Time for Tea Please?
When TSA’I asked me to try their Greek inspired tea. I couldn’t say no! Greece is one of my favourite countries and there tea is known for its high quality and as well its health benefits.

(From website) Mellow is a mix of tea and spices that combine the four seasons of the year. It’s loaded with all the good stuff that your body and mind need. The antioxidants present in the tea helps to improve your heart’s health. It’s also a natural anti-inflammatory and is believed to boost your brain function.
I’m always intrigued to try new teas that potential health benefits as it just adds to the sipping experience.
For this blend TSA’I uses: orange , cinnamon, black tea , pomegranate peels, cardamom, dried apple, cloves , coriander and pink peppercorn .
As soon as you open the tea pouch you are instantly hit with sweet aromas of the orange , pomegranate and apple. It’s rich and fruity excentuated by the spiced notes of the cinnamon, pink pepper and cardamom. The black tea and coriander is almost not detectable.
Let’s get Brewing!
The aroma whilst brewing completely changes from its dry state where the fruity tones were the main players it’s now the turn of the black tea and spiced aspects of the tea to have there time to shine. It’s still has it’s hints of orange with a light fruity tang.
Considering that this blend has black tea in it I’m surprised at how orange this tea has brewed. It is slightly on the dark dusky side but still a nice orange haze.
Let’s get Sipping!
First sip and I am really surprised by this tea! This is partly because of the conflict between that of the aromas.
This tea is very much of the flavour of that of the tea when it’s in its dry state. It’s rich in its orange flavour and with the apple and the pomegranate within the blend it’s a like sipping on a hot fruity cocktail.
The use of the spiced aspects of the blend cinnamon, cardamom and coriander aren’t used to over the power the sipping experience but hence it. What I mean by this is , is that they add depth and warmth to each sip. It’s only in the after sip in which you get that slight spiced burn sensation.
This tea does exactly what it says it mellows you. The flavours and sensation that come with each sip of this tea is like a hug in a mug and it’s certainly a relaxing sipping experience.
It’s hard to even believe that there is any black tea in this blend. As you can’t taste it other than the brew being of a slightly dark orange you honestly can not tell it’s in the blend. Which isn’t a bad thing as it allows you to be able to really enjoy all the flavours this blend is made of.
If your looking for a tea blend that will allow you a moment of calm to “mellow” and relax then this is the tea for you.
Happy Sipping 🙂
