I am partial to a good black tea and to have such a beautiful experience drinking this ancient tea with classmates and my generous Professor, I could not have expected more. This tea was great as a rich or light brew but I prefer the richness of a dark brew and the bold, bright caramel flavors this tea brought to my cup.
Flavors: Bergamot, Brown Sugar, Honey, Malt, Smooth
I thought I wouldn’t like this. But, it’s grown on me. It doesn’t taste as strong as expected. It’s subtle. It tastes nutty, and piney. It has a herbaceous, earthy, plant like flavor. A spicy flavor. The liquor is light, almost white with a hint of brown. The leaves are whole, and light green in color. They are still connected to the branch. I use the branches as well. Sage is supposed to have health benefits. Memory improvement, skin, hair, nails, blood, heart etc…
I made a full review on how to make this tea along with another tune sharing as well. I also made a facebook page as well check them all out!
So I made some off this tonight. Man I am so glad that I am getting some cold nights now. It is just annoying for it to be 80F in February.
I added an extra clove and for interest, I added a dash of almond milk….. HOW HAVE I NOT DONE THIS BEFORE. It is more creamy and sweet now. I am definitely making another big mug of this.
Ok so after drinking plain chamomile tea for a while, which I really like, I wanted to add stuff to it. I was kinda wanting to add a spice note while playing up the floral taste.
I decided to put my usual 4-5 tsp of chamomile in my 8oz teapot; I make it concentrate so i fill up the rest of the 8 ounces in my big 16oz cup with hot water. Then I put in one whole clove and half a small stick of cinnamon in, put boiling water in the pot and brewed for 10 minuets. After that I strained it into my cup and added 1-2 tsp of light agave.
I loved it! The clove really adds a nice vaporous floral flavor to accent the creamy fruity floral chamomile, while the cinnamon adds a nice sweet spicy tingle. This is easily becoming my night cape…. or was till I ran out of chamomile. I need to get some more soon.
