630 Tasting Notes
An oldie but a goodie, especially because I’m recovering from a very persistent cold.
Dry leaf is pleasingly chunky and resembles craisins.
Steeps a nice red color.
Notes of currant in the liquor’s scent.
Pleasantly sour on the sip, smooth, tart, fruity.
Flavors: Black Currant, Cranberry, Fruity, Pleasantly Sour, Rooibos, Tart
First day back at work after a head cold. Still recovering. Feel lightheaded and congested. Dry office air is exacerbating sinus irritation and coughing.
Planning to down copious amounts of these Immunity teas; my timing on ordering this dry flight sampler pack of them could not have been more perfect.
This is the perfect citrusy, juicy, anti-inflammatory, Vitamin-C loaded brew.
Down the hatch!
Best bagged tea for coating the throat, hands-down.
Tastes mostly of licorice, cherry, and cinnamon (read: very cough-syrup-y), but it’s tolerable if you add honey.
Temporarily alleviates that awful tickly throat feeling at the beginnings and endings of head colds. I swear it also helped with my cough.
Benefits only apply during consumption of the cuppa. Once the tea is gone, it seems to have no residual benefits.
Flavors: Cherry, Cinnamon, Herbs, Licorice, Medicinal, Sweet
Nasty head cold, been sick for 4, going on 5 days now.
This tastes terrible unless you add liberal amounts of honey.
The first time I made it, it tasted like full-on onions. No idea what happened there.
The other few times I made it, it tasted like herbal, medicinal mush.
What else would you expect though?
I dunno how well it works either, besides providing the same benefits that any hot tea beverage does when one is sick.
Overall, not worth the investment.
Flavors: Herbs, Medicinal
Large chunks of dried fruit and flower petals comprise the dry leaf.
Steeps a cheerful yellow-orange color, like an egg yolk.
Perfume on the liquor is very fruity, almost candy-like.
Tastes mostly of oranges and mango— very juicy and sweet.
Flavors: Candy, Mango, Orange, Sweet
Dry leaf is comprised of pleasingly large chunks of dried fruit, pieces of fruit peel, and hibiscus. Very pretty!
Steeps a gorgeous orange-red color.
Smells pleasantly fruity and crisp, as one would expect from citrus.
Liquor is sweet and sour— reminiscent of orange juice.
Tastes mostly of oranges.
Feels very… healthy going down. I can tell that this is loaded with vitamins and minerals and will kick any cold’s butt.
Flavors: Citrus, Citrus Fruits, Citrus Zest, Citrusy, Hibiscus, Orange, Orange Zest, Pleasantly Sour, Sweet
The trick with this one is to drink it when it’s extremely cooled-down. The flavor really develops as the water temp lowers.
Steeps a muddy pinkish red color.
An oily flim forms on top of the liquor.
If you sip it while it’s still hot, it tastes like water with a twinge of hibiscus tartness.
Once it cools, it tastes of raspberry tartness, fruity, and not super chocolatey, which is surprising because there are huge chunks of chocolate in the dry leaf.
It has an oily, thick mouthfeel.
Not my favorite thing in the world as a hot beverage. But it would definitely be good as an iced tea.
Flavors: Berries, Chocolate, Hibiscus, Raspberry, Sour, Sweet, Tart, Thick
