From Verdant Tea

Attune #3 is the third in our line of seven premium scented teas.

Our partnership with Minneapolis-based Intelligent Nutrients comes from the shared philosophy that what you put in your body should be sourced with integrity and made with care. They grow many of their botanicals on their farm in Osceola, Wisconsin, where they have their own still for making essential oils. Like us, they seek to challenge industry standards to promote a healthier and higher quality lifestyle.

We are excited to work together to offer truly premium scented teas. The finest perfumers and the best tea farmers come together to create something new, thrilling and – of course – wholesome.

Intelligent Nutrients’ Attune #3 is blended up as a focusing, stress-reducing aroma, full of soft minty notes and balanced with rose, geranium, vetiver and vanilla. The deep crisp forest notes of certified organic Attune #3 transport us to the wild forests of Yunnan where Silver Buds Yabao is harvested. The woody, spicy Yabao evokes a forgotten temple, accentuated with notes of holy basil, sandalwood, and red clover. This deep, complex and balancing blend transports us out of the everyday grind to a beautiful and tranquil place.

Ingredients: Silver Buds Yabao, organic Red Sandalwood, organic Red Clover, organic Juniper Berries, organic Holy Basil, Intelligent Nutrients organic Attune #3 (castor seed, peppermint, bergamot, lemon peel, rose geranium, vanilla, rosemary, lavender, anise, ravintsara, pomegranate, vetiver root, cardamom, tangerine leaf, clove leaf, cinnamon bark)

Western Brewing
Use 4g of tea ( 1T ) in 6-8oz of fresh-boiled (205°F) filtered or spring water. Steep for 30 seconds in a brew basket or equivalent. Enjoy many infusions. Add about 20 seconds with each steeping, or to taste.

Iced Tea (Cold Brewing)
Use about 4 grams of tea for every 12oz of water. Combine with room temperature water in a covered vessel and refrigerate for 8-12 hours. Enjoy!

Iced Tea (Flash Chilled)
Use 1TB (5 grams) of tea in a 6-8oz vessel. Steep for 30 seconds with filtered boiled water. Fill a martini shaker (or equivalent) with ice, then add brewed tea and shake until well-chilled (usually 10-30 seconds). Pour out through martini-shaker top over fresh ice in a new glass and serve.

I feel a little guilty about not having tried most of the Intelligent Nutrients teas before canceling my Verdant blends subscription. Of those I have tried, some were really good and others were just okay. For the most part, they’ve been enjoyable. I suppose the main factor in canceling was that I was wanting a little more variety. The teas have been different, but each one has contained some type of oil or fragrance and I guess I’m just looking for something with a more diverse selection. I may completely change my mind after working my way through these teas, but I do feel I need to try each one to be fair. So I’m starting with this one today.

This blend is called Attune. The word, by definition, means to bring into harmony or to make aware. The Intelligent Nutrients “aromatic” or oil certainly does have several ingredients or flavor/scent notes. The blend smells good – it’s very fresh and has the cooling quality of mint though not necessarily the fragrance. The tea itself is beautiful with fuzzy mint green buds closed tightly like tiny cocoons. There are also a few berries in the mix. I checked the list and they are juniper berries which apparently aren’t berries at all but are cones. Interesting. I’ve never had these before but I’m interested to see if they have that woodsy, piney scent/flavor. There are bits of rust-colored wood chips and some seeds that look kind of like fennel as well.

I let my boiling water cool for about five seconds then added the tea. The buds seemed to float just on the surface until right before I pulled them out at thirty seconds. The liquid is very light so hopefully enough flavor will come through. The buds look much the same – still shiny, still intact. The fragrance is a bit subdued and the liquid doesn’t have a smell at all. There isn’t really much flavor here. Perhaps I should have rinsed it first? I downed the first cup pretty fast so I can go ahead and start a second cup. Hopefully it will be better.

Second Steep
6 ounces water + 212 degrees + 1.5 minutes

This cup tastes just like the first – bland and watery. What am I doing wrong here? I don’t think I’m going to try steeping this a third time. I’m just not getting any flavor.
