Daughters of the Revolution vowed to “drink tea made from weeds” instead of imported tea. Thankfully they chose herbs, fruits and flowers to make their tea and as a celebration of those early beverages we now present them to you in this beautiful tea!
A CERTIFIED ORGANIC Rooibos blended with lavender the “Herb of Harmony”, rosehip shells, dried red and black currants, rose petals and bilberries. Heady, perfumed lavender notes with a floral, fresh, fruity and mellow flavor. This is a very relaxing tea for consumption any time of day or night. Naturally caffeine-free.
It took me a while to finally taste this tea. But I didn’t hesitate with this tea because I didn’t think I would like it. In fact, I was quite certain I would enjoy it. I love lavender, I love currants, so I felt that this tea had a lot of potential, even though it is a rooibos blend. The reason I postponed trying this tea is because of the name. I wanted to save this tea to review closer to a patriotic holiday … like the 4th of July. But the 4th came and went and I had forgotten about this tea.
So… here I am now a couple of months after July and I figure that now is is as patriotic a time as any. And really, do we really need a reason to celebrate our patriotism? Especially if that patriotism is demonstrated through tea!
This is a delicious rooibos blend. It has a very nice amount of lavender essence, providing a beautiful, heady scent and delicious, sweet flavor without tasting too lavender-y. I love lavender, but it can be a little too much at times. Here, it’s just right. The rose adds a hint of flavor that proves to be very harmonious with the lavender notes.
The elderberries and currants add a tasty berry flavor that is pleasantly tart. That tartness offers a nice contrast to the sweet floral taste and gives the overall cup a nice sense of balance.
This is a very tasty “tea made from weeds!”
