Purchased a sample pack of this.
Lily of the Valley is my “birth month” flower so I had to give it a go.
Also was intrigued by the lime leaf.
Deep golden liquor.
Smell is fresh and light.
Very smooth – floral.
I would not say it is astringent at all but rather any astringency is replaced with a freshness that must be from the lime leaf.
Its not “limey” but it does give an ever so slight mouth watery feel that one would get from tasting a lime just without any bitterness or sour.
A little on the earthy side.
With all of that said I find it a tad bit boring.
Nothing is making me want to jump up and down with glee or reorder it considering the price but its a nice mellow relaxing tea.
A little sugar in the raw added gives it a nice boost to the natural sweetness but I only added just a little. Personally I do not find this to be “intensely sweet” as in the description. Its far more floral and earthy to me.
I do enjoy the nice cool feel that lingers in the mouth afterward though.
Would be excellent with some mint added to it!
One down side – for me anyway – is that this tea leaves the back of my throat feeling a little dry.
Will update with more experience with this tea – however only have one more pot worth to brew.

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
