All of us here at Mountain Rose Herbs express our deep gratitude towards our pollinating friends in a variety of different ways. After all, without the hard work of the pollinating insects it is difficult to imagine the botanical makeup of terrestrial ecosystems. Bees and other insect pollinators allow nearly 70% of all flowering plants to reproduce; the fruit and seeds from bee pollinated plants account for over 30% of the food that we consume. Sadly, pollinators face a precarious future as the widespread use of neonicotinoid pesticides as well as fungicides continue to contribute to the decimation of bee and other populations worldwide. It is in the spirit of supporting and raising awareness about the importance of honeybees and pollinating insects that our newest tea blend was born.
Our Pollinator blend consists of organically-grown herbs loved by bees and other pollinators that can be found in the Cascadia bioregion that we call home. Sweet with abundant floral notes, this delicious herbal tea can be enjoyed both hot or iced and is a favorite of children as well. Add a dollop of local honey to show your support for the bees and beekeepers of your area.
Aroma and Flavor Sweet and honey-like with an uplifting minty balance. Crisp and light with distinct floral notes. Great iced.
