1424 tasting notes

This tea is a little fruity, a little spicy, and a little something else. That something else might be the juniper, or lady’s mantel, or silver weed, or st. john’s wort.

Even though the first ingredient is cinnamon, the flavour is not overwhelming. There’s a little warmth from the ginger, but mostly I taste “spice” and raspberry leaves with a background of apple.

I do like this as a nice alternative to the desserty teas I’ve been drinking in the evenings, but it is rather herbal medicine tasting. I used to drink a lot of tisanes for their health benefits, and I don’t want to diss this one, but I think that sort of flavour takes a bit of getting used to.

I added about 1/4 tsp honey to a 1 cup mug, but I don’t think it needed it.

Oh, and the ingredients etc are exactly the same as http://steepster.com/teas/banff-tea-co-dot-the/31192-ayurvedic-keep-well-women-uma

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)
