Comments of Judges (Great Taste Awards 2021):
”These are excellent quality, fat-budded blossoms clearly picked at the prime time. They give a crystal clear pale gold liquor and a clean aroma on the nose with attractive hints of olive oil. On the palate, it has the immediately recognisable softly herbal character of sideritis and is both refreshing and uplifting. A good quality example of its type.
These flowers respond to a light squeezing with a gentle citrussy aroma. The infusion is mild, with a cooling mouthfeel, and a slightly citrussy but also sweet finish.
A very attractive and well prepared herb with lovely flower heads. The infusion is clear and shiny. The nose is gentle and not astringent at all – quite mellow. The flavour is clean and crisp with its characteristic astringency on the long finish.”
