Another stunning offering from Spices and Tease. This white blend has a robust citrus bent to it, creating near immunity to bitterness. The aroma of the dry tea is mesmerizing (they tell me some customers use it as potpourri!). The leaves appear slightly darker than some typical whites, and with the fruit the tea brews a delicate sunny color that is just as pleasant to smell as the dry leaves.

I tend to enjoy this tea with dessert or at night time as part of a routine to reduce stress and ‘meditate’ awake, as it were. The flavors are citrus, but reflecting upon your sip you can make out hints of rose and marigold, that add a nice touch so as not to overpower the tea with strong citrus flavors. The result is a very solid white blend that Spices and Tease has perfected.

I have lived and worked in NYC for 14 years, and am currently working and a Neuroscience graduate student in NYC.

I have been sipping loose leaf teas since my days at boarding school, during which I frequented Chaiwalla Tea Room in Salisbury, CT. It so turns out Harney & Sons was also close by, just minutes from my old school and I enjoyed and continue to enjoy both on a regular basis.

Vegetarian (mostly vegan), enjoy cooking, and lots of science.
