For a blend that is primarily floral in appearance, this tea was surprisingly crisp and complex. It wasn’t perfumey but definitely had a strong floral element. The flavor most closely reminded me of fresh sage, a little sweet and vegetal. The white tea gets clobbered a bit and isn't really detectable but then it seems like it is only there as a base in the first place. The aftertaste was cooling with an almost tingly mouthfeel. This was a perfect mellow out for the night tea. Lavender always has that affect on me. I would definitely recommend this tea.
