From Simpson & Vail

Enjoy this “fresh from the garden” combination of black teas, tarragon and citrus flavoring. The distinctive taste of tarragon is complemented by wonderful citrus notes to produce a bright amber cup that is light and refreshing. This blend is unique, delicious and rapidly becoming a best seller.

Ingredients: Black teas, tarragon and natural flavoring.

Citrus Dragon pairs well with tofu, fish, pork, beef, poultry, game, potatoes, tomatoes, and most vegetables. Try it at teatime with a chicken salad or egg salad sandwich. Perfect!

Brew tea at 212º – steep for 3 minutes.

I originally bought this tea because the ingredients sounded so unusual and interesting to me. Citrus tarragon black tea? Yes, of course I want to try it. Yet it’s sat here for a little bit with me avoiding it for whatever reason. Why?! This is surprisingly delicious.

I get a creamy mouthfeel first, followed by faint (yet definitely present) tarragon. There’s a hint of the black base which is smooth, and then a hint of sweetness that’s vague yet citrus-y. It makes me think of using this tea as brine for cooking something, although frankly I think I may just want to drink it as-is. Definitely a savory tea, and the smell of tarragon is much stronger than the taste – in this case, I think that’s a good thing.

Savory tea lovers, I definitely recommend trying this one out.

1.5 tsp in 12 oz.

You’ve tried the peach and thyme tea, right? Is this along the same line?

It’s comparable, however this is more subtle, more… creamy and mellow, whereas I found Pêche et Thyme a bit more in-your-face and bold.

Interesting! I ordered a bunch of herby teas from Cornelia Bean. Here’s hoping some of them are teas you can try. :)

Mmm I like the sound of that tea.
