Happy Sunday! We are finally back open after an eleven day hiatus and we’re so happy to be back! Today is a scorcher and to help everyone beat the heat, one of our cold brew tea specials is also one of our most popular in-house tea blends. It’s called Farmer’s Market and it’s super refreshing! Its perfect for such a hot and humid day.
The tea is made up of all organic white peony, ginger root and lemongrass. The ginger provides such a unique flavor when combined with the white peony and lemongrass it’s almost reminds me of a mild ginger soda.
The white peony provides a caffeine boost that doesn’t feel heavy or intense, which means no jittery come down. White peony has a smooth-bodied fruity flavor, similar to mild green tea. The lemongrass has a hint of citrus flavor, with a mint undertone. And of course, the ginger contributes a gentle pungent bite that pulls all of the other flavors together. It’s a smooth drink with chill vibes.
Before we began Lamplighter Trading Company, I used to sling tea and other herbal products at local farmer’s markets. The first time I introduced this tea was at one of those markets. I struggled to come up with a name for the tea – naming our in-house tea blends is probably one of my least favorite things to do, I find it a huge challenge. So, due to my indecisiveness I settled with Farmer’s Market as the name. Several years later, I think the name is appropriate. I might be partial but I feel summer farmer’s market vibes while sipping this tea. It feels, to me, like one of the finer things in life.
