Have you ever gotten a tea, and just put off trying it because you were uncertain of it? And when you finally get around to trying it, you love it and can’t help but wonder what took you so long to actually try it? Well, I am there now with this tea. I’ve had this tea for a little while now, but never tried it until tonight. And now that I’m trying it, I am kicking myself for not having tried it sooner! I am really enjoying it!
I guess it’s that herbal thing again. I am hesitant to try herbal teas because I worry that they’re going to taste… well, herbal-y. You know… medicinal. But, while this does have a herbaceous taste to it, I wouldn’t call it a medicinal-tasting tea.
This delicious blend of herbs has a very strong vanilla essence. The vanilla is creamy and sweet, while the other ingredients help to build a mild background. The spearmint is not strong, but the flavor is melding nicely with the vanilla tones. The raspberry provides a light, tangy berry taste in the background, while the lemongrass offers a hint of citrus-y undertones.
This is one of the nicest herbal teas that I’ve come across in a long time. It is a very soothing, calming tea… you don’t have to be here in the Pacific Northwest to enjoy a taste of our beautiful sunsets! All you need is a cup of this relaxing tisane.
