From Blue Willow

Wu Wei is a complex blend of herbs and spices that creates a flavor best described as naturally sweet, tart and spicy with an orange twist. The name Wu Wei is from the Chinese, meaning “peaceable energy”. Spoken with a different inflection, it means “five flavors”. The overall effect of Wu Wei is relaxing and calming while treating your taste buds to an upbeat progression of flavors. The blend includes Stevia, a natural sweetener; lemon balm, which is said to calm nerves, aid digestion and promote sleep; clove, reputed to be a natural antiseptic and analgesic; relaxing lavender; and licorice root, legendary in Chinese herbal medicine and as an aid to promote digestion respiratory health. These herbs and spices are blended together skillfully with hibiscus and orange zest to create a unique mélange bursting with flavor. The liquor is a rich, amethyst infusion and makes a fantastic iced tea. Consider mixing it with juice for a special treat.

Brewing details are approximate on this one, but you definitely don’t want to oversteep this, as even though it’s an herbal, it quickly gets bitter when forgotten on the counter. Though it’s actually fun to watch this steep—it starts at a light, earthy green, and then flushes pink, and ends up at a warm pinkish-orange that you’d never mistake for a black.

I’m not surprised to find out this has hibiscus—it explains that pink, and it definitely has the tartness. This tea is somewhat fine, though, and the hibiscus is hard to physically see. I guess I’m used to hibiscus blends that include larger petals. It smells predominantly of cloves, but it doesn’t overwhelm the taste; it just adds a nice little kick of spice.

It’s definitely an interesting blend, though maybe not something I’d drink everyday. It was a secret santa gift, but I’m told by my gifter that the salesperson at Tea Lady said it was great iced. I’ll update when I try it.
