Get this great product here: Comfort Tea from Culinary Teas
My husband and I both love loose leaf teas and trying interesting new varieties, so I was excited to try out this Comfort Tea blend from Culinary Teas. They sent me out a sample packet, so the first thing I did was to open it up and give a nice sniff to the loose leaf tea. Wow, what a great blend of sweet and spicy – I’m getting notes of peppermint, anise, and something floral (which is obvious also by looking at the tea leaves, since there are lovely pink petals as part of the mix). The instructions say to use a teaspoon and brew for 3-5 minutes. I used a little bit short of a teaspoon, so I ended up brewing for almost 6 minutes to get it strong enough, but that’s my own fault for not measuring accurately! The resulting tea is a nice light yellow color and has a lovely flavor. I definitely can taste some anise, which is a flavor I love, and that sweet and spicy blend that I sensed from the initial aroma is nicely balanced in the final tea. It’s a lovely way to relax at the end of the day.
