The dry tea is beautiful to look at. Peices of chopped sage, ginger and tulsi, gogi berries, flower petals. The dry tea smells strongly of sage and ginger.

The tea brews a light, but bright yellow liquid. It smells of sage, tulsi basil and tart lemon.

The taste is very strong sage and ginger. There is a tartness to it, which might be the lemon or gogi or both. I am also getting a very strong taste of the tulsi basil, and it tastes a bit salty to me. I got this same taste with Verdant’s Holy Basil Spa blend. The rose is helping to make the tea very smooth.

Definitely is a warming tea. I think it would make a great stuffy nose tea for sure. However, I would like to try it iced as well.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
