Harmony Tea from Mellow Monk. . . .

It’s been a little stressful in my personal and professional life lately and today I just needed a tea to bring everything into perspective for me. Every once in a while I’ll grab a tea and just sit down, tune everything out, and just enjoy what I’m drinking. . .and that is exactly what I did wtih this tea-Harmony Tea from Mellow Monk.

Harmony Tea is a genmaicha that is sadly sold out right now. I’ve always been a huge green tea fan and the first time I had genmaicha, my love for green tea grew even more.  The wonderful buttery richness that this tea offers just relaxes me and really gives me that “zen” moment.

I brewed this tea up according to the recommendations that were provided and in just a minutes, I had myself a lovely pale yellow liquor that I knew would help me move my day along.

This green tea is perfectly named Harmony because it really delivers a perfect harmony of flavors. The rich buttery smoothness with a subtle hint of vegetal towards the end of the sip.  Throughout is a lovely roasted toasted goodness that makes you warm to your toes. Oh the perfect tea to enjoy when you need to wind down and really take a moment for yourself or share with others.

I can sometimes have pretty stressful work days and its nice to take a moment to realize that everything will be ok in the long run and this tea is helping me get to that point. The calmness this tea instills in you is something that if you are a green tea fan, you have to try!

Sometimes the simplest flavors are the ones that truly hit the mark.

Here’s the scoop!

Leaf Type: Green Tea
Where to Buy: Mellow Monk

Harmony Tea™ begins with a premium sencha, similar the artisan’s Monk’s Choice green tea, to which is blended just the right amount of flavorful roasted brown rice, to strike a perfect balance between the nuttysavoriness of the rice and the rich, herbaceous artisanal guricha-style tea, so that one flavor doesn’t mask the other. Even the guricha’s overtones of melon and berry are preserved in the overall flavor profile.

Leaf Type:  Herbal

Where to Buy: Positiviteas

Tea Description:

“The Blue Lady” is a delicate cup of manners at your fingertips. This little lady is equipped with the four light flavors of Blueberries, Lavender, Lemongrass, and Nettle. Usually, these four ingredients pack a bit of a punch – except for the Lavender. With the Lavender acting as the base, the other three ingredients are added to compliment, but not overpower the lightness and mildness of the base. All together, this brew is full-flavored, but it still keeps the courtesy to not overwhelm your mouth with strong flavors.

Taster’s Review:

Floral teas have been a craving of mine of late, but lavender and I have really never been friends.  But I always try it knowing that one day I would find a blend with lavender that I would love.  And that has happened!

Positiviteas is an Etsy Shop that offers amazing blends like Pucker Up and Sunny Afternoon that make you want to impulse buy some tea.  So many wonderful different blends and I want to try them all!

Blue Lady is a blend of blueberries and lavender for the most part.  There is a distinctive floral perfume like fragrance to the dry leaf mix.  I brewed this up as an  herbal, pulled up my big girl pants, and tried a new tea that I wasn’t sure I was going to like.

Huzzah! This tea is amazing! Thank you Positiviteas! This tea is delicious, refreshing, and soothing.  One of those cozy and charming tea blends that really sings to your soul and settles your nerves.  One of those blends you kick up your feet and let the delicious flavors take away the stresses of your day.

Sweet slightly fruity floral notes are what you get in each sip.  There is a floral perfume flavor but not one that has a bit to it like other teas.  This tea is graceful with the lavender, giving you just a hint of that floral note.  I’m quite surprised at how much I adore this tea.

For me, this tea would be a fabulous stress reducing tea that you indulge in after a hard day.  This tea could very easily be my new evening tea blend!
