It’s time to pry your eyelids open again – try doing it with an energizing combination of lemongrass and peppermint, while a citrus aroma perks up your nose. Stinging nettle and rose hips give this herbal tea a great taste. If you decide you’re a morning person, it’ll be our little secret.

Taster’s Review:

As I mentioned on Steepster, I had my doubts about this tea before brewing it.  I couldn’t imagine that an herbal tea would make a good “morning” blend.  Night-time, sure!  Even late afternoon.  But morning?  Yeah, I had my doubts.

But, I am doubting this one no more!  While it is caffeine-free, it is very invigorating!  The lemongrass is light and citrusy – offering hints of lemon and lime.  The peppermint tastes crisp and clean, but is not overwhelming.

Overall, the blend is very well-balanced.  No one ingredient overpowers the others, each seems to work in synergy with each other to provide an excellent, naturally caffeine free way to start the day.

This would make an excellent morning tisane for those who need to reduce their caffeine intake – or really, anyone who is just looking for a lighter tasting morning tea.  It has a very bright and vibrant quality that may just make you forget that you need caffeine to start the day.


Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!

Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
