Stash Tea Lemon Ginger Green Iced Tea Powder, 12 Count Packets

Founded in 1972, Stash Tea Company originally operated out of an old Portland Victorian style house, supplying loose herbal teas and bulk herbs to natural food stores. Starting in 1975, the company broadened its focus to include bagged teas and then began to sell a full line of traditional, specialty blend and herbal teas directly to fine restaurants and through a mail order catalog to consumers. Today, Stash Tea Company is one of the largest specialty tea companies in the United States. The company derives its name from an entertaining aspect of tea folklore. In earlier centuries, tea was a valuable commodity traditionally transported by clipper ship. The ship’s captain often was presented with some of the finest teas for his personal use. This supply was his “stash,” stowed carefully as his “private reserve.” Today, the term is still used to denote anything put away carefully because of its preciousness.

The mint tea I bought

When I saw the mint iced tea powder on the website, I thought I would like it. But when I received it and tried one, I was very disappointed. It was the green tea and not sweet at all. The flavor was nothing at all like an iced tea like I was expecting. I had to add sugar to it to get a flavor that I like to be similar to regular iced tea. I don’t even know if I’ll be using the others I had received. Sorry about this, but you did ask for my review on this.

stash tea powder review

I wish I had read the product description better….I didn;t realize this was sweetened…I do not like the sweetened teas…now I am stuck with 2 orders of them….but the other green tea powder is great.

This was a big disappointment. There was no raspberry or pomegranate flavor to this. The color is green and not very appealing to look at. However it does work as a great antioxidant.

Refreshing summer beverage

I purchased this item when it was on sale. I wasn’t certain if I’d like it but I’ve read so much about the health benefits of green tea I wanted to try it. This is a nice, pleasant beverage. The flavor isn’t too strong. I add a packet of Splenda to make it a bit sweeter. The powder dissolves easily in cold water. The flavor is natural not fake. I was impressed enough with it that I have signed up for auto-delivery.

Pretty good stuff, with the right sweetener

This is one of my favorite water add-ins. I think it has a really crisp, clean taste…with a hint of grassy-ness. The tea particles tend to settle at the bottom of the bottle, if left standing for more than a few minutes, so I have to shake it up periodically. There are times when I feel like I’m drinking something that was squeezed off the blades of a lawnmower, but this seems to be based on my choice of sweetener. It tastes great when I use stevia, but when I use Sweet & Low…I get a bitter-ish grassy taste.

Don’t bother

I bought this “flavor” and the raspberry pom and while they are consistent, it’s useless.

If you plan on making a pitcher of tea, forget it, it takes 4 packs for 64 oz and is still very, very weak in flavor, and it must be consumed in 12 hours (so they say) so you’re much better off brewing your own.

However, if you’re idea is to “stash” this in your purse (for the ladies) or pocket (for men, which would be weird) it’s still misses the mark. One packet does very little for flavor with 16 oz of water so you’d have to use two, and WHO drinks just 16 oz of water when out to eat or something of that nature? Also, with only 8 to 12 packets in a box (depends on flavor, who knows why?), that gives you 4 to 6, 16 oz drinks for $3. Not sure it’s worth it at all, I’d rather drink lemon water when out than this.

powdered tea

Stash Premium Mint Green Iced Tea Powder, 12-Count Packets (Pack of 6) Light mint taste, easy to mix powdered tea, great on ice.
JonasPoint Comfort, TX

Flavorful and refreshing

I ordered this item because it was on sale and because of the health benefits of green tea. I wasn’t certain how good it was going to be but I was pleasantly surprised. It tastes refreshing and fruity. The flavor isn’t overpowering or fake. I mix the powder in a sports bottle along with cold water and splenda. The powder dissolves easily and the drink has a nice green tea and blueberry taste. I was so impressed that I have signed up for automatic delivery. It’s a great product.

Very Reasonably Priced and Delicious

If you love green tea then you will be impressed with this green tea powder. The instructions say to add one packet to 16 ounces of cold water but I’d recommend you try two packets and one packet (0.35 oz) of stevia. The flavor of the tea with only one packet is fairly mild, so mild in fact that you can barely taste the green tea flavor. When you order this tea you will get six boxes with 12 packets in each. If you use two packets per bottle of water you get 36 drinks. That is only .47 cents per drink if you get free shipping – I ordered some books too. I think that is fairly reasonable. I look forward to trying this tea in shakes and with fruit juices. A website is given for additional recipes. There are a few interesting recipes like the ones for “White Chocolate Green Tea Ice Cream,” “Green Tea Papaya Nectar” and “Green Tea Sugar Cookies.” You will probably find many uses for this and I’ve even used the tea powder to make a lovely hot tea. Just use one packet per 8 ounces of hot water. No brewing required. This tea dissolves very easily in hot or ice cold water. I can highly recommend it to you.

Way too weak for my tastes

What can i say, I love iced tea. I drink a lot of it, and love the convenience of these new individual serving size packets. I am also a big fan of Stash products, or rather of all the other stash products I have tried.
I purchased a case of all 4 varieties, (when i say i drink iced tea, i am not kidding) and these were all way too weak when i mixed them in my 16 ounces water bottle.
I finally found that i needed to dissolve 2 packets in a small bit of hot water first (if not the tea clumped on me), and than add a packet of sweetener before adding the rest of the water just to make these palatable.
Over all I am very dissatisfied with the product and will stick with the other brands that are out on the market.

Good flavor, but not real sweet. I add a little stevia for my sweet tooth.
LeonRound Top, NY

waste of money

The tea was very weak and not that good. Now I have six boxes of tea I that no one in my family likes.
TarenAgawam, MA

Great product – at last!

LOVE this! I dislike drinking plain water and have been looking for something easy that I could add to my s/s water bottle (gotta be good to the environment, right?) The flavor is great, ease of convenience is wonderful and the hint of sweet is not overpowering at all. I can drink my green tea with or without sweetener. The only thing is if you want to drink green tea all day long, the calories WILL add up – I think each packet is 60 calories. I drink 2 (32 oz) bottles of water a day so that would be 120 calories of sweetened drink a day. But I will still give the product 5 stars because the product is fab. I’d just pick something else if I’m going to pound water all day long (perhaps the blueberry green tea one which is NOT sweetened – it’s excellent as well) I’ll use this for one bottle and a non-sweetened one for the other. Best of both worlds. Enjoy!

Lightly sweet and cheeper than an Jamba Juice Matcha Shot!

I used to always go to Jamba Juice for the Match green tea shots…after trying this iced green tea powder I was hooked. This flavor is lightly sweetend and the raspberry and pomegranate flavors are just subtle enough to not mask the true flavor of the green tea. I don’t mind the funny green color…after all it’s green tea.

Terrible

This iced tea is terrible. This is the first Stash product that I do not enjoy. It is not iced tea. It tastes more like powdered peppermint leaves.
OttoStowell, TX

Beware, if you have a corn allergy!!

The first ingredient in this mix, before the tea is even listed is maltodextrin. If you suffer from a corn allergy, please do not forget to read the label & unwittingly drink this. I have no idea why there is more maltodextrin in this product than the main product, the tea itself. I realize this is not a review, let alone a “helpful review”, as I did not describe the taste of the product or even review the product. I couldn’t review this product, if I wanted too. I want people with a corn allergy to be advised of the ingredients in the tea. I didn’t know how else to inform folks about the ingredients except for on the page with reviews. I could not give the product more stars, as it contains more maltodextrin, than tea itself.

lightly sweetened green iced tea powder

i have never liked green tea but i knew it was good for me so i have been drinking it for a lot of yrs. i grew up living in the western usa and our neighbors were japanese. they were sweet and gave us tea from japan. my father enjoyed it every morning and added a tablespoon of honey and a little cream to it. he smoked all his life and died at 92. anyway, i found when at times i would quit drinking it i wouldn’t feel as good as i did when drinking it. i got tired of boiling the water with the teabags and then getting everything in a container to put into the frig. i really drank a lot of it. well, i stumbled onto a warehouse to pick up some things i had ordered and noticed this tea. i was immediately interested as you get to drink the whole tea leaf which gives you 10 times more antioxidants. wow, that was good for me so i got a couple cases and when i ran out searched the internet for stash brand. i really love it. i love that it is LIGHTLY SWEETENED, i love that i can just open a packet and throw it into my tumbler, add ice and water and be on my way. it’s just right. but more then anything else i love the way it makes me feel. so much more energy and i truly believe it is helping my well being. no getting around about it i don’t get sick often for sure. now i haven’t tried the other brands and i feel i don’t have to because i am so satisfied with this one. the price is also cheaper. i don’t think you can go wrong with this choice. perky

Great Product

love the ease of having green natural tea anywhear any time . tastes great i love this stash green tea
AlthaWashington, TX

Not So Much!

I bought this tea as I like blueberries, and Stash is known as making good teas. However, when I first emptied the drink mix in the water the color was an odd green (not very appetizing). Once I mixed the powder with water, the resulting tea had no real flavor. I feel like I wasted my money and can’t get a refund.

Finally, an affordable, delicious green tea powder

I love drinking green tea. It is delicious hot or cold, but being able to take it with me anywhere was key. So I searched long and hard for an alternative to canned and bottled green tea which can be cumbersome, expensive and hard to come by in most parts of the US. In the beginning, what I found was either too expensive, had sugar in it (which defeats the purpose of drinking green tea in the first place) or did not get very good reviews. Then I found this product and quickly ordered it at the great price and free shipping. I was pleasantly surprised.

The product works as advertised. It dissolves quickly in cold water making it great to carry anywhere and it tastes great too. The instructions say to use one packet for 8 ounces of water, but actually it should be used with 16 ounces of water, otherwise it can be too bitter.

It not only saves money, but has replaced my canned green tea completely eliminating the number of cans that I need to recycle monthly.

great alternative to bottled green tea

The first part of this review is a history of my health problems and what green tea bottles and sugar had to do with me finding the stash teas products. If you do not want to read that part, skip down to the bottom, and there is the review of the stash teas, only.

———————————————————————

A couple of years ago I had a physical and my doctor told me that my Triglycerides were high. I was a serious soda drinker (sometimes as many as 5 cans per day, not diet), so I decided I needed to start drinking something “healthlier.” I gravitated toward Green Tea because I like it. I averaged 2-3 1/2 liter bottles per day for 2 years (I also averaged about 1-2 cans of soda per day).

I recently had my triglycerides checked again and instead of going down THEY DOUBLED. They were over 300 (over 150 is considered high). I about had a heart attack right there. Now, I am not an overweight person, and have had a fairly high motabolism, but I have started to create a belly (I call it a Dr. Pepper belly because that is my favorite soda. I do not drink alcohol of any kind). I am telling all of this to you because ALL of my other tests came in within normal levels, including all other aspects to my cholesterol.

I did research and found out that if you are not overweight but have weight gain around the belly area, it might be due to consumption of a lot of sugar products. The excess sugar consumed, in this case, can be turned into trigylcerides. I looked at what I was eating and drinking to see if this was the case for me. What I found shocked me. The 1/2 liter bottles of green tea has MORE sugar in it than a can of soda. I checked several different manufacturers of green tea and I found them all to have about the same amount of sugar.

I concluded that between my morning coffee, green tea bottles and soda, I was consuming over 1,100 grams of sugar a week ( or about 4,000 callories of sugar a week just in drinks)!!

————————————————————————-

I was looking for an alternative to the green tea bottles and found the stash tea products. I personally, do not have the time or patience to use tea bags, so I was interested in the tea powders. I ordered the lightly sweetened green tea powder and tried it. And I loved it. I then proceeded to buy the other 5 flavors of the green tea powders and love them also.

There are 4 flavors that do not have sugar added, so I use a few drops of Stevia Glycerite to sweeten the drink. It does not take a lot.

The best thing is that the tea powders cost about 1/2 or less than the bottled green teas I use to drink.

———————————————————————

To end on a personal note, I have altered my drinking habits and now drink 1 liter of the tea powder drink and 1+ liter of water per day. I still drink 1 can of Dr. Pepper on the weekend, but that is it. I have been doing this for a little over a month now and between my altered drinking habits and the fish oil pills, I have lost about 5 lbs. and am due to get my triglycerides checked in a couple of weeks.

I hope this helps anyone that is in a similar situation to me and realize that just because it says its healthy does not mean it is.

TeresiaAlturas, CA

nice substitute for soda or sugary tea

I like the taste of this product, but I have some suggestions:

1) for strongest blueberry taste, use less than the 16 ounces of water that the instructions indicate (my first try came out like water with the merest hint of blueberry);

2) stir REALLY well and be prepared for a bit of sediment anyway, as well as for an oddly green (I know it’s green tea, but I rarely drink green things, so it seemed a bit weird to me at first); and

3) if you’re going to use a sweetener, why cancel out the health bennies by adding something like aspartame or Splenda or etc? I added a bit of agave nectar and found it perfect, but then I also like it without any sweetener at all (as long as I use less water).

By the way, this makes hot tea as well, although it’s marketed as iced tea powder.

Enjoy!

PetronilaBlacksville, WV

lots of uses for this green tea…

lots of uses for this green tea…

I generally like most tea (though not the over-ally flowery blends)…

Being on more of a health kick in recent years, I have added a lot more GREEN tea to my diet in one form or another…
from straight brewed tea <> hot or iced…

To adding the powder to things like salad dressings, smoothies, baked goods, etc.

I am not new to green tea….as I first started drinking it when living in Japan some 30+ years ago….
in the ground form known as matcha.
A quality product. Dissolves well.

I like both the unsweetened and the lightly sweetened.

ElenaCarbonado, WA

Crushed up leaves!

I expected the flavor to be more like that of “brewed” green tea. It really does taste like dried green tea leaves simply dissolved in water. Although I’m sure this is probably a good way to get a concentrated amount of antioxidants, I wouldn’t order this again.
RhodaTyler, MN

My Experience

Ingredients listed: Pure cane sugar, and 100% pure powdered Japanese green tea.

Nutrition Facts: all 0%, except Sodium (15mg) and Sugar (12g)

Basic Instructions: add one packet to 8oz of cold water and stir or shake well to dissolve…

My Opinion: It is too sweet for my taste, even diluted in a 16.9oz water bottle. It almost tastes like sugar water. I think the unsweetened version would be better. 5 star because it delivers what it promises.

This is Japanese green tea. NOT Chinese green tea. There is a difference.

WilleneBellvue, CO

VERY CONVIENENT!

I KEEP THIS AT WORK AND I MIX IN MY SMOOTHIES AT HOME- LOVE IT!

Handy but not to tasty

This tea is not so tasty in my opinion. But one thing about opinions is that every one has one and we do not always agree.

Stash Instant Green Tea

I make a “jug” of this tea every morning and keep a glass throughout the day. I’m delighted to find a source in the US as it was introduced to me in B.C. It does not have the jasmine flavor which upsets my otherwise very strong tummy.
