The leaves are budding on the trees. The air is alive with the scent of the world waking up from its cold sleep.
The flowers bloom in the fields, and in your cup!
Spring signals warmer weather is coming. Most of us prefer it that way. Just like anything else tea has its seasons.
Nothing says spring tea like a fruity fragrant floral brew!
Iced or hot this bouquet of tea has the perfect sip for the perfect spring day.
White Rose by Tea Fiori
White tea, rose petals
This low caffeine tea is like drinking a rose garden. It’s a soothing a fragrant blend of white tea and rose petals. The roses are so heavily integrated, it looks like potpourri! It smells like it too. The makers of this tea were inspired by the world’s largest private rose garden, the oseto Botanico Gianfranco e Carla Fineschi in the Tuscan countryside.
And it shows!
A light tea with heavy floral notes, it is perfect for a morning cup, while wrapped in a shawl listening to the birds chirp to the sunrise.
Berry Fields Forever by Chariteas
Organic Hibiscus, Organic Rosehips, Elderberries, Raisins, Flavoring, Blackberries, Raspberries, Sour Cherry, Black Currants, Blueberries, Grapes
This is possibly one of the most fragrant teas out there. To my delight this caffeine free blend of berries, and flowers had whole dried berries among the leaves. You can smell it a mile away and it tastes like a cup of berry pie.
With a tart fruity taste this is a great tea to have hot or pour over ice once you finish planting your hydrangeas in the garden. Both refreshing and uplifting with its strong flavor profile it’s a spring staple must have!
Chariteas lives up to their name too. They give back. This company focuses on sourcing tea directly from its origins, from places little known or heard of. They also work with rainforest tea alliance tea growers and are involved in the reforestation efforts in the Philippines.
La vie en rose by AESTHETE
Organic Tulsi (Krishna, Rama, Vana), Organic Rose Petal, Organic Caraway, Organic Fennel
This tisane (herbal drink that doesn’t contain tea, but is prepared like tea) contains ingredients to aid in stress relief, digestion, anti-anxiety, and healthy skin.
Since la vie en rose is caffeine free, its also the perfect nightcap.
The flavor is subtle and relaxing with a hint of rose.
AESTHETE likes to take a minimalist approach to their tea and I can respect that. Their aesthetic is on point with their brand and they support their local tea farms.
