Tea Review: Blend Bee’s Save the Bees

September 28, 2015 in Herbal Tea / Tea Review
BlendBee is tea company that specializes in allowing customers customize their own tea blends with their range of organic teas, herbs and spices. Learn more about the company in my recent interview with the owner, Jamah. After trying a lovely herbal blend she created, I had to share my experience here with you all.

Ingredients: Chamomile flower, Hibiscus flower, Rose hips, Rose buds, Marigold flower, Jasmine flower, Lavender flower, Orange peel, Green stevia leaf, Sweet orange extract, Honey extract

Steep Time: 7 minutes

First Sip Thought: “Sweet oranges.”

Smell: I love when the aroma of a handcrafted tea blend is making its way through the sealed packaging and filling up the air of my room. Like most of Blend Bee’s teas, Save the Bees herbal tea blend does just that. This particular herbal tea blend is quite floral, with hints of fruitiness from the orange peel and extract. The aroma is something I want to bottle up as a spray and keep forever.

Taste: Initially, I was looking forward to trying this herbal tea blend because of the great cause behind it: 20% of the proceeds are donated pollinator.org to help save our bees. It feels good drinking something you enjoy all while knowing that beverage is doing something good. In regards to the taste, there’s a very nice calming effect that comes with this tisane. It is a soothing floral infusion with light citrus undertones. The most prevalent flavours are chamomile flowers, hibiscus and orange peel. The natural sweetness and added honey extract perfectly compliments the rest of the ingredients that are all pollinated by our little bee friends (how suiting!). Of course, with the relaxing qualities of the ingredients used, this herbal tea blend is one I would be more inclined to drink later in the evening/before bed.
