Old Tea Bag Sip Down
My parents went to Germany a few years ago. I’m assuming this is a remnant from that trip. The dry aroma is a weird sweet cardboard. As I sit here watching it steep it looks more like an oolong or a black tea. The liquor aroma is slightly fishy a bit earthy. Maybe this would be better when it is fresh but right now… it’s not good. The leaf looks a little more decent than the last tea bag but it’s still a sad CTC. Ugh… yeah no… I can’t finish this…
I believe I got a single tea bag of this lovely named tea from postcrossing; as that’s where I got most of tea bags.
Under the name of the tea there is written (in German) black currant and ginger. That caught my attention in today gloomy, cold (6°C all day), rainy day.
When I did research, official website said it is an oolong-tea with fruity flavours (dragonfruit and black currant). That sounded even better, but further research of ingredients says no oolong! Weird.
I have been expecting a strong hibiscus note, but there is hardly any! It is indeed fruity after dragonfruit (I had a sorbet once and that’s all my experience) and tart blackcurrant is there too. While it contains stevia, I didn’t noticed any weird sweet taste of it in my cup, and overall it is indeed enjoyable tea with warming ginger aftertaste. I definitely would buy a box, if I see it somewhere (Germany, here I come… again?!)
How to prepare this blend? Well, get loads of hibiscus, some apple pieces, plum flavouring and loads of cinnamon.
At least that is what I was thinking when drinking it. It was so deep red, but not tart at all thanks to apples, there was plum flavour, rather like a generic stonefruit. Well, I eat plums a bit unripe, so maybe it wasn’t that off; and cinnamon. Loads of cinnamon here.
Sadly, as the only spice is cinnamon, it was somehow flat. But it is pretty much true to its name. Cinnamon Plum. Maybe expectations were just different.
Ive pretty much run out of mesmer teas to try that I can get at my closest local stores (except the Holiday flavors) I found this on a trip to a far out grocery store and figured I had tried the rest- why not try this? I love berries.. and Ive had great luck with all the berry tea Ive tried recently. This one was pretty sweet on its own. A nice berry taste that isn’t bitter at all. Usually these types of tea are. Reminds me if something like a lotion, the way it smells/tastes. A verry berry lotion or bath treat. Its pleasant.
I think Mesmer did a great job with this one. And to think I was skeptical! Its the perfect dessert tea with a nice caramel flavor. With a little sweetener and milk it makes that craving go right away!! Cant believe it took me to long to give it a try, in searching steppster, karel roobios seems to be plentiful from other companies and I see why. Nice option for a caffiene free latte when you dont want to flavor the plain one yourself!!
I was skeptical of this one because no matter how many cherry teas I have that are good, I always suspect it will taste like medicine. And I am almost always wrong. As I was with this one, it has the perfect cherry taste, wild idk. But it balances perfectly with the roobios. And is yummy with a bit of sweetener and froth as a latte. Hits the spot when ai am craving late night sweets. And cherry tea always helps me sleep better. Worth a try!! As for me, I think I found an herbal staple. i cant have black tea late, although a black tea latte is my fave but this will do!
I didn’t even know I was drinking stomach love tea until i just now googled it and now Ive had the entire box. Its an herbal one with a boring herbal- sweet fennel taste. Typical and forgettable. Not much chamomile. I don’t think it did anything special for my stomach. But I am happy to be done with all the super herbally flavors from mesmer. Yay!!
Flavors: Anise, Fennel
I think I have just fallen in love with Roobios. Its always been a nice caffeine free choice, but not my favorite. It still isn’t but I like it considerably more now. Especially this one with vanilla. I love lattes, and always crave them at night, but no can do with caffeine and I don’t buy caffeine free. Towards the end of the box, I decided to make it into a latte and it truly hit the spot!! Whats really nice about it is the vanilla, I can actually taste it and it compliments the Roobios nicely. This box has me excited to try the other varieties of Roobios.
This is a weird combination but I like to try odd and new things so I went for it. It has ginseng as the active ingredient and let me tell you… its best not to have caffeine with it. Or maybe its just me. But it gave me heart palpitations. Energy was alright but I prefer caffeine. Taste is highly forgettable and Ive had it every day this week. Would not buy again.
Mmm Ginger tea. Its easy enough to make a Ginger Tea with fresh Ginger… but easiest to just pop some Ginger tea… into a mug. Since it has some snap I like mine with sweetener. It works… I think I like the Asian teas that come with dehydrated honey in it… but this works since the other type is not easily accessible.
This will be the last Sage tea for awhile. I have now tried all three of the different types on offer with Mesmer. This and the regular Sage are almost the same, with this being a little mellow. I thought it would have been stronger than regular sage but nope. Don’t really get much Eucalyotus and was shocked there was a tea, although it makes sense. Eucalyptus is one of my favorite oils so I thought this would have a similar sinus opening feeling. iIt woukd probably be very useful for cold and flu, but not the best tea to drink just for fun.
Definitely not the most appealing flavor when it comes to tea..but I’m trying them all! Anyway..the first time i Had this the apple stood out, every time after that I get a hit of lime. A stronger lime than apple flavor. But every now and then the apple would sneak up and come for me. Had a bit of sweetness to it. No honey necessary. It was…OK. Not something I would buy again.
Flavors: Apple, Lime
More Sage tea. Not my first choice of tea but Im determined to try them all. I love sage in chicken pot pie… tea is meh. But its good for your health allegedly. And helps with apetite control since it does not taste that good it stops all cravings completely for me. It tastes kinda like Rosemary. I think they have some of the same chemical makeup is why. Cool one to try but not something I would buy again. I did just pick up a box of the Sage Eucalyptus so well see how that one goes. In comparison to the honey Sage, I would go for this over that
Not too long ago I reviewed a Turkish Apple Fig tea from Mesmer. Except that one said Bayram. IDK if they are the same. I can’t remember what it tasted like. I would like to think they are different. Anyway..the apple had some tart to it the first time I tried it And then you get the fig part. It’s named appropriately. And enjoyable..but very forgettable. Would I buy recommend? Ehhhhh. I wish there was an option for maybe
Flavors: Fig, Green Apple
I didn’t have high expectations for this tea..but I was pleasantly surprised. Berry tea’s can be a lot of miss for me. This one is a blend of elderberry, blackberry, blueberry, strawberry, and blackberry with your rosehip and hibiscus. I thought it might be a little bitter when steeped like rosehip/hibiscus always is. It’s nice hot..but shines when you drink it cold. It becomes almost like a berry koolaide without all the sweet. But still I don’t need to add sweetener. I like it. I would definitely pick this one up again in the summer or just if I need a berry tea.
Flavors: Cherry, Sweet
