Decided to brew this tea from derk, thank you!
And as I am curious person by nature I turned on VPN for my university and looked to the databases.

“The decoction of dried fruits of Ternstroemia pringlei (Rose) Standl. (Theaceae), commonly known as “Flor de Tila”, is used in the Mexican traditional medicine to diminish insomnia and fear.” (https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jep.2008.05.035, I have whole article available)

Enough of science, now to find out my own thoughts. I let it steep all time long, as there aren’t any steeping parameters. So, it could be around 25 minutes steep.

It brews lightly pink/red and thus certainly not similar to any Linden (Tilia sp.) tea! Tastes slightly berry like and quite pretty much nothing else. Quite drying aftertaste, I needed a gulp of fresh water afterwards.

Good to know it’s kosher, haha! I would rate after drinking the second bag.

I can’t remember if I have ever had linden tea. Harney sells it as Tilluel and I have long meant to order some since I see it recommended for sweating out a cold. I didn’t know there was a separate tisane made from the flowers! Very interesting.

Martin Bednář

I sent to sender of this tea a bag of Linden (Tilia cordata) flowers. I think she could share a bit with you :)

derk

Yes! I would be happy to send some of Martin’s Czech linden to you, ashmanra.

ashmanra

Neat! Thank you, derk and Martin!

Martin Bednář

ashmanra: I hope it appears on your front porch soon and I hope you will like it! I have try my “saved” amount too; it’s so nice and fluffy!

Having a pot with Kiki tonight, 5 bags to a liter.

It tastes different than having just a mug with a bag, not like rosehips. I did let it steep for probably 15 minutes this time before pouring. It’s actually rather sweet in smell and taste and I’m having a hard time putting words to it. Like sugared berries of some sort and powdery florals, somewhat drying. Warming, very relaxing. Both Kiki and I feel tingly. She mentioned it right as the thought entered my head. Interesting!

Definitely not the linden flowers of English language understanding and an entirely different genus of plants.

Are those the tea bags you sent me or some other Therbal tea?

derk

This is what I sent.

Martin Bednář

Okay, good to know :) I haven’t tried them yet, as I wasn’t sure what is it. Apparently not linden. :D

White Antlers

Probably tilia cordata.

Martin Bednář

I don’t think so, White Antlers. Tilia cordata is a linden and in taste it shouldn’t be berry like

White Antlers

Hmmm. I know it’s a linden but it’s the strongest of all the tilias. Just a guess, of course. : )

Martin Bednář

derk is going to receive a pouch of Tilia cordata from me. Maybe she will share with you as well! :) If nothing, it looks perfect! And I never saw similar tea yet!

derk

White Antlers: it’s not Tilia. Their closest relatedness goes back to the Family Magnoliopsida.
