Not being a huge fan of strongly floral teas, finding the right floral tisane can be tricky. I have issues with lavender so when ever I see a floral tea without lavender especially a tisane, I get quite excited.
Enlightening Lotus is by far one of the most stunning flowering teas I’ve brewed up. Basically this tea is one gorgeous flower. When put in just the right tea pot, you have one stunning presentation. Simply gorgeous. My husband even commented by how lovely the presentation of this tea was. Pops of brilliant yellow filled my tea pot. How can you not smile when you see that?
But this tea’s presentation doesn’t match the flavor. I will try my best to explain this tea because it is so incredibly unique and unusual. Each sip delivers a wonderfully musk and earthy tone from the start to finish. Gone is that sweet typical floral that you normally pick up when you drink a floral tisane. Robust yet gentle woodsy flavors swirl around with a very subtle hint of sweetness at the end of each sip.
This tisane is remarkable and a unique drinking experience. I love how this tea pops with bright and vibrant colors but the flavor has more of a dark flavor. A tisane after my own heart!
