Taster’s Review:

OK… so this was a tea that made me a little nervous.  Lots of herbs AND Pu-erh?  Yeah, not exactly high up there on the oh-my-goodness-I-really-must-try-it-now list. But now that I’m tasting it, I’m enjoying it.  In fact, I like this a lot, and I could see myself drinking this on a regular basis.

After examining the contents of this sample package, I noticed that there seemed to be more herbs than tea in this blend, so, I decided to steep it at 195°F for 8 minutes to get the most out of those herbs.  And I’m quite satisfied with the result.

There is a LOT going on with this blend.  The first flavor I notice is the sarsaparilla, and it gives the cup a very root beer kind of taste.  I then notice the ginger – it adds a gentle, soothing warmth without tasting too spicy.  The cacao adds a hint of chocolate-y flavor to the background.  Also in the background, I notice a citrus-y note.

Overall, the cup is very herb-y tasting without tasting too medicinal.  The Pu-erh does manage to make its presence known.  It adds an earthiness to the cup that balances everything out.  I find this to be a very satisfying cup – quite soothing and calming – I feel the stress drain from my body!

This is my kind of beauty regimen!
