This tisane blend is certified organic.
RAINIER is a tisane blend led by peppermint leaf of the black mitcham cultivar, renowned for ample essential oil content—the result of high-mountain growing conditions that stress the plant and concentrate its compounds (not unlike high mountain teas). Sourced direct from certified organic Trout Lake farm in the shadow of Washington State's Cascade mountain range, the mint is heavily influenced by the terroir of the Pacific Northwest, distinct from middle eastern or Chinese peppermint.
RAINIER delivers a focused mint sensation. The peppermint, blended with a touch of organic south Asian lemongrass, steeps up a burnt orange liquor with punchy coolness that gives way to a saccharine aroma of mint chocolate. Medium body and sweet with a lingering wintriness.
Blended with signature beverage service in mind, RAINIER is caffeine-free and well-suited to hot, cold, and mixed drink making. Serve steaming with warm alt milk, shake with ice and pour neat, or steep a concentrate (1 gram tisane : 2 ounces water) for use in sig drinks.
