**A review of Light Up Your Life Tea by Sweetgrass Herbals

Company: Sweetgrass Herbals
Tea Name: Light Up Your Life Tea
Tea Type/Varietal: Herbs
Region:
Steeping Vessel/Amt Leaf: mason jar / loose grassy floral bits
Liquor Color: lightest pinkish to a darker red when steeped longer
Leaf Characteristic: mulch and straw like; very fine with the grassy shoots, which are long and very prevalent in that it is a grassy/floral aroma.

  1. Steeping:

1st Steeping:
Water Temp: room temperature when steeping in jar. And I have tried this tea hot for 1 minute heated as the color darkens. I have seen where it is recommended that herbal teas not be boiled/steeped hot etc and to simply steep it cold/room temperature in a jar. And this is due to the leaves/herbs/plants not doing well in hot or boiled water. I think if you steep it first as instructed and wish to enjoy the tea hot after it is made, one can still enjoy the many subtleties of the tea.

I have enjoyed it as a hot cup of tea; after the fact of making it room temperature with bottled water in a jar. And when it is warm it is almost like liquor in my cup.
Time: 15 minutes

I have just recently started using the Light Up Your Life Tea; it is a delicious blend of tulsi, basil, nettle, oatstraw, red clover, self heal, California tea & stream mint is a bright, uplifting & nutritious tea that is excellent for drinking anytime. It will promote mental clarity & focus, supply the body with deep nutrition, gently strengthen digestion and natural elimination processes, and energize mind & body with its nutritive properties.

I can attest to this tea as being a wonderful delight; that is fresh and fruity with a naturally sweeten palette in that the way the basil and tulsi intermingle brings delight in this cup of tea and its aroma is very aromatically floral. It truly is a pleasant tea which is meant to be enjoyed all day long.

Some attributes are: uplifting, bright and I feel it does promote mental clarity as claimed. I find as I sip /inhale the intoxicating liquor and swallowing of the tea that it does something to me. I feel good.

2nd Steeping:
Water Temp: room temperature
Time: 15 minutes

The tea’s color is not as darkly red as it is lighter pink and still has that wonderful floral aroma and it is sweet smelling as well. I taste more of the clover and the tulsi and the slightest hint of mint. I think that the cup I had before was mintier and yet the clover seems to have stolen the show in that the palette was tingling and alive…peppery even; and not unliken to paprika; there was a zestyness to it.


Overall tasting notes:

Classification: Year, and region of production; Product of USA 2012 (13)

Cup’s characteristic: uplifting and bright cup of tea; promoting mental clarity with an alert feeling.

Liquor color: pink rose to darkly red when steep for more than 15 minutes.

Taste: tea is very sweetly and zesty from the Tulsi and red clover intermingling with the mint playing fiddle; it is like the name…streaming along is the mint and the other ingredients.

I am saying that I have truly enjoyed this tea. It is versatile (hot or room temperature; think of wine but warmed; or do I mean fermented/pressed even).

It is recommended that herbal teas (plants/flowers/edibles of the plants) not be cooked or boiled since they will not withstand. It is best to steep the tea longest if desired than after straining / removing of the leaves/plants etc. and tasting the tea; if still wishing to warm it than do so. A way to explain or understand the concept would be to do the reverse of when making iced tea. In that the tea is boiled/cooked and left to cool and ice and lemon / garnishing is added to it when serving. So with these teas, do the opposite.

One could say; well, if you prepare sushi raw, would you then cook it if that is your preference? it is room for thought but I lack rooms. My experiences with tea is unlike other tea reviewers or perhaps not. No one has ever agreed or find me irresistible…simply irresistible; but not a song. People mock me/ young and old.
