I enjoy green in the early evening. I also like the unique flavor of Lingonberries, usually as jam. I purchased this tea out of curiosity, and found that both my husband and myself really like it. The lingonberries add an interesting little note to the green tea. While I usually buy only loose tea, I can see why this tea is only sold in sachets in order to provide the correct ratio of lingonberry to tea (about 1 berry per sachet). I am going back for more.
This tea is better neat. I am not a fan of herbal teas and this is more like an herbal tea than other greens in my opinion. The lingonberry gives a great sour note with a long, astringent finish. It has a nice balance of sweet and sour. I could see sipping this as an iced summer tea more than drinking it as a winter hot tea but that's my personal preference. With cream the berry note is muted into almost a smooth rolling texture.
Very light, vibrant tea. Not super-potent, but light enough for hot or cold preference. I will buy again.
