Orchard Delight Tea from Owens Acres…SO GOOD.

Fleur d'hibiscus

Hibiscus Flower

I got my Owens Acres order yesterday, and I got absolutely lovely things, of which I will discuss at length when I have more time, but I couldn’t wait to blog about her Orchard Delight Tea.  I got home froom work and brewed up a nice steamy cup in  my ingenuiTEA Teapot and when I poured it into my cup the smell made my eyes open wide.  Fruity, with a hint of something warm, there’s chamomile in it but I swear I scented a tiny touch of ginger.

One of the nifty things about the ingenuiTea Teapot is that you can watch your tea steep.  Floating around with the flower leaves were chunks of apples, pears and apricots (which I ate after my tea was through steeping) and I mean REAL DRIED CHUNKS.

I strained my tea into my mug and took a healthy sniff:  I got a ton of hibiscus, which is always a winner for me, a touch of the chamomile and all that wonderful fruit.  I like my tea strong, it brewed up like a thick burgundy wine, for some reason I thought of mulled wine.  Hmmm.

The tea is blended perfectly.  There’s not too much of one thing, and everything comes together in an absolute beautiful flavor.  This tea isn’t loaded down with ingredients, there’s the dried Pears, Apricots and Apples, then Hibiscus Flowers, Lemon Verbena and Chamomile. Its warming and so very soothing and delicious.  It was perfect before bed, hot, but I could imagine it cold over ice with a touch of sugar (I like sugar in my tea, brings out the flavors) as well.
