Stories Behind the Blend: Piper Mint Blues

Piper Mint Blues Billboard ShootOnce upon a time in the early years of Piper and Leaf, we embarked on a mission to create a tea blend that would be both visually stunning and delicious, and Piper Mint Blues is the enchanting result. Crafting the perfect tea blend is no fairytale-like magic; it's a journey of experimentation and learning from mistakes. At Piper and Leaf, all our blends are crafted with love, using local ingredients, to conjure a magical cup every time. Piper Mint Blues is one of our most distinctive creations, where refreshing mint intertwines with a mesmerizing, vibrant blue hue! 

The Mystery Behind the Blue 

Piper Mint Blues captivates with its enchanting blue hue, inspired by the mesmerizing color-changing properties of the Australian-grown butterfly pea flower we stumbled upon at a food show. Entranced by its color-changing magic, we knew we had to incorporate it into a tea blend! At Piper and Leaf, we meticulously craft our blends, ensuring every element, from name, to flavor, and color, creates a cohesive experience. Our goal is to create special moments in your day that evoke nostalgia, creativity, and imagination, and a vibrant blue tea seemed like just the thing to achieve that! 

Fun fact: Did you know that our initial plan was to create a blue raspberry tea? In theory, it sounded great! However, we soon realized that the fruit's acidity would change the color from electric blue to pinkish purple. So, we brainstormed and turned to mint tea for its non-acidic nature and added blueberries and blackberries to enhance the blue theme. Coincidentally, these berries are naturally low in acidity! Despite our initial hesitation, Piper Mint Blues emerged as a unique creation, leaving a lasting impression with its vibrant color and delightful taste!

Mint Tea and Wellness

Piper and Leaf's teas are carefully crafted with a specific ingredient in mind to provide unique health benefits and flavor to each blend. While peppermint and spearmint are deliciously refreshing on their own, Piper Mint Blues takes it a step further. This blend harmoniously combines the calming qualities of mint, fresh berries, and the warmth of ginger, creating an all-purpose respiratory tea designed to soothe and invigorate! Bursting with local blueberries, blackberries, and mint, each cup is a powerhouse of vitamins and antioxidants. The result? A delightful tea with a refreshing, full-bodied taste balanced perfectly by robust ginger, providing that extra kick! Whether you need a mental boost or a moment to unwind, Piper Mint Blues has you covered. Here are some more reasons you should be drinking mint tea. 

Steeping Tradition 

Mint tea is a staple in the Christopher household. For Caleb, it's an essential part of his daily routine, and his kids aren’t falling too far behind! While they have many favorites, if they had to pick, Piper Mint Blues would be in their top five, but who can choose just five? At Piper and Leaf, we believe in keeping things simple, and for us, Piper Mint Blues is the best. A beloved blend for both family and company, it's not just a tea; it's a shared sentiment. Why not make it your favorite too? Join us for a cup, or take some home, and become a part of our big, mint-loving family!
