7 Tasting Notes
Oh, this tea. Everything about this tea is pure love.
The chamomile and the spearmint are so well combined and balanced, with just a tiny hint of lemongrass. This one is tea you can serve to one of those “I hate tea, I only drink coffee” people and they WILL like it.
Flavors: Lemongrass, Spearmint
Got myself the Brazilian version of this one.
This tea had basically everything to woo me and make me fall head over heels for it. Turns out, black tea and four red fruits don’t really cut it for me. It smells delicious and the color is amazing (artificial, I imagine, which I don’t really like). I only tasted this one twice. So many people like this one! I want to like it too. Maybe I’ll try it again later this week.
Pretty common, off-the-market-shelf tea. Lovely scented, cute packaging. Tastes quite a bit like actual ginger tea, but the lemon is a bit too bitter depending on the steeping time. If you’ve got a sore throat, mix this baby up with honey and you’re well on your way to getting your voice back.
Flavors: Ginger, Lemon Zest
Softly perfumed, light golden and palate cleansing. I suspect this one is slightly caffeinated but I’m not sure since it doesn’t say so in the packaging. I’ve never had jasmine tea before and this was a good choice. I brewed without covering and I noticed it started to go bitter after it cooled down quite a bit, past 5 minutes in infusion. Its a good, fast brew but also fast to get bitter.
The only interesting thing about this is the color, a beautiful ruby tone which most probably came from an unsuspecting poor beetle in the Amazon. It’s weird tasting, too sour, with no specific scent or flavor at all. Hated it.
