I’ve been on a mate kick lately. Do you ever over commit, over schedule, and over estimate what you can actually get done in a day? Like many people, I do all of the above on a regular basis. Fatigue and irritability are almost a given with a crazy schedule and I often turn to maté for that boost of energy I need to get things done. I find that the herbal lift I get from mate leaves me feeling energized and alert without that pesky crash I often experience with coffee.

This is the first tea I’ve ever tried containing gynostemma. I’m really intrigued by this Asian herb. Gynostemma is known for its antioxidant effects that are purported to increase longevity. It was brought to the attention of western world in the 1970’s while scientists were doing research for a new sugar substitute. If I close my eyes, take a sip of Fairydust, and think happy thoughts, I can almost taste a slight sweetness from the gynostemma. Fairydust is also the first tea I’ve ever tried from Rooibos Suite. I’m unable to find much information on Rooibios Suite as a company, but I did find this quote on the company’s website, “Our goal is to provide nothing less than quality tea blends that are unique and pleasing to taste, smell and look at.” That’s really all I need to know.

Fairydust is a beautiful herbal mix of yellow and green with large slices of ginger, dried lemon pieces, peppermint, green mate, lemon grass, and premium gynostemma. The infusion is a cheerful, bright yellow with the aroma of fresh cut lemons. At first sip, a tangy flood of lemony goodness brings my taste buds to life. The lemon essence gives way to a refreshingly cool mint flavor that lingers on the pallet. I could drink this tea all day!

I brewed Fairydust at 212 degrees for 6 minutes. I enjoyed my first cup plain, but I added stevia to my second cup and it was even more delightful with a bit of added sweetness. I highly recommend Fairydust for a kick-start to your morning or for a delicious afternoon boost. I’m off to get things done!
