As a tea drinker, I've long been a fan of Fairmont hotels. The chain has distinguished itself by having its own line of quality teas. Even better, most locations make electric kettles available, so one can achieve a true boil when brewing an in-room cup - very important to us tea mavens.
Now Fairmont, as part of its Lifestyle Cuisine program, is adding a Wellness line to its Fairmont Tea brand.
The five teas in the Wellness line are: Fairmont High Antioxidant, a blend of green and white teas from Kenya and Malawi; Fairmont Tranquility, made with chamomile, rooibos, lemon balm, lemon verbena, linden flowers, anise, cinnamon, oat straw, hops, passion flower, and orange peel; Fairmont Equilibrium,comprising rosehips, anise, raspberry, nettle, licorice, cardamom, rooibos, and clove; Fairmont Energy, with yerba maté, lemongrass, spearmint, ginseng, and ginkgo; and Fairmont Digestif, made with spearmint, lemon balm, peppermint, chamomile, anise, lemon grass, ginger, clove, cinnamon, orange peel, and papaya.
Unlike many commercial brands, Fairmont teas are a pleasure to sip. They're made from quality ingredients, and the blends are so smooth that they might even convert a confirmed coffee drinker. Go ahead, put the kettle on and give them a try.
