Sipdown, and had it as an iced tea for ashmanra’s sipdown challenge. I brewed it hot and then let it cool. The aroma of the loose leaf is primarily floral, with maybe a hint of lemongrass. Once it’s brewed up, more of that tart lemon comes through in the scent. As for the taste, I get a savory, almost earthy flavor that I assume is the butterfly pea flower. That’s definitely the dominant note, with a refreshing lemongrass note coming in at the end of the sip and lingering afterwards. I really have to search for the jasmine, to the point that I think I’m imagining actually detecting it at all. Like all butterfly pea flower teas, this one is a fun color, and the flavor is a nice change of pace from a lot of the typical herbal blends, but I don’t personally love it enough to restock.
