A review of 100% Organic Rosehip Herb Tea by Garden of the Andes

Date: 11/08/2012
Company: Garden of the Andes
Tea Name: Rosehip Herb Tea
Tea Type/Varietal: Herbal
Region:
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: cup / tea bag
Plucking Season:
Liquor Color: Inviting rose with pinkish hues
Leaf Characteristics:

  1. Steepings

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

Note: I pour boiling water over one tea bag that is in my cup and left to steep for a few minutes. Teas’ aroma is a lovely floral bouquet of hibiscus and rose hip and when I am finally having a sip of this tea I am met with a citrus flavor that is balance of the hibiscus herb plant and of that of the Rosehip fruits.

This tea has no Chamomile but it does have the soothing aspect of a cup of Chamomile tea with lemon. It is most soothing and relaxing as I try to make dinner and await the onslaught of unpleasantness that is in my life right now. I live always at the expense of another; having no control over my emotions; an example is the typing of these words to indicate as much; when there need not be a mentioning.

I am grateful always for that cup of warmth that is to be found in the taking of tea/having tea.

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

Having a safe place to vent is important. I don’t think you’ll find a one of us who hasn’t used a tasting note to unload some frustration.

And..do you know what? I am a hibiscus hater, but the way you describe this is so delicate and inviting, you’ve almost got me convinced to give it another try ;)

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.
