Authentic Teas Orient Blend

Leaf Appearance: mostly small, sage green leaf pieces. The roasted wheat looked a lot like Smacks breakfast cereal.
Ingredients:Roasted wheat, organic wild oregano, organic wild thyme, organic wild mint, organic wild elderflowers, organic wild St. John’s Wort flower, cinnamon, cloves
Steep time: 5 minutes
Water Temperature: 212 degrees
Liquor: amber

This herbal teasan had a really interesting flavor profile. It was spicy and sweet with a cooling aftertaste. The roasted wheat added a nuttiness that stayed in the background and let the spice shine. The sweetness of the flowers kept the spice from becoming overpowering. Mixing this many different tastes can be tricky but this blend was very well balanced. I would definitely recommend this tea.
