Thanks VariaTEA for the tea! It took me a while to get around to trying this one, but I’m definitely happy I did – it was pretty interesting!
So I was totally expecting a floral tea because this is “marigold” and that’s a flower. So, you know, obvious connection. The other Tea Trunk teas I’ve had have been similarly straight forward. While this definitely WAS floral in a sort of perfumey kind of way and did have the grassy profile I’d expect from a green tea there was something else to it as well. It’s actually pretty strongly citrusy!? I mean, I can see the lemongrass in this one and how that would influence the flavour to be more citrus heavy – however I swear I also taste oranges a fair bit and that’s confusing me.
Although, orange or not this was pretty pleasant and a good late night option.
