Soo…this is a bit of an odd one. I was looking at herbs in a little shop in Pike Place Market in Seattle when I saw this mystery blend labelled “Anti-Oxidant” tea. I was attracted to it because of its dried clover flowers (I collect trifolium specimens, so this was of interest to me. I currently have about 15 species, many of which are edible). Look up trifoliums, they are really pretty in bloom and their leaf formations are very cool. I have one that likes to five me 5, 7, and 13 leaf clovers.
I have no idea what is in this blend. Further, I went ot look up the store online and found the ingredients aren’t listed there either. I’m not actually sure what I’m ingesting.
Anyway, this spells like green dried herbs, dried roots, celery, bay leaves?, hay, and incense. It is extremely interesting. Brewed, I mostly taste unknown herbs/roots and a lot of celery/celery seed. I love celery (rare, I know), but not in tea. I might mix this with some other herbs and make my own blend that is a bit more palatable. I’ll probably add some to the Canadian TTB for others to sample as well. This is really unique and worth trying if you like savoury teas and the smell of incense and dried herbs.
