Finally digging into the treasure trove of loose-leaf samples from my Foodzie box from LiberTEAS! I made beef bowls tonight, and they were delicious but very spicy and a little heavy. I was feeling a little blargh-y afterwards and wanted something light and refreshing… and really, what fits that better than eucalyptus? I’ve never had it in a tisane before but when I was young my mom would always mix eucalyptus oil and water on the stove and boil it all day long, so this is a very nostalgic ingredient for me.
This is a light, airy, refreshing blend—a nice mix of citrus and mint, but it’s lively and not at all a sleep-inducing blend which I was a little worried about. There’s a tiny hint of fruit, but not enough to make this a “fruity” tea. It’s got a great balance, and is the perfect tea for following up an over-indulgent dinner. I used to think that I didn’t really like herbal blends, but I think my issue was with mediocre bagged ones—so far, I’ve liked pretty much all of the loose-leaf ones I’ve tried!
