I felt a bit ugh after that oily Butter Toffee Cream tea earlier, so I figured it was the perfect time to try this tea, which is clean and light with refreshing-sounding ingredients. This was one of three seasonal teas that I ordered on a whim from Asheville Tea Company after seeing them on Sips by.
This is definitely a very light tea, in fact I wish the flavors here were just a tad bit stronger. The beginning of the sip is very mint and wintergreen-forward with perhaps a hint of haylike white tea flavor. There’s also a nice sweetness. Then near the end of the sip, the evergreen notes of the fir begin to come out, and they linger into the aftertaste. There’s a lovely cooling sensation as well. Not knowing what birch bark or yarrow flower taste like, I can’t comment on them, but there is a soft herbal note behind the lighter flavors.
I love evergreen in teas, so I really like this one. The wintergreen is a fun addition too, minty but different than the usual choices. The white tea is very light in flavor but I think it goes well with these equally light and airy ingredients.
A lovely wintery tea, perfect for December! ❤
