Taster’s Review:

I am not a big fan of Echinacea, but I realize that it is a helpful herb, especially when feeling under the weather.  So, I like to find teas with Echinacea that I can drink and actually enjoy.  Something that doesn’t taste overly herbaceous or medicinal, something that isn’t off-putting.

This tea fills the bill!  I don’t know if it’s because there isn’t very much of the Echinacea or if it’s because the combination of the ingredients melds together in a very pleasing way, but I’m inclined to believe that it’s because of the combination of ingredients.  The lemongrass and lemon verbena offer a soft, smooth lemon-y taste that is sweet with a slight tingly tart note.  Together with the white tea, it tastes creamy and is a bit reminiscent of the flavor of a lemon curd.

Overall, I find the cup to be a very pleasant experience – soft, sweet goodness, hints of spice (think white pepper), with prominent citrus and creamy, buttery notes.  A deliciously different tea that helps support a healthy immune system.  Sounds great to me!
