2 Tasting Notes
Had my first cup of this tea tonight and I thought it was quite good. I’m not sure quite what I expected before I took my first sip but I thought it would be slightly sweet although this was probably just some preconceived notion drawn from some super sweetened artificially flavored peppermint tea I had drank in the past. Anyway, I steeped for 7 minutes and I honestly did not taste the rooibos all that much. I’ve always found rooibos to just taste kind of earthy based on the what I’ve drank in the past. I’m pretty new to the world of tea so my tongue might be off but I just found the flavor to be simply very minty. This didn’t bother me in the least bit cause I like the taste of mint. I actually found it almost cooled my mouth. Anyway, I didn’t find the tea incredible but, whenever I’m in the mood to treat my tongue to a nice minty experience, I’ll brew up a pot of this stuff.
This is the first of the many tea’s I ordered from Rishi Tea. I find drinking this tea gives me a great relaxed feeling after a long day. The sweetness of the jasmine is pronounced but not to strong and the earthy taste of the green tea in the background is just superb.
