A sample from Miss B. I’ve only had a couple of tulsi blends, so I was excited to have the opportunity to try another. It’s slightly earthy in taste, which works well with the spiciness of the ginger. The pink peppercorns add an additional edge of heat that lingers at the back of my throat. I can’t taste the orange at all, which makes me a little sad.
This one would be a good sore throat tea. It’s flavourful enough as it is, but I’m not a huge ginger fan so it’s not one I’d drink on a regular basis. I like the pepper, though. It’s rare that I can taste pepper in a tea, and it’s a delight here with the earthiness of the tulsi. A good winter warmer! It’s a shame it’s 30 degrees out today. I feel like I chose an unseasonable day to try this one.
I drank this when I was ill. I try to drink spicy teas when sick so that I am able to detect at least some resemblance of flavour. This was gingery with a hint of pepper. My taste-buds couldn’t detect the orange because I was too ill. I am not rating this though, due to not wanting to be unfair. It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t clear through my congestion.
Flavors: Ginger, Pepper, Tulsi
Normally I’m not all that crazy over tulsi blends but this one is pretty good. The orange and tulsi combination in here reminds me of Butiki’s Tangerine Creamsicle guayusa. There are pink peppercorns in the blend, which initially excited me, but alas, I don’t taste them.
Another cup gone and I’m left with the craving of more tea because this isn’t quite what I wanted. I’ve been working on these smaller amounts I have, either leftover from older orders of mine, or from the parcel I received from the wonderful MissB when she was making up grab bags for anyone interested, so as a result, I’m simply not drinking teas for which I am in the mood.
Thanks for the tulsi, MissB!
this is a great night time tea! it scores low… dunno why….
very refreshing, not snappy enough to be crisp, but i don’t think i want that right before bed. the vanilla makes it very soothing and adds a cream element to the lemon. i actually didn’t finish my mug last night and shoved it in the fridge… it’s great cold guys. it will make a very nice cold steep.
i get a hint of apple, but not the wishy washy kind- ones with substance. very nicely done. i found this by accident at winners for an awesome price. i would totally buy again! (even though it’s a bagged tea!) no hibiscus. no overpowering lemon. nice and balanced =0).
used 2 bags for my 12 oz mug. 6 minute steep wi/ boiling water.
Okay this is the other tea in my backlog from yesterday, and also kind of a sipdown, seeing as I gave the rest of it away (to my partner, but still).
This was the second ever loose leaf tea I bought, after Whittard’s afternoon earl grey, and I thought I should probably use it as it’s getting on a bit now. I remembered it being light and floral, and a little citrusy, and even though it’s technically a black tea it kind of reminded me of a green earl grey a little. This time, it was a lot more earthy and I’m not sure if the taste has changed or my memory of it is wrong… Anyway, I wasn’t too keen on it this time around, it was a bit too astringent and earthy for my taste, and I didn’t want to add milk or sugar so there wasn’t really much I could do about it. There were little to no floral or citrus notes, although they may have been lingering in the background if I wasn’t in such a hurry to swallow it.
I probably would have enjoyed this more if I had been expecting a deep, earthy flavour, but as it is, I ended up giving the rest of my mug to my partner, who luckily loved it (despite him not really being a tea drinker) and he now has the remaining 2/3 of the pouch, which was going to get thrown away otherwise. One I can remove from my cupboard, although I need a light floral Darjeeling to replace it now!
