What Does Buddha Teas Cat’s Claw Tea Taste Like?
The first thing you’ll notice about. Buddha Teas Cat’s Claw Tea is the gorgeous color, reminiscent of an evening sky, as a rose-tinted glow spreads across an expansive horizon. That being said, looks here may be deceiving, as the taste of our Cat’s Claw Tea reveals that you can’t tell a tea by its hue. Neither sweet, nor all that distinctive, this mild cup of earthy wonder may leave you scratching your head, as the flavor lends itself quite well to playing around with other teas. Additionally, something else you’ll notice is that the tea itself is powdery, having been cultivated from the bark part of the plant, rather than like with other herbal teas the leaves or seeds. The bark is actually stripped off the vine, and then ground into a powder that eventually ends up in your tea bag. You’ll notice the tea itself is rather cloudy, not clear. Further, if you tune in to the sensation, you’ll likely experience a kind of “thick” feeling, which definitely seems to be urging you to take in the nurturing that cat’s claw wants to provide.
How to Make Cat’s Claw Tea
A good boil is recommended, and a decent steep, but not too long, say 3-5 minutes. You’ll be encouraged to include your favorite sweetener, if sweet’s your thing. Or, experiment with other flavors; we love to include a bag of our versatile Ginger Root Tea, though Fennel and Fenugreek are fantastic options as well.
