Each time I receive a tea collection from The Republic of Tea, I’ve noticed how it’s an undercurrent reflection of my life. When the first shipment of arrived, I’ve just used the last green tea bag only to come home to a box of Green, Ginger Peach, and Orange Blossom teas outside my apartment door. The second shipment, Matcha Green Tea, arrived during March when fresh green blades of grass and tulips were fighting their way through the snow, and the weather was still brisk. When I brought a gym membership to return to working out, the next shipment included their Be Active tea collection. And, the arrival of their easy to make iced teas in the fifth shipment clearly reminded me Summer was around the corner. This month, The Republic of Tea’s new SuperHerb™ Teas are a welcome and needed cup.
What makes SuperHerb Teas different from other herbal teas is how they’re blended with additional flavors to sweeten their earthy and herbal taste. Given the state of my physical condition, I tried a cup of Moringa (mor-IN-ga) Tea flavored with mango. Moringa, or the “Miracle Tree,” is known for its healing properties. The next day, after making a healthy salad with white beans, radishes, tomatoes and mozzarella, we savored a cup of the Baobab (BAH-oh-bab) Tea flavored with mint. By the time this story publishes, we would’ve tried the Jiaogulan (JEE-ow-goo-lan) tea flavored with monk fruit and a kick of ginger.
As mentioned before, the next recipe and story publishes mid-July, because I’m resting (although, I’m walking around my neighborhood block). My mid-afternoon ritual now includes a cup of SuperHerb™ teas steeping in a delicate glass Two Cuppa Teapot.
This story may be sans recipe, but I encourage you try a cup of SuperHerb™ tea.
