From my second last tasting note, you’d know that I have appalling habits when it comes to how I steep my teas. Not so for this tea. I followed their instructions (warmed teapot, boiling water, 10 minutes) to the letter. And I am glad I did so.
I cannot conceive how cardamon and rosemary can work so well together in a tisane. This tea is tangy, a little bit spicy, and so fragrant and refreshing. I did think that the name “Happiness Tea” verged on hyperbole but I take that back, and now I am just impatient to try the other teas (with a name like “Inspiration Tea”, how can it go wrong?) from Tea & Philosophy. They even have an adorable URL: http://todaywasfun.com/
I must confess that I have a weakness for hibiscus teas because of the intense colour, and this has become my new favourite in a big way. Sorry about that, Tazo Passion.
