2307 tasting notes

OK then, time for something without caffeine.

After my “I Love Lemon” experience (not), I was a bit daunted by this to say the least…

the particles are very finely ground up here, I should have used a finer strainer since all of the particles settled to the bottom of my infuser mug, it’s a porcelain mug with matching strainer but the holes are sizable.

This is much more mellow than the Bigelow tea, thankfully. It’s lemongrass, lemon rind and lemon flavoring. The color is kind of a dull beige but the flavor is zippy. It isn’t too tart and I could drink it without sweetener. The flavor is nice but I’m not sure how I feel about this tisane. I almost feel that it needs to be blended with something, like a green tea perhaps, to give it a slight amount of body. This also would be a good one to mix with tulsi, so I think I’ll try it that way soon. I found it fairly refreshing, but I’m not blown away. Might be nice iced.

Amy, If leaf particles in your tea are a problem, I’ve used finer mesh filters that really work. I’m notsure if your Finum glass came with one, or if it is large enough. I like these:

…….the brewing basket, or the golden or universal set. There are others as well.

I do have a few mesh filters. I just didn’t use one this time…

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
