3 Tasting Notes
There’s nothing remarkable about this tea, really, but it’s still nice. I leave it at work to perk me up throughout the day. If you tend to get nauseous while drinking green tea, the mint will be nice and soothing on you tummy. It’s worth buying, but not something that leaves a huge impression either way.
This is one of the better super market organic teas I’ve come across. The brewing is really touchy, and I think I prefer using less than a tablespoon of leaves. Do not, and I repeat, do not over-steep this tea; the bergamot will overtake most of the tea’s flavor and give you a wicked devil’s brew. I’ve gotten heartburn from it before. If you’re not pleased with the flavor, I recommend toying around with your brewing strategies.
This tea is great as a sleep or anxiety aid, however, the taste is really undesirable. I think it’d be alright sans the stevia, which leaves a nasty coating in your mouth and an overly sweet aftertaste. I’d even go as taking the cinnamon and raspberry out. It seems that all the flavors together are an overkill. I don’t know if it was a means to cover up the taste of some of the herbs, but it would have been better a bit simpler. Overall, a few bucks for the medicinal qualities of this tea is well worth it, but don’t expect to enjoy the flavor.
