drank Chrysanthemum tea by Sense Asia
6 tasting notes

Chrysanthemum tea is perfect “go to bed” tea. Calming and relaxing even after REALLY stress day. And now I prefer chrysanthemum to chamomile tea.

drank Artichoke tea by Sense Asia
6 tasting notes

Artichoke tea comes from Vietnamese mountains – perfect place for tea and herbs.
It has slight gentle sweet and flowery aroma. But the most important – health benefits of this tea.

why do you say in most of your tea reviews that you taste honey and roses. I find that to be curious especially in artichoke tea and some others. I’ve had some tea with herbs from the North that is savory and I grew artichokes so you puzzle me. The flavor of rose and artichoke is miles apart. Now, floral sweet and savory can be present…and rose is spicy. So, what exactly do you mean?

Bonnie

OHHH! I just looked this up, sorry, it’s not TEA proper but artichoke flower (maybe) hard to tell what the dry parts are really. Kinda strange looking to me.

@Bonnie
Artichoke “tea” is one of the most famous herbal drinks in Vietnam. First time I heard, saw and drunk this tea in Dalat (small, cozy and beautiful town if central part of Vietnamese mountains) – origin of Vietnamese coffee and tea.
About taste and flavor. You are right Artichoke and Rose – completely different and it is strange but true – beverage from Vietnamese artichoke flowers has gentle sweet flowery aroma (including slight notes of Rosebuds fragrance)

Bonnie

Well, since family grows artichokes in California I’ll tell them to dry the flowers and try as tea. Interesting.

I like Vietnamese tea because it is new taste for me. Chinese, Japanese, Indian – are all classic.
Vietnamese tea – tart but with sweet notes and UNBELIEVABLE aroma . I fall in love with this taste. And Shan Tea is one of the best Vietnamese tea I tried.
