I found this to taste just like honey, including a prominent natural floral note. It’s really a beautiful honey note and if I were fond of honey… well, geez. The lemon balm is the next strongest taste for me, suspended smoothly in the sweet, nectary body that has a hint of astringency. I think the ginger offsets that green, citrusy flavor of the lemon balm, and while not being spicy, it gives a hint of warmth and earthiness. I can’t taste the lime essential oil at all and I have never had hawthorn which is the first ingredient listed.
While I don’t typically enjoy blends with ginger and lemony herbs, nor do I appreciate honey, this has to be the smoothest, sweetest tisane of its sort.
