Sweet Melody Tea

description

A divine blend of white tea, dry ginger, and pomegranate seeds, this tea is lusciously sweet and welcoming. Its flavors are fragrant yet restrained, bright in cup yet warming. Resembles a ginger and pomegranate granita, only smoother and with a much mellower character.

The peppermint aftertaste complements the light, flavorful aroma

What a unique and thoughtful blend of flavors. The saffron and peppermint are a unique twist. I add a single rose petal and a bit more saffron to each pot of tea, just to kick it up a little more, but the tea is fantastic as is. Sweetened with a bit of maple syrup or Trehalose, this tea is just divine if you have a sweet tooth. It is one of my faves. Love love love the light twist of peppermint on the finish.

It took me a few tries to get the amount of tea and the steeping time correct. It requires more tea per cup than some of the other teas. Once I figured it out though, I loved it. I taste primarily mint and secondarily lavender. It's a very soothing, calming combination and a relaxing way to start your morning.
