This tea has a very smooth body with a delicate flavor profile. It has a wonderful aroma and is very pleasing on the palate. I also like the distinct aftertaste that it leaves. Highly recommended!

Another interesting surprise

I ordered this tea as a sample and was immediately hooked. I agree with the other reviewers - this tea is incredibly well balanced and has many interesting and - for me - unexpected twists and turns in its flavour profile. It starts refreshing and light but has enough weight to linger longer. There are refreshing zingy, citrussy aromas that are supporter by some richer notes. This is a lovely tea that I will need to reorder very soon but this time a more substantial quantity than just a sample!

A fabulous light crisp tea

Although I normally like very strong teas, this light tea was extremely good. It was very fresh, had a slight citrus note, and was well rounded. I was sad when I drank it all!

Very Nice

I was surprised by the well blended citrus and licorice flavors. I enjoyed this tea very much. The mint aftertaste was very nice not over powering. The dry aroma is very grassy

Refreshing and flavoursome

This was a real surprise! Particularly I found the colour of the liquor unusual for a spring tea - so dark, rich and almost tangerine colour. A agree with the other reviewer, the flavours blend seamlessly and the level of astringency is really low, which I personally only like in small doses. I very much enjoyed the delicate fruity aromas on the nose and the surprising richness. A very well rounded and refreshing spring offering.

Characterized by exceptional delicacy

Best Served : Afternoon, Evening, Dessert Tea.

Per the Teabox particulars, a decidedly springtime palate with predominant flavors of citrus, kumquats, and licorice. The grassiness here—an attribute I generally dislike—is pleasing because it blends seamlessly with the other flavors rather than dominating them. The mere hint-of-mint finish accentuates the freshness in a very satisfying way. Recommended for those who like a light touch in their teas. Purely personally, I need quite a bit more of the brisk.
