Tasters Review:

These leaves are HUGE and look like your basic dried leaf from a tree…a light grey-ish green in color.

This doesn’t really have a scent to it prior to infusion.  Once I started infusing this it start to smell like a cross between asparagus and celery.  The aroma was subtle.  It’s a clear yet vibrant and brilliantly bright yellow in color.

The taste is mellow.  One sip sort of reminds me of a light floral taste and the next sip is a tad reminiscent of a celery or a non-bitter dandelion stem type taste.  Regardless if I am tasting more floral than veggie or more veggie than floral it is mild, mellow, and pleasant and fairly brothy.

I love that this is a new offering from In Nature and a different sort of flower-type tea/tisane.  It’s also said to be a slimming tea!  For a slimming tea it tastes quite pleasant due to it’s mild flavor.

Pretty good, indeed!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
