2786 Tasting Notes
First of all, many thanks to *Tea Equals Bliss" for sending some of this my way!
I steeped about 1 tsp. of this in my infuser mug for about 3 minutes. I got a very light orangish-tan tea liquor with some lovely peach and light muscatel notes. I am detecting a bit of spice here in the cup as well. Very smooth and mild cuppa. I might move onto something darker soon after this; yes it is still cold and foggy here while the rest of the country is roasting!
Thanks to T=B for sharing!
This teabag came as a free sample in one of my recent Lupicia newsletters.
I love art, so I was really into the name of this one! After I realized it was predominately a darjeeling blend, I do wish I had steeped it at a somewhat lower temperature than boiling.
I got a dark brownish-red tea liquor in my cup. There is definitely a lot of second flush darjeeling going on here, and another element which I am guessing is an assam? It has a very woodsy and spicy element in the cup. Sipping on it plain wasn’t too bad at all, but it was also nice with a touch of soymilk. Overall, not bad, but I don’t think I need any more.
I picked this herbal tisane up at Whole Foods a couple of weeks ago but am just getting around to trying it now.
I really like the flavor here and it seems very relaxing – the only downside for me is it’s very minty and peppermint gives me acid reflux sometimes. I like the chamomile, the licorice and the lemon balm. It seems very well balanced and refreshing. I’m not sure I would buy it again due to the strong peppermint flavor but otherwise it’s very enjoyable and will hopefully bring the Sandman by soon. :)
I’ve been curious about this tea for a while and I got to try it yesterday at Spirit Rock Meditation Center. I’m glad I didn’t bother to buy any myself. Unfortunately, it just reminded me of cough syrup and I didn’t even finish the cup I was drinking. Sorry to neg you, Republic of Tea but this was barfy.
Thank you to Indigobloom for sending me a sample of this tea!
I had dinner tonight with a friend at Herbivore and got the chick*n mole with rice and beans and an iced tea. I wanted to get some reading done but I’m sooo tired for some reason. I thought this might perk me up.
A lot of people seemed not to like this too much but I like it fairly well. It seems more like a dessert tea than an actual chai, however. The black tea base seems kind of sweet and I am getting a lot of vanilla here as well as the creamy coconut There’s a touch of ginger in there somewhere. I did add some soymilk to mine but I prepared it the old fashioned way, in the For Life teapot.
