drank Løv is Zen by Løv Organic
318 tasting notes

I am trying to like Løv Organic’s teas, but it seems that all of their teas taste quite unconventional… I am not sure if it has anything to do with their organic nature. Though their herbal teas are supposed to be their signature blends, I have not yet tasted one that I really like :( This tea tastes more like a tisane than a rooibos. It’s light-bodied, with an undercurrent of zesty orange, apple and some herbal flavours. No sign of caramel, but it is very sweet indeed. If you like tisane you may find it ok… just not my cup of tea.

Preparation

When I arrived in their shop, I also really wanted to like them.
However most of them were heavily spiced and did not really appeal to me. I bought the only one without a cloying spice scent and am wondering now whether I should throw the remainder of the pack away, as I do not enjoy drinking it.

You guys know Løv Organic is by the same people as Kusmi? Just mentioning it because the Lov tisanes I have had (just a couple) seem very similar to the Kusmi tisanes (And their detox, boost, whatever new teas lines). Not my cup of tea to be honest, though the tins do cause me to try to love those!

Thanks for sharing that Cteresa, I did not know.
It gives me one more reason to doubt my friend’s opinion on Kusmi Detox tea…

Devilish

Yes cteresa I know it’s Kusmi’s sister label! That’s why I try so hard to love it because I am a fan of Kusmi (never tried their tisanes though)… :( and yeah, I am a sucker for packaging…

LaFleurBleue, I totally agree with you – it’s that spiciness that really bothers me. Even their black teas seem to have hints of spice or herbal flavours. Weird…

I am not a fan of Kusmi (though I am of their tins. sucker for packaging as well) so been pretty wary of Lov as well – but if you check the newer Kusmi teas (sweet love, detox, boost) it´s also of the same “philosophy”, often with spices like cinnamon or ginger or liquorice, random flowers, and other things.

Oh really… I have not tasted their newer teas either – their Russian teas are wonderful enough to turn me into their fan! :P After reading your comment, I am glad that the tins for the newer teas aren’t as lovely so I have never thought of buying them!

Bio

A devilish girl who lives up to the post-80s youth stereotype – hedonistic, frivolous and rebellious – except I love traditional afternoon tea rather than a quick caffeine fix at Starbucks.

I make a living off others’ criminal activities. It’s a busy job and I really wish I could retire, so I can become a full-time afternoon tea connoisseur instead. :j

I love any tea that has nice scent, great flavour and lovely packaging. My current top favourite brands are Mariage Freres, Kusmi Tea, Lupicia, T2, and THE O DOR. ;)

Btw, check out my tea-themed board on Pinterest, if you like tea and pretty things!
