The reading nook blend is our signature tea created for enjoying while perfecting some of our dearest passions: reading, writing, and enjoying conversation with friends. We basically combine 3 different tea concepts into one: rose black tea, lavender black tea, and black chamomile tea.
One needs a touch of caffeine to keep the conversation flowing, the pages turning, or the pen on the move, so we start this blend with a wonderful cream black tea. We then added rosebuds for creativity and sustenance, lavender for flavor and aroma, and top it off with a bit of chamomile which adds a calming balance to it all. Customers often tell us this is our prettiest tea and it certainly has the top reviews!
Reading Nook Tea Blend (Rose / Lavender / Chamomile)Andy Hayes
I really did not expect to like this tea with lavender in it. And I've never been crazy about plain chamomile, though I'd drink it occasionally. Boy, was I surprised! Smooth and silky on my tongue, wonderful hint of vanilla flavor, amazing fragrance.... Hot or cold, the ingredients mesh perfectly in this relaxing blend.
I just got my first order in the mail a couple of days ago. I searched everywhere for a replacement for Teavana’s Tranquil Dream. I found Plum Deluxe and was so excited. I was only going to get a couple of ounces of your Tranquil Dreams (which is great, btw) when I came across the Reading Nook reviews. I was like hmmmm I guess I’ll try it. I am a mega tea snob and only drink loose leaf tea. Let me just tell you I am IN LOVE with this tea!!! I’m pretty sure it is my new favorite. That says a lot because I have so many teas in my collection. I tastes SO GOOD and the combination of caffeine and camomile is genius!!! I feel so balanced! I’ve been drinking it the last 3 mornings and I feel so relaxed yet alert!
