Chartreuse Tea Review

Chartreuse TeaLast weekend I visited Greenfield Village with my family. It is one of our favorite places to visit and we go often. They were holding a special Fall Flavors event along with a Farmer's Market. One of the vendors in the market was Chartreuse Tea. They are a made in Michigan company that features organic, caffeine free herbal teas.

I was first introduced to their teas while shopping at Whole Foods. The bright, chartreuse tea tin caught my eye. For an end of the year teacher's gift, I gave my daughter's two teachers a tin of the Peaceful Bliss blend. Highly appropriate I thought.

Anyway the Chartreuse Table at the Farmer's Market was a loose leaf tea drinker's dream. They had about 10 of their teas ready for sampling. They were all so good. I got to try Hibiscus Quench, Pride of Africa, Citrus Sunrise, and Mountain Green.

Hibiscus Quench

Check out the rosebuds!

I brought home three of their teas. Hibiscus Quench is made with organic hibiscus, organic rosehips, organic lemongrass, organic orange peel, organic spearmint, organic lavender, organic red rose petals, and organic stevia.

I love the rich color.

Mountain Green is made with organic green rooibos (my preference over red rooibos), organic orange peel, and organic lemon myrtle.

They also gave me Solomon's Seal, which I have not tried yet. It is Solomon's Seal Root and organic brown rice. I have not tried it yet, but I wonder if it is like genmaicha tea.

I highly recommend you try their teas, especially if you are looking for a caffeine free, herbal tea that is also organic too. You can find their tea at Whole Foods stores in Michigan, Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, and Wisconsin and online at Amazon.com.

Deckan Tea

Over the weekend my husband and I went to a local farmer's market and were delighted to see a local tea company there.  They are called Deckan Tea and they are based in Southfield, Michigan. They had a number of loose teas for sale as well some pyramid tea bags in canisters.

I love getting the chance to sample new teas, especially blends. They had a number of their teas in glass jars in order to sniff them. It was a nice warm morning and they had their Mango Beach Organic black tea available as an iced tea. It was very refreshing.

My husband is a huge fan of black tea, so we picked up a package of their Organic Ginger Peach Clove black tea to bring home. We brewed some right away as an iced tea and is was very good. This tea also has a touch of cinnamon in it, rounding off the flavors nicely.

Next time I want to get a package of their Green Apple Organic and Rooibos Chocolate Organic to try and review. If you are looking for a Michigan based tea company, then definitely check out Deckan Tea. They also offer coffee as well. They have a store location at Great Lakes Crossing Mall in Auburn Hills and ship all over the world.
