This is such a deliciously unique tea!
The fragrance of the dry leaf is amazing – I can smell the citrus tones, a light amount of spice from the ginger, and the strawberry! Together, these scents create a mesmerizing aroma.
The flavor is light and crisp. The white tea base has a delicate vegetative taste. It is clean and fresh. There is a soft, barely-there mouthfeel and a light astringency.
The fruit flavors are nicely balanced and appeal to the palate with sweet, tangy and tart notes. The ginger is not overwhelming here and adds just a hint of zesty spice. I don’t remember having tasted oatstraw in a tea before, so I don’t know if I’m tasting it now or not, but, oatstraw is very beneficial to health and I’m glad it’s there!
As I sip, I can feel the stresses of the day melt away. I can even feel the tension in my shoulders lighten a little! This is an amazing tea, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to try it.
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
