A new box of tea lavishness from derk arrived today, happy times! It’s too late to indulge in caffeinated tea, but I had to try this tisanne and it doesn’t disappoint.
Before steeping, I dropped the bag into a preheated glass teapot, and the aromas sent me directly to a fir tree forest. Nostalgic, a little sad for the lack of forest around here in Southern Ontario, but also full of beautiful memories.
Once infused, the tea has mostly a citric acidity as one would expect, but it’s got a good sweetness and woodiness supporting it. The balance is pretty good and it drinks well. The aftertaste has some nice vegetal notes and has an interesting throat drying quailty. As far as bagged teas and tisanes go, this is awesome.
