About a month ago I ordered a bunch of samples from the Tea Spot. I like their samples because you get 5 servings! That is an opportunity to really sample something, more than one way. Like several others here, I got sick & all my sampling got set aside, pending improved taste & smell abilities. So today, I decided, “It’s on!” I started with a steaming cup of matcha, & next on my agenda was this unusual tea.
Climber’s High is a Heinz 57 type brew, with everything but the kitchen sink included. The predominant aromas are cinnamon & then licorice, but there is way more in this tea, & it’s packed with flavor along the lines of a Chai. It’s also packed with caffeine! I’ve been dragging myself around for a couple of weeks, recuperating, but not really having much energy to get things done, & POW! I drank a cup of this & the next thing I know, I’m smiling, laughing, talking in a very animated way (things I tend to do after consuming a lot of caffeine, the rest of the time I’m pretty laid back), & feeling very dynamic! I re-potted my key lime tree, which is busting out in blossoms as if it were spring. I picked a lime off it & am drinking lime water (gotta stay hydrated!). I added a little new soil to my kumquat & meyer lemon trees – the 7 lemons are almost ready for consumption, the little kumquats have a way to go, but I can tell it’s getting ready to bloom again too! I did a bunch of other stuff too.
I drank the first cup plain & it was nice, the licorice root providing a mild sweetness. I can tell it would be really tasty with stevia as well. I resteeped, & the 2nd cup is just ok, nothing spectacular. I don’t know that I’ll drink this often, but it is tasty, & I’d say it’s a go-to when I need to really get some things done!
