558 Tasting Notes
After making this tea 3 times on 3 different days, I am finally able to enjoy a hot cuppa tea.
I am quite impressed by this tea. Up until drinking this, I have not found gingerbread teas to be impressive. This one is sweet, subtlely spicy and even has undertones of molasses.
I never thought I would enjoy a rooibos tea as much as I do enjoy this one.
Thank you to CrowKettle for sending this my way:)
Drinking this as someone recommended it during the last trimester of pregnancy. I like it better steeped at 15 minutes than I do at 10. And actually the one time I forgot about it for longer it tasted better. It has a semblance to a Ceylon black tea, and is an enjoyable cup for me. I will drink this until baby comes (she’s due 10/24!!!) and maybe for cramps and such down the road.
I’m really enjoying sampling the green rooibos teas from Adagio. This is the third flavor I’ve tried now. Only the Green Rooibos Key West is remaining.
This rooibos has a strong floral aroma with a sweet, nectar (think syrup from canned peaches) scent. In taste, i definitely taste a floral and nectar, but can’t pinpoint the flower. I bet this would be nice mixed with a jasmine green, for added floral taste. Although I do like most of my jasmine greens plain.
Brewed this up iced last night to enjoy with lunch today. I was quite surprised at how spicy this was. Granted, there are cardamom pods in this, but I wasn’t expecting it to be as noticable with the lemon and pomegranate flavors. I will certainly have to try this hot next go round as I think it would be more enjoyable for me that way.
