Thanks to Kim, my co-worker, I am sampling tea by a company I have never heard of… Native American Tea Company. Armed with three different flavors I debated over which one I would try first. “Good Medicine” proved to be the winner, BUT after I brewed and tasted I forgot to write a review. Shame… shame… shame! 🙂 Nevertheless, today, with the hope of making up for the missed review, I am brewing and tasting… “Chief’s Delight”.
Composition: Chief’s Delight is an herbal tea comprised of Strawberry Leaf, Myrtle Leaf, Blackberry Leaf, Rose Hips, and Juniper Berry.
Dry Visual: Not a loose tea so my visual appraisal was poor. I really cannot say what this tea looks like.
Dry Aroma: Fruity with definite floral undertones. The smell of roses is very evident.
Flavor: Chief’s Delight is very good. The instructions recommend garnishing with a touch of honey and a squeeze of lemon, if desired. I tried the recommendation and added a dab of honey. The decision… I enjoyed Chief’s Delight much better pure, without honey.
Liquor: It was fun watching this tea brew. The color began as a rich yellow, but after steeping for a couple of minutes transformed into a rich peachy color. You know, the part of the peach’s skin containing more of a reddish hue.
