This tea is like the tastiest, plumiest, most perfectly-spiced fruit jam you ever did taste. Now, I could sit here and regale you with how my tastes have been changing to stray away from my heavy, wintry, black tea favorites lately (they have), or how all I want lately is fruity and fresh and bright and vegetal (I have)– but really, all I want to do is tell you how yummy this herbal infusion is.
I couldn’t find much about this tea on St. Fiacre’s website, but let me tell you– the dry leaf here can speak for itself. Big, bright berries pepper this dry leaf, and some of my favorite spices are large, in charge, and immediately visible– spicy cardamom pods, sweet licorice root, fragrant anise seeds– the gang’s all here!
And this blend takes all those unique ingredients and perfectly blends them together. Heavily fruity, but not overly-sweet– the warming spices bring a nice balance to the otherwise sweet herbal blend, hitting all those notes of lightly spiced jam that I just can’t get enough of. Now, if some enterprising tea-drinker would only *actually* turn this tea into a jam for me, we’d be in business. Crumpets, anyone?
Here’s the scoop!

TEA CLUB OVERSTOCK! Missed out on the Aronia Plum Berry from our VIP Tea Blend in December? We have a little bit left that you can try or stock up on more if you loved it. A spin off the traditional sugar plum which is a candy that has a hard outer coating of sugar… think along the lines of the Jordan almond or an M&M type candy. A sweeter tea thanks to the licorice root, almond extract and vanilla. This tea also features Oregon grown aronia berries, plums and cornflowers

The last tea review on my Review-A-Thon. I hope enjoyed the reviews today as much as I enjoyed sharing the good word about these teas!
Herbal teas. I have such a love hate relationship with them. Being one that doesn’t really dig spiced or overly gingerized tea. . . . I have a hard time finding just the right blend for my tastes. Being one that does see the health benefits of certain herbal blends (not weight loss), I’m always looking for blends that may help me with a few pain management situations I deal with on a daily if not sometimes hourly basis.
When I discovered St. Fiacre’s Farm, I was excited. They offered several different herbal blends that didn’t have that overly spiced ingredient list of my arch enemy-red rooibos. One blend instantly caught my eye- Farmer’s Wife Raspberry. This blend consists of nettle, red clover, raspberry leaf, green rooibos, and a few other ingredients- all organic. Whenever I see a blend that has red clover, I’m instantly lured in.
Using the recommended parameters, this herbal brews up beautifully. The tea has a pinkish hue and the flavors are delicate but with such wonderful flavor. With each and every sip, I take away this sweet honey like berry slightly tart flavor that makes me happy. I’m a big fan of green rooibos and love the fact this herbal is the base for this tea.
This herbal blend is smooth berry from the start with this silky honey note that flows brilliantly from the beginning to the very end. I’ve had this tea iced and the tea is just as amazing. I can’t say that I’ve seen the benefits of drinking this herbal tea just because I need to drink the tea on a more regular basis. Sometimes its hard to get in all the tea drinking you want to, manage your day correctly and drink all the water you need to. But for this tea, I really need to get my priorities in order – for being a good for you tea as far as health benefits- this tea is also good for your taste buds!

A tea blend especially for women featuring green rooibos tea with the addition of nettle leaf, red clover blossoms, red raspberry leaf and a dash of the famous elderberry. The Farmer’s Wife Tea Blend is a lovely green tea accented with fruity and floral notes and raspberry hint. This would make a delectable white chocolate raspberry TEA mocha! On the simple side its a wonderful morning tea with a light hint of raspberry to refresh.
