I love green tea. I felt something missing whole day when i does not take tea. I felt tired and uncomrtable.

Have we gone too far? Perhaps, but considering the culinary appeal of savory and sweet artichoke we thought it married particularly well with a nice green base tea. Complex and completely different, this tea will please a sophisticated palate looking for something unusual.

I decided to try a sample of this tea because I love artichokes and it sounded interesting. I’m not really sure what to make of it. It smells peachy and tastes a bit grassy. Sometimes you get a hint of artichoke at the end. I would recommend others try this as a sample first. Very interesting and unique.
Flavors: Artichoke, Grass, Peach
I would love it if someone could explain how the dry tea smells like a cherry and a grape had a baby in a field of newly mown grass.
And the wet leaves smell like more of the above, plus cranberry.
And the actual tea tastes like sweet grass. I was really expecting more of a veggie broth kind of taste.
I’m fascinated and mildly dismayed at the same time. Sometimes I buy berry flavored teas, and there’s nary a berry to be found. I get a green tea with asparagus, and suddenly I’m in fruit city.
Not what I expected an artichoke tea to taste like! It’s more like peach with a bit of floral flavor. Even more surprising, I’m enjoying it despite not being a big fan of sweet or fruity teas. Somehow artichokes’ sweetness doesn’t annoy me like other sweetening ingredients.
Giving serious consideration to restocking when my sample is gone. This could be handy for those times when I have a wild impulse to drink fruity tea, and am considering purchases that, in my heart, I know will disappoint me like all the rest.
I made three infusions of this. The first one was just so-so. It had more of a bitter note than I was expecting. I liked the second brewing better – it was a little less bitter and had more of the umami of the 100% artichoke tea I’ve had before. The third infusion had very litter flavour – the second was by far the best and the most interesting.
