Tasters Review:

These leaves are HUGE and look like your basic dried leaf from a tree…a light grey-ish green in color.

This doesn’t really have a scent to it prior to infusion.  Once I started infusing this it start to smell like a cross between asparagus and celery.  The aroma was subtle.  It’s a clear yet vibrant and brilliantly bright yellow in color.

The taste is mellow.  One sip sort of reminds me of a light floral taste and the next sip is a tad reminiscent of a celery or a non-bitter dandelion stem type taste.  Regardless if I am tasting more floral than veggie or more veggie than floral it is mild, mellow, and pleasant and fairly brothy.

I love that this is a new offering from In Nature and a different sort of flower-type tea/tisane.  It’s also said to be a slimming tea!  For a slimming tea it tastes quite pleasant due to it’s mild flavor.

Pretty good, indeed!
