Lavenderose Chamomint from Old Barrel Tea Co. . . . .

You know that saying– too much of a good thing is a good thing? It applies here.

I was a little worried when I cracked this tea bag open that it would be TOO MUCH. Allll the herbs, am I right? But upon first sniff, I was intrigued. As with others I’ve tried form Old Barrel, this tea was a perfect, equal blend– all flavors present and accounted for, with nothing overpowering or shying away in the flavor. My first sip confirmed what I sniffed to be true– this tea is GOOD, you guys. Really, really good.

It’s light and a little sweet, herbal and flowery but also grounded and earthy. It’s got a little tingle from the mint, and a little almost-vanilla from who-knows-where. Each flavor is represented (just like that egalitarian name might imply), but they all play together quite nicely in the pot. I have to say– something about

Old Barrel’s teas get me every time– the flavors are simple enough that I always underestimate how they might brew up, but once in my cup, I’m always so pleasantly shocked by how fresh, strong, and unusual-but-lovely they are. Another winner from OBTC– and never enough of a good thing!

Here’s the scoop!

Hi there! I'm Mary, a 27-year-old mental health professional living with my fiancé and our quirky kitten in the Midwest! I've loved tea for as long as I can remember-- in fact, I have vivid memory of being four or five in a tea shop and being mesmerized by all the tea flavors and proclaiming that I "was going to be kind of adult who drank tea, not coffee." A stint living (and tea-drinking my way through) London and twenty-some years later, I'm still channeling that sassy four-year-old and loving my tea habit. When I'm not sipping a cuppa, you'll find me reading, doing yoga, traveling, exploring my own city, planning our wedding and experimenting with different healthful and healing foods in my kitchen.
