1989 tasting notes

This is a pretty delicious Chamana herbal tea as well. I don’t know that I’ve ever had lemon verbena, much less a tisane that is based primarily in it (and I suppose also chamomile), but it is quite lovely. Lemony in a way that is different from lemongrass but I can’t articulate how. The chamomile is very nice in here… Not musty, just slightly appley that works well with the verbena. There is also supposed to be clementine in here which is probably also adding to the entire flavor. I mean, it’s not distinct really but I suppose that the lemon is perhaps a little sweeter and more orangey the more I drink. Almost like a Meyer lemon!

This is a blend I feel like I might be able to recreate, the only kink is the clementine. Perhaps some orange peel could also work. It’s an herbal I really enjoy, and I am definitely on the lookout for those for the evenings.

I love lemon verbena! I grow it in my garden, & I love walking past it, running my hands through it gently, & breathing in its delicious aroma! It’s so uplifting, & also delicious!

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-86: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
85-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
