4 Tasting Notes
This is my absolute favorite tea but I can’t drink too much of it at a time because the spices irritate my acid reflux something awful. I make it with two tablespoons of Teavana’s rock sugar which I keep in the same can as the tea. The sugar absorbs the flavor of the tea and the tea is sweet and spicy and absolutely delicious by itself or with milk.
I have a sore throat and was craving tea. I just bought this a few days ago and made my first pot today. I use a Cuisinart TEA-100 PerfecTemp Programmable Tea Steeper & Kettle which by the way is the best invention since sliced bread and the easiest way to make tea. I give it 5 stars.
Sorry for rambling, about the tea: I added a teaspoon of honey to my cup while I waited for the tea to finish and then poured the tea in. I cautiously tested the temperature, like most hot beverages it burnt my tongue so I added a little bit maybe 1 oz of cold tap water.
It’s delicious and perfect for a sore throat. I’m a beginner when it comes to tea and I don’t really know how to rate/describe the taste and smell. All I can say is that it smelled like green tea and tasted like green tea and honey.
Also, because my Cuisinart has a two cup minimum I always make 2 cups at a time using ~2tsps and then resteep the leaves if I want more. I usually don’t drink more than 4 cups a day.
