9 Tasting Notes
The directions said steep for 5 minutes, but having read the other reviews, some were saying it needs longer. So, my cuppa brewed for about 8 minutes. It definitely has a very herbal taste to it. I’m definitely going to have to try this one again, but just brew for 5 minutes next time.
The Three Mint Blend is interesting. You typically find peppermint or spearmint teas, or a mix of these two, but I’ve yet to find another tea that adds the field mint into the mix. The flavour of spearmint is particularly strong, but with this tea, it’s subdued enough by the other two mints to be an enjoyable tea. Perfect for a nice cold winter day.
Herbaria has quite the assortment of teas available, so I gave the Marigold Blossom tea a try, and didn’t find it to my liking. It left my throat a bit dry, and the flavour and aroma didn’t really stand out. I suppose as a herbal tea, it can be consumed for the herbal qualities it’s noted for.
This tea has a gentle flavour when served black, and doesn’t become too astringent until the second cup. Served alongside pastries during afternoon tea, this blend of Indian, African and Sri Lankan teas would simply be a part of the scene, but doesn’t stand out as anything extraordinary.
