drank Lotus by The Persimmon Tree Tea Company
1166 tasting notes

So unlike any lotus tea I have tried before. I called it black jelly beans when I first tried it. That isn’t really accurate but I don’t know what to call it – except yummy. It is kind of licorice and kind of floral. The green base, that is grey-ish looking more than the brown of the picture, is creamy and quite good. The flavor isn’t subtle like some of the teas I have had of late (Nina’s) but isn’t Grrrr in your face either. So different and I really like it.

Having a passion for tea and living in rural America is a tough combination. The nearest tea vendor is 65 miles away. Joining Steepster has completely changed the direction of my tea journey.
