Picked this one tonight because I am avoiding caffeine. I think this one has begun to lose its flavor. It is a savory rooibos with a fair amount of bitterness. I don’t remember it being bitter but I could be wrong. I can’t concentrate on the flavors anyway, all I can think about is my poor cat, now gone. She died around 11 am today. At least she didn’t sutter. She would have died of starvation as she had refused to eat. The vet offered to rerun the tests but I didn’t think them wrong. He said her numbers were indicative of kidney failure where the other vet wanted me to spend a fortune I don’t have on specialists. Letting my cat go was one of the most painful things I have ever done.
I brewed this once in an 18oz teapot with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for 5 min.
This is the most unusually named tea I have ever drank. It is supposed to mean peace and harmony in some Native American language. Even though it was not listed as an ingredient on the Discover Teas website I think there is lemongrass in this tea blend along with other herbs. If not it is unusual because it tastes tremendously of lemongrass. I have to say it is a relaxing blend.
I steeped this once in an 18oz teapot with 185 degree water and 3 tsp leaf for 5 min. I would recommend this tea with reservations, many will hate it. It you like relaxing tea with the strong taste of lemon and herbs it may be for you.
This tea is strong, very strong. I steeped it as in the instructions, 3 tsp for a 18 oz pot in boiling water. It is way too strong. Next time I think two tsp and only 3 min steep instead of 5. This is a classic example of a tea company recommending the oversteeping of their tea.
The tea is very bitter as well. It is a compressed black tea but not at all like a puerh, not smooth at all. I can’t give it a very high mark. I will try it again in about a week and steep it less, maybe it will be better.
