I’ve never had fenugreek tea, and I don’t think I’ve ever had it as a seasoning in food either, so I had no expectations when it came to this tea.
But I am a huge fan of The Republic of Tea. I love all their teas, and I love reusing the tins that their teas come in. While my water was coming to a boil, I smelled the tea bag as you do, and I noticed a very pleasant cinnamon smell.
Things were definitely looking up for this tea adventure. I made my cup of tea, and when I took my first sip I was seriously blown away. It tastes like cookies, like a snickerdoodle or something similar. The tea has fenugreek seeds, cinnamon and organic carrot(?). Somehow those three ingredients make for a deliciously sweet cookie like tea. I mean, I am blown away by the deliciousness!
It’s not sweet in a cloying way, and the cinnamon is very gentle, much milder than a Chai tea for example. It’s just a very delicious and very pleasant tea. It needs no sweetener or milk, it’s amazing all on it’s own. According to The Republic of Tea’s website. this tea is for nursing moms.
Apparently fenugreek can help stimulate milk production. Since I am not a nursing mom, I decided to do a little research and see what other health benefits this tea had, and there are so many. It can help women with menstrual discomfort, can help reduce cholesterol, provide relief from sore throats, and so much more. What a delicious way to get some amazing health benefits.
This tea is just a delicious beverage even if you don’t care about any of that stuff. I am so so happy I got to try this tea. It is a new favorite. And it’s caffeine free, so it’s safe to drink anytime! It would be a great dessert tea.
