15 Tasting Notes
I love this stuff when I’m not feeling well. It has a sharp-ish taste from the licorice, but I really like it. A warning though, it’s a very strong flavor, so some of my friends use less than a teaspoon for eight ounces of water.
I like the stuff though, makes me feel better, so I’ll take the teaspoon..and maybe more.
Great calm-down tea. Or sick tea, becaue anything makes a nice sick tea..I think.. (Hot water+ variant herbs) + throat = instant healing? Looks good to me.
But back to the tea. Like most chais, I think this would be great with sweetener and maybe some milk (or vanilla soy milk for a real treat of treats). However, it’s great plain, which is how I am drinking it.
It makes my mouth feel clean, and it smells amazing. The mint isn’t overpowering, which is really nice. A lot of green mint teas fall into the trap of attacking the tastebuds with the mint flavor and the mint flavor alone. This tea however, gracefully avoided that, you can taste the mint and the green tea, so yay.
It’s really tangy, and really nice to look at. I drink most my teas unsweetened, but I think this would go well with some natural sugar to help balance out the tangy a tad. This is only a suggestion if you don’t like tangy teas. I personally love it, but next time I’m going to try it sweetened and iced.
