2775 Tasting Notes
I made a cup of this tea this afternoon and managed to get my Emo-feeling self to write a blog post. The tea was terrific, anyway!
Hello Steepster, I am back for a bit, haven’t been drinking much tea lately, trying to avoid the caffeine. I got this at Whole Foods along with a bevy of vitamins and some green juice. It’s been years since I have had this blend but I like it, the peppermint is not too strong and the other herbs make this a nice relaxing tisane. Tonight I go to meditation, hope all are having a nice weekend.
This herbal tisane isn’t too bad, needless to say I am in favor of anything that promotes a relaxed mind, which is why I picked it up. I have a lot of teas with caffeine but it is nice to have some herbal blends as well.
Lavender is not something I’ve been incredibly fond of in tea but I like it okay here. Lots of lavender and sage, I’m not wild about it, will probably finish the rest of it off someday.
Interesting tea here, I am not getting the chance to steep it gongfu style per the recommendation. I got a nice dark brown cuppa, which is a bit malty but also has the essence of red wine. By now I think I’ve figured out that Taiwan black teas are not my absolute favorite for some reason, this tea seems to have a hint of tobacco and bitterness as well although the top notes are very sweet. Not too bad overall, but not going on my list of things to repurchase.
Another new tea from Vitacost! You can call me the Tulsi Mama!
I steeped this for around 5 minutes or so – it has a nice minty clove flavor from the tulsi. I’m not sure what the gotu kola is contributing here, but it is supposed to be a good herb for memory.
I am enjoying the flavor combination here, nice and mellow. I wish I had some of this yesterday… it’s so calming. :)
