A sipdown! (M: 10, Y: 18) Prompt: A tea swap tea or gifted tea — a tea from my Swiss friend gifted for my birthday.

A little bit ironic indeed; as it is quite late for me (10 pm) and not a morning.

This tea also contains crimson beebalm (Monarda didyma), which should have flavour similar to bergamot. Let’s see. Anyway, steeped for 5 minutes in 300 ml mug.

Well, it tastes like one of many herbals I already have, but it is indeed interesting it is a bit citrusy (not sure about bergamot) though it doesn’t contain common lemon balm with similar flavour. It is also a bit rough and bitter, but that could be because 5 minutes steep (though it’ss recommended). Also it tastes a bit hoppy to me, but no hops in.

205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec 10 OZ / 300 ML

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
