You got spinach off this? I got sugar snap peas – but definitely that greenery taste.

1.5 tbsp used for 375 ml

Very nice blend of flavours. Savory notes are present. Spice (from the ginger), mint and peppery notes. I can’t taste any of the goji berries or rose. Overall, the flavour is quite bland – there is no one flavour that sticks out which the others compliment. I can see how this would be a nice mixed with a plain tea, as is recommended on the Verdant Tea website. I love the mix of traditional herbs and learning the history behind each of their uses (also found on the Verdant Tea website).

Mineral sweetness. Smooth velvety mouth-feel. Faint roasted notes. Hint of chocolate tone. Brisk crispness on finish but not astringency or bitterness. I can definitely see what they mean about the scotch note- definitely present in the aftertaste. There’s a coolness on the palate similar to after having consumed alcohol.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 1 min, 30 sec 3 tsp 13 OZ / 375 ML
