I tried this yesterday, and found that the peices of the mix were so large, that you couldn’t get a good mix into just one cup. On further inspection of the packaging, it seemed that most everything settled to the bottom, except for the verbena leaves. So I dumped out the bag into a bowl, gave it a good stir and then put it back in the bag.

This time the blend tastes alot more balanced. The verbena is very slight. There is a good balance between the verbena, bamboo, lemongrass and ginger. It is not as spicey as it was the first try. I think I would like this tea to be a bit more ginger-y.

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.
