What I’m enjoying most with the teas that I’ve received in this Eden Grove Prism Collection is that many of these blends are very unusual. Take this Whole Leaf Green Tea with Essence of Lemongrass & Chrysanthemum from Eden Grove for example. This isn’t a blend that I’d probably find just anywhere.
Oh sure, I’ve tried many lemongrass blends, and a few teas with Chrysanthemum … but a tea that focuses only on these two essences? No, I can’t say that I’ve found a tea quite like this one before.
And I’m enjoying this. I can’t say that I’ll be out there looking for another Lemongrass and Chrysanthemum blend because I probably won’t. But if I do happen to find one, I wouldn’t be opposed to trying it. I like the light citrus-y note from the lemongrass and the soft floral notes of the chrysanthemum.
The green tea is a sweet and slightly grassy tasting tea, and I think that the natural buttery taste of the green tea accentuates the light buttery taste of the lemongrass. It makes for a pleasant taste and texture. The lemongrass has a sweet citrus taste that is reminiscent of lemon and lime, but without the pucker-y sour notes of the fruits.
The chrysanthemum is a very subtle taste with just a hint of floral taste that contrasts nicely with the tea and lemongrass.
Overall, it’s a pleasant cuppa. I enjoyed about half of my cup while it was still hot, and then I was distracted by other things, and came back to my cup and it was cold. I was surprised to find how tasty it is cold – this would make a really nice iced tea!
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!
