Here is a tea that is very mild, yet retains complexity of flavor.  Marti tea is a blend many flavors that come together well to create a nice relaxing tea drinking experience.  In the first several sips I noticed more and more subtle flavors.  All combined they lend themselves to a nice cup.  The tea itself is a mix of both large and small pieces, so I would recommend using a tea pouch or fine strainer when steeping this tea.  Otherwise you will end up with a lot of tea at the bottom of your tea pot.

Scared Rose has assured us that they use organic ingredients in their herbal teas, however their tea is not a certified organic product.  USDA organic certification is a long, difficult and expensive process, so there are many tea venders using organic ingredients that do not have this certification.

This tea is subtle and mild in flavor and would be great for anyone looking for a calming herbal tea with a hint of sweet.  The packaging is also very pretty and as marketed by Sacred Rose, would make a nice gift for a lucky someone.

Taste: 3.5 of 5 tea leaves – Decent tasty tea!
Steepability: 4 of 5 tea leaves – This tea requires very little effort.

Katie says:

This is a mild herbal tea; perfect for when you want something warm to drink on a cold day. When I’m cold I never want plain old water so a tea like this is the perfect substitute. Marti is a delicate blend of nettles, red raspberry, rose hips, alfalfa, dandelion, lemon and ginger. Each flavor is subtle but comes together for a nice blend. It works well sweetened or unsweetened just add sweetness to your current taste.

I also tried this tea mixed with some loose green tea that I had to create my own blend. It made a very nice mildly flavored green tea and the herbs lowed the caffeine content even more (green tea already has less caffeine then black tea) and rounded out the green to make it more flavorful. This is a great tea for enjoying on it’s own or blending with green or white!

Temperature: @200 (boiling point)
Steeped: 5 minutes
Served: Nothing added, then blended with green tea

Taste: 4 of 5 tea leaves – Quite a good cuppa!
Steepability: 4 of 5 tea leaves – This tea requires very little effort.

*Please note that we are just as critical of free teas as the ones we purchase. If we get a sample we don’t like we won’t include it on our blog.

Sacred Rose was kind enough to send us samples of their organic herbal tea to review.* Thank you!
