Part of Fortune from AstroloTea

I am trying the caffeinated version of this blend, which is also available as a caffeine-free herbal.

The instructions call for two teaspoons of leaf per cup of boiling water, but they recommend a four minute steep.  I stuck to these parameters.

The tea is pale and fragrant, more earthy than floral.  I do taste the Assam, and definitely the calendula and probably a hint of rose coming through as a faint, round sweetness. My tastebuds kept expecting licorice root, but the sweetness is much more low key than that.

My daughter said that this tasted like pumpkin to her – not like pumpkin spice, but like actual pumpkin. I can definitely understand feeling a squash vibe from it.

There are a lot of ingredients in this tea that I have never tasted on their own so I can’t say much about those, but I can say that I am not picking up on the jasmine, for those of you who are afraid this would be too floral for you!  In fact, I don’t think of it as a floral tea at all, but rather herbaceous and earthy.

Overall it is really smooth and I think I would enjoy it iced as well as hot. That is a big consideration where I live, as it is over 90F even now in mid-September.

I would love to try the caffeine-free version as well. It would be a nice tea to sip on for a bedtime wind-down.

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about seven years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.
