This tea is also known as Linden leaf tea. I suppose it is a bit of an acquired taste. Personally, I love it. It took me a little while to love it. It does the trick in helping me fall asleep at night. The leaves are big, fluffy and bulky. It’s an airy light tea, so it takes up a lot of space. It’s a bit messy to get out of the bag/tin/container. You have to use a fair amount of leaves. The leaves are fragile and break easy. What I like about this version of Linden is it is not to flowery. I’ve had very flowery versions that are just to much. This one has a nice flower to leaf ratio. The liquor is extremely light. That’s how it should be. Like a white tea. The smell is strong potent but light at the same time. Salty, astringent, woodsy, delicate. It tastes like it smells in my opinion. Sort of like a chamomile but with a certain herbaceous note.

Flavors: Floral, Forest Floor, Herbaceous, Plant Stems, Salt, Vegetal
