I normally mix it with my blacks, but I steeped it on it’s own for a ‘fair’ note.
Not bad for what it is. Grassier on it’s own than I expected. Absolutely love the smell, and it’s a pretty green. Citrus doesn’t come through as strongly as one would think by smelling it. For me it has an odd little ‘cooling’ effect around the tip of my tongue, not severe. A lot like I would get when I would use Blistex external analgesic lip balm and accidentally get some in my mouth, just a milder effect.
Sweetened (4 packets of Splenda):
Now it’s a bit like eating a flower (There are some little white ones that grow wild around here but I can’t remember the name, but this is like a lot of those). I think I used too much Splenda. I split a normal amount of tea between two cups but use the amount I would normally use for a full one.
Pretty drinkable either way. I like sweet things so naturally I prefer it sweetened, but I wouldn’t throw fits if I were offered it unsweetened as a guest.
Between the grassy taste and the cooling effect, it doesn’t get a whole lot from me, but I still love the smell and the slight lemony taste, and I can’t really fault a tea for being what it is.
