Got this as a free sample from Rosie Lee’s Tearoom in Canterbury (thanks, guys!)… it’s not helping the overcrowding of my tea cupboard but then again, it’s only a small packet, so I can’t complain :)

It’s got a mysterious aroma, I can smell the rich green tea much better than I can any other flavours, apart from possibly the lime? I’ve rarely had teas with lime in them so perhaps I just can’t recognise it? By the smell the green tea could maybe be a chun mee or something similar, and the colour is a nice rich gold.

Tastewise, this is wonderfully mellow! There seems to be a hint of mint flavour and the apple and lime are equally balanced (nothing artificial or too strong in the apple, either), especially sweet at the start of a sip and becoming a little astringent and fruitier towards the end. Nicely robust and sweet; I like it! Might use it for my morning pick-up once I run out of plain green tea! :D

This is a delicious blend. The soothing aroma of lavender adds to the soothing qualities of this nightcap. If you have trouble sleeping, this is the blend for you!
