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.

Hibiscus Quench Steeped

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.

Vintage Tea Tins

Someone recently asked me if I knew a good source for Vintage Tea Tins. I immediately thought of checking eBay. While I occasionally love to shop antique stores, I don't really have time to do so. Plus taking a 5-year-old around to them doesn't seem like the best idea to me.

Browsing in the comfort of my own home with a hot cup of tea is more my style. Here are some of the Vintage Tea Tins that I have found. As always, there is often something new up for auction so keep checking back.
