60 Tasting Notes

I normally harbor disdain for rooibos teas (I think they taste too medicinal) but this is the second rooibos that I’ve actually enjoyed! We visit Wegman’s about every 3-4 months, and on our recent visit, the Blood Orange Tisane won for best scent. I’m huffing my bag as we speak… it’s a delightful bouquet of freshly peeled oranges. Very lush and tropical. The tea has lemongrass and rosehips, which gives it a bit of tartness without making you think you’re drinking watered-down orange juice. A winner!

I was pleasantly surprised by the taste of this chai. I was expecting it to be a bag of weakspice, but it was actually quite flavorful! I steeped my bag for about 4 minutes, then added honey pearls. Perfect brew for a cool morning!

Slightly astringent, but refreshing brew. A good tea to try if you’re over sencha but aren’t willing to commit to the pricey matcha.

drank Stomach Ease by Yogi Tea

Blech! I found this in my housemate’s tea stash. It smelled good so I thought it might be good iced. Too heavy on the licorice. My stomach’s feeling fine, so I cannot review its stomach easing properties.

Preparation
Iced

Finally got around to tasting this iced. I used the cold brew method. However, I left the tea to flower in the container too long, so it tasted bitter. The scent is sweet. It reminds me of the peach gummies I sometimes buy at the Asian market.
