The more tea-drinking years I get under my belt, the more difficult it is to find a flavor like I’ve never had before, especially when it comes to herbals. Now, don’t get me wrong, tea friends– I have lots of excellent, interesting blends filling my cabinets. But when something is as simple as this peppermint lemongrass blend from Old Barrel Tea Co, I don’t necessarily expect for it to knock my socks off.
Consider me proven wrong.
As far as I can tell, this herbal from Old Barrel isn’t chemical, nothing added or artificial, just herbs in all their glory– but it is jam-packed with flavor. The mint is tingly and fresh, the lemongrass bright and sweet. Blended together, it’s the perfect cup to settle your stomach after a heavy dinner, to wake you up in the afternoon slump, or just to sip when spring feels oh-so-far away (just me?! Cabin fever is SO REAL, you guys). Sometimes, simpler really IS better– and in this case, that definitely holds true!
