Firepot’s Delicous Caffeine Free Indian Rose Garden
I’ve always had a very special place in my heart for roses. My dad was an AVID rose gardener. He had not one, not two, but three big beautiful rose beds. He even coveted my mom’s perennial flower bed for number 4! Luckily for her, her garden got more shade than he deemed appropriate for his beloved roses, so she got to keep it.
Even today, whenever I see or smell a rose, I think back to growing up surrounded by my dad’s beautiful roses. He would have greatly approved of Firepot Nomadic Tea’s Indian Rose Garden.
In fact, it would have been his favorite tea.
I always have a wide assortment of tea on hand – as you’d imagine a “crazy tea chick” would. Decaf, caffeinated, herbal, concentrates, blends, loose leaf, bags, etc. Basically, if there’s a certain tea anyone in our family needs, it’s available at any given time.
Keeping caffeine free tea on hand is as smart as it is delicious. Too much caffeine after 6:00 pm interferes with your sleep, but if you’re like me, forgoing a cup (or two) of evening tea is completely out of the question.
Enter caffeine free tea to save the day.
A Beautiful, Caffeine Free Blend from Firepot Nomadic Teas
You should always keep great quality caffeine free tea on hand to enjoy in the evening. For several reasons, actually. Not only will it keep you from consuming too much caffeine, the warmth of a great cup of tea in the evening actually promotes sleep and can even lead to sweeter sleep.
The process of brewing the tea is relaxing, in and of itself. The fragrance of the tea leaves, the sound of the water washing over them… as I always say, a very large part of the beauty of tea is that it’s an experience to enjoy as much as it is a drink. Making tea is one of the most relaxing things you can do.
In fact, unless I miss my guess, it’s downright therapeutic. And when it comes to tea, I don’t miss my guesses.
The Picture of Relaxation
What Makes Firepot’s Indian Rose Garden So Special?
I’ve had some loose leaf tea blends that were too “flowery” for my taste. You know the ones – where you’re drinking a cup of tea and keep looking into your tea, convinced that someone threw a marigold into your cup.
Herbs and, for that matter, flowers, should enhance a cup of tea – not dominate it. When all’s said and done, you want to know you’re drinking tea… not tears of flowers. Firepot Nomadic Tea’s Indian Rose Garden blend is just perfect. If someone were to put on a seminar, teaching subtlety when it comes to flavoring teas, they could save themselves a lot of effort simply by serving Indian Rose Garden and saying, “Do thus-ly.”
The Indian Rose Garden blend is everything it should be and nothing it shouldn’t be. The blend is perfection and I wouldn’t change a single thing. The tea’s flavor is delicious, subtle, and unique and it’s “experience” is warm, relaxing, and inviting.
