Got a bag of Cardio from BTVSGal (thank you very much!!) and am pleased to announce that I likes it! Actually I steeped it 5 minutes (it can go a little longer which I will do next time) and I was going nuts (more than usual) in my head trying to figure out what the elusive taste was gurgling in my mouth and down my throat. Slurp! I cook…and I have more herbs and spices than you have tea. Oh yes I do too. I had a hunch and went to my organic coriander seed, took one and chewed on it. Yep…same taste as in this tea. Coriander and a citrus and not much linden but a little. I chewed on a wet hawthorne berry to get the sense of the woodiness that’s in the tea. All in all…a curious little tea that I like. It’s not copy-cat or “I’ve had this beforeish”. AND, no caffeine! I grew 7 kinds of mint last year and dried it. I’m thinking that some pineapple mint might be good in this iced but that thought is only because it’s 66 today. Wed. it’s going to snow so I want this hot and as is. I give a good score for originality at least!
*Had some more of this and realized that I like it more so upped the rating.
Want to protect your heart? Then exercise. Well, and try this tea, too. Because traditional medicine claims that all the roots, herbs, leaves and fruits in it help your heart. They include superstars like hawthorne berries, eleuthero root, linden, ginkgo, nettle leaves and rosehips. That said, we don’t guarantee miracle results – only that it tastes great. Caffeine-free.
