56 Tasting Notes
I have been trying to limit my caffeine consumption and as a result I have not had this tea for about a month and a half. This morning I thought I would treat myself and take it in my travel mug to work. I prepared it as I usually do and then I remembered that someone suggested adding a bit of brown sugar…..all I can say is wow, it is just so much more tasty! I did not think that was possible but it is :)
Everytime I get a hint of a sore throat I drink this tea and all symptoms disappear. I don’t know if its the tea or me believing its the tea (mind over matter) but whatever it is, I am not going to question its ‘powers’. Plus the tea smells and tastes great :)
I was excited about this tea – lemon, mint and oolong – my three favorite things :) I find the aroma while its steeping slightly floral which is weird. Before posting my thoughts on this tea I figured I should try it a few times as I found I was not getting much mint flavor but rather just lemon and a bit of oolong. I have tried different steeping times but it does not seem to matter as the tea is pretty consistent in the lack of mint taste. So my overall thought is the tea is okay but not exactly what I was expecting and likely when my 26g bag runs out I will not re-buy.
I was intrigued by this tea as it sounded very similar to Mom’s Apple Pie (which I love), so I figured I would get a bag of this to take home. Unfortunately I think I oversteeped it as the cinnamon is overpouring everything. I am not getting the caramel apple taste that I was hoping for. I will try for a shorter steeping time and see how that goes.
