The first thing I noticed about this blend was a large dried calendula blossom in the loose leaf— the whole flower was preserved in the mix! I’m not sure if this was intended, but was a surprise when I opened the bag. With all those jasmine blossoms and calendula petals, it’s certainly a blend that’s easy on the eyes. Upon brewing, the green rooibos and apples are a good combination, both providing gentle sweetgrass and honey notes. The green tea expands on this theme, bringing out the fresh, grassy hay tones from the rooibos. Jasmine is the real star of this tea, extremely fragrant in the dry leaf and the brew, evoking images of standing in a flowery orchard, or having fresh, grassy air blow by. A lovely low-caffeine treat, that was airy, floral, and green.
