LunaTeaCo Moonlight Blend

Basil, Lavender, Peppermint – three wonderful flavors to relax and put you in a good mood. This moonlight blend is refreshing, soothing and relaxing perfect for any time you need to de-stress and rejuvenate. You get a deep herbal tone of the lavender mixed with uplifting, minty peppermint and basil. The aroma is clean and rejuvenating. 

Intensity:

The basil and peppermint strength stays consistent, while the lavender will get stronger the longer you brew. You’ll be left with a slight mintiness that bites your tongue from the peppermint. The basil will leave a mild herbal, refreshing tone, and the lavender will add a richer relaxing herbal tone after you take a sip.

Flavor Profile:

40% lavender, 30% basil, 30% peppermint.

Sweetness:

This tea is a very herbal, earthy blend. The sweetness you’ll find will come out of the spearmint and basil, but it’s very low-key.  I would recommend adding some honey, if you enjoy sweet herbal teas, for it’ll add such a nice sweetness to complement the three herbs in this blend to create a wonderful afternoon/night treat.

Brewing:

I brewed this at 215° for 6 minutes. Any longer, you’ll predominately get lavender. I find that lavender gets much stronger as you brew it longer, compared to other herbs.

Ingredients:
Organic Basil, Lavender, Peppermint
