My husband has the flu. I don’t want to get the flu. So I am hoping this will help me avoid it. (I don’t do flu shots… I avoid shots whenever possible)
This has a much lighter flavor and texture to it than I expected with the hibiscus in it. I think that next time I brew this, I can actually try to go longer than 5 minutes (which is my usual steep time for anything with hibiscus in it). It has a nice lemony flavor in the background, and a berry flavor up front. It doesn’t taste medicinal. It tastes herbal-y, but not medicinal.
Not bad at all… this is certainly better than a flu shot.
I’ve been trying to stick with an IBS-C Diet (sorry if that is TMI for you LOL) but sometimes I stray and then I suffer. Anyhow…thought I would try this tea today and I will say I am very surprised at how tasty it is. I was thinking it would be overly herbal and nothing more…but it’s a pretty tasty cuppa. Oddly, I find the licorice to be a good draw here – I rarely EVER say that because I am not really into licorice teas…but seriously it gives it just enough to be noticed and paired with the other ingredients it works amazingly! I can taste the Chamomile at first but then it changes up to licorice and minty-goodness. And for those who aren’t crazy about mint…it smells more like mint than it tastes. I can see the ginger more than I can smell or taste it but I will say I think it blends well with the other ingredients and contributes to the overall flavor!
This is the surprise of the day, folks, and it was a pleasant one!!!!
I’m having a hard time finding the info for this one but I just got it today…at first glance and sniff I thought to myself…What DOESN’T this blend have in it? It appears to have both red and green Rooibos along with hibiscus and fruit and a few herbs! It’s pretty good! I thought the hibiscus would throw me but because of the green Rooibos it worked well! I prefer it cold but it’s not too shabby hot either.
This is the last of what I have! I might just have to get some more, I really enjoyed it. This seems to have more bergamot than any other Earl Grey I’ve had, it’s strong and citrus-y. Definitely not for people that don’t like citrus or bergamot flavors in their tea. There’s also some lemongrass and those little blue flowers in it that seem to be in most loose leaf Earl Greys I’ve come across.
Bought this on a lark when I was last at my local tea shop. Ahh, the dry leaves smell just like an Andes candy or a Peppermint pattie. So delicious, it makes me want to just try eating it though that would probably be a horrible idea. Let’s see… the liquor is a bit of a sickly brown, sort of like the way my lapsang souchong always looks. Oh, but it smells just like mint chocolate brownies!
So, let’s just take a sip and.. huh? Where’s the flavor? Ah, well… it’s in the aftertaste. Minty, just a little chocolate-y. The liquid itself doesn’t seem to have much going for it though. Sort of… woody tasting. It’s like drinking hot water and then chasing it with a mint chocolate candy. It smells so spectacular but the tea itself doesn’t live up the the expectations it causes by smelling so nice. I don’t think I’ll buy this again, but it was an interesting thing to try out at least.
