Greendale Herb & Vine
First off I did in fact typo this tea’s name, but should be able to fix it soon.. This review will be short and sweet as the tea itself was surprisingly straightforward.
I picked up this tea at a local farmer’s market during the summer, as the seller swayed me with a pre-brewed sample to taste. Smelling the leaves I instantly am presented with a minty smell and a feeling of summer, a few herbal undertones wafting up underneath.
Due to a lack of supplies, I am forced to make do by placing a nice heaping teaspoon in a mug, gently pouring over the hot water, and then after the allotted time, strining the tea through some cheesecloth. The fresh tea presents a minty, summer style scent, as before, with herbal undertones. Only now I am envisioning a pleasant summer morning where the fresh dew is dancing across fields of green.
I then taste the tea. I am brought to a small farm, family owned, surrounded by fresh fields of green. The dew is trickling from the plants, and the family just rising to go about their daily routine. This tea tastes just as expected from the scent, with soothing mint being the prominent player in this tea, bringing forth a sense of homeliness and relaxation.
I quite enjoy this tea, though it does not bring anything particularly amazing or exciting to the table. This tea is very consistent, from scent to taste, and is a very soothing experience overall.
