Rose hips .Chado TeaMarch 24, 2007 at 11:41 pm | Posted in Herbal Tea, Tea Reviews | Leave a comment
looseleaf pieces of rosehips…
dry leaf: very nice colorful, tiny smell.
infusion: boiled water 2tsp 5min and more…
taste: flavor … 2/7 watery. top of tongue tiny sweet or warm liquid sensation, back half of tongue and sides of tongue citrusy/sour, confusing lemon sensation.
wet leaf when chewed is almost tasteless as well.
no. not a very exciting infusion. personally feel it unpleasant a bit.
(had done an infusion yesterday 1tsp in 190F water, and had the same taste – which i thought was from low temperature and not enough plant, but obviously its the same experience repeated).
