464 Tasting Notes
I can finally add teas! Woohoo!
So I’m trying this tea because my allergies are a little out of control. I know it’s medicinal, but I enjoy the flavor as well. The peppermint and liquorice clear my nose a little. I’ve always liked the smell of clover and I’m starting to enjoy the nettles flavor.
Hopefully this helps!
I tried this again this morning and I steeped it for a much much shorter time, just about 30 seconds. It was much less seaweed-y. In fact it was grass or like greens maybe even slightly buttery and not bittter at all! It’s amazing what steeping properly does. I also used less leaf. I think I actually enjoy this green now! :-)
I tried this last night before I went to bed. It was ok. I’ve had better peach teas and I’ve had better mango teas. There was a bitter taste that I felt belonged to an un-ripe mango and I would have like a little more peach. I didn’t taste the base, but I wasn’t trying to hard because I was tired.
Now I’ve tried all the teas I got from the two try-me packs from Della Terra Teas. Most of the teas have been just ok. Some of them stood out to me: Cactus Flower, Lemon Pepper Melange, Lime Chiffon, and Jassmint. The rest were pretty average or just not my cup of tea.
This is a lovely floral tea. I find a lot of jasmine teas have a very bitter aftertaste that leaves my mouth dry, but his one only has a touch of that. The mouthfeel iis rich and smooth, only leaving the slightest dryness. The white tea is of course subtle, but has a little bit of a kick to it that prevents it from being bland.
