The aroma of the tea bag waiting in the cup while the water heats beckons what one might think is a refreshing cup. The tea actually more closely approximates a citrusy cold medicine, which is actually how I prefer to use it, to ward off illness.
30 Tasting Notes
Very pleasant tasting chamomile tea that could be drunk at any time, but certainly works before bed. It has that rose note in common in many of Zhena’s teas.
This was a very relaxing combination, with the rose very discernible. I found it almost as nice as loose rose petals.
I also cannot taste the raspberry note in this tea. The Earl Grey combined notes come through just fine without being overpowering, but the headliner for this tea is missing. I wouldn’t buy it again, but not a bad addition to the sampler of Zhena’s Teas it came in.
I like this little chocolatey tea. It’s very nice with milk, especially if you heat or froth that too, and best to just let it steep. There has to be a fraction of the calories in a cup of hot chocolate, but gives you a very close feeling of being as indulgent.
It certainly does have whole tomato pieces, and while the brew isn’t as luscious as the box picture suggests, it does make a slightly spicy tea. The problem is that it has little flavor otherwise. I normally take my black tea with milk and sugar, and this tea makes that experience more like a supercheap cup of tomato soup. I won’t buy it again, but it wasn’t bad to try at $1.99 at Grocery Outlet.
