Taster’s Review:

Have you ever looked at a tea and just thought this tea is going to be amazing? The smell was fabulous and you could tell that this tea was going to have the wow factor?

I had never heard of Red Clover Tea and Herbs until the other day when I was on Twitter.  I checked out their site and couldn’t believe the amount of teas they offered.  I was excited when my nicely packaged box arrived with a few teas to sample.

High-C has this amazing delicious fragrance to it.  It has that smell that reminds me of apple butter but with quite a bit of cinnamon thrown in for good measure.  Such a nice jelly/jammy flavor. I steeped this up according to the packaging on the tin, enjoying watching the color of the water turn  to a lovely pink color.

Took my first sip, all the while still enjoying the beautiful fragrant notes of apple butter.  Wow.  This has to be one of the best herbal teas I’ve ever had.  Their is hibiscus in the blend but not an overwhelming amount.  Just enough to provide a bit of a tart flavor.  Like what you would get from a green apple.  The cinnamon is lovely and gives that hibiscus apple note something to contrast with.  The two flavors together really taste fantastic.  The cloves are there but are not dominating like a lot of other clove teas I’ve had in the past seem to be.  Wood Betony is also listed as an ingredient.  I wasn’t sure what flavor it was bringing to the table.   From what I’m seeing from Wikipedia, this herb was considered one of those herbs that would cure what ails you. Another herbal that is in this mix that I’m not 100% familiar with is red clover.  Another herb I’ll need to research more.

This organic herbal tea is simply amazing.  The taste is perfect and matches the fall weather that is coming soon for us here in the Mid-West.  I would love to try this tea in muffin mix, as a tea pop, as an iced tea. . .The notes of the apple cinnamon jammy sort really play well with experimenting.

Tasters Review:

This is my busiest time of the year doing what I do for my Full Time Job and I thought I would have a cup of this to try and mellow out before switching gears from “work mode” to “home mode”.

I may not always grab an herbal tisane by choice – or should I say “at first glance” – but I have found the ones I am drawn to have mint in them.  Lucky for me this one features mint…among other things.  Another thing I am excited about in this blend of flavors is the Stevia…but I will get to that in a minute…

The post-infusion color of this tea/tisane is that of a bright yellow with a slight orange hue.  Very vibrant!   The aroma is mostly chamomile and mint but not overly-so.

The taste is soothing, relaxing, slightly minty, a bit of chamomile, green tea, and herbally.  Everything jives well together and there isn’t one ingredient that over powers the others…I like that in herbal teas!  It has a sweet finish which is nice, too!

The Stevia gives it a sweet or a hint of a sugar-sweetness to it.  I think this works very well here!  I think it really makes the blend special!

Another thing I like about this offering from Solay is that it came with a cute little wooden scoop which I will be doing a separate review on within the next week!

Please!  Check out this website!  It’s wonderful!  Their customer service via email is great!  They are good at answering any questions you may have!  Their ingredients are top-notch!  What a delight!
