Authentic Teas Mountain Melody

This herbal blend is comprised of organic wild oregano, ­organic wild thyme and organic wild elderflowers. The dry leaves looked and smelled like something right out of the spice rack. According to Authentic Teas’ site, it was used in ancient Armenia to promote respiratory health. I made this tea in my Breville One-Touch Tea Maker with 212 degree water for five minutes. The liquor was deep gold in color.

This tea was herbaceous and spicy. The elderflowers added a bit of sweetness and kept it from being too hot to handle. Being from New Jersey, the land of pizza, I was craving a slice thanks to all of that oregano flavor. I’m always cautious of tea that makes health claims but it did temporarily clear up stuffy, allergy prone nose. I would definitely recommend this tea.
