The Capsoul teas put their teas in beautiful tins, and this is what motivated me to try 2 teas a few years ago. Then, in another online private sale, I bought some more tins of different types of tea. And although the teas themselves might not be among the best I´ve tried, the colourful design of the labels really makes a difference too, which is especially important in these times (I´m in Madrid in lockdown since more than a week).
This tea blend is one the blends in The Capsoul´s “functional” line, this specific blend apparently to cure your cough. In nose I get a lot of mint and eucalyptus, once brewed I notice a bit of thyme (which I´ld have loved to be more present) but it stays in the line of commercial soothers some people like sucking when they have a sore throat. Personally, it reminds me a lot of those herbal infusions my mother used to prepare me when I was a kid.
Easy enough to drink, a minty touch that won´t offend nobody, but it´s a shame the loose tea is really very broken down and even with the best filter around, you get a lot of small pieces in the liquid (it´s where you can tell the blend contains rooibos). Maybe, I´ll hand this tin to my mother for its further use…
Flavors: Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Rooibos, Thyme
