Recent Tasting Notes
Late, late night cuppa brewed for a pretty long time with quite a bit of this uber fluffy tisane shoved into a metal strainer. Despite there being several ingredient in this gorgeous blend, the one that came through the most in taste was a smooth, sweet and really refreshing note of crisp wintergreen. God I love wintergreen. It was a really relaxing way to end the evening, to be honest. I felt a bit like all my stress from the day was just melting off with each sip.
Late night cuppa from yesterday that I just left the leaves in directly for so that it could get as intense and potent as possible. It was a pretty thin flavour and mouthfeel even still, but for a blend that it comprised almost entirely of wintergreen and, like, pine needles… Well, it’s to be expected. The taste is great though! Sweet cooling wintergreen and those forest-like pine/spruce flavours that remind me both of being out in nature just in general but also a little bit Christmas. Wintergreen sweetness on the first half of the sip, and the pine/spruce kinda notes on the back half.
This was a holiday gift from my boss and, truly, it was such a thoughtful and well selected tisane. Definitely different than anything else I own, but really showed a solid understanding of the flavours and unique ingredients I love.
It’s a simple blend but with massive visual impact since the leaves and herbs are large and whole as much as possible – also foraged! The taste leans really wintergreen prominent but is supported by all of the forest-y notes of pine that I love and find so unique. The combination of pine and wintergreen is both sweet but cooling and camphorous too – maybe a smidge woody. It reminds me in a brilliant way of Birch Beer or Spruce Beer.
Really loved it!
