Decided to brew this tea from derk, thank you!
And as I am curious person by nature I turned on VPN for my university and looked to the databases.
“The decoction of dried fruits of Ternstroemia pringlei (Rose) Standl. (Theaceae), commonly known as “Flor de Tila”, is used in the Mexican traditional medicine to diminish insomnia and fear.” (https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jep.2008.05.035, I have whole article available)
Enough of science, now to find out my own thoughts. I let it steep all time long, as there aren’t any steeping parameters. So, it could be around 25 minutes steep.
It brews lightly pink/red and thus certainly not similar to any Linden (Tilia sp.) tea! Tastes slightly berry like and quite pretty much nothing else. Quite drying aftertaste, I needed a gulp of fresh water afterwards.
Good to know it’s kosher, haha! I would rate after drinking the second bag.
Flavors: Berry, Drying
