Our Walt Whitman tea blend is inspired by his beautiful nature imagery in Leaves of Grass, especially the poems he wrote about roots and herbs. In one of his memoirs, Whitman describes a man who “express'd a great desire for good, strong green tea.” This blend is an earthier and more mature variation on Simpson & Vail’s Lemon Ginger Green Tea. It combines an unobtrusive green tea base with the earthiness of ginger and eleuthero roots and the sweetness and acid bite of lemon (with lemongrass, lemon peel, and lemon flavoring).
Ingredients: Organic Green Tea, organic ginger root, organic lemon peel, organic eleuthero root, organic lemongrass and natural lemon flavor.
Brew tea at 180º - steep for 2-3 minutes.
4 Ounces of loose tea makes approximately 50 cups of tea.
