A Field in Innsbruck: Wildflower Honey Black Tea

Rated 4.1 out of 5
Based on 156 reviews

Tastes Like: blackcurrant, juniper, honey, spruce
Feels Like: a walk through alpine woods

As the Austrian Alps warm they offer a multitude of aromas and colors. A forest walk leads to unexpected clearings redolent of grasses, herbs and wildflowers in full bloom. The bright spruce aroma overhead and earthy fir needles meld with the soil underfoot. Brushing along bushes and ground cover brings an intense burst of fragrant herbs and ripe blackcurrant berries warmed by the sun. This tea offers a majestic aromatic journey. Add milk and honey to enhance the berry sweetness. This makes an extraordinary iced tea. 

📝 Blender's Notes

This fresh black tea blend evokes forest bathing in the Alps. It's an update of an earlier tea blend of the same name.

This blend emerged from the idea of a tea that captured the essence of a forest and prairie walk among the herbs and berries and sweet earth. It's got a lovely bouquet of dark berries like juniper and blackcurrant alongside rosemary, thyme and cornflower. There is a very light touch of pu'erh for some extra depth. If you are unfamiliar with pu'erh tea, it is a special fermented black tea that is prized for digestive and other health properties.

For our 2024 version, I decided to soften the herbaceous and earthy flavors by adding honey granules. It is not a sweet tea to my tastebuds.

This tea is an aromatic spa experience. Lovers of wildflower honey, juniper and gin will appreciate this flavor.

There are those who will shy away from this tea for its juniper, the pu'erh, or the herbs. I've tried to strike a lovely balance where no ingredient dominates. My hope is that this blend will be a delightful experience for anyone who's looking for a truly unique flavor..

I'd love for you to try it hot and iced. Add a splash of your favorite milk. If you're inclined to add more honey, please do. This is a blend that defies the usual flavor categories found in tea. It's a lot to ponder in each sip.

I can't wait to hear what you think.

Warmly,

Quite Good! Prefer iced

Makes a better iced and slightly sweetened tea than a hot tea imo. I want to try this as sun tea.

Not For Me

I was intrigued by the flavor combinations in this one, but it's just not my cup of tea. Something about the herbs and honey combination makes it taste kind of medicinal. Like something a medieval era apothecary would give me to thin my blood or somesuch. It was interesting to try, but I don't think I'll be ordering it again.

Honey flavor comes through

You can really taste the honey and the rosemary in this tea. Very delicate flavors and just a touch of sweetness from the honey. I like this tea, but not one of my top five from August Uncommon.
