Fennel & Nettle Herbal Infusion from Morrisons

Fennel & Nettle Herbal Infusion from MorrisonsI stopped by my local Supermarket prior to the Christmas holidays as I had run out of shall we say digestion teas!

Some how with the lead up to Christmas I thought it was a good idea to pick some up while I had the chance.

I decided to go for this a fennel and nettle tea which is caffeine-free and contains 2 of my favourite flavours- fennel and nettle.

The tea contains 50% nettle and 50% fennel- nothing else!

Before I begin the tasting I would just like to let you in on the tastes and aromas of these 2 flavours-

Nettle– This is a very light and soothing flavour and aroma and is very similar to peppermint yet milder.

Fennel- This is a very clean tasting, yet punchy taste and aroma very similar to aniseed…I particularly love this and find it very enjoyable to eat as well as consume in beverage form.

I pop my kettle on to boil and reach into the box for a teabag. This is a box of 20 and is sealed in a foil fresh pack. I must say even before I pop open the foil fresh bag the aroma hits me and instantly I feel refreshed.

With the kettle now boiled I pour the hot liquid over my teabag and instantly the water turns green with a slight hint of gold.

According to the pack you should use 1 teabag per person in a pot or cup and add freshly boiled water. The pack states I should leave my bag in for 2-3 minutes for the flavour to flow.

I leave the tea as stated and decide to take a look to see if I can find any information on these 2 ingredients.

Here is what I found…

Nettle- 

Nettle is said to be good for supporting the immune system, improving circulation, maintaining a healthy urinary tract,  maininting health of the nervous system, keeping a clear respiratory tract,  maintaining a good digestive system, it also fights coughs and tuberculosis plus many other ailments

Fennel-

Fennel is said to be a good kidney cleanser and is fever fighting, detoxifying, helps to improve digestion, boosts the body’s metabolic rate which effectively increases fat burning capabilities

So here goes the tasting…

I take the first sip and I am very pleased that the tea is not over powering on flavours, a perfect blend of both ingredients in my opinion.

The tea tastes clear and fresh and has almost a liquorice like flavour (this is coming from the fennel). The tea would be a pleasure to drink first thing in a morning and last thing at night along with consuming after a meal to aid digestion.

This tea will be permanently in my cupboard as a rescue from an upset stomach, acid reflux, heartburn and indigestion type symptoms along with the sheer enjoyment of the ingredients paired together for a refreshing brew any time of the day as it is caffeine-free.

Morrisons describes this tea as-

A light soothing drink, naturally caffeine free, foil wrapped for extra freshness

Overall I would describe this tea as light, refreshing, clear tasting and sweet. A lovely addition to any tea-lovers cupboard

I have been enjoying this tea since discovering it earlier thid year, however, it was not on the shelves in my local Morrisons today. I hope it hasnt been discontinued. Its a great tea at a great price!

I am desperate to find Fennel and Nettle – I believe Morrisons has indeed stopped doing it. Nothing else I have tried comes close. I’ve thought of getting Fennel tea and Nettle tea, and having two teabags in one cup

Suffering from chronic osteoarthritis I have found that drinking a cup of Morrisons own brand of Fennel & Nettle tea whilst reading my bedtime book has given me the best relaxing sleep in years and have been enthusing about its properties and advantages to anyone who will listen! However now I find that no store within 20 mile radius of Canterbury still has any on their shelves. Having inquired at each store visited by myself and friends on my behalf the answer has always been “it is no longer a stock item”.
Please can anyone tell me where I can get some boxes of this tea as i have recommended it to many of my friends they too wish to obtain a supply. Pl;ease HELP US1111
