7 Tasting Notes
I was unsure about this tea because I am not a big fan of ginger or ginseng. I heard that the ingredients were good for you if you felt under the weather, so I decided to try it after a coughing fit and a runny nose. I had it warm and steeped it for the minimum time stated on the box and added a bit of honey. It was sooooooo good! I was pleasantly surprised. The ginger and ginseng were not too overpowering and it overall blended well together. :)
I have never tasted Rooibos tea on its own before. So I had no idea what to expect when I made a bottle of this tea. Needless to say I was worried when I first opened the bag. Mostly because it smelled weird and artificial. When brewed, the smell didn’t go away, though it did mellow down a little. Taste wise, not my cup of tea.
This is my favorite tea. It is great steeped hot and also cold brewed. I take it both with sugar and without, but find that the sweetness of the sugar go with the sweet smell of the tea. It feels like I’m eating candy.
Cold brewed this tea presents a refreshing escape from a hot day. The aroma of the tea isn’t as strong when cold brewed but the sweetness is more pronounced. I don’t add sugar when I drink it cold brewed. :)
I’ve tried peppermint teas before and I hated them. But for some reason I decided to try this and I absolutely loved it. It wasn’t too strong and has an actual minty feel after swallowing, like when you drink water after chewing a piece of gum.
This is also wonderful cold brewed and mixed with a black tea. Very refreshing especially on a hot day.
