Share-A-Tea: Dusk

Now that it’s cooling off in the evenings here – it’s even supposed to rain later in the week! – hot tea is more appealing than during the summer heat. I’ve been winding down before bed lately with my Doubleday Sherlock Holmes and this relaxing herbal tea.

Name: Dusk
Source: Tea Runners April 2018 Box (purchased subscription)

Description from Vendor: A perfect after dinner treat, this unique beauty is a smooth, lemony brew with a hint of spice.

Turmeric, ginger, and fennel help the body’s digestion while tart lemongrass rounds everything out to a pungent and delicious finish.

A really nice way to end the day.

My Preparation: Steeped 4 minutes at 212 degrees Fahrenheit, added a small amount of honey

My Impressions: The aroma of this blend, especially straight out of the bag, is odd, and I’ll admit that the ingredients list gave me pause. After steeping, it turned out to be a delicious, slightly-spicy, slightly-lemony smooth drink perfect for the end of the day. Pretty much as promised on the packaging.

The packaging is the usual zipper-sealed pouch that Tea Runners includes in their shipments: a gold foil front with all the important information on a neat white label, and then a see-through plastic panel on the back that shows exactly what’s inside.

Ingredients: Lemongrass, ginger root, turmeric, fennel, and black pepper.

Suggested Preparation: 4-5 minutes at 212F
