My samples from Nature’s Tea Leaf came today! What perfect timing, since I have a bit of an upset tummy and could use a soothing herbal blend. I was really happy to find this on their site since I’ve wanted to try the Teavana blend with the same name, but it has pineapple. What is up with that? Do they just add fruit to all of their blends to make them heavier or something? But here it’s just lemon, sage and lavender.
I happen to love sage teas, though I know they are a bit divisive. I have 2 others, Bergamot Sage (Rishi) and Ginger Sage Spa Blend (Verdant), but this one is quite different because of the lavender. It reminds me of Sleepytime, if that tea was slightly savory! The lavender and sage are an absolutely perfect match, the sage tempering the floral nature of the lavender while adding a nice mellow effect.
The lemon brings it together with a bright pop of citrus and adds another dimension. It’s a simple blend where every ingredient gets a chance to shine, and nothing is overpowered or overdone. It’s a perfect after-dinner or before bed tisane, relaxing and soothing!
