Immortelle l'Amour Organic Tea
When I created Immortelle l'Amour it had Alice's "Drink Me!" label all over it. Today, my dream has finally come true: I had my first tea blend, accompanying my newest perfume, Immortelle l'Amour, is finally ready to be enjoyed. I had the pleasure of tasting this liquid perfumed-tea perfection this afternoon and it has exceeded my wildest dreams of my perfume-to-tea adaptation.
It's amazing what a few simple yet exquisite ingredients can create when married together. As with perfume - so it is with tea: the sum is greater than its parts. And here these are all the best quality there is: all organic, fresh and blended carefully by hand. Immortelle l'Amour perfumed tea is co-designed with Dawna Ehman, and produced and packaged by Inner Alchemy Tea Co. in Vancouver. It was such a delight to work with Dawna on this tea, and I am looking forward to be able to drink many more of my perfumes in the future - in the form of tea - and share them with you, of course!
Made with the finest organic rooibos, infused with Madagascan vanilla beans, and with a touch of cinnamon, fruity sweet orange peel and a splash of calendula flowers for colour - Immortelle l'Amour is exquisite in every possible way - visually and aromatically in it's dried form and delicious, full-bodied and sweet when brewed.
Immortelle l'Amour is a living evidence for the beauty of plants and how they can be incorporated into our daily life, adding peace, pleasure and the
opportunity for sharing the moment with loved ones.
Immortelle l'Amour Brewing Instructions & Serving SuggestionI have this fascinating information and brewing tips for the Immortelle
l'Amour tea, from the tea-creator, Dawna Ehman of Inner Alchemy Tea Co.:
"For each 5 oz. cup of tea desired, add 1 tsp. of rooibos to freshly boiled water. Cover and steep (or simmer gently) for at least 10 minutes. Serve with cream and maple syrup for an exquisite dessert tea".
Rooibos Information & Properties
More from Dawna Ehman of Inner Alchemy Tea Co. - about the origins and properties of rooibos tea:
"Rooibos is produced by oxidizing the green needles of Aspalathus linearis, a wild broom-like shrub native to South Africa. It is a full flavored tea with low levels of tannin and no calories, oxalic acid or caffeine. Rooibos tisane contains many nutrients including a full spectrum of minerals, vitamin C and high levels of antioxidants. For optimum extraction and flavour, steep in boiling water for a minimum of 10 minutes.The nourishing properties of Rooibos enable it to regulate nervous system imbalances such as headaches, irritability, insomnia, hypertension and depression. The anti-spasmodic properties of Rooibos aid in digestive imbalances like nausea, cramps, heartburn and constipation. As well, Rooibos is reputed to strengthen the body of low immunity and allergies like hay fever, asthma and eczema."
