I'm not sure if Katya and Olga woke up one morning and BAM! they just knew to use cucumber in a tea, or what. But what I think is that they're pure genius!

This blend is in a pyramid tea bag (sachet) and looks to have a mix of floral leaves and  carrot pieces, but I didn't see any cucumber. It brews a beautiful tangerine-orange color. Nice and bright.

The aroma has Cucumber tart, hints of safflower, some spice and carrot and is slightly pungent.

Flavor-wise you deffinitely catch the cucumber, carrot, spice and safflower. Though marigold is on the ingredients list I certainly didn't catch it. It is slightly sour and clearly vegetal. It reminds slightly of spinach.

The flavor is well balanced, but the aroma is the draw here. Not too bold, not weak, just a well balanced tea. Great for a change of pace and worth a try. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys trying different teas.

    I'm not a fan of flavored teas but I am interested in cucumber after coming across a recipe for iced tea that includes the cool veggie. It's something I'd eventually like to try for myself, once I find the right kind of tea for it to go with.
