My life has been pretty hectic lately with March Madness just wrapping up, weddings, and the PBA tour being in town, so I was feeling really run down this morning. Then I remembered that I had some David’s Tea Some Velvet Morning in my cupboard. Just the pick-me-up I needed. First off, this tea is organic. Love that. Secondly, it contains a blend of green tea, orange peel, lemongrass, dandelion root, some berries I’ve never heard of and orange oil. This makes for a very tasty cuppa! The green tea and lemongrass make this tea soft and velvety (hence the name?) to drink, and the orange peel and oil add a bright citrus quality to wake you up. I also find this tea mild and very easy to drink. It may get strong if steeped longer and I’ll try that on my second steep, but in this case its mild nature works well for me.
Overall, I LOVE this tea! It’s organic, so I feel good about drinking it. Then the ingredients blend to make a soothing, yet bright tea that goes down easy. In fact, I think I’m feeling better already and I can see pilates workout in my future.
Taste: 5 of 5 leaves – Outstanding! A MUST try.
Steepability: 3 of 5 leaves — this tea is a bit delicate, but well worth the effort.
