I had to first look up Mugworth in the dictionary to understand more about the herb I was drinking here is what it says:
“Mugwort is a common name for several species of aromatic plants in the genus Artemisia. In Europe, mugwort most often refers to the species Artemisia vulgaris, or common mugwort.”
The first sniff when you close your eyes, like I do you get a vision of a fresh cut field, it’s not vegetal but there is an aroma that reminds you of a fresh cut field.
The light pale color lets you know you are drinking a tea that has a very slight processing. It has a medium flavor that is not overbearing and not vegetal, which surprised me. You know when you stick that piece of alfalfa in your mouth it reminds me of that sort of flavor. Gentle, soft, buttery and still a mild field taste.
I liked this tea and despite it’s appearance it’s a lovely addition to any tea collection!
Tea makes you smile!
Till Next Tea!
