  1. Steepings

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: 5 minutes

Since purchasing of this tea, I have had it nightly it seems. So this evening I am reaching for it again. I steep the tea very hot for five minutes and takes slow sips of the tea. I enjoy the mixture of herbals to be found in the cup: mainly anise, with hints of chamomile and mint leaves.

I have yet to experience anything profound with drinking this tea. It is soothing as I drink it and taste pleasant enough but nothing to say Wow, this is the tea for life, or to had again and again. I will not buy this tea again; not for disliking it, but that I did not find that Wow…this is it. What is the song by Vandross, Searching…?

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: 5 minutes

I am having this tea too relax and not necessarily for indigestion. I place one of the sachets in a cup and add nearly boiling water into the cup and leave to steep for five minutes. After which time, I remove the covering and take in the aroma of the anise and chamomile with mint leaves. It is a lovely fragrant with the anise more pronounce. I take sip after sip of this tea and think of licorice flavor and although I tend to not enjoy licorice this is suiting my palette at this time.

This tea is considered to be a digestive aid as well as to calm and relax. In due time, I hope to experience calmness…that profound calmness that is to be found when all is well.

  1. Steepings

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 190 Fahrenheit
Time: 5 minutes

Note: I place on tea bag in a cup and pour the hot water into the cup and leave the tea to steep for five minutes. This tea smells sweetly of the anise fruit plant and taste sweetly. Tea’s color is light amber, more on the yellow side when held directly under the light. The tea’s aroma is a fruity herbal blending of anise, chamomile and mint leaf all goes to making this a very relaxing cup of tea to soothe one’s indigestion.

This is a bagged tea sent to me by TeaEqualsBliss! Thanks lady! :-)
I was a bit apprehensive to try this one. I have to be in the right mood for an herbal tea. Tonight’s it! I am overtired and have one of those weird headaches where it hurts behind your eyes; if this does help me sleep tonight it would be a plus!
The smell is not very promising. This will be only my second rooibus ever.
It’s not that great. Pretty boring, and tastes like tea bag. Not much lemon flavor. It’s not bad enough to dump down the drain but I’m not going to go searching it out either!

Edit: this is my 100th tasting note! Yay!

Bonnie

Hooray for you reaching 100! Big milestone!!!!

Doesn’t smell like anything
Green tea base is cheap and doesn’t really taste like anything either
the spearmint is VERY VERY subtle
Overall…I feel like I am drinking hot water with a stale spearmint leaf that barely has any flavor left to it.

It’s not gross but there isn’t much of anything there to really comment on.

Another one down the drain.

I have a slew of these to try and they have been staring at me and not in a good way…they have been giving me the hairy-eye-ball…they scare me.

Today I’m putting myself to the test…at least for a few of them.

Bottoms – up!

This smells like Anise (licorice-E) and herbally. I have to say for me personally this gives it a strike already. NOT a very nice aroma.

It’s a green/grey/brown color after steeping – yes – it’s bagged.

The herbally aroma intensifies as the infusion progresses. BLAH

I can taste a peppery-herbally-licorice-E combo of flavors. Luckily it’s not INTENSE. Perhaps the chamomile mellows it…not sure. Had I not read the ingredients – I wouldn’t have even noticed chamomile to be honest. Which is fine because I am not fond of that ingredient, usually. It also says it has mint…can’t really taste it until the aftertaste and then it’s not even very noticeable.

I suppose this could have been raunchy-gross tasting so I’m thankful for mellow flavors here! Could have been worse but it could have been WAY BETTER, too!

Doubt I would drink this again.
