355 Tasting Notes
I’m still feeling like crap, so excuse me while I rant for a second.
Why, in the name of all that is holy, are there ROSEHIPS AND HIBISCUS IN A MINT BLEND??!?!?! This makes me want to smash things. Instead of a nice refreshing mint tea I get a hint of mint followed by that ridiculously awful rosehips/hibiscus/red flavor. UGHHHHHH.
Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for the tin of this!
I didn’t get home til midnight last night, there’s a brand new blanket of a foot of snow on the ground, and I have a sore throat. The thought of black tea, my usual morning cup, made me ill, so I reached for this one for some throat-soothing instead.
I was disappointed, sadly. All I could taste was lemongrass with some chamomile in the background; no spearmint. And it didn’t do much to soothe my throat, either, even with some honey.
I like Foxtrot, the other Adagio chamomile blend, much better.
Wow, this is good. Like, really good. Perfect combo of sweet grassy Sencha and really sweet pineapple. The pineapple isn’t overwhelming but definitely complements the Sencha beautifully. It’s like the sweetness of the Sencha flows right into the sweeter pineapple. I also got a free sample of their Orange Sencha with my order, so I’m curious to see how that compares.
So far I’m really loving Den’s Teas!
