This is such a deliciously unique tea!
The fragrance of the dry leaf is amazing – I can smell the citrus tones, a light amount of spice from the ginger, and the strawberry! Together, these scents create a mesmerizing aroma.
The flavor is light and crisp. The white tea base has a delicate vegetative taste. It is clean and fresh. There is a soft, barely-there mouthfeel and a light astringency.
The fruit flavors are nicely balanced and appeal to the palate with sweet, tangy and tart notes. The ginger is not overwhelming here and adds just a hint of zesty spice. I don’t remember having tasted oatstraw in a tea before, so I don’t know if I’m tasting it now or not, but, oatstraw is very beneficial to health and I’m glad it’s there!
As I sip, I can feel the stresses of the day melt away. I can even feel the tension in my shoulders lighten a little! This is an amazing tea, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to try it.
