3 Tasting Notes
This was a gift from a friend who called it “swamp tea” and thought it was appropriate since I live in Florida. Brewing the leaves loose does indeed look like a swamp, in a pretty way. The leaves reveal their vibrant green after they’ve steeped. The tea is a pale gold-yellow and the taste is very mild but lightly earthy and vegetal. I like floral and grassy greens, but love greens like this.
This is my go-to calming tea or nighttime blend. The scent is amazing, like everyone says, very sweet but balanced. Happily, though, the tea itself isn’t as sweet as it smells. The chamomile blends with the sharper ingredients so well, and the peppermint balances it perfectly. It also stands up to a lot of abuse (varying steep times and temps) so I take it everywhere.
