Recent Tasting Notes


What Greece lacks in tea (Camellia Sinensis) it makes up for in Greek Mountain tea. Sideritis (ironwort) grows wild in Greece. The nuns of the Monastery harvest the tea along with berries and other fruits to dry and sell to help build funds. It was an amazing place to visit. The leaf is a mix of yellowish greens and light greens. I only was able to get a few blackberries out. Too tired to dig out more. Jetlag sucks. The flavor is mild and pleasant. A very slight citrusy hint lined with herbaceous notes. It makes for a very nice evening tea.
