3 Tasting Notes
I don’t like this tea. I don’t know if it’s because I steeped it for too long or not long enough, or if the water was too hot but it was very bitter and had a bad aftertaste. It also left my mouth a bit dry. I had to do some research on the internet to find out how I make it properly since I’m not experienced with tea making and it said not to add sugar, which I think added to the bitterness. I might try it as an iced tea with sugar next time.
I’m not sure about this one. My very first sip wasn’t likeable and I was hesitant to finish the cup, but I must have liked it enough since there’s only one bag left and I’m drinking a cup as I type.
I sweeten it with honey because I don’t like to have cane sugar before bed.
The packet says not to put milk in it, but I’m a bit of a rule bender and experimented one day and I actually prefer it with milk.
I like the calming effects of the chamomile in it and the apple pie-ness feels like a hug during cold winter nights. It’s definitely a winter drink.
When I drink this tea it makes me think of snow settling on the window sill and sitting by the fireplace wrapped in a soft faux fur blanket with a good book.
As a side note, I don’t think this tea is the one shown here, it’s in a brown packet and contains many calmatives such as chamomile.
I like this tea for a casual morning breakfast drink. It’s a nice way to start the day. It makes me think of green grass, bright blue skys and a cool sunny day. I find it to be a little bit boring at times though, I’m more of a fruit-tea or exotic flavours type.
