Thistle blossom has a slightly fruity taste.

Edinburgh Tea combined it with Dimbula Tea from Sri Lanka. Dimbula teas have a delicate and slightly tart taste. A small amount of tea from East Africa is used to round out the flavor. Edinburgh Thistle Tea has a sharp taste with a smooth finish.

Tea is best tried with lemon but can be consumed black or with milk.
