I believe this is last I got from Izzy, so thank you!
I fell in love with Ayurveda Pura tea bags (the outer wrapping for new followers). They are so pretty. I think this one, or some other one? Was the impulse to start a swap with her.
Anyway, I am indeed interested, how saffron will be in tea and cardamom as well. Maybe bland as she said?
Anyway, tea bag; boiling water and 8 pm. And… 330 ml mug.
The brew is cloudy yellow with brown notes. It was quite aromatic, reminds me bit turmeric, but it is actually cinnamon with fennel probably?
After 6 minutes steeping taste is… herbal with hints of spices. Nothing special. Rather kind of watery. Now it is earthy as well.
Overall? It is interesting blend of herbs, but I would buy it again just because of wrapping.
Flavors: Earth, Herbs, Spicy
Got this tea from Izzy. Thank you!
I would not rate “health” benefits, but just taste. It is tasting note afterall.
Brews quite light, yellow-green colour.
Actually, it is not bad. Ginger is not overpowering the citrus elements, so it is there, there is as well some sour notes from lemon, but certaainly orange peels is making it palatable.
This tasting note is super short, as I am awake for 32 hours with only small sleep breaks. I slept maybe two hours all at once. Need sleep, but can not feel asleep with daylight. D’oh
Thank you Izzy for tea bag to sample.
I took this, becasuse it should include green tea and I need something to wake up.
Weirdly I used boiling water (it was even recommended) and results are cloudy, somehow yellow brew with lots of dust.
I can’t smell cinnamon at all. Not even in taste. Ginger, black pepper and Fennel. Where is green tea? Some base is missing. It tastes like brew just from spices. At least it is warming up a bit. But taste is bleh.
Flavors: Fennel, Ginger, Spices
The third tea from this company I’ve tried, I can’t say it’s better or worse than the others as they all taste pretty similar. This was the most pleasant, but also the most bland. The herbs and spices mixed together so well that it was impossible to really give any a name without looking at the label. There’s no dominant flavour to pull through, apart from a little anise-sweetness that I detected in the last few sips.
It does smell good though, it reminds me of samosas. The colour is beautiful thanks to the saffron too.
I’d recommend it if you asked me about trying it… but I definitely wouldn’t bring it up in conversation. It’s really not that good.
Flavors: Anise, Herbs, Spices
I’m wondering if maybe I did something wrong with this tea. It just doesn’t taste good at all. Yet this blend won a Great Taste Award in 2013, with judges saying:
“Lovely delicate liquor. Happy marriage of delicate flavours. Gentle and well blended. An apple note coming through, along with really well-managed flavours.”
I didn’t get any of that at all, it’s very bland and generic. I brewed as recommended and there was no flavour to this tea other than a hint of herb. The black pepper stung my tongue and the ginger actually made my eyes water. There’s no way I’m going to brew this for longer next time – even if the cinnamon, cloves and green tea are finally detectable, I think the pepper and ginger will kill me.
I’m disappointed :( I’ve now reviewed 2 out of the 4 teas from this company. The first was meh, this one was bleh. Really hoping the last 2 will save the day.
My scoring system for teas includes the quality of the ingredients, as it’s important to me that I’m drinking something real, organic or healthy, not artificial. That plus the dry aroma (which was actually alright) and my overall score has been bumped to about 50. The flavour score column is 1/10 though. If there was no flavour at all or it physically made me ill, I’d be giving it 0 for flavour.
I’ll finish the last of these tea bags with an unhealthy dose of honey, or maybe have a go at making a masala chai with them.
Flavors: Black Pepper, Ginger, Herbs
Ok, so I’ve given this tea a mildly good score, as it was certainly had a drinkable flavour and I’m going to finish the pack I have (because I can’t stand throwing away tea or creating waste) but it’s not special. If someone came to me asking to recommend a tea blend that contained fennel and orange, I’d probably help them research and find a new tea rather than recommend this one.
It lacks… something.
The fennel and anise are subtle and balanced but they’re not outstanding. The orange is barely detectable too. It’s a nice flavour that you can drink easily. Like drinking a glass of water, to be honest. So, why spend money on it?
I can definitely say that this herbal tea calmed me, but other than that there’s really nothing to report. I wrote up a longer review, like usual, but by the end I was struggling to think of anything to say. I researched a little into how this tea is used as part of the medical Ayurveda traditions, but that’s not why I purchased the tea, I just thought it sounded like a great flavour combination and the price was low enough that I thought “what the hell, just go for it.”
The main reason for the positive tea score is the quality of ingredients, misleading aroma (it really does smell quite delicious), the calming effects and drink-ability. It’s just missing something to make it stand out.
Of course, it’s just my opinion. I’m hoping someone else will come along and find this tea delightful.
