this tea was such a welcome surprise! i got no sleep and woke up looking like i got punched in the face— a deep infection in the eye socket apparently. no driving, no school, all i can think is ‘really? seriously? dammit’. came out of nowhere. however i find this tea a lovely distraction.

i don’t have a a lot of experience with green teas, though i am amending that bit by bit. i think the name ‘macaron’ had me thinking of macaroons…(definitely not!). this blend is light and refreshing. i get unexpected notes of cilantro and a hint of basil, a soft fruit component….a dark berry that isn’t black berry or logan.

the green tea is lovely and light: no smoke or pungancy. to me this is a savoury tea… though as it cools i detect some cassis.

i’ve never had a savoury tea. how lovely. thank you ysaurella!

I think I ordered this (for once, you didn’t make me do it). I’m excited to try it!

lol…. it’s a brilliantly complicated blend. very unexpected. i wonder if you’ll get the same savoury essence as i did?

Anna

We shall see! My package arrived in Italy on Friday, so maybe, just maybe…

Ysaurella

that’s funny, to me the blackcurrant is the first thing I got an,d behind the candied violet.
For sure even if greens are not your cup of tea, this is an easy green for beginners, sooooo mellow…Glad you liked it

I hope your eye is fully recovered!
