#Fanatic Friday: Walt Whitman’s Green Tea Blend from Simpson and Vail

We at SororiTea Sisters adore our friends at Simpson & Vail so that is why we thought we would dedicate today’s posts to all things Simpson & Vail! We hope you enjoy our reviews and find some goodies to try for yourself! ~The SororiTea Sisters

Walt Whitman’s Green Tea Blend from Simpson & Vail is the tea of the moment here at Sororitea Sisters!

Walt Whitman’s Green Tea Blend from Simpson & Vail is inspired by his beautiful nature imagery in Leaves of Grass, especially the poems he wrote about roots and herbs.

In one of his memoirs, Whitman describes a man who “express’d a great desire for good, strong green tea.” This blend is an earthier and more mature variation on Simpson & Vail’s Lemon Ginger Green Tea.

A few things I noticed right away about Walt Whitman’s Green Tea Blend from Simpson & Vail was that it first and foremost smells like green tea and ginseng right off the bat – both dry and wet. Then when I poured the water on top of the leaves to infuse there was a natural froth that swam on top in the infuser pot. This fascinated me

The color of the post-infused liquor is quite glowing. That is the best way to describe the color of tea that Walt Whitman’s Green Tea Blend from Simpson & Vail produces

If you are a fan of herbal tasting green teas Walt Whitman’s Green Tea Blend from Simpson & Vail will be right up your alley! If you are a fan of ginseng – Walt Whitman’s Green Tea Blend from Simpson & Vail might just be your cuppa!

Walt Whitman was born May 31, 1819 to a housebuilder and his wife in Brooklyn. He was introduced to the written word at the age of 12 when he began working as a printer’s apprentice. There, he taught himself to read and devoured the classics. When the printing house burned down, Walt taught for five years until he decided to pursue journalism. The first edition of Leaves of Grass, a rough self-published volume of only twelve poems, was printed in 1855. Whitman would continue to revise and reprint Leaves of Grass until he died. Though his contributions to poetry are considered some of the most important in American history, Whitman did not enjoy success in his lifetime. He spent much of his life struggling to get by with only a meager clerk’s wage to support himself as well as his mother and invalid brother. An 1882 edition of Leaves of Grass finally afforded him enough wealth to buy a house in Camden, New Jersey where he would work on Good-Bye, My Fancy until his death in 1892.

Our Walt Whitman tea blend is inspired by his beautiful nature imagery in Leaves of Grass, especially the poems he wrote about roots and herbs. In one of his memoirs, Whitman describes a man who “express’d a great desire for good, strong green tea.” This blend is an earthier and more mature variation on Simpson & Vail’s Lemon Ginger Green Tea. It combines an unobtrusive green tea base with the earthiness of ginger and eleuthero roots and the sweetness and acid bite of lemon (with lemongrass, lemon peel, and lemon flavoring).

Ingredients: Organic Green Tea, organic ginger root, organic lemon peel, organic eleuthero root, organic lemongrass and natural lemon flavor.
