8 Tasting Notes
Interesting…not for the faint of heart (perhaps for the faint of smell, though) Luckily I’m accustomed to the smell of edible seaweed, but it isn’t my favorite aroma. The taste of this tea is fine, not over-powered by the seaweed. I like the idea that it might have some good antioxidant properties (how much? I don’t know, really, but I’m all up for placebo effect too). Loving the cloth teabag!
Delicious vanilla flavour and aroma. The package recommends steeping 4-5 minutes, but I only let it steep about a minute. The teabags are large and can easily accommodate 2 cups at a time (but no re-steeping). I like to use this for making my own vanilla chai – yummy, yummy! Very good served black or with milk, sugar or no sugar, depending on how you feel. Great for a nice wake up in the morning, or as a cold-day comfort tea.
I’ve never had any other magnolia-scented teas, so I’m not sure how to rate this one. I like it, but am not enamored with it. Not like jasmine, anyway. I probably won’t buy it often, but it does in a pinch. I’m having some now with a few drops of lemon in it. The lemon doesn’t detract, but actually compliments.
