Purchased from the Mediterranean store. One whole wall is dedicated to tea, mostly Ahmad but also a handful each of 5 or 6 other brands. They also have a few neat electric samovars which are a tempting purchase but I don’t have enough people to drink tea with.
These are paper-wrapped teabags in a thin plastic wrapped box. No bueno for retaining freshness and flavor and it shows. The linden is light in flavor, enough so that I use 2 bags per mug.. It’s floral and sweet, a bit musty and I can taste some paper from the bags. No matter how long I steep them, the brew never develops a thicker texture, which hangs around in the light-medium zone. No linden tisane has yet to top Dammann Frères sachets.
Butbutbut, 1 bag of this combined with 1 bag of Celestial Seasonings Country Peach Passion is divine.
Flavors: Floral, Musty, Paper, Sweet
