1812 Tasting Notes
Wow! It has a little burn to it … reviewing in more detail for www.itsallabouttheleaf.com, and my chief observation is that it’s nice to find a medicinal herbal that doesn’t have lemon as its flavor mainstay. May be helpful and handy come cold and flu season.
I think my general aversion to jasmine teas comes from the fact that the only prepared samples I’ve ever tasted are sweetened to the point of hummingbird feeder syrup. This one doesn’t come on nearly as strong and is rather pleasant. Not getting any pomegranate, really, but maybe it’s just toning down the flowery flavor.
Another one for future full review on www.itsallabouttheleaf.com. General first impression: While rolling around possible adjectives for this tea, stout and robust didn’t make the list at all, but there’s still enough character for it to stand up to the “breakfast” category. No milk needed, but a.m. additives don’t weaken its taste or personality.
