Troy’s Teaview Snapshot
Its OK"The herbs were a beautiful mix of root chunks, grassish leaves, mint leaf fragments, and bits of flowers. It tasted exactly like it looked, namely like lemongrass, with a refreshing twist from the mint, and a flowery softening of the edges."

teagpitta.jpgI've often thought of polling my neighbors to determine their opinion of me. I'm odd, I've been told this many, many, times. I do odd things, at odd times, with odd stuff. It leaves me to wonder what they think when they hear "AHH LEMONY HARLOT" though the walls of the apartment building. Couldn't be helped, my taste buds were under attack and I screamed for assistance. I'm not sure what combination of too much herb, too little heat, and too much time produced the strange turquoise atrocity that I first sampled, but I wasn't able to repeat the terrible experience, for the good of all life, and the detriment of my natural scientific curiosity.

After a quick perusal of the Teagschwender website I found that I was brewing this mix entirely wrong. I was brewing it at the hot-but-not-boiling temperatures I brew most non-tea Tisanes, and only for a few minutes. According to the Teagschwender website this tea is to be brewed for about 5 min at near boiling temperatures. The herbs were a beautiful mix of root chunks, grassish leaves, mint leaf fragments, and bits of flowers. It tasted exactly like it looked, namely like lemongrass, with a refreshing twist from the mint, and a flowery softening of the edges. While its not exactly my favorite tisane, it is very good, and easy on the buds, and it would be loved by those who prefer herbal tisanes to true Tea.
