Light in color but not in scent! Before and during the steeping process the scent is like nothing I have ever smelled before. There is so much going on here! It’s Chamomile but better…minty but with other influences jumping in…herbal but not medicine-smelling…even smells a little fruity or even like a vegetable garden at times. Pleasant to look at and smell. The taste is refreshing yet calming. I really enjoy this one…maybe even so much so that it’s my new fave nighttime or bedtime tea.
