March Sipdown Prompt – an evening tea

This is the final tea from a surprise gift from Martin! We have been avoiding caffeine after 3 pm each day, so Martin sent a selection of caffeine free blends a few months ago for us to enjoy.

This one is called Basil and Lemon but it tastes like lemon and lemongrass. Any basil is pretty muted right now. There are no ingredients listed so I don’t know for sure if there is lemongrass or lemon balm or what giving it the lemon flavor. It does not have the oily “Lemon Pledge” affect that Ashman dislikes so much from lemongrass. I find it light and easy to drink tonight, very enjoyable as I settle in for one last chapter of my book. I am drinking it plain but I think it would be excellent with honey if you like to sweeten your tisanes.

Thank you, Martin, for letting us experience all those different teas that we would not have been able to try otherwise!

Edited to add: moved to appropriate listing

Martin – I loved the review but can’t delete the old listing. I changed the name and listed it as a duplicate. Maybe a moderator can delete it now since I have removed my note.

I liked this one!

I meant I moved the review to the correct place! Just now saw my typo.

Is there anything better than a box of tea treats waiting for you at the end of a long day? Even better when they’re from a tea friend; thank you, Martin!

This was the first packet I broke into. The basil/lime combination is sweet and refreshing, and the combination of citrus peels and flavoring pumps up the flavor without a bit of painful tartness. The total combination smells like the tomato plants in our little container garden after a good rainfall! Fragrance is a fitting name.

I’ve got a second steep recycling in the fridge overnight. Garnished with a little fresh basil pinched from our plants, this should be equally refreshing on ice.

How nice!

Yay! Happy that you liked it. It’s one of the strangest flavour mixes I ever had, but I really like it!

Although my tea bag wrappers collection is rather on hold and I drink way more loose-leaf tea instead of tea bags; the collector inside me always wakes up when I am going through tea counters in the shops. No exception, and even stronger urge to buy something; when I am abroad. Yes, I have bought 3 boxes of tea while I was in Romania at the turn of the year.

I bought them just because tea bags. They were quite expensive, in comparison to other teas there; like 3 times more, but they were labeled as “NEW” and I told to myself why shouldn’t I?

When I returned back to train, I was checking the flavours. All are herbals or with rooibos.
This one I have opened first and when you know no Romanian, you have to hope that translator services do they work well.

But why to call tea “A Fragance”? What is it with? Basil + Lime? Like what? The box is so aromatic after citrus fruits.

When brewed, well, it is like that. It is quite earthy indeed, but citrus notes are making it light again. Some tea bags were realy juicy and lovely. Some were more earthy. You can steep this tea anywhere between 3-10 minutes.
Sadly, I do not notice any cloves nor rooibos (which can be considered as a pro in pros and cons list). I still have some and I may add some to the TTB if interested.

Ooh…basil and lime…I’m making a note to try that this summer with homegrown sweet basil! We’re about three weeks away from safely planting anything in our container garden.
