2059 Tasting Notes
Tea of the afternoon here – this is good with a splash of soymilk and nice for a dreary winter’s day.
Current beau told me I don’t need to buy any more tea for the next 5 years but it’s a good thing I don’t take orders from rational, sensible people (or anyone, really….)
This came in my Nature’s Tea Leaf order but I haven’t had the chance to try it yet. I know that rosemary is supposed to have a lot of health benefits and I do use it a lot in cooking, though I’ve never had it in a tea before.
This is a lot better than I thought it would be, the white tea has a nice fruity sweetness which complements the rosemary. There is a definite nuttiness to this, which reminds me of sesame or almond oil. I was worried it would be too “savory” but the rosemary is a bit on the subtle side. I’ll have to remember to drink this the next time I have a cold!
P.S. I really don’t think there’s any Vitamin B12 in rosemary, despite the claims made by Nature’s Tea Leaf.
This was the sample that came in this month’s Lupicia newsletter, I already have this tea so I am quite familiar with it, still reminds me of jolly rancher candies and is a little over the top in terms of flavoring for me. Still fairly enjoyable on this overcast day.
Good morning Steepster – I hope everyone had a nice Valentine’s Day, mine was very romantic and I thought this tea would help motivate me a bit for the work day ahead.
There is a slight bitterness in the finish of this I am not really enjoying, but it could be that my steeping parameters were off. Otherwise it is reminding me of a gunpowder, very vegetal in an artichoke sort of way, earthy, I’m picking up a hint of smoke.
