The Persimmon Tree sent this for review. I will be writing a full review on my blog in the near future but I couldn’t wait. The smell is licorice – like black jelly beans. I love black jelly beans. The aroma turns floral in the sip. Then this wonderful light fresh creamy dreamy green leafy tea kicks in. The aftertaste drifts back into floral and finally black jelly beans. This is not like the tea bag lotus teas I’ve tried. This is Freakin’ Awesome. This won’t appeal to everyone but I love it.
