I had surprise mail from gmathis yesterday and it contained a generous sample of this tea! (Where do you get those pouches for the tea? Much nicer than what I use.)It was drizzly and completely overcast all morning and I got up rather early, so I decided not to wait but to have this for breakfast. I have read on aromatherapy sites that orange and citrus scents are the best for battling depression and lifting mood, and today’s weather is a real mood squasher – although the slight cooling is welcome.
Oh my goodness, the dry leaves smell amazing! This was definitely the right choice for today!
The steeped tea smells equally delicious and the taste is reminiscent of Nina’s Fete de Versailles. Bright citrus but not an astringent base tea, all made lightly creamy by a hint of vanilla. This goes on the “gotta find it” list.
Thank you, gmathis!
