The Tea Haus honestly has so many teas at such reasonable prices; however, this one caught my eye while I was looking through their herbal tea blends. I believe jiao gu lan is supposed to be good for controlling blood sugar levels? But I honestly do not know.
I mostly bought this because it seemed like an interesting new herbal blend to try! :)
I did not expect the leaves to expand as much as they did while I made this, since they looked brittle and dry?! However, when they touch boiling water, the leaves expanded a lot – almost like an oolong.
As far as taste goes, it reminds me so much of stevia. Like a slightly herbal, bitter, sweet stevia?
I am not sure I will purchase more of this! :) But it was fun to try!
