Starting my day off with an herbal blend is not how I usually go about my day, but recently the SororiTea Sisters received a generous sampling of Immerse tea bags and I was eager to try these. Immerse only produces organic herbal blends so let’s see how this one goes.
The first one I grabbed was Morning Booster- an herbal blend of roselle (hibiscus) and ginger. This is not a combination I would have ever thought to put together but I was really intrigued. Per the recommended steeping parameters on the box and the tea bag tag itself- this tea should be prepared with freshly boiled water and steeped for 4.51 minutes. .. yep! 4.51.. .I’m not going to lie, that extra 51 second note is making me chuckle this morning.
After my water was prepped, I went to add in my tea bag. The first thing I noticed was how dusty the tea bag is. Not like dirt dusty but herbal dusty. The tea bag has quite the natural organic feel.
The tea bag may have steeped more than the recommended 4.51 minutes but I am quite delighted in this delicious mix of ginger and roselle. The tart and spicy combination with a touch of sweetness really provides this lovely contrast and I found myself already draining this cup and setting out to have another. The ginger is spicy so be warned but it is a good spicy and not a I can’t breathe sort of spicy. The tart/sweet tones that the roselle is bringing in really helps to balance out the tea.
Overall, I’m really impressed with this tea. The packaging is gorgeous, the attention to detail is spot on, and the price is right. I’m not sure that I would replace my morning caffeine with this blend but I could see myself drinking this after lunch to get over what I call the lunch wall.
Thank you Immerse for the samples! I will be sending these off soon to my fellow Sisters but before I do that, I’m off for another cuppa!
