Owens Acres California Gold Fruit Tisane contains dried Persimmons and Pears, Chamomile, Calendula, Sunflower Petals and Orange Peel Chunks. Called a “Tisane” because there’s no actual tea in this.
I used a Japanese Self Fill Tea Bag instead of a traditional strainer, and I steeped it for about 15 minutes in a mug that’s about 22 oz. I like my tea strong, needless to say. Still steaming hot (that water was BOILING) I admired the color and inhaled the glorious steam coming off of it. The only way I can describe the color, other than the fact that its yellow, is by this picture:
Seriously, the sun shining through a daffoldil is EXACTLY how this brewed up, its just the most gorgeous yellow I have encountered in a hot tisane.
Its chamomile heavy, but the Sunflowers and the Calendula mellow it so its even more soothing. the fruit adds a gentle sweetness that is like biting into a piece of fresh fruit, not like eating candy.
I came home after an absolutely cruddy day at work and dove right into this to settle my frayed nerves and upset tummy from said nerves. I have a passion for Calendula in tea because its good for tummies.
Lets look at some of the health benefits of this lovely blend:
Persimmon: I found a whole slew of valuable information here
Pear: Great information about the health benefits of pears here
Calendula: Here, thanks to teabenefits.com
Chamomile: Here, thanks again to teabenefits.com
Sunflower Petals: My brain hurt after reading up on the benefits of the petals of a Sunflower. Sunflower petals contain Carnitine, which is an amino acid, a nutrient that helps the body turn fat into energy. You can buy it as a supplement. I found information all over the internet. If you click on the highlighted word above, it wills send you to a very useful link.
Orange Peel: I honestly had no idea orange peels were good for us, but I found a very interesting article here. I actually bookmarked this website, it was easy to read and had lots of good information on other things.
Now that I am finished researching and highlighting and linking, my cup in empty. I could imagine how wonderful this would be iced. If you need a tea to take the edge off and help you slow down, this bright refreshing cup is a must.
