From In Pursuit of Tea

Mount Olympus, also known as Ironwort, are flowers that have been gathered, dried, and infused in the Mediterranean for centuries. This hearty shrub is historically used for medicinal purposes but we love it for its delicious peppery flavor. Naturally caffeine free, enjoy after dinner!

//Story Time
I went ahead and ordered some sampler pouches and a few custom blend tins from Adagio. Totally didn’t need to as I still have plenty of tea to drink, but the samplers have many teas I still need to try and would be nice to taste before I blend them.

//Tea Time
This is from an ancient steepster select bag that I just opened. Man I wasn’t expecting there to be full size leafs and blossoms in there; I mean I should have cause the bag was so poofy. The smell and taste reminded me or herbal shops and specifically tension tamer teas. It has this sweet menthol peppery smell. This translates over into the taste, but with even vague undertone flavors of licorice or fennel. It’s actually kinda complex with the flavor changing as it cools to revel a sweet and smooth mouth feel and pleasant herbaceous pepper. Biggest thing I noticed as well is just how smooth and sweet this tea is. Most herbal blends tend to have that bitter medicinal taste, but this has none of that. Maybe it’s cause it isn’t shredded or fannings so it doesn’t over extract the leafs? Overall this is a very pleasant tea that is much smoother and sweeter than most herbal teas.

From my Steepster select box, December 2014!

I had almost forgotten about this one! The package it comes in is so stuffed. I was a little taken aback when I opened the package. Inside it looked like there was fresh sage stuffed into the package. The leaves were probably no picked within the last month or three, but they looked so fresh. The smell was interesting to say the least. It was peppery and herbaceous. The leaves produced a light green liquor with … well, peppery and herbaceous notes. It was pretty light. I even used over half the package. (4g+) the flavor was quite lacking, and very watered down.
Eh. It was a great experience. But I don’t think I would reach for it ever again.

Flavors: Herbs, Pepper

This tea needs more vigorous heating than most herb teas; that is why your tea was weak. Typically they say boil it for 3 to 5 minutes, and then steep another 3-5 minutes.
