A review of Fennel Tea (caffeine free) by Alvita

Date: 10/13/2012
Company: Alvita
Tea Name: Fennel Seed Tea
Tea Type/Varietal: Herbal
Region:
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: cup/ tea bag
Plucking Season:
Liquor Color: very light brown
Leaf Characteristics: tea bag smells strongly of fennel and makes me think of anise.

  1. Steepings two bags are best used, I did start with one tea bag and had two good steeps and added a second bag for more tea drinking.

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: 3 minutes

Note: I place one tea bag in a cup and add the boiled water into my cup over the tea bag and left to steep for a few minutes. Tea’s aroma is very noticeable sweet and the tea’s color is a very light brown.
I find this Fennel tea to be fragrant and warmly soothing. I am having this cup of tea after being out today and it was colder than I expected since my spirit is low. So it is a cup of herbal to ail my frail mental state.

2nd Steeping:
Water temperature: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: 3 minutes

Note: I am using this same tea bag for a second steeping and after this cup I will add another tea bag and continue as with first cup of tea. It is herbal tea meant to soothe and comfort.

This tea taste similarly to Dill and Anise, if not familiar with Fennel tea; since I was not.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 0 sec

I did not mean to rate this tea so low, It has many uses in that it can be had with other green teas; I tried it with my organic green tea and it added a lovely kick to it. Drinking this tea is like that Dill pickle water in the jar taste. It is nice but not as salty. So give this Fennel Tea a try…if partial to Dill.

I enjoy a lovely cup of tea most days,and I like sharing my tea experiences with the world. I have been doing this for most of two years now.

I am at that thresh hold, unsure of how to proceed and why. My blog page is there for viewing and I am thankful for the experience as I have been allowed. Thank you everyone, sorry to have failed by not writing a tea book. I simply could not do it. I simply could not.
