A choice of tea over the standard Chamomile or Lavender, kick it up a bit with some herbs, some good fruits to give of notes and what did I got? A fruity-herbal aromatic, light tasting of a fruit cocktail with assertive but moderating touch of ginger on the first sip. The second time around I actually slurped the tea to make out the missing herbal components, its quite a tangled mess of flavors that tends to be mute on the first and second intake. I decided to give it some time to cool down and what do you know? The herbal component shown itself and I quite pleased of it but it needs to be a little assertive with the herbs. A choice drink over the standard chamomile and Lavender, its quite a tea I should say!

slurping is a good thing when you want to really go all the way into the tea inkwell!

Agreed, though an “un-cooperative” tea may need some “exploration” to really find its profile. I was really looking for the herbal-ness to shine out a bit more than stay back. The only tastes that was assertive was ginger( not surprisingly), it just needs to assert a little more but not all the way where it starts conflicting sorta like hibiscus tea. Its still quite a drink in my opinion.

Bio

I’m a tea lover and a traveler. I believe in delving into cultures and cuisines. In so doing, I have found tea to be the most exciting and adventurous beverage in the world that has played a role in history and in the lives of many. Now that’s a shrub isn’t it!
Note: I may be a purist at times where some teas needs to be enjoyed naturally, yet I do enjoy many other teas that find its way into my palate!

Favorite Teas: Yunnan teas, the staple Assam and some Darjeeling, love Japanese greens, and “indie” teas either home grown or unfamiliar regions i.e. Turkey, Georgia, love Tisanes, Oolongs, some white teas, and my favorite staple: Chai teas.
