a revelation!

I bought your Portuguese Cinnamon Basil tea a few weeks ago and it has transformed my life. I adore it. I basically drink coffee in the morning and then spend the afternoon decaffeinating myself, so I drink a variety of herbal teas. They are insipid and monotone in comparison. I didn’t know herbal tea could be so flavoursome and interesting and characterful. I make it in my little teapot and have several brews. It is also very pretty. I love it. Thank you.

Cinnamon Basil was taken into space by the Endeavour Space Shuttle in 2007 and grown in an experiment in low earth orbit on the International Space Station.

It actually is, out of this world.
