Picked this up from an overseas hotel room – interested because I like elderblossom flavoring. Also called linden in German and tilleul in French. It steeps up to a light greenish-yellow liquor, with a mild herbal/slightly sweet and citrusy aroma. The flavor is gently musky and just a little naturally sweet – overall, very relaxing.

Lime was sort of the default for night tisanes in my part of Europe for ages. Now it is getting replaced by hibiscus which is a totally different “animal” and which I do not like nearly as much!

Adham

Agreed – I find hibiscus brash and lime much more gentle.

In Slovakia we called the tree LIPA ( linden tree ) and we drink LIPOVY CAJ . In England they called it a LIME FLOWER. It taste nice with some honey.

Bio

Grandma introduced me to tea as a kid (lipton with milk and sugar; a bit poured into the saucer to cool it down and then sipped from there), and I’ve never looked back. Still have a slight preference for teas that go well with milk (or even better, cream) and sugar, but since Grandma’s day I’ve branched out to appreciate green and white teas, rooibos and pu erh. Absolutely love Mariage Freres!
