drank Tilleul by Harney & Sons
21 tasting notes

Linden flower tea usually has a very delicate flavor, so I knew not to expect anything bold. While I like other teas from Harney (including their herbal Yellow and Blue, which is wonderful), Tilleul is disappointing. Good linden flower teas, delicate as they are, have a slight, naturally honeyed taste. I didn’t find it here; I didn’t find much flavor or scent. I used a lot of the dried tea and brewed several times, but that was the impression every time.

I grew up drinking herbal tea, in many cases tea that I picked myself: chamomile, linden flowers, lemon balm, thyme, and hibiscus teas were an important part of my childhood experience. I learned to appreciate their delicate flavors. I am not new to black or green teas, but somehow, I had found them boring. My introduction to flavored teas—oolong, black or green—was a few years ago, and I’ve been hooked since then. Today, I still enjoy herbal teas. I’ve always been very sensitive to smells, so to me, the balance between flavor and aroma is very important. Tea is one of those small luxuries in life that allows us to combine our olfactory senses with taste.

I tend to like: herbal teas, “dessert” teas with vanilla, chocolate, or other flavors, and floral teas.
