570 Tasting Notes
Tasty little feel-good tea. On my never-ending quest for a good headache tea, this one isn’t as powerful as the North African Mint but it would be great when I can’t wake up in the morning. First taste you get the spices, especially the clove and a touch of the cinnamon and peppermint. The aftertaste is light and sweet, the licorice coming out. Definitely doesn’t need sugar or any additions.
This is the tea that made me realise that I like tea. The first and always the best. When my head was pounding and I barely knew my own name, this is the tea that I summoned up from my brain when my wife asked if I wanted a cuppa. The Earl Grey is earthy and rich, with the vanilla adding just that touch of sweetness that keeps it from being bitter. In fact, I think I am going for another resteep. I drink it black, steep for about three minutes.
