Taster’s Review:

I have enjoyed the adventure of these teas and tisanes from Les 2 Marmottes.  Since I can’t read most of the packaging, I have to turn to the website and Chrome’s ability to translate the French language to know what the tea is all about.  It makes for an interesting tea moment.

When I grabbed this Boost Et Moi … I visited the website to see what ingredients I would be encountering with this blend.  Here’s what the translated website lists:

  • Hibiscus Flower
  • Rosehip
  • Melissa
  • Guarana
  • Ginseng
  • Ginger

I wish that there wasn’t hibiscus in this.  Fortunately the hibiscus imparts very little of its tart flavor, mostly it seems it is there for a berry like flavor and the vivid ruby color and a bit of texture.  I’m glad that it’s not a syrupy texture.

There is an interesting contrast of flavors in this blend:  a distinct herbaceous note with a slight earthy character from the ginseng.  There is a touch of lemon-y taste from the Melissa, and the Guarana adds a slight bitter note.  I like the peppery zing of ginger.

This is the third tea/tisane that I’ve tasted from Les 2 Marmottes, and it’s probably my least favorite of the three.  I would rather the hibiscus not be in there, and I’m not wild about ginseng.  That said, this is not an unpleasant functional tea, but I don’t know that it’s one that I’d reach for to drink every day.  I do like the burst of energy that this tea provides, though.

Overall, this is alright, but not my favorite of these little adventures that Les 2 Marmottes has taken me on.
