I’ve been drinking this tea a lot lately, but haven’t gotten around to posting anything about it. I think that this (lack of) action pretty much sums up the tea.

It’s good, not mindblowing. It’s highly drinkable and doesn’t really distract or add anything to what you are doing or eating. In fact, I think that is it’s biggest strength. And for that reason alone I’ll keep it in my cabinet.

Remedy Teas description is spot on. Lightly oxidized? Uh huh, it’s ever so slightly oxidized and actually has a taste more akin to a green tea. Lilac notes? Yep, but very slight. They are in balance with the lightness of the tea.

It’s a very forgiving tea as well. I have forgotten that I was steeping a cup and come back 20-30 mins later and it is still drinkable and pretty good at that. But, at it’s recommended steep time of 4 mins, there is no hint of bitterness—just a nice well balanced tea.

Picked this up a few weeks ago. My first impressions were that it was pretty subtle…too subtle for my tastes, but after several trials, I found that I was steeping it at too low of a temperature. Once I did this, the flavors really came out. VERY strong floral aromas (Lilac, orchid), light body, and a subtle floral, slightly-sweet taste. Overall, a good, balanced tea, but would prefer it to be a touch bolder.
