This is the first tea from Supple Skin Boutique that I’ve tried. I was drawn in by the name (I love a nice lemony tea), and I figured that it’s liver-detoxing properties couldn’t hurt after college.
I’m a bit disappointed with how little lemon I taste. It’s a very solid black tea, and I do like that, but I’m barely picking up on any of the lemon. For a lemonade tea, I find it lacking. I will keep trying it though, and maybe I’ll warm up to it more.
I seriously thought I tried and logged this one already but maybe I didn’t. Since I am getting a little daring today I thought I would have a cup and near-cold-brew it.
Smells like Fruit, Feet, Pine, Herbs, Licorice, and Burdock.
Perhaps THIS is why I didn’t log this…eeeek! The Burdock and Licorice really throw me! Bleh! The Hibiscus just confuses this even more. The cinnamon is artificial tasting, and I can’t taste the green tea at all.
I have enjoyed teas and tisanes from Supple Skin Boutique but I’m sorry this is NOT one of them!
Ah… that’s much better! I lowered the steeping temperature to 160 degrees F, and increased the brew time to 3.5 minutes. This tastes so much better than the last cup I had of this.
Sweet, a little grassy, hints of savory, hints of raw spice. It’s crisp and it has a hint of woodsy taste to it, and a fruity character that slowly builds.
The difference between my first cup and this one is like night and day.
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea.
This has a strong grassy quality to it. I think I might try to lower the temperature while increasing the steep time slightly to see what I might discover … as it is, I am enjoying it for what it is. It has a strong earthy quality to it, but it is also a little on the thin side, and I was expecting more heartiness. So, maybe the adjustment might help.
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this rooibos.
I’m not a big fan of plain rooibos, but, this one is not bad. I like it because it’s organic, and as I have said, there is a difference in taste between the organic and the conventionally grown rooibos. The organic rooibos has less of that funky sweet aftertaste, and tends to be smoother. This has an agreeable nutty overtone, with hints of a woody undertone.
It’s a pleasant tisane, nice for later in the evening when I want less caffeine.
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tisane!
I love my chocolate. I brewed this in my Libre mug so that I could keep the cacao nibs in the cup as I sipped… allowing the cocoa flavor to develop. YUM! The flavor is rich and chocolate-y. It is a bittersweet kind of chocolate flavor – very pure and unprocessed. And… very yummy.
I’m drinking pure cacao nibs…what are you drinking!?
When I got this from Supple Skin Boutique I was puzzled as I have never drank them straight-up/stand alone. I have been eye balling them tho because the aroma is heavenly!
I thought I would jump and this morning and try them out! I was amazed at how light these infused…it’s a pale/light yellow with a bit of texture to it. I went with the 4-5 minute infusion method…it suggests up to 5. After infusing it still smells like chocolate – not nearly as intense as prior to steeping but still there…there is a cookie-like hint of a smell underneath, too, and I like that!
If one was going to experiment and do their own blends this would be perfect to add in the mix! It’s so pure! Raw! In the more simple, organic form!
As for the taste…it’s more subtle than I thought it would be based on the aroma when I first opened the bag! It’s a little brothy…which was a surprise…but it tastes yummy! There is a hint of sweetness trying to hide but there is a wonderful darker-cocoa taste that also seems to have a slight woodsiness to it, too.
It is pretty darn creamy, too, I might add.
So…grimace! Laugh if you will…I’m drinking PURE Cacao Nibs and I am liking it! Bwahahahaha!
OMG! So…2 things I was unsure of…one…did you know that LEMONGRASS can help dogs bark less? And…two…I wasn’t sure what song to pair with this one so I went with LEMON by U2 just for kicks!
My Lemongrass doesn’t really look like this…so I hope I have the right one…this is the only one I found on their website. Mine looks like a pale-tannish-yellow color and has lemongrass but also what looks like root and powder in the mix!
It really didn’t have an aroma prior to infusing but afterwards…it was pleasant but not over the top! It infuses to a VERY clear and clean pale almost completely clear color/liquid. It’s a very gentle lemongrass and a gentle herb type taste. This isn’t too bad! I think it would make a nice base for blending! It does leave a refreshing aftertaste, too!
Okay…so I had to google Shatavari – basically – it’s Asparagus!
This is a nice, direct and to the point chai with the addition of Shatavari AKA Asparagus!
I would classify this as a medium strength Chai…both in black tea strength and in spice strength. It’s nice!
I can taste a lemon/orange type citrus hint as well…eventho I do not see citrus in the list of ingredients!
I really like this especially after sitting at room temp for a few minutes! YUM!
Unique! Leaves a sweeter-than-I expected aftertaste! Ah!
