67 Tasting Notes
Drinking this was like drinking hot cough syrup. Mom tried to make iced tea from it but had to dump it. It was so bad that I actually wrote to Salada and complained that they should be ashamed to put such crap on the market. They responded with a wad of coupons for all types of Salada tea.
Highly recommended herbal tea, especailly paired with dessert, peanut butter sandwiches or cheese. Individually wrapped, too. I don’t know about you, but I like to sniff the foil pouch after I take the tea bag out and this pouch smelled like Juicy Fruit gum. However, the tea does not taste like Juicy Fruit. I wonder if the “natural flavors” listed include any dandelion and burdock, which make up the core flavorings of Juicy Fruit gum.
I found this in Stash’s Organic assortment. It’s very smooth and not as powerful as Stash Double Bergemeont Earl Grey or even Stash regular Earl Grey. I can’t detect any bitterness usually associated with green tea. I now only drink this tea to reward myself for doing something I’ve been putting off — otherwise I’d probably just spend my days drinking tea and not not doing much else.
I initially avoided this tea, thinking it would be like Celestial Seasoning’s “Blow Your Head Off” Peppermint. But I read Jillian’s suggestion to try this tea. I’m so glad I did. It’s now become one of the daily after dinner teas Mom and I drink. It’s sweet, minty, doesn’t rev you up and soothes the digestive tract. Thanks again, Jillian.
