115 Tasting Notes
Been drinking this every morning as I recover during what’s now the 3rd week of the flu/strep. Good flavor and holds up well to long steeps and multiple infusions throughout the day. Helps the throat and settles the tummy. I don’t think there is a ton of variation among straight peppermint teas, but this one is solid.
Something about this didn’t sit right with me. It’s got a lemon flavor, but doesn’t really seem like a real lemon flavor/smell. It’s oddly flat, making it seem fake. I think some of that comes from the earthy, sweetness of the rooibos, but still kinda weird. It feels like it’s sitting between the two different teas that it should be but can’t make up its mind, so it hangs out in the middle not really embracing any flavor.
Pretty nice blend. I’m not getting a ton of tea green/black base blend and actually would have thought it was an tisane had I not looked here. But the sweet fruit is at a good level, nice and tangy but not overly so in an artificial way. It’s got a little more body to it than some of the other really fruity tisanes/7 treasures I’d compare it to.
Very delicious. I get a little floral/sweetness that’s silky smooth on the nose. The liquid is nice and sweet and the smoothness carries through on the tongue. The creamy, milky-ness is really enjoyable. This seems like a really solid milk oolong favoring fewer powerful flavors over several subtle, deeper notes.
Interestingly, I get a little spice at the end of each sip. Not sure what’s going on there but it’s interesting nonetheless.
