{Tea} Favorites: 8 Flavored Teas for Your Next Cuppa

{Current} Tea Favorites: 8 Flavored Teas for Your Next Cuppa

A couple of months ago, I shared my new-found love of tea, especially as the nursing mom of a new baby.

Today, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite teas with you.

I’ve been buying a lot of my teas on Amazon because I save an extra 20% with my Amazon Prime + Subscribe & Save discount. I can often find single boxes, although I’ll buy the bigger packs of my very favorite flavors, and I try to buy loose leaf whenever possible.

That said, my absolute favorite Amazon buy is this Numi sampler because it’s a great way to try a variety of Numi flavors at a great price. I get a new one every couple of months just because there are so many great flavors in one place!

And here are my current favorite flavors:

Numi Honeybush

This herbal tea is caffeine free with a natural honey/nectar flavor that I love in the evenings.

Numi Chocolate Pue-rh

Yes, CHOCOLATE tea, need I say more? This is really my all-time favorite tea. The chocolate flavor definitely comes through in the tea, but it’s not sickeningly sweet or rich. I add a couple of drops of stevia and a splash of unsweetened vanilla almond milk for the perfect afternoon pick-me-up. It’s really good!

Yogi Echinacea Immune Support

Although I’m careful not to overdo herbs while I’m nursing, I have been drinking a cup of this a day as I fight a cold this week, and it’s not only packed full of good stuff but really tasty too.

Yogi Vanilla Spice Perfect Energy Tea

I honestly didn’t love this tea at first, but it grew on me as I kept drinking it, and when I ran out and couldn’t find a new box at the store, I found myself really craving it. If anything, I would love a stronger vanilla flavor, but this is my go-to tea these days, and not just because it promises me energy!

Tazo Calm Chamomile

The other day I accidentally got a full caffeinated latte instead of a decaf and someone recommended I drink chamomile tea to counteract the caffeine. I happened to have a couple packets of this chamomile in my tea box that I hadn’t tried yet, and I was immediately hooked. I’ve been drinking a cup before bed every night, and I need to replenish my stash because I look forward to that cup all day.

Tazo Refresh

Another one of my favorite herbal teas is the Tazo Refresh, which is made from spearmint and peppermint leaves. It’s strong minty flavor is crisp, cool and refreshing, and it really does make me feel more energetic and focused even when I’m avoiding caffeine.

Good Earth Sweet & Spicy

I might have overdone this one because I find myself reaching for it a little less often right now, but Sweet &  Spicy is such a great flavored tea — with a little bit of sweet and a little bit of spice — that I think it will always be a staple for me.

Bigelow Cinnamon Stick

I love all things cinnamon, and the Bigelow Cinnamon Stick tea is just a simple, flavorful cinnamon tea. This is definitely another of my staples!

Keep Calm and Have a Cuppa

    I usually buy Twinnings tea. I like a nice cup of English Breakfast or Darjeeling in the morning, but towards afternoon and evening I tend to indulge in a Jasmine Green Tea (I like Twinnings brand better than the others I have tried) which is delicate in flavor with the slightest hint of jasmine. They also have a nice herbal called Wild Berries which is terrific! Chocolate tea is a new one for me. I may have to track this one down!

    I have been eagerly awaiting this post! These teas all sound so delicious that I want to try them all. I have a tremendous tea stash for an avid coffee drinker trying to switch to tea after having our third baby a couple weeks ago. I’ve been a long time fan of Red Zinger tea, but I’m enjoying trying lots of new flavors and varieties!

      I think the wide variety of flavors is what I love most about tea. There really are so many to try!

      I haven’t had Red Zinger, but I’m adding it to my wishlist! :)

    I have so many teas in my cupboard. How do you store all of your teas? In the boxes they came in?

  • Diana

    Yes, do share how you keep your teas! Mine are not in any kind of a good order, but they don’t fall out when I open the cupboard either… :)

    I’d love to try that honeybush! Sounds relaxing and delicious :) The People’s Republic of Tea makes some kind of tea (green, maybe? maybe not) with ginseng and honey which is my staple hot drink at Panera. Yogi also makes a fabulous chai–I think it’s called Chai Redbush (used to be Chai Rooibos) which is caffeine free and has all the chai flavors like cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger. It’s perfect for fall but might taste out of place in the spring.

    And have you seen the glass teapot from Mighty Nest? It is gorgeous! (But I wonder if I’d have a hard time keeping the glass looking clean. Hmm….)

      Ooh, the caffeine free chai sounds delicious!

      I’m going to look for the teapot now (although l’m afraid our hard water would leave it looking icky fast!), and I wanted to be sure you saw this post: http://lifeyourway.net/how-i-organize-my-tea-collection/

    My favorite tea is by Clipper. It’s organic white berry tea. It can be difficult to find but right now Amazon is selling it again.

      Mmm, I might need to try that!

    I just like plain jasmine green tea, but my hubby loves to try all the flavored kind. He likes anything berry flavored.

      I’m not a huge fan of the berry ones, but those are my girls’ favorite too!
