Kosmic Tea is a US tea company based in Texas, founded by Krishna in May of 2020. Their goal is to inspire a holistic and healthy lifestyle that creates peace, prosperity, and love. With their blends inspired by crystals (I feel like I have been integrating crystals more and more in my reviews), their teas are 100% plant-based, organic, and caffeine-free (Plant-based because they have a line of lattes as well, which come with some black tea to make them caffeinated if you wish). They sent me their Moonstone, Rose, and Chocolate Peppermint Latte mix, but today I am looking into their Moonstone and Rose blends. These blends I widely consumed before bedtime, while working on homework, or when attending a zoom night class. They also sent me a promo code “Teaandme10” for 10% off if you also want to try out their blends! Here are my thoughts:
Moonstone: This tea brews a really nice pale blue color, which was the first thing I noticed about it. The aroma was really gingery when I opened up the jar, so I was quite excited to try it out with the butterfly pea flower. It definitely did not have as strong of an aroma once brewed, but there was a nice spicy herbal feeling to it. This tea really looked too good to drink, as blue-colored teas always do, so I took a sip with much enthusiasm. The leading flavor was definitely the ginger and bits of chamomile with each sip. The lingering flavor in my mouth was slightly sweeter which reminded me of the lemon balm. As I drank in this tea a bit more, I realized that the catnip was the one-note I was a bit stumped on. I used to make Cheerio the occasional catnip tea and I eventually got used to its scent. It was not as noticeable to me in the taste, but quite noticeable in the aroma. This one was very relaxing to sip on while finishing up my homework before bed and probably helped me go to bed after. I noticed my eyes started drooping after a while, but that could also be the case study I was reading.
Ingredients: Lemon Balm, Butterfly Pea Flower, Catnip, Chamomile, Ginger root
Rose Tea: Right away, the floral rose aroma met me from across my desk as I worked on some homework. There was a slight sweetness to it, and I was surprised by how aromatic the tea was and how much of the room it filled up. Honestly, by the aroma of the tea leaves, I was not sure how much I was going to like this tea, but the taste changed my perception quickly. It was sweet and floral, but not in an overwhelming way at all. I think the sweetness came from the lemon balm and the natural sweetness of the rose & hibiscus combination. There was a little bit of cinnamon flavor that danced on my taste buds and the whole blend was just quite satisfying. The rose ensured that the hibiscus did not get too overwhelming and overall, the entire tea had a really nice balance to it. I ended up trying this tea also by leaving the leaves in the small pot, just letting the tea naturally change with time. Obviously, the taste was stronger and sweeter. It was still quite smooth but had a nice extra tang to it.
Ingredients: Rose Petals, Damiana, Passionflower, Lemon Balm, Cinnamon, and Hibiscus
Pricing: Both the Rose and Moonstone tea are $12.50 for their loose leaf tea that comes in a cute half mason jar. I am not exactly sure about the quantity of loose leaf tea, but it did seem like a nice quantity for the price! They also included a promo code “Teaandme10” for 10% off your order, so you can try out these blends with me.
Packaging: Like stated above, the loose leaf teas were in smaller mason jars with separately cut out pieces of fabric to add a unique little touch to it. I felt as if the bit of fabric on the top also helped to shade the teas a bit to help with the freshness. I did not notice any aroma sneaking out, so they were a good choice!
Sourcing: These teas are all herbal so I did not see any sourcing info. But they are all organic!
Do you have any dedicated studying blends? I tend to study a bit more in the afternoon, so my study teas are usually caffeine-free. Let me know in the comments! Happy Brewing!
