From Sencha Tea Bar

Like the dance that inspired its name, our Foxtrot is an overnight success that will leave you giddy. It is an herbal cocktail of Egyptian chamomile and South African rooibos with a touch of vanilla and fresh peppermint. A soothing blend of familiar tastes that produces a pleasantly original combination, it’s entirely caffeine-free. You’ll have a spring in your step from the delightful, sophisticated flavor. And as a bonus, it’s naturally high in antioxidants.

GCTTB (Round 6) entry

Loose leaf smells strongly of dried mint, citrusy flowers (chamomile), dry grass or herbs.

Steep 1: Strong scent/flavour of mint at first, followed by a union of mint and mellow chamomile. I absolutely love this combination. Chamomile blossoms give a musty, dried flower petal taste. There is a bit of honey, citrus, and yellow pollen taste from chamomile too. I can’t tell if the mint is a more mild (less manthol) peppermint, or if this is English mint. Either way, well done for not using something with an overpowering menthol flavour.

Steep 2: More of the same, maybe a bit more lemon and chamomile flavour. Chamomile reminds me of summer’s at my father’s property where the barn smells like hot hay on the warmer days. I was allergic to hay/pollen and found this smell to be very alluring. lol

GCTTB DAY 5

Drinking this right before bed, which I don’t normally do, especially considering it’s nearing 11pm, as I know I will have to pee at an obscenely early time in the morning. I needed something to help me relax though, as I am leaving for Slovakia this Saturday and I have an insanely busy week right up until I leave. It has me feeling a tad overwhelmed and definitely more than stressed.

I am enjoying this. It’s a fairly simple blend, with the familiar taste of fresh peppermint and sweet chamomile. I didn’t realize there was any Rooibos in this until I read the description. I don’t seem to taste anything woodsy, but I did assume one of the ingredients was lemongrass, which apparently isn’t. Oh well, it’s a decent bedtime tea. Unfortunately I’m not a fan of peppermint so I can’t love it, but it was mild enough in my brew that I’m enjoying a nice warm cup of this soothing tea to help me relax.

Another one I contributed. I concur, it was just ok.

You know, I really like Sencha Tea Bar, but this one was just ‘meh’ to me, mostly because of the peppermint. But the vendor is actually quite good! I’ve enjoyed most teas you’ve sent me from them. :) Is it an Ontario local vendor?

Had this last night before bed. It’s a really different blend- especially chamomile with rooibos?? The description says: " Egyptian chamomile and South African rooibos with a touch of vanilla and fresh peppermint" and that’s very accurate. I can pick out the tastes one by one: first floral, then woody, a touch of mint, and a touch of sweetness (vanilla?). Altogether this is ok, but I think the rooibos is really unnecessary. I’ll use it up, but Celestial Seasonings’ Honey Vanilla Chamomile is my favorite chamomile tea by far.

How was your getaway?

Kristal

It was lovely in spite of colds (nose running like a facet, yikes). We enjoyed a lot of nice foods and drink, saw a comedian, walked around lovely parks, a got a touch of shopping done, and had a classy hotel. Spent more than we have liked (not entirely our fault) but it was so nice going on a vacation for just the two of us :)

Sounds like a nice way to spend an anniversary despite the colds. Happy belated.

Thank you :)
