cocoa + orange + malt + clove + angostura

Restore #6 is the sixth in our line of seven premium scented teas.

Our partnership with Minneapolis-based Intelligent Nutrients comes from the shared philosophy that what you put in your body should be sourced with integrity and made with care. They grow many of their botanicals on their farm in Osceola, Wisconsin, where they have their own still for making essential oils. Like us, they seek to challenge industry standards to promote a healthier and higher quality lifestyle.

We are excited to work together to offer truly premium scented teas. The finest perfumers and the best tea farmers come together to create something new, thrilling and – of course – wholesome.

Intelligent Nutrients’ Restore #6 is deep and spiced like Angostura bitters. It feels supremely comforting and complete. We pair it with our most popular tea, Laoshan Black from the He Family in Laoshan Village. Laoshan black is deep, malty and chocolatey. With a chocolatey black tea and certified organic spiced aromatic essence, we complete the mix with clove, orange peel and licorice root for a beautifully sweet and comforting tea.

Ingredients: Laoshan Black Tea, organic clove, organic orange peel, organic licorice root, Intelligent Nutrients organic Restore #6 (castor seed, orange peel, grapefruit peel, cardamom, lavender, bergamot, patchouli, cinnamon leaf, matricaria flower, vetiver, everlasting flower, ravintsara leaf, rosemary, oregano, geranium flower, cinnamon bark, marjoram flower, black pepper, thyme)

Western Brewing
Use 4g of tea ( 1T ) in 6-8oz of fresh-boiled (205°F) filtered or spring water. Steep for 30 seconds in a brew basket or equivalent. Enjoy many infusions. Add about 20 seconds with each steeping, or to taste.

Iced Tea (Cold Brewing)
Use about 4 grams of tea for every 12oz of water. Combine with room temperature water in a covered vessel and refrigerate for 8-12 hours. Enjoy!

Iced Tea (Flash Chilled)
Use 1TB (5 grams) of tea in a 6-8oz vessel. Steep for 30 seconds with filtered boiled water. Fill a martini shaker (or equivalent) with ice, then add brewed tea and shake until well-chilled (usually 10-30 seconds). Pour out through martini-shaker top over fresh ice in a new glass and serve.

This has an incredibly malty, savory aroma once steeped. Before steeping, it smells mostly of clove. I over-steeped and probably used too much tea so this is just a touch bitter but not at all like I was expecting. I can taste the coves slightly but it’s mostly the tea. I should mention that the leaf on this is beautiful – stiff and tightly wound into curlicues. I’m tasting a little artificial sweetness about midway through the cup. It reminds me of licorice. There may be some in the blend or in the oil that was used. This tastes somewhat smoky too and I’m wondering if I mistakenly labeled it as bitter at first when in actuality it is smoke I’m tasting.

I received this from the Verdant Blend Club for April, and this is also available on their website. There is a lot going on in this tea due to the many ingredients, but the sweetness from the Laoshan Black and licorice root are ever-present, with the herb flavors (from the rosemary, thyme, and oregano) coming through more toward the middle-end. The typical chocolaty notes from the Laoshan black tend to meld very well with everything, and there are some very subtle fruity notes here from the orange peel, grapefruit peel, and bergamont… but only a hint. Some sips are sweeter than others, especially as this tea cools. I’m really enjoying the licorice sweetness which tends to hit me in the back of the mouth/throat, while the other flavors are more ‘forward’ on the toungue/mouth.

I found this to be fairly complex and unique and I recommend you try it if you are a fan of licorice sweetness, herb flavors, or if you just can’t get enough of Verdant’s Laoshan Black variations.
