Colombo Garlic Tea from Mela Teas is the tea of the moment here at the Sororitea Sisters! I have to start this off by being completely honest…I LOVE GARLIC! No! I don’t think you understand…I LOVE GARLIC! I would throw garlic on cereal if it were more P.C. – that’s how much I LOVE GARLIC!
Ok…now that we have THAT out of the way on to the tea review of Colombo Garlic Tea from Mela Teas! I’m trying to go in with the thought that not everyone is as CRAZY as I am about GARLIC because the MORE GARLIC the merrier for me! So, having said that, this is tasty! The garlic is NICELY done. Not OVERDONE at all. But as I continue to sip on this I can understand the level of garlic intensity Mela Teas decided to go with here!
The black tea base joins hands with the garlic in Colombo Garlic Tea from Mela Teas. Flavor-wise it’s a 50/50 partnership in terms of taste. I’m not sure if it’s because of the amount of garlic or the strength of the tea. One could say that it’s a weaker to medium strength black tea base and/or the garlic is at a strength where it kicks the black tea base down a notch. Either way – I’m game!
As this cools at room temperature a bit more I am getting more and more garlic which I really like. I suppose it’s much like COOKING with garlic where it strengthens over time as it simmers. Colombo Garlic Tea from Mela Teas is darn-tootin’ fantastic, folks! Whether you are a garlic fan or if you are looking for another way to up your garlic intake without having to actually eat it this is something to check out! Colombo Garlic Tea from Mela Teas is flavorful and interesting! I just might have to cook some rice in this tea just to see what it tastes like. Peppy, savory, and delicious!
