From Verdant Tea (Special)

orchid + camphor + sandalwood + juniper

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)

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.

I actually like this particular blend… but it’s mostly because lavender is a primary flavour. I’m struggling to identify the base, but would guess an oolong? and along with the lavender, there’s a very familiar kind of… cinnamon toast-y flavour that I believe is reminding me of (I had to look this up) Chocolate Phoenix Chai (which I once really loved, but which has been gone for a long time). There must be a commonality in the ingredients. Perhaps it’s ginger, not cinnamon? But a very mild, gentle ginger. Whatever it is, it’s delicious and crave-worthy and suddenly I’m really enjoying this tea. Another missed opportunity to stock up (mixed feelings on that, as usual), but I’ll enjoy what I have! This was an unexpected delight this evening!

ETA: I have one more tea brewed up for tonight, but I don’t want to drink it because the aftertaste of this is so nice! Woe is me.

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.
