Recent Tasting Notes
Navajo tea is very earthy and mild, similar in taste to a chrysanthemum or flowery herbals. This gentle, soothing tea is brewed from thread-like leaves, and is perfect for drinking in the evening when you are winding down.

And a recipe for Navajo Fry Bread to go along with the tea here:
I had a headache and stomach ache last night and my throat’s a tad sore today so this seemed like a good choice to try. I love Steepster ‘cause there’s no way I’d have ever known about it otherwise. It’s nice—it seems navajo tea has a slightly sweet, earthy, grassy character, light and not one-note, that builds as you drink. The mint’s soothing, medicinal tasting. I’m curious how this would play with other teas, if it’d get swallowed up or serve as a nice complement.
This still has a very distinctive flavor. Grassy and haylike with a refreshingly minty aftertaste and a hint of sweetness as it cools. I strongly suggest leaving the bag in while drinking. Sipdown, since the rest is going out in a swap. If I ever get to the point of having a manageable cupboard and only stocking teas I really enjoy, I hope to keep this one in the rotation.

Steepster, I’ve missed you! The past few months have been pretty busy with travel and starting a new job, but it’s good to be back.
I needed a good, uncaffeinated tea for my return. After 20 minutes of ransacking my stash to find this tea, it mostly tastes like victory! A bittersweet victory, though, since this is a sipdown and I won’t be getting more any time soon. It’s still one of my favorite bedtime teas, grassy and soothing. I’m sad to see it go.
I picked up a box of this tea at the gift shop when I went to the Valley of the Gods. It is absolutely wonderful, especially at bedtime (it’s caffeine free). The tea is grassy and earthy with a hint of mintiness. Quite soothing. The box recommends steeping for 3-4 minutes and promises a mild taste. I far prefer to let the tea steep longer for a more robust flavor.
I use 1 teabag in 8 ounces of boiling water. I just leave the teabag in the mug while I drink.
