tarragon tea

2014 Danjean-Berthoux Mercurey “Les Chavances”

Mmmm… waiter, another bottle of this lovely Burgundy, s’il vous plaît! Cola, peppered strawberries, cranberries, forest floor, tea, and bark on the nose. Lovely on the palate wth red currants, black tea, pomegranate, tarragon, coriander, and a dusting of pepper. Fresh, tart acidity.

4/5 bones

Tarragon Tea

Oh, tarragon, it’s as if this day never existed because of you…

Tip: This tea tastes amazing and has a lot of health benefits but unless you want to feel sleepy all throughout the day, DO NOT DRINK THIS IN THE MORNING. Believe it or not, I had 3 naps this afternoon. I felt very, very weak. Apparently, tarragon has been used as a sedative. Wish I googled about it first. Better drink this tea at night before you go to sleep.
