I thought this tea would have some green or white tea in it but it doesn’t. The main base is bamboo. I’ve never had a bamboo tea before and it smelled delicious in the bag. Brewed up the aroma reminds me of another tea I’ve had before (probably from Tealux but couldn’t place it). I think it was the combo of lemongrass and blackberry leaves. I could taste a bit of the lemongrass with a spicy edge to it (i’m thinking that’s the blackberry leaves) and a bit of sweetness. There was a nice pear/apple finish taste. So I’m still not sure what bamboo tastes like or if I’m picking it up the tea and don’t know which one is the bamboo. This tea is delicious and an extra bonus is it’s caffeine free. Another choice for an evening tea.

I just tried that stuff over this past weekend, what a neat little tisane!

Yes, too bad it’s a German tea. It must cost a fortune to ship.

It’s German, however they have a store or two in the US. I think it’s $7 for shipping if you order less than $50 or something, free otherwise? I’ve loved almost everything I’ve grabbed from them, however it’s all 50g or more… and thus why I send out a lot of their stuff for folks to try and see.

This is one of my favorite teas, and I’m so glad you enjoyed it!

I didn’t know that. They do have some interesting blends on their website. I’ll have to keep that in mind for future orders. Thanks for putting the sample in the package. I’m so glad I got to try it!

Green teas are my favourite teas but I also enjoy: white, some herbal,rooibos, raw pu’erh, light oolongs, a little bit of black , and a little bit of ripe pu’erh. I have moved away from artificial flavourings and there’s hardly anything left in my cabinet with artificial flavouring or colours. It is mostly straight teas or tea blends.
