237 Tasting Notes
Had this again last night. I’m becoming less unfond of it. I still thing the ginger is overbearing.
The flavor was unexpected. I’m not tasting much fig or honey. It’s mostly licorice-y with some mint. (Tea Forte seems really fond of putting mint into things that don’t have minty-sounding names.)
It really grew on me, though, despite my prejudice against minty teas, and despite not really tasting like the name.
I rebrewed my leaves, and the second round was less minty, but about as licorice-flavored as the first time. That suited me better.
Yay! Chamomile with no mint snuck in! Not really picking up the honey flavor, but the vanilla goes nicely with the chamomile.
Hadn’t had this in ages. I had not remembered the mint in it—that was an unpleasant surprise.
Kind of bland.
