Better Morning Blend from Two Leaves and a Bud

Tea Information:

Leaf Type:  Herbal

Where to Buy:  Two Leaves and a Bud

Company Description:

It’s time to pry your eyelids open again – try doing it with an energizing combination of lemongrass and peppermint, while a citrus aroma perks up your nose. Stinging nettle and rose hips give this herbal tea a great taste. If you decide you’re a morning person, it’ll be our little secret.

Taster’s Review:

As I mentioned on Steepster, I had my doubts about this tea before brewing it.  I couldn’t imagine that an herbal tea would make a good “morning” blend.  Night-time, sure!  Even late afternoon.  But morning?  Yeah, I had my doubts.

But, I am doubting this one no more!  While it is caffeine-free, it is very invigorating!  The lemongrass is light and citrusy – offering hints of lemon and lime.  The peppermint tastes crisp and clean, but is not overwhelming.

Overall, the blend is very well-balanced.  No one ingredient overpowers the others, each seems to work in synergy with each other to provide an excellent, naturally caffeine free way to start the day.

This would make an excellent morning tisane for those who need to reduce their caffeine intake – or really, anyone who is just looking for a lighter tasting morning tea.  It has a very bright and vibrant quality that may just make you forget that you need caffeine to start the day.
