So why would a cup of this tea have raised the spirits of all those involved? Well, there are a few reasons. The first is Peppermint, which gives the blend a spicy fresh profile. Peppermint has long been associated with relaxation – native tradition holds that it was a great way to soothe muscles and calm nerves – so who wouldn’t feel better? Next are the rose petals that weave a delectable floral character through the cup. Since time immemorial Roses have been given as pick-me-up gifts - we figure including them in an herbal tea ought to have the same affect. Next up is ginger. Ginger’s heat adds a layer of vitality to the blend that is sure to get the taste buds reeling and synapses firing with positive energy. Then there is the Osmanthus and Hibiscus, both flowers known for their pleasant aromas and inspiring flavors. Rounding out the blend are apple and almond, both packed with vitamins and protein to get the body feeling great and the mellow herbal character of South African Rooibos, packed with Iron, Zinc and more.
Hot Tea Method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon of tea for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 5-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). Even though milk and a dash of sugar help enhance the flavor character on this tea, it is perfectly acceptable to consume this tea ‘straight-up’
Iced Tea Method: (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water]. Please note that this tea may tend to go cloudy or ‘milky’ when poured over ice; a perfectly normal characteristic of some high quality black teas and nothing to worry about!
