This is a “share-down.” I gave my last sachets to my neighbor and suggested he share it with his mom. He had really serious surgery and is out of work for three months and she has been visiting a lot. I had her over for tea once and we drank Carrot Cake Cupcake from S&V, which is definitely a repurchase for me when it runs out. She loved it, so I told him to try this one with her to see if she likes it, and that might be his Mother’s Day gift for next year all planned.
Harney is not listing butterfly pea flower as an ingredient, but I cannot remember this turning blue years ago when I first tried it. Now one sachet will give a gold colored tea and the next purplish blue. They only list one blue ingredient and that is cornflower, but I have never seen cornflower turn a tea this blue. It is a mystery.
It is chamomile forward, but isn’t almost every tea with chamomile that way? I get a little tired of chamomile when it is my only caffeine free option but I have several others on hand right now as well as other good decaf teas, so it made sense to share this one.
