This is my afternoon tea choice. I was hoping for something nice and light and this tea delivered.

The tea is so pretty and delicate. The leaves are quite long, mixed with some shorter ones as well. It’s all twisted together and reminds me of confetti all curled around.

165/1.5 min The first scent I’m getting is vegetal and I’m pretty much rolling my eyes as it’s what I always get. I’m hoping not to be on the verge of drinking yet another cup of asparagus tea. It is somewhat vegetal, but I’m disgusted by it. In fact, I think I’m beginning to appreciate vegetal tasting teas now because here I sit, drinking it. I do pick up a slight floral taste as indicated in the description, and yes, I can discern a macadamia nut follow, but I am not picking up any sweetness or grass. Just a tad of asparagus. (Yes, again.) I’m starting to forge a bond with asparagus.

Preparation

I’m a middle school teacher of French, Spanish, ESL and reading intervention. I’m also a mom to two young children.

I’ve always been a tea lover. When I lived in France during college, I really loved the tisanes. Over the past couple of years, I’ve branched off into loose teas. I’m not very knowledgeable about teas, but I’m really loving the learning process!
