Typhoo Organic Herbal Tea Range Review – We Tried 3 Variants

Typhoo Organic Herbal Tea Range Review – We Tried 3 Variants

Sealed using cotton threads, the Typhoo Herbal Tea range has mild flavors but powerful effects. Made using organic ingredients, these may just become a pantry staple in your kitchen.

Established in 1903 by John Sumner, Typhoo is an iconic tea brand that offers an extensive range of revitalizing brews. 

In October of 2005, Typhoo and its associated brands were acquired by the Apeejay Surrendra Group. This group is one of India’s largest tea producers, with over 15 tea plantations in Assam. Typhoo stepped into India in 2008, when it was first offered to cricket fans during the Indian Premier League in Punjab. 

Typhoo has since been expanding its base and reach across India. 

From black and green teas to fruit infusions, Typhoo has added a range of organic herbal tea bags. We ordered three variants of the Typhoo Herbal Tea- Relaxing Organic Herbal Tea, Reducing Organic Herbal Tea, and Cleansing Organic Herbal Tea for our review. 

The caffeine content, the economical value, how the tea bags were packed, were staple pins used, could we taste the ingredients are some of the critical questions we have answered in our Typhoo Organic Herbal Tea review. 

Typhoo Organic Herbal Tea Range – Everything You Need To Know

The Typhoo organic herbal teas are available in 3 variants. They come in beautiful packaging and have a premium feel.  

This is an organic range, and the packaging displays four organic certifications by SGS organic, India Organic, USDA Organic, and Jaivik Bharat.

As these are herbal infusions, there is no caffeine present in any of the variants. The teas are made with a mix of herbs such as fennel, turmeric, ginseng, and chamomile, to name a few. Each variant offers a specific benefit. 

The three Typhoo Herbal Tea variants we tried were: Relaxing Organic Herbal Tea, Reducing Organic Herbal Tea, and Cleansing Organic Herbal Tea. 

Variants

There is a wide variety of herbal teas available in the market. These consist of herbal blends, fruity infusions, flavored green teas, masala chai, etc.

The Typhoo Organic Herbal Tea range is certified organic and uses a blend of ingredients like- chamomile, fennel, psyllium husk, lemongrass, liquorice, etc. 

These are the variants of the Typhoo Organic range of herbal infusions: 

The Relaxing Night Time Organic Herbal Tea is available in blue and yellow packaging. This caffeine-free brew is created with ingredients that have soothing qualities. 

The Detoxing Organic Slim Tea is a purple-colored pack of 20 staple-free tea bags, like the rest of the range. The main ingredients of this herbal infusion are fennel, senna, and psyllium husk – all known for being digestion-friendly herbs.

The Cleansing Organic Root Remedy infusion is a vibrant orange-colored pack, which mentions ginseng, ginger, cinnamon, and turmeric as the top 4 ingredients used in the mix.

Form Factor

Instant tea is generally packed in three ways. 

One being the dried leaves form, where you can add the tea leaves as per your preference and let it boil. Then, there are tea premixes that contain milk powder with other flavoring and sweetening agents. The third is tea bags that are the simplest and most convenient to use. You start by boiling water and letting the tea bag sit in your cup for 3-5 minutes. 

The Typhoo Herbal Tea is individually packed in teabags, each weighing 1.8-2 grams, depending on the flavor. The tea bags are staple-free, look sturdy and premium.

Ingredients 

The Relaxing Organic Herbal Tea has chamomile, spearmint, and fennel as the primary ingredients while the Reducing Organic Herbal Tea uses fennel, senna, and psyllium husk. The third variant- Typhoo Herbal Tea Cleansing variant contains turmeric, ginger, and ginseng. 

Price

All three variants of the Typhoo Herbal Tea contain 20 individually packed tea bags. Each tea bag weighs between 1.8 to 2 grams, depending on the variant. The Typhoo Herbal tea range is priced at Rs 210/-.

Origin

This brand has its roots in the UK. Typhoo has been amongst Britain’s preferred tea brands for sometime. 

The manufacturing unit/ Typhoo factory is located in Moreton, near Liverpool.

Speciality of Brand

Typhoo was one of the first brands that sold ready-to-use packaged tea. Gradually, they started manufacturing products for every sector of the tea market. 

Typhoo has developed innovative flavored teas like Moroccan Mint, Blackcurrant tea, lemon and lime zest, and many more. 

Typhoo Herbal Tea Range Review – Our Factors of Consideration

When it comes to ready-to-use teas, specifically ones packed in tea bags, the packaging aspect becomes as significant as the taste and economical value of the product.

Did you know: FSSAI banned the use of staple pins in tea bags since 2019. This step was taken because tea bags expand when they come in contact with water. If these tea bags are sealed with a staple pin, chances are the pin gets loose and can be ingested by the consumer.

If ingested, it can lead to internal bleeding or gum injuries. The food business operators (FBO) had cited the expenses incurred by the use of staple-less machines for packaging. This is true, indeed  the cost is comparatively higher as there are limited manufactures for staple-less machines throughout the world. But keeping the health and well-being of the consumer in mind, FSSAI had decided to go head with the ban. 

Typhoo’s organic Herbal Range has staple-free tea bags. In addition to this,  we reviewed the three variants of the Typhoo Organic Herbal Tea for aroma, the after-effect it claims to have, and convenience. 

1. Taste

Typhoo Herbal Tea- Relaxing Night Time: This Typhoo Herbal Tea variant has a subtle chamomile flavor. The flavour is fresh.

Subtle aromas of the other ingredients were noticed. 

Typhoo Herbal Tea- Reducing Slim Tea: The Slim Tea from the Typhoo Organic Herbal Tea range has a minty taste. In addition to this, there was a mild sweetness. We think the cinnamon added to this variant brings the sweet flavor. 

Typhoo Herbal Tea- Cleansing Root Remedy: This variant has classic notes of turmeric and cinnamon. You can add honey to jaggery if you prefer your beverages to be on the sweeter side. Overall, the flavor of this Typhoo Herbal Tea is also delicate. 

2. Flavour

Typhoo Herbal Tea- Relaxing Night Time: The three primary ingredients used in this herbal tea come together for an effortless blend. No flower buds or petals, but we did get a fresh chamomile flavor. 

Typhoo Herbal Tea- Reducing Slim Tea: Compared to the Relaxing tea from the Typhoo Herbal Tea range, the Slim Tea had a coarse texture. This flavor variant tasted minty with sweet undertones that come from the addition of cinnamon. 

Typhoo Herbal Tea- Cleansing Root Remedy: This Typhoo Herbal Tea has a mellow taste. We could primarily taste turmeric and cinnamon with a very mild ginger flavor. Since the ingredients are similar, this could be described as a subtle version of homemade kadha. 

3. Aroma

Typhoo Herbal Tea- Relaxing Night Time: Though we couldn’t taste the spearmint and fennel as intensely as chamomile, the aroma of these ingredients was unmissable. 

Typhoo Herbal Tea- Reducing Slim Tea: This Typhoo Herbal Tea variant has a fresh fragrance. The most dominant aroma comes from the fennel.

Typhoo Herbal Tea- Cleansing Root Remedy: Out of the three ingredients used, we observed a turmeric and ginger aroma. That being said, the turmeric aroma was more robust than ginger. 

4. Refreshing Factor

Typhoo Herbal Tea- Relaxing Night Time: The fine texture of this herbal tea variant changed the color of the water almost instantly. The tea bag is adequately filled such that the ingredients mix well with water.

Typhoo Herbal Tea- Reducing Slim Tea: This variant has a coarse, fibrous texture. The tightly sealed pouch allows for adequate brewing in 3-5 minutes.

Typhoo Herbal Tea- Cleansing Root Remedy: Like the Slim Tea, this variant also had a coarse texture. It brewed well in the same amount of time. 

5. Ease of Preparation

Typhoo Herbal Tea- Relaxing Night Time: Chamomile is considered to be an ingredient that has relaxing properties. This delicate blend had a soothing effect.

Typhoo Herbal Tea- Reducing Slim Tea: The mint flavor of this variant has felt calming yet refreshing. 

Typhoo Herbal Tea- Cleansing Root Remedy: The after-effect of this Typhoo Organic Herbal Tea was very soothing. Safe to say, this felt like a warm hug to our throat.
