Peppermint Blend

By Sarjesa | Made in Calgary

A deceptively simple combination of sage, rose and Albertan peppermint, this herbal tea blend from Sarjesa is both complex and comforting. It’s delicious served hot or iced. Sarjesa developed the blend in-house and worked with a Calgary designer on the packaging for the bagged tea. Twenty per cent of profits are donated to violence-prevention programs for women in crisis.
