor is quite pleasant and has a light flowery tone. Honey pairs well, I put a bit in my cup to sweeten and it was delicious. Get a book, get a blanket and curl up with this chamomile tea. This tea can be purchased here.

This tea was provide to me at no charge for my review.


Snapple Sorta Sweet Rooibos Tea

What’s the point of making a good tasting tea, that’s impossible to find. Today I went to two Rite Aids, they were on the same block. One was around the corner, literally just a few steps away. Why would they put two Rite Aids so close?? I also took a detour and went to a CVS, they didn’t have it either. Last week I went to another Rite Aid and somewhere else that I can’t remember to find a bottle with no luck. This is a good tea. I didn’t think I would like it because of the amount of sugar, 23grams. I thought it would be too sweet, but it wasn’t. It was just right and had a really interesting flavor. Wait! now I remember where I found it, it was in a small convenience store down town UTSAV News.

Update: I also found this tea at a the New Stanton Turnpike rest stop. I bought two bottles. I should have bought three.

Sweetener: Don’t remember

Amount of Sweetener: 23g



Honest Tea Pomegranate Blue Flavored Herbal Tea

Powerful flavor this beverage has! Sweet smelling and sweet tasting. It’s made from Pomegranate, Grape and Blueberry concentrate, and tastes like a conglomerate of the three. I like that the slight tartness of the Pomegranate comes through. Overall it’s not a bad beverage. It’s strong as I said, there is a ton of flavor happening and, it’s a bit much for me. So, It’s not my “cup of tea” but it’s not a bad drink. It tastes sweeter, but it has 23g of sugar. I think this beverage could appeal to a wider audience that likes a sweet taste.

Sweetener: Cane Sugar

Amount of Sweetener: 23 grams (16.9oz bottle)




Aquafina Water

Mostly I had been drinking Nestle Pure Life water. However, while I was in Florida I tried and liked Aquafina water. They are both very good, I don’t know if you call it flavor, because there is no flavor to these waters. But, it has good taste or feel when I drink it. I think I’ve written this before, but I think the good taste is due to the minerals or possibly the pH. Whatever it is, this water has a good balance of it. An example of bad tasting water would be Dasani.
