Tea #2 for Oolong Saturday, and sipdown #1.
1) Eleuthero root is not an ingredient on my package. What do I believe, DavidsTea? Your ingredient listings are TERRIBLE. Step up and fix that problem, because I am becoming extremely suspicious of your teas, and that is sad.
2) I hate the name. I’ve had this since January or so, and I haven’t tried it yet because I hate the name. Hate it. I won’t rant about it, but wow there’s a lot bubbling under the surface. And it’s too bad, because even if I really like the tea (orange and ginger! Smells so good!) I’ll never buy it.
3) The tea smells divine. And it apparently just has natural flavours! That’s awesome.
4) Steeped as recommended on the packet, it doesn’t smell as good. Doesn’t taste as good as I hoped, either. Somewhat too earthy, not enough of the orange/ginger/peach smell I was getting from the dry leaves. It’s not terrible, it’s just not what I was expecting from the smell. It’s very orangey, and only a little gingery. As it cools, I’m not-loving-it more. IDK what eleuthero root tastes like, but that might be what isn’t working for me. Oh hey! Googling it tells me it’s like ginseng. So. Dirt.
Yeah, I’m moving on to something else.
