drank Parsley Tea by Seelect
1287 tasting notes

Wow. How refreshing!! I really need to try this iced. My first cup, I made hot as is usual for me, and it was oh so very satisfying. However in the summer, I think this will be a mainstay to keep me hydrated.
It tastes JUST like parsley, without any of that annoying roughness on the tongue that turns me off. Funny, I always thought I disliked the darn plant, but I just realized today that it’s the texture I abhore, not the taste! DUH!
It’s vegetal like, with a hint of pepper on the swallow and a general background of that “fresh water” note I get in tea sometimes. Kindof sweet tasting, but not really- almost the opposite of astringency. Okay I am not doing a very good job of explaining myself! Does anyone know what I mean?
Oh and the packaging says to add sugar or honey (if desired) but I really don’t see that happening except for maybe on a whim. It’s just great on it’s own!
My only regret is that it’s bagged. Ahhh!! that’s right, IndigoBloom needs to be put in the corner. She said a bad word :/

You like being a bad girl don’t you?!

Kittenna

Ehhh, parsley tea?! Does not appeal to me…

Indigobloom

LOL what can I say… it’s good to be bad :P

Kristaleyn, I wouldn’t think of trying it myself…except it’s supposed to have some cleansing properties that do wonders :)

Indestructible

My first reaction to parsley tea was – yuck – but you are making it sound good!

Indigobloom

I can send you a sample if you’d like :)

Kittenna

For a sec I thought that was directed at me, and I was all ‘nooooooo thanks!’ Haha. I mean, I’d try a sip if offered, and I like parsley in dips/salady things, but tea???
Although if it truly has some excellent cleansing properties, I could probably drink it for that reason.

Indigobloom

ha, sorry I thought I had specified Indestrucible!
I had the same reaction as you Kristaleyn… but it’s surprisingly yummy

Kittenna

Oh! You totally did, I just missed the in-between message when reading from my emails :D Totally clear once I got here :P

Indigobloom

ah!
I turned those off, so I always forget that other people get them haha

Indestructible

Profile

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
