As I mention in my full-length review of this tea (see it here: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/01/31/whole-leaf-green-tea-essence-sunflower-eden-grove/ ) … I found the ingredient list here confusing. The Camellia Sinensis with Red Pigments? What does that mean exactly. I mean, I know that Red Tea can mean either what we know here as black tea, or it can also be referring to rooibos. But I’ve never known it to have anything to do with green tea.
As far as how it tastes, it tastes like green tea with sunflower petals, and that’s what it appears to be. The sunflower adds a perky “sharpness” to the cup. The green tea is sweet and light.
An enjoyable cuppa … even if it was confusing.
As far as bagged/sacheted teas go, I have to say that these from Eden Grove are some of the better ones that I’ve tried.
This particular blend has a robust black tea flavor with a light, lemon-y/lime-y sort of flavor that perks up the flavor just a bit. The lemongrass isn’t a strong essence, although the flavors do continue to develop as I continue to sip.
