Tea of the Day - 4.22.08

Happy Earth Day !!! (and for those in my neighboring state of Pennsylvania--Don't Forget to VOTE today.....make YOUR voice count!)
My selections today is in honor of Earth Day....Zhena's Gypsy Tea in Gypsy Earl Green

Ingredients: Organic, fair trade, Nilgiri green tea, organic ginger root, organic Valencia orange peel, Bulgarian roses, organic Sicilian oil of bergamot orange
A nice organic choice, with the lovely notes of Earl Grey tea, but in a calming green tea blend.

"Aromatheraputic Benefits:Bergamot aids in concentration and confidence and has been used as a natural anti-depressant. Ginger root increases focus and stimulates digestion.

Beauty Applications: Reduces wrinkles: Green tea extracts are known to aid in reducing the visible signs of aging and protect skin from damaging UVA and UVB radiation."

Do yourself a favor, and give this flavor (and brand) a try....it will definately surprise you!
Remember to recycle, turn off a light (or two), leave your car at home and take a walk......a don't forget your cup of tea!

Happy Earth Day. I'm so glad I found your blog. Where I live it is hard to find any recommendations for good tea. The tea today sounds excellent. I may have to order a sample for myself.

Happy Earth Day!!! I celebrated by using the clothesline instead of the dryer today. Just my small contribution to the day.

I sure could use a cup of tea now though.

That sounds like a really lovely flavored tea. I love earl and lady grey teas, something so nice and comforting, and this sounds like a slightly spicier version. I'll look for it. Thanks for the review.

Zhena's is my local tea company and they are woman-owned with lots of fair-trade teas available as well as a variety of flavors. They have a raspberry earl grey you might also want to try.
