drank Holy Basil Spa Blend by Verdant Tea
871 tasting notes

Another tea-food review.

I made vegetable soup with a chicken broth base. In addition to black pepper and garlic, I added a tsp of this for seasoning. It was mostly for the basil, but the peppermint, ginger, and fennel work really well too. It give the tea a slightly sweet but salty flavour. I was worried about the peppermint but it works really well. I didn’t have to add any bouillon for extra taste.

Since my tea cupboard is overflowing, this one just might have to move to the spice shelf.

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
