This was an interesting tea, and interesting circumstances in which it was chosen as my tea to go the other day. I don’t know why, but I was having crazy itching at work, and I didn’t know the cause, but I also didn’t want to be knocked out at work from a Benadryl, so I looked for a tea that might offer relief. I asked the SAs, and they weren’t too sure what might help, but suggestions were either rooibos/honeybush, for hydration, or a white tea, for the anti-oxidants. I opted for this one, as it has ginger and I thought it might have a blood cleansing/warming type of effect. I dunno what I was thinking really, but I did stop itching. It might have been the tea, or it might have been the different atmosphere once I went home, or maybe just time.
The taste was interesting. I wish I could say I could pick up the pistachio or the peppercorns, but I mainly tasted the orange and cinnamon, and a little spice from the ginger. No coconut, none of the other flavours. Perhaps they just married the others well, and made a complex taste, but I think really, they were just understated, or underwhelmed.
All in all, it was not a bad tea. Probably not one I’d buy for myself, though I’d drink it if it was given to me.
