A review of Cleansing Tea by Sweetgrass Herbals

Company: Sweetgrass Herbals
Tea Name: Cleansing Tea
Tea Type/Varietal: Herbals
Region: USA
Steeping Vessel/Amt Leaf: cup/ loose leaf
Liquor Color: light brown
Leaf Characteristic: ferns look like tiny little pods, worms like and small flower like bunches.


1st Steeping:
Water Temp: 160 Fahrenheit
Time: 15 minutes

I used freshly boiled water that sat around until cool/mildly warm. I put one heaping tea spoon in my cup and adding the water. I leave it steeping in my bottle for 15 minutes. Tea’s color is very mild brown coloring. Tea’s aroma is that of the clover herbs and sweetfern. There is a mild sweetness to the tea when I taste of it.

I think seeing the tea in my bottle with the buds and small pod like worms open up was more scary than anything else and once I remove the top from my tea bottle and scoop out the pods and floral, I found that I could enjoy sipping of the tea which was not bitter at all.

Overall tasting notes: tea is very mildly sweet and not at all bitter as depicted in write up. This may be due to the fact that I used boiling water left to cool slightly then just using room temperature water. I did steep it for 15 minutes, then longer for 20 minutes and each time the coloring was slightly brown…

Cup’s characteristic: a floral tea with the buds blossoming as the tea steeps

Liquor color: light brown

Taste: pleasant taste, not at all bitter as mentioned on detail sheet

165 °F / 73 °C 8 min or more

I like to drink tea less so than when I was aptly reviewing teas. I find that I like less and less of things as I age. I am a somber spirit who prays daily to not be at all. Thank you Steepster for all that you do to enrich tea drinkers.
