“Tea Shirt- tailored refreshments”. It will be a dark day when we finally run out of tea puns. Thankfully, I think we are a long, long way from the teapocalypse.
Okay, admittedly some have much more of a gift in the pun tea-partment than I do
FINE I’m done!!
When I saw the ingredients for Tea Shirt’s Reiki blend, I got super dooper scooper excited. An invigorating, fruity tisane WITHOUT peppermint! The stars hath aligned! Peppermint and I are not friends. Reiki’s ingredients read like a laundry list of all of my favorite fruits and herbs (oh yes sweet sweet lemongrass), so sampling this tea for review was a no-brainer.
As the tea steeps, I’m getting these wonderful scents of lemongrass and hibiscus. Just what the doctor ordered! The brew has a pinkish-yellow hue, so I know the blend is not completely overpowered by hibiscus like many tisanes are. All of the other fruits and herbs seem to have been added in relatively equal proportions.
The result is beautifully complex, not a compliment I give to very many tisanes. The lemongrass and stinging nettle shine as the stars of this tea, while the apple and orange flavors really make the infusion sing. Reiki is delightfully refreshing, delicious, and not only do the fruit flavors taste whole and natural, but the herbs present in this tea are incredibly potent as well.
This blend is wonderful! I only wish I had more
