HOLY Spinach Leaves BATMAN!
So…I’m trying this one for the first time and there are ‘regular’ looking “Shan-Type Leaves” all balled up and ready to be infused…ok…cool…I said to my self. I added the water and walked away. About 4-5 minutes later came back and the leaves are SO HUGE I thought they were going to spread over the top of my IngenuTEA and over the counter and start crawling thru my house by itself! WOWZA! These leaves are OUT OF CONTROL!!!!!
Yeah…they look like Baby Spinach leaves post infusion…so…now that my Twilight Zone Freak-Out Session is over…on to the actual review and tasting notes…
This has a slight vegetal scent leaning more toward the sweeter side of things. It’s a light brownish yellow sitting there in my cup.
It seems to be struggling between earthy and semi-sweet tasting interrupted by a slight pepper taste as well.
This tastes pretty good but I think not only did I over infuse the amount of loose leaf but also a bit long. There isn’t anything wrong with the taste but I am going to infuse less for less next time to see the difference. I guess I had no idea the leaves were going to be THAT huge! LOL
Regardless – I like the way this one tastes and will for sure try it again!
