My Teatoxy order arrived this morning :D It was packed beautifully and presented well.
The leaves are a large and rough blend, looking very floral and firm though also natural and good quality. They smell lightly herbal, nothing specific standing out though, perhaps the lemongrass if any.
I steeped a large pot of this and watched the liquid diffuse into gorgeous blue liquid. My husband had a wtf? reaction to it’s colour as I hadn’t told him about bluechai flowers before. I had to take a picture, because when I say it’s blue I literally mean it. Unfortunately I don’t have any lemon in the house to turn it purple. It was a long 8 minute steep though I expected as much from a herbal tea anyway.
Tasting time. I took a large sip without knowing what to expect. It’s thickly lemongrass though there is a toasted element to it also. So toasted lemongrass, unusual yet very nice at the same time, and it lingers sweetly in the after taste. There is also a mixed herbal thickness though it is blended in well enough to not be a negative factor, and it tastes fairly fresh.
I’ve had a few cups of this now from my large pot and I really like it. I love lemongrass tea in general but this blend gives it another depth that I haven’t really tried before. It’s still a lemongrass tea but with the toasty and sweet herby elements it becomes something else! An excellent introduction to this company so far. And as far as my energy level goes this has picked me up somewhat.
Flavors: Herbs, Lemongrass, Toasty
