Holiday Blend is my first exposure to Sacred Rose, a company that offers organic herbal teas that blend a wide and unique variety of ingredients. Their Holiday Blend consists of: organic peppermint, organic spearmint, organic cinnamon, organic cloves, organic olive leaf, organic red rose hips, and organic lemon zest. I am familiar with all of these ingredients except for olive leaf, so I found this ingredient a bit intriguing. The olive leaves are large in size compared to the rest of the ingredients.
Since this is an herbal blend, I used boiling water, a generous amount of dry leaf, and a five minute infusion to prepare my tea. The tea is a pale tan-yellow color. The peppermint is by far the dominant flavor in this tea, yet it does allow other flavors such as the cinnamon and cloves to mix in nicely. The mint is more of a sweet mint flavor than a pungent mint flavor, which I very much appreciated. There is a subtle earthy flavor that comes through at the finish of each sip, and I am not sure if this is a contribution of the olive leaf or another ingredient, but whatever it is, I do like it. There are a lot of ingredients thrown in this mix, but they do seem to come together rather well to produce a smooth and refreshing tea that is very enjoyable. Even though it is an herbal and caffeine-free tea, I found it to be brisk and eye-opening as a morning brew, thanks to the mint and spices. I later enjoyed this tea as an afternoon iced tea, which shows that this tea can be versatile and enjoyed at different times of day and as a hot or cold drink. I would recommend this tea to anyone that likes mint teas as well as to anyone looking for a more unique herbal blend.
