Honestly, I thought this was chamomile when I asked for this sample. So I didn’t quite know what to expect once I realized it wasn’t. The dry pieces smell like sweet, toasted rice. There’s something else, too, that I can’t quite describe. I assume it’s the persimmon identified in the Teavivre description, since I’ve never actually had persimmon.

This tisane brews up a nice, lemony yellow. And the taste is fantastic! Nothing at all like chamomile, for sure. Closer to sencha. Toasted rice, sweetness, a touch of corn… and again that something else that I can’t articulate. I think the lesson here is that I need to hit my local Chinese market and try some persimmon!

This is a nice sleepy-time tea.

I love your description. I thought it kind of tasted like white tea. We have about 100 persimmon trees on our property. The local persimmons taste nothing like Camellia. They are very sweet and have a high pucker factor. Makes for a great dessert pudding or bread. Maybe Chinese persimmons are completely different. Teavivre says to try mixing this with green tea.
