Ugh, today is so not how I planned it going. I ended up trying to help my moms friend get Anti virus ware on her computer. Long story short Vista is evil and I will get service pack 2 on there. Got some awesome new Asian ware though from her. She has the coolest things.

Well I had this sample and decided to give it a whirl. The smell of the leaf kinda smelled like earthy dirt; sweet earthy dirt. Or like when you are out gardening flowers…. it is a good thing.

The brew itself is ridiculously blue! I mean it almost looks like it was full of blue food coloring. I can see how this was used for dying.

The flavor is kinda different. It isn’t what I was expecting. It taste a lot like peas, and earthy taste. There is a sweet forla bit, but it isn’t very strong; not like most perume floral teas. Now I don’t like peas….. AT ALL! Seriously I hate them, but this taste kinda good. The texture is very smooth too.

I then put some honey and a bit of orange juice in it (had no lemon). It turned from deep blue to an indigo purple color. I don’t know what science makes it down that, but it was cool. I liked it a bit more. It kinda filled out the flavor and made it taste less earthy. I tried it iced but I like it more warm; it looses that smooth texture and some flavor when it is iced.

Apparently this stuff helps with eyes, which I definitely could use. Ever, since late October my eyes have not been the same. They get itchy, irritated and sore easily now. It’s not allergies. I wish I knew why they do that now, but at least since I got computer glasses they have not been as bad.

Overall I enjoyed it. I would be nice to mix in my herbal teas to help with my eyes.

Somehow I missed out when everyone was drinking this a couple months back, or at least skimmed over the part where this tea’s place on the colour spectrum was mentioned. Wow! The flavours look interesting too.

It was interesting. You would expect tea made from flowers to taste really floral, but it wasn’t really at all. Still good though.

Just love it and might keep as a staple

Really liked it, and makes a above average cup

Is good, but might not have a lot of complexity or wow factor. Is pretty average

It’s ok, but not great. Might need added ingredients or tweaking, and is below average.

Would only if nothing else was available. Would not recommend to someone.
