The guys at Reunion Island Coffee are launching a new line. Went to an afternoon tea at The Federal to sip and sample the blends on offer.

A list of the teas: Organic English Breakfast, Organic Early Grey, Organic Chai, Sweet Hibiscus, Peppermint, Organic Vanilla Rooibos, Organic Lavender Green, Jasmine Pearl, Gunpowder Green, and Lemon Oolong.

Out of all the teas I tried, their peppermint tea was really lovely. The Oregon-grown peppermint really lent a lasting finish to the tea that was wholly soothing, especially against the cold wind that rushed down the city streets that afternoon.
