I find that the best

I have quite a collection of teas which is still accumulating & right now what I have are flavored herbals & non flavored herbals & black tea with many flavors & regular tea with many flavors. They are also different brands. One flavor that I have found to be so aromatic & flavorful is the Stash Tea. Has anyone else found that to be as well???? It is such a relaxed & therapeutic feeling to have after a cup of it. Mindy

Actually, I would rather stick my head in a bucket than drink Stash- but each to her own taste.

I have only had the Stash vanilla nut creme & I really did like it alot. If you don't mind me asking..."what did you not like about it??? I have not asked this question before- since I recently tried Stash. I would be curious to know what others think about it- which is why I posted about it. Was it that bad??? But that is true - to each their own taste. Mindy

It's not a matter of bad or good. I don't like flavored teas, for the most part. I avoid teas in bags because the tea quality tends not to be as good. Stash and Bigelow's are two big flavored tea brands- I don't care for either of them, including the one 'everyone loves'- Constant Comment. I also don't like Tazo. I am one of those rare people who cannot stand Earl Grey by any company. Give me a nice sencha, and I'm happy, or a good Chinese jasmine, or a rose pouchong. I'm also partial to Lapsang Souchong, pu-erh, and Prince of Wales. If I'm in a restaurant that only serves Stash, though, I'll drink coffee- and I don't like coffee much.

While intrepidly exploring rec.food.drink.tea, Tea rolled initiative and posted the following:
Interesting that for someone who claims not to like flavored teas, half of the ones you listed are - jasmine, rose, and black currant in the Prince of Wales.
But aside from that comment, I can "tolerate" Bigelows or Constant Comment. God knows, at conferences they're often the closest thing to tea on the beverage cart.
But Stash and Tazo are on my "I'd rather die of thirst" list. I just do not like the flavors as they taste artificial.
Now, my Mariage Freres teas are a different story. ;)

And yet I drink these infrequently. I think a lot of it has to do with the brand, and the subtlety of the flavoring.. Usually I like plain Chinese teas, some Japan greens, and lots of Indian ones- not flavored.
You just hit it on the head. My taste buds are very sensitive- I tend to taste artificial flavors more easily than a lot of people. I wouldn't drink a Stash jasmine, but I'll drink my jasmine from Ten Ren without a problem.
My Fortnum's rose pouchong is another story, too. It goes well with scones and raspberry jam.

I can't speak for any of Stash's regular offerings, but their Yamamotoyama brand "Special Occasion Green Tea" is my tea of choice when traveling and want the convenience of bagged green tea. Brews up very nice with the below-boiling water one usually receives when requesting hot water in restaurants and airplanes. Or with water that has cooled down a bit after spending some time in a thermos.

A couple of years back, I bought a box each of their regular, "Premium" and "Special Occasion" greens. The difference in quality is dramatic - might make a good intro for green tea newbies. I much prefer loose leaf (of course) and my tastes have shifted away from sencha to rare (ie., I can't afford what I like) oolongs and malty Assams.
I also carry a few bags of the Premium or Special Occasion, mainly because the foil packets seem to stay fresh indefinitely. While their black teas are pretty ordinary, they do make a dandy genmai-cha.
