60 Tasting Notes
I picked up this tea when I was at DT in Moncton as we do not have one in Fredericton (which I hope changes soon). I finally got a chance to try it out this morning and it reminds me a lot of pink flamingo but with a hint of vanilla. I don’t see vanilla on the ingredient list so maybe its one of the flowers that gives in a vanilla-like finish. I quite like it, especially on a morning where is it -35 with the wind chill.
I received this as a free sample from my last Davids Tea order. I steeped it for about 2 minutes at 200 F as based on the reviews below they indicated the tea was really strong so I didn’t want to steep it for long. I found it tasted fishy like it tastes similar to my omegas 3 vitamins i take in the morning. Glad I only had a small sample of this rather than 50g. I am sure there are people who love this.
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 :)
