Woo, it’s been awhile since I pulled this one out! I made some to go (in my shiny new IngenuiTEA!) before heading to the dojang to sip before class and then enjoy cool later.

I’m typically not into hibiscus (as delicious as a Starbucks passion tea lemonade is, would you believe that after almost 4 years of working there it’s possible to get tired of them?), but it’s such a light note that it adds a pretty blushing pink color and just a touch of tanginess. The oolong in this acts more as a check for all the tangy and sweet ingredients to keep it balanced, but I’m still asking myself, “Is there really oolong in this?”

This one is light and feminine. It is sophisticated, but it also doesn’t take itself too seriously. I like that it doesn’t have that overbearing flavor you find in many fruity herbal blends, and it’s a nice change of pace for a minimalist like me.

Bio

I am lucky enough to make my living as a martial arts teacher and as a barista. When I’m not training or making cappuccinos, I relish cooking, reading, growing plants, and of course, drinking tea.

I love greens the most… the grassier the better! I also love oolongs and whites. I have a weak spot for anything with jasmine, mint, or lavender.
