6 Tasting Notes
Organic never tasted so good: This black tea, an Oothu from India, blends ginseng in seamlessly and almost drinks like a glass of wine. The vanilla softens and warms the overall flavor, while the mint freshens and the ginger appears only at the end, leaving a subtle, lasting impression of spice on the palette. Assertive yet comforting, it weds well with milk, sugar and honey in particular.
Mango and Calendula join this Oothu from India to create a strong, fragrant drink that can be enjoyed hot as well as iced – basically, a great kick in the butt for lazy days in any season.
As a hot indulgence, try a splash of milk and/or a couple drops of honey or brown sugar – you’ll find this will bring out a whole different character to the tea.
Organically Delicious: This green Jasmine tea from China is blended with an apple flavor, giving it a fresh, sweet taste undercut by just a trace of toasted caramel. Whereas milk is definitely not advised, sugar and honey are optional on this one as it’s already naturally sweet. While it has less caffeine than its black sister, it contains just enough to get a nice spat of chat rolling.
Organic never tasted better: This refreshingly delicate, white Bai Mu Dan China offers fragrant hints of pear, lavender, chamomile, and rosemary. While too subtle for milk, a touch of honey or sugar can make it a delightful stand-alone or an appropriate paring for light fare. Its soothing qualities and low caffeine content combine to brew up a nice, warm cup of relaxation.
