I haven’t posted any tea reviews for a couple of weeks because… I haven’t been drinking much tea. hangs head in shame

Anyway, I’m back home now, and drinking tea again, so… here we go!

This is one of the teas I got when I was in Queensland. It tastes like… green tea with dill. g

Actually, it’s pretty good. It has that aniseed/licorice sort of edge to it that you’d expect if you’re familiar with the flavour of dill, plus something lurking around the edge that’s almost minty. The dill flavour doesn’t overpower the flavour of the tea because they’ve used the seeds instead of the plant – definitely a good move, since the flavour of the seeds is softer and more subtle.

All in all, this tea balances out the competing flavours nicely. I’ll definitely be drinking more of this.

I have a friend who went to Queensland Uni! [I assume you’re talking about Australia, right? Seeing as how…you’re from Australia.]

No real point in that comment, I just got excited. Anyway, welcome back!

My mother went to Queensland Uni, too – but about fifty years before your friend did. g

Glad to be back! :-)

I’m not a huge fan of licorice, but the dill definitely sounds intriguing! I have a few basic, ‘flavorless’ white teas, and with the addition of some dill…perhaps I’ll have to try an experiment! :-)

@kaiz Yay, you’re here! :-) The licorice-like flavour isn’t hugely powerful. It would probably work quite well with a basic, mild white – I wouldn’t try it with pai mu tan or anything with too distinctive a flavour of its own.
