2 Tasting Notes
I love this tea, if not really for it’s flavor, but for it’s place in my Oh-my-god-I-can-feel-I’m-getting-sick-I-must-stop-this! ritual that I have. It goes like this: Take all of the vitamins and supplements on my sister’s dresser (girl’s got a lot), take a hot shower, drink a glass of ice water and at mug of this with a little honey, take a sleeping pill to force me to get 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep. I’m serious, this works. As for the flavor, I’m not a huge green tea lover, but green tea is not really what I taste when drinking this. It’s got a very minty, anise-y kind of flavor that I think lends itself well to just a little bit of sweetening. I always have this around my house.
So, I just joined Steepster and this is my first tasting note. I can’t pretend that I have a ton of tea knowledge beyond Lipton’s tea bags and fishing through the giant crazy plastic bag of teas that moves with my roommate from apartment to apartment. Which is where this came from. I liked this tea, a nice flavor if a little weak, but then I have no idea how old it was when I found it (I’m going to have to have to alter our tea storage situation I think). I tend to lean toward black tea over green or herbal teas, and this one was not too bitter or anything. It was very good with my weird breakfast of leftover cabbage and potatoes. Wow, that is crazy English isn’t it? Anyway, I hope that in the future I’ll be able to provide some more insight and knowledge on my tea!
