From Simpson & Vail

Walt Whitman was born May 31, 1819 to a housebuilder and his wife in Brooklyn. He was introduced to the written word at the age of 12 when he began working as a printer’s apprentice. There, he taught himself to read and devoured the classics. When the printing house burned down, Walt taught for five years until he decided to pursue journalism. The first edition of Leaves of Grass, a rough self-published volume of only twelve poems, was printed in 1855. Whitman would continue to revise and reprint Leaves of Grass until he died. Though his contributions to poetry are considered some of the most important in American history, Whitman did not enjoy success in his lifetime. He spent much of his life struggling to get by with only a meager clerk’s wage to support himself as well as his mother and invalid brother. An 1882 edition of Leaves of Grass finally afforded him enough wealth to buy a house in Camden, New Jersey where he would work on Good-Bye, My Fancy until his death in 1892.

Our Walt Whitman tea blend is inspired by his beautiful nature imagery in Leaves of Grass, especially the poems he wrote about roots and herbs. In one of his memoirs, Whitman describes a man who “express’d a great desire for good, strong green tea.” This blend is an earthier and more mature variation on Simpson & Vail’s Lemon Ginger Green Tea. It combines an unobtrusive green tea base with the earthiness of ginger and eleuthero roots and the sweetness and acid bite of lemon (with lemongrass, lemon peel, and lemon flavoring).

Ingredients: Organic Green Tea, organic ginger root, organic lemon peel, organic eleuthero root, organic lemongrass and natural lemon flavor.

Brew tea at 180º – steep for 2-3 minutes.

SPRING where are you? One of these NY winters will be the death of me. sigh. This is the perfect tea to have for those end of winter blues. It’s so lemon, fresh and bright! Super lemon with multiple lemon ingredients: organic lemon peel, organic lemongrass and natural lemon flavor. I’m not sure what eleuthero root is, but it’s in there too. The green tea is lovely with the lemon. And the ginger doesn’t really make an appearance which is fine with me, I don’t love ginger. Overall, a very tasty, refreshing and fruity blend. Lemon lovers, give this one a try!
Steep #1 // 1 teaspoon for a full mug// 30 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep
Steep #2 // 25 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep
Also, if anyone is a fan of the Bitaco estate teas, Simpson & Vail sell them now. I’ve heard they were hard to get before, so now svtea.com is your source!
