Recent Tasting Notes

I grabbed this teabag out of the TTB before sending it on, so calling this a sipdown when I’ve only got the one bag and have had it for so short a period of time feels like a stretch, but I’m doing it anyway. This tea tastes so much like clover sprouts that it’s almost disorienting. Like drinking salad. But it’s pleasant! I like that it’s different and a little spring-y fresh without being particularly sweet.

Thanks for this AJRimmer! This is from AJRimmer a while ago… or possibly a teabox? Two different teabags from both? Apparently red clover is for skin health which really couldn’t hurt me… tastewise, it tastes a bit like chrysanthemum though not quite as pickley… I’d prefer this to the more pickley chrysanthemum but it also isn’t the most interesting tasting herbal out there…

AJRimmer

I don’t remember this one, so it may be from a tea box?

tea-sipper

haha, probably! Though I’m usually good at remembering where even a single tea bag is from, but yes, this is probably from a teabox if you don’t remember it. :D

Very valerian! Faces were made. The empty mug w/ teabag plastered to the inside was exited from bedroom to kitchen before falling asleep. Valerian+licorice root is not the smell I want to greet me upon waking. I don’t think this did the job last night. Very restless.

Flavors: Caraway, Earthy, Herbaceous, Licorice Root, Mint, Musty, Sweet, Tangy

Valerian works very well for me, but ooooof, why it gotta stink SO BAD? Has to be a very magical blend to hide that aroma…

Yeah, I know I’ve had a blend that defied the Law of Valerian but don’t remember which one it was. Usually smells so dank all one can do is CHUG-IT.

Not drinking for supposed digestive benefit.

A balanced blend that showcases the three herbal components: peppermint, spearmint and lemon balm.

I did some cursory reading of journal papers. Bacillus coagulans, the bacteria added to this herbal blend, has been shown to withstand higher food and beverage processing temperatures than other probiotic bacteria.

Boiling water does decrease bacterial vitality.

Freshly boiled water is what Traditional Medicinals recommends for steeping, with their usual “covered for 10-15 minutes” instructions. If I were to drink this herbal tea for probiotic effects, I’d probably brew it lower, like 175F.

I do like their straight-up peppermint…this sounds tasty, too.

derk

Yeah, not bad at all :)
