Citrus Lavender Sage from Teavana. . . . . .

When I sit down to write reviews here at Sororitea Sisters, I like to ask myself, “what does this tea remind me of?” … and usually a memory, a story, a flavor will follow. I’ve gotta be honest with you guys– this year doesn’t really remind me of anything. Or rather, it reminds me of lots of things?

It’s a little like lemonade when it’s iced, but it’s got an earthy, almost slightly bitter aftertaste from the herbs. It’s almost like a green tea, in how light and fresh it is, but not entirely. It’s almost a little bit like walking into a hippie general store– you know, when the waves of patchouli and kombucha hit you as soon as you cross the threshold? But it’s not, of course, because it’s fruitier and springier than that.

Truly, this tea is pretty unique. Fresh citrus, herby sage and floral, sweet lavender combine in a way that’s totally new to my palate, and I like it. A hot cup makes for a great nightcap, and cold (though sometimes a little bitter, as mentioned) is refreshing and sweet. I’m willing to bet it’d make a fantastic Arnold Palmer, which transports me right back to warm & sunny summer days. Which remind me a little of this tea. 🙂

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.
