Simpson & Vail National Park Tea Zion 4 oz.
|Availability:||In stock (2)|
This simple yet savory blend brews to a deep red colored cup that has a tantalizing aroma and a creamy fruit and floral taste.
While there are a variety of plants and herbs growing in Zion, there are not a lot of edible ones which made creating this blend challenging. The base "tea" for this blend was easy as I chose the herb Rooibos (red) to represent the red rock found everywhere in Zion. The pine trees at the park, which almost look out of place squeezing through the rocks to grow, inspired the addition of sage, an herb with a similar taste profile to pine, to the blend. Lavender flowers, an herb that thrives in sunny, hot desert (arid), rocky landscapes, were added for their woody, earthy and floral taste. To complete the blend, I added an elderberry flavor that brought the perfect amount of tart, sweet fruit taste to round out the herbal flavors.
How to Brew:
- Brew tea at 212º - steep for 5 minutes
- Rooibos, elderberry flavor, sage, lavender, and horsetail
