A deep oatmeal hue is yielded from this brew. The color is a bit darker than most herbal blends and more placid. These characteristics do not deprive the tea from beauty. Peace and serenity is what you will feel as you stare into your tea cup after brewing St. John's Wort Tea by Buddha's Herbs.
St. John's Wort Tea is a blend of the leaf and flower so it makes sense that the scent reminds me of a freshly trimmed grassy knoll. The floral scent isn't too strong, however. The flowers are a faint aroma that is somewhat dulled by the herbal and grassy notes.
Without 2 teaspoons of honey, St. John's Wort Tea tastes exactly the way it smells with a hint of oatmeal. I find it interesting that Chamomile Tea also has this trait.
When I added 2 teaspoons of honey, the floral notes of the tea were accentuated; which was very nice considering that they were still dulled and the less dominant of all the tea notes.
