This is an odd one. It’s very very VERY light, for one, but it does have a flavor. Harney & Sons describes it as woodsy, and that’s actually pretty accurate, it’s delicately floral and peppery, not hot, but peppery in a green, leafy kind of way, and almost savory/herbal, like oregano or something. It has an unusual aroma too, a bit like dried orange flowers. Some might find it tastes “perfumey” but that’s not something I mind. I wish it was a little stronger though.
I’d really like to try the tisanes made from pure linden flowers to compare, since this includes leaves as well, in my sample packet there were a lot more leaves than flowers. They actually look really pretty, the leaves are so delicate you can see through them, they weren’t crushed beyond recognition either.
Also, this stuff is really soothing, it’s like chamomile or something. Bonus points for that in my book.
