As I’ve grown to be a more discerning tea drinker over the years, so has my collection storage improved. But I’ll be honest– while in a perfect world, all of my teas would be stored in dark glass jars, all of coordinating colors and sizes and quirkily labeled, fitting perfectly on a quaint display tray near my favorite honeypot– this is far from my reality.
I have quite a few tea tins I’ve picked up with purchases over the years, a handful of mason jars– but a large percentage of my loose leaf still lives in the bag it came to me in. So when I opened my most recent sample box and saw this beautiful dark, dark navy (almost black!) screw top glass tea storage jar, I squee’d with delight. My Pinterest-esque tea-storage-dreams were coming true!
This jar was just perfectly sized to toss a small bag (maybe an ounce or so)’s worth of tea into. The screw top ensures that it’s sealed right away from air, moisture, light– all the things we know to be detrimental to loose leaf tea over time. And it’s beautiful, to boot! This is one I’ll gladly place out on our countertop in an Instagram-photo-worthy display. Great design and reasonably priced– well done, Infinty Jars!

Rooibos is a hardy leaf and is usually brewed in a full boil, however, due to the herbs in this blend, it is best brewed about 190-200 degrees. Depending on strength desired, you can steep anywhere from a few seconds to a couple mins. Rooibos is naturally sweet and usually does not need sweetener. However, Rooibos is excellent with milk, cream and a little honey!

Yesterday I tried LEMONADE from Jar of Tea and LOVED it.
I know I am getting straight to the point with this review and not building up to my conclusion like I usually try to do but this Flavored Green Rooibos gets straight to the point as well – so it’s only fitting.
If you like LEMON you will like this tisane. If you like LEMONADE please TRY this flavored green rooibos!
The green rooibos background seems to fit the bill with the other lemony flavors here and it makes for an awesomely sweet lemonade taste. I’m sure this would be wonderful iced but let’s just say it didn’t make it that far. It was so yummy it didn’t stay in the cup long.
I will say I LOVE the way the way the jars and labels are decorated from Jar of Tea (even if some tea lovers argue glass isn’t their preferred way of storing or the safest long term storage method). But if you are a fan of different label and packaging or giving as a gift or have a cool/dry/dark place to display this jar – or if you are like me and don’t think it will last very long on your shelf because it’s so darned yummy you can’t resist it – you are going to want to check this one out!
Jar of Tea’s website is lovely and their customer service is top-notch! They have a creative selection of tea and tisanes and for that I am truly thankful.
