Luna Tea Blend from Moongleam Tea Shoppe

Hello, tea-ple! I type this today during a Waxing Gibbous moon while drinking Luna Blend by Moongleam Tea Shoppe, an up-and-coming new company.

Luna a mash-up of what I consider to be a “morning” profile and an “evening” profile. It has bergamot like an Earl Grey; and it also has chamomile, lavender, and basil like a sleepytime blend.

I’ve never seen tea profiles collide exactly like this. I had everything in discrete boxes. I had tea carefully assigned to the clock.

But October isn’t the season for keeping the light and the dark apart.

This is the start of fall, at the doorstep of winter. This is the year’s equivalent of a Witching Hour. This is creepy-crawlies, ghosts, zombies, the undead! Down is up! Up is down! Chamomile is in the Earl Grey!

This tea is really sweet. It’s like when a kid decides to be Little Bo Peep for Halloween. She could choose to be something more evil, flashy, or daring; but she decides she wants to do this very adorable thing instead.

I could easily see this being a morning pick for this in-between time. This tea has sweet and summery notes with just enough caffeine to brace oneself against the impending winter.


Here’s the scoop!

This classically crafted tea is one of the first blends I ever created.
Smooth bergamot, coupled with chamomile, black tea, lavender, and basil, gives this tea a punctuating freshness.
I have always loved Earl Grey because of the Bergamot in it, so I tweaked it to make it even better!
An ounce makes about 11-17 cups of tea, depending on how strong you like it and the weight and volume of the tea itself.

Emerald City from Oh You Tease

This tea is exactly what I needed today!

Work has been pretty stressful so I needed an easy going tea that would be forgiving (if i oversteeped) and wouldn’t taste bitter if I had to leave the brew to cool. I quickly grabbed this one, Emerald City from Oh You Tease, an Etsy Tea Shop that I instantly fell in love with.

Brewed up with freshly prepped water and allowed to steep for about 4 minutes, this tea yielded an absolutely gorgeous take on a mint green tea blend. Strikingly on target with the perfect amounts of roasted green tea buttery richness with a hint of vegetal tones and mint. Refreshing, cooling, all you need in a mint green tea and more. I love how both ingredients are allowed to shine and one flavor isn’t overshadowing the other.

Very well done. Simple yet brilliant. Exactly what I was looking for today. I’ve infused the same leaves at least 4 times and I’m still loving the flavor!
