Time for Tea Please?
It’s that time of year when only certain types of tea are hitting the spot and thanks to the Rare Tea Co. I’m able to sip on there Lemon Verbena and Lemongrass.

Lemon Verbena and Lemongrass
I love the packaging that Rare Tea Co. Uses the tin makes perfect for reusable purposes but the packaging is also bold and effective. It certainly makes me want to try it.
Let’s Get Brewing
For this blend the Rare Tea Co. Uses Vibrant Lemongrass from Sri Lanka and Malawi which has been blended with soft, smooth Malawian Lemon Verbena.
As soon as you open the tea pouch as opposed to the tin you are instantly engulfed with distinct lemony aromas of the lemongrass and the verbena.
For brewing this blend I’ve decided to make my own tea bag with a reusable cloth tea bag.
Whilst brewing the aroma doesn’t massively change from its dry state. Other than it’s not as sharp/ harsh in its smell.
As to sort of be expected with a tea blend that contains lemongrass and lemon verbena the brewed liquid is of yellow colouring.
Let’s Get Sipping!
First sip is just wow!
This blend is super punchy and full on with its flavour. The lemongrass and the lemon verbena are a perfect match . They continuously work together to provide flavour and contrast.
The Lemongrass packs a super punch full of flavour but the smoothness of the Lemon Verbena adds soothing tones to balance the tang that you can get from the use of lemongrass.
This blend is tealicious sip by sip and it’s perfect for a flavoursom tea that soothes sip by sip and life as we know it calls for a much needed moment of calmness. Thanks Rare Tea Co. For making a blend that does exactly what it says on the tin!!
Happy Sipping 🙂
