So I just used up the last little bit of this tea and my last cup was when I finally realized I might actually have found a way to like this tea. It was a bit acidic for me before, but for some reason I didn’t think to add honey because of the lemony/lemongrass flavour. I thought it would taste weird with sugar, however as it turns out, half a teaspoon of honey is exactly what it needed.

It steeps pale yellow with a touch or pink, however it is actually very flavourful. The mint tastes very medicinal paired with the lemongrass. The chamomile is slightly lemony and floral, and gives it that dried grass sweetness. My main issue with this tea is that the hibiscus is very tart and the other herbs don’t add enough sweetness to balance it.

Flavors: Floral, Herbaceous, Hibiscus, Lemongrass, Medicinal, Mint, Peppermint, Straw, Tart

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
