Good Morning tea-lovers.
Just before the Easter break I was strolling down the high street and I decided to pop into a herbal store to see if they had any teas that I had not yet tried.
I came across this. This is Jamaica Roasted Spice Organic Ayurvedic Spice Infusion from Yogi Tea.
There were many teas to choose from in the herbal store but this one in particular jumped out at me.
I felt like I was looking for something to make myself feel better (we have been suffering in the UK with lots of cold and bad weather). I thought this blend would be great as the ingredients are-
- Roasted Chicory
- Barley Malt
- Black Pepper
- Blessed Thistle
Wow I know what you may be thinking what a wonderful cocktail of ingredients (I certainly was).
Other than the wonderful ingredients I was drawn to this as the packaging was bright, informative and purposeful.
This blend is in teabags and you get 15 in a box which at a couple of pounds in cost is great value.
Yogi Tea advise the following for brewing-
Allow to infuse for 7 minutes- or longer for stronger flavour. Take a sip before adding your favourite sweetener and/or creamer and let the flavours you taste inspire the perfect proportions. Perfect for quiet breaks or cosy gatherings, Jamaica offers a delectable and spicy gourmet pick-me-up
I prepare my kettle to boil.
A minute or so later my kettle has boiled so I reach for my trusty China cup and place the bag in. I pour over the just boiled kettle water and allow the tea to infuse.
I must say as soon as the hot liquid hits the teabag an extraordinary aroma fills the air (almost like a spicy/herbal cough medicine- but in a very nice way!)
I particularly like herbal/spicy/homely/comfort aromas.
7 minutes later I take a small sip of the tea.
Wow! this tea is amazingly flavoursome, very soothing yet spicy.
I can really pull out each individual flavour of each of the ingredients in this tea which is really amazing as they are all powerful notes normally.
Yogi Tea describes this tea as-
Yogi Tea Jamaica Roasted Spice Organic Tea combines the full flavours of roasted chicory and carob with the aromatic spices of cardamom, cinnamon, ginger and cloves thus creating the perfect full bodied alternative to your daily cup of coffee. The blend of spices and rich flavours create a blend that will satisfy anyone – the perfect pick-me-up tea.
Product Ingredients:Roasted Chicory* (20%), Cinnamon*, Barley Malt*, Carob*, Cardamom*, Black Pepper*, Liquorice, Blessed Thistle*.
* Certified Organic Ingredient.
Overall I would describe this tea as a soothing, aromatic blend with robust flavours and a perfect balance of all flavours.
I thoroughly enjoyed tasting this blend and will be most certainly buying this again.
