Thank you so much to Emilie for this sample. It’s a mellower-medium sort of black tea but I can pick up on some fruity notes – probably the grenadine – and the vanilla notes which are lovely. The other Monks Blends I have had – I remember tasting very similar. This one is just as good with maybe a little less of the grenadine. Regardless it’s pretty tasty. Both hot and cold! I’m so happy I was able to try this Monks Blend from this company thanks to Emilie.
Monks Blend is a medium bodied and flavory piquant Ceylon character. Blended with natural flavor oils of vanilla and grenadine which makes for a unique blend. Monks Blend is made with a luxury black tea, sunflower petals, and natural petals.
Background of this tea: First created by Tibetan monks-infused with universal life energy, this tea is a perfect all day treat; sweet and toasty with a touch of dryness in a subtle bouquet. Originally, it is believed that this blend was developed by monks to support their life’s desires, especially the work they did all by hand. Tea is an item that these monks considered ‘good for the soul’. Franciscan monks used to drink this tea to keep them awake during long periods of meditation. It is fare to say that this is an acient and harmonious blend as it is also used by Buddhist and Taoist monks.
