Steep & Sip has a goal to help people heal naturally through the benefits of herbs from the earth. They want to have tea that appeals to tea lovers everywhere. They sent me their Citus Verde tea to review.
As soon as I had contacted this company and I had gotten the tea delivered to me, I knew that I wanted to share this with my mom. She loves tea with Lemon Grass or Lemon Myrtle, and lately has been drinking a lot of tea (that she mixes with herbs from her garden) with lemon verbena. So, this is definitely a combined review of both of our thoughts.
Analyzation of the Tea: Citrus Verde
The dry leaves had the loveliest aroma when I had open the tea pouch, and I knew that this tea was going to be a treat for my taste buds. When steeping, I detected orange and lemon aromas that danced around my nose. Then a lovely yellow appearance really helped this tea stand out in my mind. Upon tasting, I noticed that there was a slight sweetness that lingered in the mouth but it is quite subtle. The taste itself was quite light but it was easy to taste each flavor, but I sensed more orange than lemon. I was slightly disappointed that I could not taste the green or white tea. If I had not read the ingredients list, I would have not guessed that green or white tea was in this. My mom did not mind as she loves drinking herbal teas and it reminded her of that. I think this might be a new favorite of ours as it can bring the herbal tea feeling but slightly energizes with the caffeine from the white and green tea.
Ingredients: Green tea, White tea, Lemongrass, Orange Peel, Lemon Myrtle, and Calendula
Analyzation of the Price:
There are multiples ways to buy this tea. The first is a sample which equivalates to 4 cups for $2.99. Other ways include 2 ounces (15 cups) for $12, 4 ounces (30 cups) for $24, and 8 ounces (60 cups) for $40. I love when companies offer sample sizes that allow consumers to try their teas before larger purchases, it just seems like smart business. I think their prices are fair and reasonable for the quality of tea they bring to the table. They provided me with a code to get your sample for $2.50 instead of $2.99 when you use the code “CITRUSTEA50”. The code expires Wednesday (March 4th).
Analyzation of the Packaging:
The packaging was fairly standard, with a tea pouch that mostly kept in all tea aromas. I really loved the branding of the pouches though, the black and gold really complimented each other. They also sent two reusable pouches with their tea that was slightly branded with their logo on the drawstrings. I really liked that they did that because it brought an eco-conscious.
Hope you all are enjoying a lovely cup of tea this morning and finding time to relax and be in the moment! I have a lot of exciting content coming up on the blog, so make sure to stay tuned! Happy Brewing!
