This is an herbal tea sampler that I received from The American Tea room; a specially holiday blend of tea contriving of cranberries, pomegranate arils, cinnamon sticks, star anise, linden blossoms, orange peel and peony petals.
I brewed this tea as instructed; 200 degrees Fahrenheit and left to steep for five minutes. The aromas from when I opened the bag are a true delight to the nose and palette.
Teas’ color: when steeped for the assigned minutes are a vibrant pink; favoring the color of a pomegranate. I take pleasure in smelling the orange peels and how that matches and stands up to the cinnamon sticks, anise and linden blossoms.
This tea is naturally sweet and does not need anything else mixing with it. It is sweet as it is tart with hints of spice through and through.
I was able to get three infusions per one teaspoon in the cup. I like this herbal tea; it is sweetly contrived to infuse the crushed petals.
