drank French Verveine by The Tao of Tea
2475 tasting notes

I admit I drink a lot of flavored, jazzed up and funked up tea, especially at work. It gives me something fun to look forward to during the day! I usually start the day with a flavored black or green tea and then switch to oolongs or herbals in the afternoon.

At nighttime I really want something simple and light sometimes. This is a simple french verveine which I am really enjoying. I definitely feel it is mellow and relaxing and helps me a bit with after dinner digestion. If you have never tried it, the flavor is citrusy but not overwhelming (I am drinking mine straight). It does a slight licorice aftertaste. Next to chamomile it’s also one of my favorite soothing teas for frazzled nerves. I will really need to try blending this with black tea someday.

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
