From Verdant Tea

Awaken #1 is the first in our line 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 tea. The finest perfumers and the best tea farmers come together to create something new, thrilling and – of course – wholesome.

Intelligent Nutrients’ Awaken #1 is an uplifting mix of pure, certified organic essential oils of orange, lemon, grapefruit, lavender, lemongrass, tangerine and black pepper. This aromatherapeutic blend is formulated to get you going when the going is rough. We infuse the blend with Master Zhang’s Hand Picked Tieguanyin, grown using traditional chemical-free farming, and accent simply with a touch of cardamom, lemongrass, and chrysanthemum.

Ingredients: Master Zhang’s Autumn Harvest Tieguanyin, Lemongrass, Chrysanthemum, Cardamom, Intelligent Nutrients Awaken #1 Elixir (castor seed, bergamot, orange peel, lemon peel, spearmint, grapefruit peel, lavender, peppermint, pepper seed, tangerine leaf, vitamin E)

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.

Dialing down my rating after a few lackluster steeps. I’ve found this tea to be wildly inconsistent. Sometimes it’s floral. Other times I get a blast of cardamom or the lemongrass flavor will dominate. It seems the taste of each brew depends on the pieces of flavoring and how many you them you scoop up.

I wanted something different this morning, something lighter. This turned out to be a nice choice. I haven’t had this in a while. It was stuffed in the back of our tea cabinet. I steeped it longer and at a lower temperature and it came out flavorful, not too light at all. It’s not something I would purchase more of but it’s a nice cup to have every once in a while.
