2013-03-21 Yes! A tea from verdant that i really like! I used to drink all these weird medicinal herbal teas, and this tastes like a much, much better version of all of them. I guess the minty flavour that is not mint is the tulsi… i should see about picking up some plain tulsi tea!
I added a pinch (about 8 leaves) of the autumn laoshan green to this, just because. I honestly can’t tell that it’s in there, but i don’t know if that’s good or bad. I used 1 tsp tea in about 8 oz water and steeped 2 mins. Just sniffing it made me want to add honey, but it’s surprisingly sweet on its own. I quickly gave in and added honey, but only about 1/4 tsp. There are definitely more steeps in the leaves, so I’m going to chuck what’s leftover into my timolino tomorrow (mine just has a screen, not a basket), and see how tastebud-shrivelingly powerful it gets after a full morning of steeping.
Anyways, i really like this one. Definitely a unique herbal done right, imo.
Edit: Steep two is just ginger. Boo! Oh well. I didn’t have super high hopes for a second steep on an herbal anyways. :)
