here. I recently picked up a sample, and when the snack bug started biting today I decided to give it a try. My tea bag has spinach and chives in it. It's like having a healthy snack! I really do love the idea of this tea, but does the taste meet my expectations?
My sample is spinach chive, and the ingredients are: organic spinach leaves, organic chives, organic dried lime, organic dill, organic onion, decaf green tea, organic coriander, organic turmeric, organic garlic. Hmm, sounds like something I'd eat for lunch, or maybe even drink as a smoothie. I do enjoy a green juice now and again, so this has potential.
The dry tea bag has a strong dill and onion scent. It made me smile because the dill brought me back to my childhood sticker book days. I had a 'scratch and sniff' dill pickle sticker that smelled very similar! The directions are steep 10 minutes while covered. That's quite a long time, but I don't like my tea to be too hot so I didn't mind. It also says to squeeze the bag after steeping to maximize flavors. I've heard tea bags are not supposed to be squeezed because it makes the brew bitter. But since there isn't much actual tea in these, it may not be such a faux pas.
My main concern after drinking this tea is the lingering onion/garlic breath. This may make it difficult to drink in the office. I think I'd like to try cooking with the liquid instead of drinking it. I still can't get that potato soup/ spniach chive tea out of my head, so I may have to whip some up soon.
