Ordered this recently on Black Friday as an Xmas gift for myself. Due to my chronic illnesses, I tend to struggle with sickness in the winter and felt this would be a nice comforting option to have on hand. When I was very little and would get sick, my grandmother would make me tea and flavor it with orange blossom honey. She passed in 2017 and I miss her dearly, so I was hoping this tea might bring back some pleasant memories.

Two separate brewings in and its one of the best decisions I have ever made. The dry leaf smells highly medicinal, with peppermint and some vegetal notes being most prominent. Once brewed, the resulting tea is nicely sweet, with the honeybush and citrus taking center stage in a warm and comforting taste experience. The peppermint is noticeable, but takes a supporting role. The longer the leaves are steeped, the stronger the citrus will be, as well.

I am completely unashamed to say that the moment I tasted this, I was transported back in time to my grandmother’s warm kitchen, where she always waited for me with a hug. This tea will be a mainstay in my cabinet for as long as I can get it.

Flavors: Floral, Honey, Orange Zest, Peppermint, Sweet

200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 15 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Hi! My name is Misha. I’m a young woman living with a variety of chronic illnesses and disabilities and making my way through life with the most incredible service dog by my side. Without Jenna, I don’t know where I’d be.

I have loved drinking tea since I was little, but only got into loose leaf teas when I graduated college in 2015. My fiance, who is a tea lover in his own right, gave me the push I needed to get started, and I’ve never looked back.

I love sweet, decadent and fruity teas. Vanilla, lavender, and honey flavors are my go to in winter, while peach, melon and other fruits dominate my tea choices in the warmer months.

I struggle to enjoy straightforward vegetal teas like most pure green or oolong teas, though I will try them. I’m hoping to expand my horizons as I learn and experience more, too.
