Confounded blood pressure. Had to do an unwelcome run to urgent care for a nasty ear infection last week and got spoken to very crisply about the need for follow up with my regular doc. (Yes, I listened. Yes, I have an appointment scheduled.)
In the meantime, I understand that hibiscus is a good natural catalyst for BP reduction. That’d be great, if I liked hibiscus. So if I’m going to imbibe it, I’ll have to disguise it.
I tried a cup of this fruity stuff last night—another Tuesday Morning impulse grab—and it wasn’t bad. More raspberry than strawberry, still more tart than I prefer, but not so much that it makes your eyebrows sweat. It’s finally warming up to ice tea weather—I have learned that hibiscus is a little mellower when you cold steep it, so we may give that a go as well.
Succumbed to temptation (“no-tea-till-the-weather-changes” ban forgotten) when I found this at our local Tuesday Morning store (a.k.a. the place where I never go to buy anything I need, but always walk out with my hands full anyway).
Due to its sweetness, this would be suitable for a party tea with my new crop of fifth grade girls, but it has some grown-up merit, too. It’s a rooibos blend with fruits that aren’t tart, the honey feels thick and satiny, and the hints of ginger show up at the end of each sip, just warming your tongue a bit.
For Christmas I got some tea from my parents and this was one of them, I think my mum went to a Polish supermarket to get some of them which I never thought of doing.
Flavour is very mild despite being such a dark red colour. It’s dry with a gentle, sweet yet sour hibiscus and spicy after taste. I suppose it does taste like mulled wine in a way, though it’s too mild. If it was any stronger the hibiscus flavour would be too thick.
I’m not sure with this one, it’s very non offensive since it’s so mild but the fact that it is mild means I can’t taste much overall. I can drink it which is something, so it’s at least average.
A bit bitter, but it’s a very old teabag. I added a touch of agave, as it seemed appropriate. I don’t really know what quince tastes like, muchless opuncia… I am basically just drinking this to de-cupboard it.
99 baggies/boxes/tins of tea on the wall, 99 containers of tea. Take one down, pass it around…
gifted to me by a kind friend who knows i like different varieties of tea, this tea is surprisingly delicious, uplifting with a hint of spice. mirabelle is apparently a small yellow plum. the tea comes from Poland. it’s probably one of the nicest, more complex fruit teas that i’ve ever had. i’d like to take this taste & wrap it in chocolate.
The tea brews to the colour of slightly aged oak furniture. It smells lightly citrusy. A fairly light tea that is pleasantly drinkable, but seems to lack the deep, malty, biscuity tones I associate with assam. Instead it has bright fruity notes without a great deal of astringency. More of an afternoon tea than a morning tea. Resteeps well.
