Nestled in the heart of The French Quarter, New Orleans’ oldest neighborhood, Bourbon is a street like no other. Jazz music spills from every doorway and crowds parade and preen up and down the street under a blaze of neon. It is by any account the very definition of the word ‘revelry’.
This tea was created to capture the festive atmosphere of the famed N’awlins Bourbon Street. The tea needed to be exotic and flavorful, with a subtle air of added intrigue and mystery. Keep in mind that New Orleans is also known for it’s voodoo history.
Just like a piping hot pot of gumbo, this tea is a combination of rooibos, a South African red tea, to symbolize the hot Louisiana sun with a dash of French Vanilla flavoring representing New Orleans’ colonial past. Add a touch of spicy Anise to “jazz” it up and with cornflower and chamomile petals to add a dash of vibrant color and Et Voila! The results of this lovely caffeine-free ORGANIC tea are bright, lively and unforgettable!
