I did just type that out. I always embrace the Summer with open arms. The autumn months are full of positives too. And I don’t have to look too hard to find them. If it’s not a genuine feeling of joy and euphoria than it’s not going to be feel authentic.
This tea I will discuss today is authentic and so much more. It’s that time of year which means the changing of the leaves, different flavors, scents, foods, and of course pumpkins.
There’s going to be a lot of pumpkin-style and related posts forthcoming and I hope you enjoy!
The Harvest Blend Herbal Tea from our pals at Trader Joe’s is the embodiment of what this season is all about. From the packaging, to the beautiful illustrations of animals, and to the scent and taste of the tea itself, this is perfection.
First off, when I visited the pumpkin display at my local store, it’s an in-your-face reminder of the time of year we’re in. But I’ve been seeing it while we were technically still in Summer. I understand the rush but I really don’t. I could have written about this a month ago but I want this part to be authentic as well. Lets all get into the season in a little more sensible fashion.
I took multiple angles of this package as I only feel it’s right. And one on of the sides are all the ingredients listed. And it’s a lot. But it’s a who’s who of what makes this season great. After smelling the bag upon opening, the most noticeable scent is cinnamon, one of my favorite things on this Earth.
After steeping, more aromas start to come alive. I got a great whiff of apple, chamomile, ginger. If my nose and taste buds got carried away I may detect everything included and then some. Nevertheless, this is a winner. As my tea became ready to sip the cinnamon and apple hit me the post. This packs a punch suitable for the season. And since there’s so much involved I think multiple cups can be made from this.
With all these incredible elements you think something would get lost in the shuffle. This is not the case. There’s room for everything here. However, I will say that chicory is not a plant I’ve had much exposure too. I’ll be curious to see if I can trace it in other teas that I come across. I may have to do some further investigating but I don’t want to lose course here.
As I ended my first cup, the flavors were so strong, I had to add more boiling water. And I mean that with highest of praise. This tea cannot go to waste. I’m ecstatic thinking about it. This will be a staple in my sipping repertoire for the reason of this season and beyond. It just tastes and feels so good. The words soothing and comforting come to mind. I feel so happy sipping it, thinking about it, and putting it to words.
And with a price tag of only $1.99 how can you go wrong? This is a bargain for that price and what you’re getting.
I included some wonderful items that reflect the season that has just commenced. I’m enjoying wonderful piece of golden raisin cinnamon bread to complement my cup.
This is just the beginning. I am thrilled to get fall off on the right foot.
Thanks so much!
Trader Joe’s has such good finds!
