126/365

I bought this one in January last year, and it’s sat in my cupboard ever since. I think that’s largely because it’s such an odd duck, I mean…a tea that tastes like meadow? This was released as the first tea in Bluebird’s Herbfield Series, which presumably never got off the ground since I’ve heard nothing more about it since. In any case, it’s a blend of UK grown herbs – rosemary, vervain, and feverfew, with some marigold petals thrown in for good measure.

It looks like the dried herb mixes you might find in the supermarket, but the scent is more appealing than I expected. It’s like freshly cut grass on a warm day; soft, mellow, and soothing. It conjures up warmth, to me, which is especially welcome on a bitter winter day like today. It’s summer captured in a scent.

To taste, it’s not quite so pleasant. The rosemary is very strong, and there’s a powerfully bitter aftertaste. It’s definitely a savoury tea, no question. After the initial hit of rosemary wears off, it tastes, basically, like grass – very green with a lot of chlorophyll. I’m not quite sure what Bluebird were thinking when they blended this, which perhaps accounts for the fact that no more followed. It’s unpleasant almost in the extreme as a drink, although I could sniff the leaves all day and feel quite happy. Perhaps I’ll use it as an odd kind of potpourri, because I definitely won’t be drinking it…

I wonder whether adding this to camomile would help? Only if you like camomile, of course.

I’m not a massive chamomile fan, although I can imagine it would add some much-needed sweetness to this blend.
