I found this “tea” at a health foods store in Louisville, Ky. I was looking for something different, and can you get much different than drinking a tea made from fir trees?
There are no brewing suggestions on the box, nor on the company’s website. So I tried it out for 5 minutes with boiling water.
Have you ever had a real, live Christmas tree in your home? This tea smells just like a Christmas tree, but with a little lemony edge.
The taste is very earthy, deeper and thicker than a nutty green tea; you can definitely taste the tree. There’s also a taste similar to lemon verbena.
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised at how good this tea is. I don’t know if it will become one of my staples, but it won’t be sitting in the cabinet forever, either.
