Darn. I did think that this might have been one that I liked, but that it had lost quite a bit of flavour – I am right. It was still okay, but clearly poorly stored. Oh well. One cup left.

Focus #7 is the last 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’ Focus #7 is rich and all-encompassing with notes of temple incense and deep camphor undertones. We pair it with a brand-new Qilan Wuyi Oolong from Li Xiangxi. The Qilan tastes of orchid and sandalwood, blending seamlessly with certified organic Focus #7. Elderflower deepens the blend while lavender and juniper sharpen the aromatics and give the tea a crisp, powerful aroma for focus, clarity and balance.
Ingredients: Qilan Wuyi Oolong, organic elderflower, organic juniper berry, organic lavender, Intelligent Nutrients organic Focus #7 (castor seed, bergamot, orange flower, ylangylang flower, geranium flower, palmarosa, rose, everlasting flower, matricaria flower, clary sage, jasmine)

This isn’t a favorite for me, I think because it’s so lavender-heavy. I don’t mind lavender in small amounts, but it’s really all I could taste here. Leaving my previous rating in case this one-sided flavor is due to age. I think more than likely it’s because so much lavender settled to the bottom of the bag and I’m finishing up the pouch, but I could be wrong.
