On The Waterfront
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 rosehip, 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.
Rooibos, Peppermint & Spearmint leaves, Rosehip pieces, Ginger, Roses, Sunflower, Calendula & Osmanthus petals.
HOT TEA BREWING RECOMMENDATIONS:
Place 1 teaspoon of herbal tea for each 7-9oz/200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 5-10 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time, the better the flavor as more fruit and herb flavor is extracted). Garnish and sweeten to taste & enjoy!
IDEAL BREWING TEMPERATURE:100º
ICED TEA PREPARATION RECOMMENDATIONS:
Place 2 slightly heaping teaspoons of herbal tea into a teapot for each serving required. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 6-7oz/170-200ml per serving over the herbal tea. Cover and let steep for 5-10 minutes. Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the tea. Garnish and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed herb & fruit tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted.
