If you ever want to throw a tea party for the little princes or princesses in your life, check out Bellasia Teas. They have a great line of herbal teas that will engage any little ones taste buds along with a marvelous book about an adopted princess who realizes its up to her to have a Happily Ever After.
The reasons behind the book are heartwarming and pure. The story really is amazing and I would highly recommend picking up a copy for the little one in your life. I’m going to review the book separately so I don’t want to give too much away but let’s just say, this book made me smile. . a lot.
The tea line offered ranges from Mystic Melon to Dragon Berry to Fairy Sunset. The majority of the teas do have a fairy tale like inspired name, which I love. Mystic Melon was the first tea I had to try.
Being not such a huge fan of fruit tisanes, I wasn’t sure if I would like this but honestly, this tea had me from the very beginning. Huge chunks of apple, pear, goji berries, and honeydew along with a few other herbal inclusions. Brewed up with water at about 212F and allowed to steep for 5-7 minutes, this tea delivers a sweet melon flavor that I adore.
The melon flavor is the major note that you do get and it is sweet but there is this welcomed tartness that contrasts the melon quite nicely. I can see how kids would gobble this tea up in a second. The tea blend does steep up into this gorgeous pink brew that just captures your heart.
As much as I adored this tea brewed up hot, cold brewing this tea overnight really delivers this gorgeous melon treat. The melon has more of a melon flavor and not such a sweet melon while the rest of the ingredients help bring in that contrast yet again.
All in all, this tea has won my heart and completely surprised me. Even after drinking tea for so long, every once in a while you drink a tea that completely takes you by surprise and you wonder-what have I been missing by not drinking fruit tisanes.
From the adorable tin packaging with dragons, fairies, and unicorns, to the gorgeously illustrated book, to the wonderful flavors-Bellasia Tea has won my heart over again and again.
Highly recommend this tea company for any tea party for your little princes and princesses!
