Dream Tea by Mariage Frères
Tea type: Herbal/Rooibos (caffeine-free)
Flavor: A calming blend of lemon balm, lemon verbena, mint, lemongrass, chamomile, licorice and rooibos tea. Dream tea is smooth and comforting with bright notes from the lemon balm, verbena, lemongrass and mint, while the chamomile and rooibos add a subtle honeyed sweetness. A warming touch of licorice lingers long after first sip.
Drink this tea with: The delicate citrus notes of this tea make it ideal with lemon-scented sweets, like shortbread cookies flavored with lemon zest, cream scones with candied lemon peel or wedges of lemon upside-down cake topped with whipped cream.
Cooking with tea: Make an herbal tea simple syrup—combine equal parts strongly brewed Dream Tea (we like brewing it for about 10 minutes) and honey or white granulated sugar. Bring to a simmer until the honey or sugar is dissolved, cool and use to flavor your favorite drinks, both with and without alcohol.
Try Dream Tea simple syrup with Crémant wine for a bubbly libation. Or, for a refreshing beverage, combine an ounce of tea simple syrup with a few ounces of elderflower cordial, top with sparkling water, plenty of ice and a fresh mint garnish.
A velvety composition of beneficial and aromatic plants with relaxing and soothing properties.
A mellow and delicate balance of the finest chamomile, verbena, lemongrass, balm mint... brightened by a burst of liquorice and antioxidant-rich red tea."
