Adriatic tea herbal blend – description
Even though Aromatica recommends using two teaspoons for 1 litre of boiling water, steeped for 20 minutes, I am more prone to using less water. Their recommendation has its own reasons (herbal tea brewing), but I do prefer to get the taste out, rather than benefits. In both cases the liquor will be amazing and intense. Hibiscus overwhelmingly dominates the whole blend and give a sour flavor, while the all other herbs can be felt from the depth of a brew, slowly emerging to the surface. Herbal flavors are not too weak nor too strong. Rosemary give the strongest flavor. Color is really beautiful, thick, deep and dark. This tea can be stored on a shelf for a long time. One more advantage is that it’s great as iced-tea as well. I can really imagine drinking it in any possible way for any possible occasion..
This herbal tea is a great choice for those who would like to explore the beneficial sides of Adriatic herbs, but are not so fond of intense herbal flavors. It’s worth saying that hibiscus is covering them up very well, so your taste buds will not suffer at all. Rosemary as a tea has a great flavor, but some of you might find it repulsive due to high intensity. And last, sage can be extremely bitter, but in this tea this cannot be felt at all. This is a really good blend.
Many thanks to Ines on this tea.
