I am usually not a big fan of blended or herbal teas, but I have tried a few of Bourgea Teas’ blends and have been pleasantly surprised! On first glance of this tea, I see many different components to it, and it is so beautiful to look at. This tea includes  organic lemon myrtle, juniper, ginger, anise, marigold, and birch leaves — just to name a few! The smell is very licorice heavy, which can be unsettling for some, but I really enjoy the smell of herbs blended together. The tea liquor has a beautiful dark amber color. Unlike the dry tea smell, the steeped tea smells more strongly like lemon. I really like the taste of this tea. The main flavors of the tea are licorice,lemon,pu-erh and rooibos flavors very well! The earthiness of the pu-erh mingles perfectly with the woodiness of the rooibos. Some Rooibos can seem overpowering and woody in flavor,the blend of the two create an interestingly woody/earthy taste that lingers after the initial flavors of the licorice go away. I really enjoyed this tea, and I can see how it can be classified as a tea that is going to cure hangovers, or groggy mornings and make you feel better. I am not usually fond of blends, but this one very well mixed, and is delicious to sip on!

I really admire what Chris has done with Bourgea Tea, on my college campus, in the cafe’s there is very little tea selection.The story of the company is Chris was unsatisfied with the tea selection of the cafe on his college campus and started a project to supply great loose leaf tea to the students around him. He started to make the tea bags by hand and sold them in the cafe. ”  BourgeaTEA has never lost the vision of challenging the way people think about tea and its emphasis towards college students and living well.”(BourgeaTea.com) This statement and vision is the reason I started this tea blog. When I started getting into tea, I thought there was a stigma about tea, about that only stuffy people drank tea, but through learning more about tea, and working through the stigma, I found out there is more to tea than that!  Check out BourgeaTea, they are doing great things right now in the tea world!an of blends, but Chris did a really fantastic job blending this one.

Bourgea Tea’s Lucari Chai

Brand: Bourgea Tea

Tea Rating: 80/100

Steep Time: 3-4 minutes

Steep Temperature: 180 Degrees

Upon first look at this tea, I noticed that there were amber cane sugar crystals in the blend, which made me weary, as I am usually not fond of sweetened tea. This tea includes a blend of Sri Lankan Green Tea, Viet Nam Mekong Cinnamon, bits of pineapple and a chai  blend from India. The smell of the dry tea is very spicy, so spicy that it felt like it had cleaned my sinuses. The smell of the steeped liquor was reminiscent of hot spiced cider, with lots of cinnamon. The specialty cinnamon used in the blend really packs some serious heat! The flavor of the tea is light and enjoyable, with a nice cinnamon twang. I would really love to make this tea on the stove, with boiling milk,water and  the chai! The tea would really shine being prepared this way! I was pleasantly surprised with this tea. Looking at the dry leaves, I didn’t spot much green tea, but it must have been masked by the other ingredients. After steeping, there were large leaves everywhere! What a surprise!
