Steep Echo Olive Leaf Teas

 Yes, you read that correctly.
"Tea" made from olive leaves, herbs and flavorings.
Glenn received this lovely packaged gift from a business friend,
and owner of Bel Lavoro Olive Orchards,
Santa Barbara, CA
You can read the ingredients listed in the photos of each label below.

 


These are herbal infusions or tisanes,
and not "real tea" as in Camellia sinensis.
But, alas, that's one of my several tea pet peeves.

Glenn has been enjoying these herbal infusions in the evenings. 
He does not drink or eat anything with caffeine,
so these herbals "Suit him to a T."

Like the last pun. When we had tea with Denise in London the waiter brought my husband olive leaf tea that came from his families farm in Italy. This is only the second time I have heard of it.

Sounds interesting! I'm glad your husband is enjoying them.

The addition of all the other herbs and flavorings would certainly give the olive leaves a boost of flavor! I would imagine olive leaves by themselves are pretty bland. Interesting concept! Good when you need something without the caffeine.
