Origin: Organic orange peel, ginger root, licorice root, lemon verbena, and lemon myrtle from United States.
Flavor Profile: A beautiful, full bodied balance of earthy orange, slightly lemony citrus sweetness, and subtle ginger heat.
Tea Story: Zing, citrus, spice, sensual, a house-blended favorite. On a hot day this infusion is the next best thing to orange juice. Refreshing beyond description- served hot or cold, the Orange Ginger blend is heaven sent.
Full bodied, strong, and slightly sweet, this herbal is very grounding. We like to sip on this infusion when we need quiet concentration. It is delicious, honeyed, earthy and complex.
Since this blend is caffeine-free, it doesn’t overstimulate. Wakeful reflection is best done while sipping the Orange Ginger. The perfect tea to sip after Yoga. The ginger is spicy warm and stimulates a bit, the herbs and orange are sweet and sooth your tummy, throat, and mind.
Local Acupuncturists from all over San Francisco send their clients to Samovar for this herbal blend with “warming” qualities.
Samovarian Poetry: A strong, spicy, & warming brew. Ginger root, lemon myrtle, orange & mandarin. Naturally sweetened with licorice root.
Food Pairing: Pair the Orange Ginger with your morning breakfast: semolina toast with marmalade; oatmeal with raisins, apple, cinnamon, and flax seed; crispy bacon and eggs.
The Orange Ginger is also a marvelous after-meal sipping tea. The ginger helps fire up the digestive juices and the flavor itself is like a dessert… so why not pair it with dessert?
