I’ve wanted to find any reason to incorporate the things I love into my posts. And fortunately, the iconic and legendary Bob Marley is near the top of that list.
I found out about Marley’s Beverage Company only a few months ago and was looking for the perfect time to write about it. Well the Summer is the right time to talk about anything cool. I didn’t want to wait all the way to February on his birthday to write about it.
I could only hope that a grocery store or the like would carry a product with such a monumental and historic name attached to it.
I am grateful to say that was the case. Even though there were only two flavors available, luckily they were both the bottled teas. And did they taste fun and yes, I’m feeling mellow.
Of course there would be a bias and I was hoping they would taste at least satisfying. It was all that and so much more. I felt great after sampling both. It became more than sampling. I decimated both. Thankfully they were decaffeinated or I’d be bouncing off the walls.
As I’m writing this and feeling so calm, I realize that on the products site, they list the 100% Natural Calming Botanicals and this feels more than a placebo. I feel so at peace.
First up is the Black Tea with Peach, Raspberry, and Passion Fruit. That is quite the trio of fruit. And the trio comes together for a masterpiece of flavors. I felt so good drinking this.
Most important, the tea does not get lost in the shuffle even though these powerful fruit flavors are included. I can tell a lot of soul and a lot of passion (pun not intended) is behind this beverage.
And then we have the Green Tea with Honey. The tea and honey combo is terrific. There’s an even balance that both complement the other so well. I’m relaxing and enjoying life sipping on this one as well.
This is also a tea that should be savored and drank naturally. Neither of these feel like the usual chugging iced teas or cold beverages that other may seem designed to do.
In what is now becoming a tradition with my recent recaps, I opened up the bottled and poured them in glasses so you can get the beautiful tints and shades of both.
How gorgeous do they both look?
I had so much fun trying these teas and talking up how great they were, that I hope I get the opportunity to do so again.
