|It is quite exciting that this beautiful tea tin also|
contained such a beautiful tea blend inside.
My dear sister in law definitely has good taste :)
|I served the tea just like this. Let the tea steep into the whole |
teapot, giving the ingredients a lot of room to move around.
Not only that, I found it so pretty...
And then I used a tea strainer when pouring it into the glass.
Not only is it so beautiful it's really good too, in my opinion of course. Hubby says, as he often does about herbal teas: "eww, watered down juice," hahaha. Because it's herbal, it very well is. Served hot, it's a nice dessert (well, i did put quite a bit of rock sugar in there). Served cold, I needed more sweetener. Tastes very yummy but maybe not quite good for your health that way, lol... It is very tart without the sweetener. I taste and smell the "berry" there most of all. I don't know, but my taste buds does not find the coconut. Hmmm... The citrus flavor and aroma is also quite dominant. Overall, I am excited about this tea. (p.s. I was quite surprised to find a carrot in there, lol)
|This mug is similar to a french-press on the go.|
So the tea stayed in the cup for the duration of my drinking it.
(about 2 hours)
Because it is herbal, there was no yucky taste of over-steeping.
Not so true when there's tea leaves in there too :)
My only downside to this tea is the price of course. But that does not apply to this one right now because it is a gift from my ever wonderful family :) Also, to make the taste become more profound, more tea is needed. Since this tea is quite pricey, I added some rose buds and hibiscus on my next cup. And the flavor became even more enchanting... Hibiscus adds a really great berry flavor. And the scent of the tea just captured my senses. (oh really? lol) It was a very hot day but I took it out with me in this new mug. It provided a nice, relaxed feeling while working outside.
