This week - Oreanthi "Harmony"
Cost: $6.99 at Central Market
Size:  15 transparent biodegradable pyramids, made from cornstarch!
Caffeine:   No
Type of tea:   Herbal
Steeping time:  3 minutes
Mix ins:   A little bit of Pure Beeing honey
Fragrance:  Floral
Ingredients:  Chamomile, rosehip, jasmine flowers, nettle, marjoram, scented geranium and Greek sage.
Opinion:   Another one of the teas featured during Central Market's Greek Festival, which seemed to be added to their regular tea selection.  You may find this in two places, with two different prices. Of course, the higher price will ring up.  But Customer Service was very good about refunding the difference.   I liked the name and the box design, and also the interesting combination of herbs.  Marjoram?  Hmm, they could have left that out.  It kind of made it take a turn towards poultry seasoning tea, especially with the Greek Sage - haha!  : /  But, if you add a little honey, by the time you finish the cup, you will also agree "it's not bad and kind of fun to drink."  I thought the Scented Geranium was very unique and nice addition to the jasmine flowers.  And Oreanthi means "beautiful flowers"  You'll end up buying a box, too, when you read this description - "...Chamomile and Marjoram, reputed for their calming effect on rattled nerves, Nettle known for its slimming and cleansing properties and Greek Sage said to promote harmony and inner balance. Scented Geranium is believed to have destressing properties that ease anxiety and tension. We have blended these traditional treasures together with Jasmine and Rose Hip for a refined and exquisite taste..."
