563 Tasting Notes
Steeped for about 2 mins and that was perfect. So good in fact that I forgot to pour the rest of it in my cup. It probably steeped a good minute or two more. Wasn’t enough to ruin it but definitely added a bit more bitterness.
As I’ve let it cool down tue bitterness has somewhat lessened oddly enough. A bit more grassy and some what oaty. Is that a word?
Not sick. Not coming down with anything. At least I don’t think so. But today was kinda crappy so it sounded like a good idea. I’m an off and on fan of Rooibos. Honeybush is much better but some how I get more rooibos then I do honeybush in this…. Surprisingly I’m not tasting as much lemon as I thought I would. Which is good! Lemon can over power and ruin a tea easily. The ginger is also timid but gives a nice little zing.
It’s so nice of Lupicia to send out a free sample with their newsletter. Jasmine tea has always been a favourite of mine. It’s one of the only teas I always put honey into. I feel like it really brings out the jasmine flavor. This tea I’m actually quite impressed with. Y can really taste the mandarin. It does leave a bit of a bitter taste but the jasmine flavor helps with that immensely
