Need a wake-up call? Then, this tea is for you.

A simple base of Marjoram, it’s STRONG. It’s like I’m literally having a sip of, “Wake The %$&*( Up, BONNY!” as I brew and taste it.

My partner said, “Strong? It’s nice!”

As for me, I’m ready to take on my day.

Brewed 2 tsp in 12 oz of tea for 5 minutes. Water had been boiled and then sat for 20 minutes before using it.

It was tricky to get it to steep as it really wanted to float. I had to push it down repeatedly to get it to really infuse the hot water. I suspect this will be even better re-steeped for this reason.

Also, this looks NOTHING like any marjoram I’ve ever eaten or drank. It looks like fluffy sticks and hairy leaves – white, grey and a touch of pale green in places. It’s truly stunning. Likely why this is imported from Crete.. I was asked, "Have you ever tried Cretian tea?’ Uh… no. Not until now!

Thanks to Teas and Trees for sending me copious amounts of (almost) all their teas to try and test. I didn’t get Love Potion (boo), but I suspect it was removed during the Canada Post process of receipt as the bag was open when I got it.
