I have been drinking this tea for years (since October 2017) and had no idea I didn’t add it to the database!

I discovered this years ago from an Etsy shop that I’ve continued ordering from ever since then. It’s even one of the few I keep at work (well, kept, when we went into the office, pre-COVID). This one is a seasonal blend of theirs, and I make sure to order a ridiculous amount every holiday season to last me through the year.

I steeped this to boost my motivation for the afternoon after not sleeping all that well last night. My energy started to wane around noon, so this tea was a great pick-me-up — black tea with cacao nibs and peppermint. Fresh and delicious!

I’ll have to try it – I have their Apple Cinnamon (chamomile) and Honeybush Cider and enjoy both them.

So excited to hear someone else knows about them! I also live for their Relax & Renew. I still have a couple unopened bags of this one from last year, so I’ll stock up again, but not quite as much this year. :)

I think they’re the only Etsy tea seller I’ve been happy with. Definitely remind me when you see this tea available so I don’t forget! XD

It looks like they have a website with more teas than the Etsy shop, too:

Courtney

Yes! I actually ordered off their website the last time I ordered from them (just as we went off work from COVID). The same great service as Etsy and I think cheaper shipping (or perhaps free shipping over a certain amount).

I’ll let you know! I feel like they usually come up pretty soon for the holidays. :)

I just checked on a whim and the winter seasonal teas are on the website now! https://newmoonteaco.ca/collections/seasonal

Courtney

Woot! I’ll check them out!

I would ask if there’s anything you want to split, but I guess since we’re in different countries that wouldn’t be cost-effective anyway. :P

Courtney

Haha! Thank you for the thought, but yes it wouldn’t be all that cost-effective. :)

I had this one yesterday — after the Dandy blend and before my ice coffee. This one is so nice to have when I want a herbal tea. Usually I drink this in the evening, but quite enjoyed it in the late morning.

The Great Cupboard Excavation
Untasted teas remaining: 47

So I counted the remaining teas in my cupboard that I haven’t tasted and written about, and there are 47. So I’m not really that close to being done. :P

Chamomile is the only tisane that I don’t use my Finum brew basket for. The annoying little pollen things always get stuck in the mesh and are a giant pain to clean out. So I scooped this into a disposable filter bag to steep instead.

Yum, this is a tasty herbal tisane to have on hand. It reminds me of apple tart or turnovers. The chamomile is strong and sweet with honey notes, and the apple adds a lovely tart fruitiness. There’s also sweet cinnamon, which really makes it taste like an apple pastry.

If you’re a chamomile lover like me, this is a great combination!

The annoying little pollen things are anthers. TMYK.

I pulled this one out to refresh my memory after talking with Courtney about this company earlier. Their winter seasonal blends are available now, and I’m planning on ordering a couple of things so I figured I would see how this is faring.

I really love this one. I will admit, it’s a bit annoying because the honeybush and apple pieces separate (as one would expect). So it can be fiddly determining the amount of apple to put in when steeping it.

The apple flavor is fairly light here anyway, because there is no added flavoring so it’s just up to the dried apple pieces. The cinnamon is delicious and sweet, and the honeybush base really does create the taste of pie crust or crumble for me. So it ends up being a lovely caffeine-free apple pie tisane, or maybe apple crostata or tart since the apple is lighter than the other flavors.

Nom nom nom. Bumping the rating. Do I need more…? It’s only available once a year…

Hahah, this one sounds tasty. The seasonal ones are too good and I spend way too much stocking up on them!

Tonight I made some chicken broth in my Instant Pot. If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you definitely should! It’s basically a combination slow cooker and pressure cooker. So I put a whole chicken in with carrots, celery, herbs, and water and 30 minutes later, I had a fully cooked chicken to shred up plus delicious broth! I’m planning to use the broth for ramen this week, and the chicken will likely find its way into tacos, Buddha bowls, you name it! Anyway, Instant Pot infomerical over. ;)

I ordered New Moon’s Apple Cinnamon chamomile herbal blend on a whim a while ago when I was browsing tea sellers on Etsy. I really enjoyed it, so this time I got a pouch of this tisane as well. I realize now they’re pretty similar, but I love apple cinnamon, so no harm done…

Anyway, this tisane makes me think of warm apple crumble. There’s a lovely oat-y flavor that I assume is coming from the honeybush base. The cinnamon is probably the most dominant flavor, but it’s not candy cinnamon nor is it overly strong. I wish there were a bit more apple, but since this blend doesn’t contain any flavoring I can understand why there’s not a stronger apple presence.

Very yummy, and being caffeine free is a nice bonus. I need more tasty herbals in my collection.

Every time I drink this it is delicious. Heavy notes of oats, brown sugar, real cinnamon bark (but not sickly sweet), lots of delicious honeybush. This is a sipdown, however I enjoyed each and every cup.
