411 Tasting Notes
I braved the mall today (silly idea with the post-holiday crowds) and stocked up on one of my favorites – their Strawberry Lemonade Herbal tea. I love this tea – very light but very flavorful. And I splurged and got their perfect tea maker, so I’ve been playing with it ever since I got home, making this tea. Bliss…
Ginger is my favorite spice, and so when I saw this in the shop last night, I had to get it, even though I’m trying to move to loose leaf rather than bagged tea. (And two other boxes came home too, but we’ll not speak of that. )
Once I removed the plastic, I was surprised that the the scent was so.. weak. Once brewed, the spice scent still had less ginger than expected, but was definitely better than just the smell of the tea bags.
Flavor-wise, it’s definitely a cookie flavor, and the tea tastes like a mild gingerbread cookie. The ginger doesn’t have a bite to it, and you can taste a few of the other spices.
I am enjoying this tea, but likely won’t buy another box – I prefer my flavors bold, and this is very mellow. But, it’s good, and if you like spice tea and mild gingerbread cookies, this is good stuff!
I picked up this tea because I like fruit teas, and this just looked interesting. The smell is.. off… it’s like blueberry and dirt. Or blueberry and old eggs. Or blueberry and something icky. The flavor is nice, with a slight aftertaste. Not something I’ll buy again, but not something I won’t drink.
