Peppermint has long been associated with relaxation – native tradition holds that it was a great way to soothe muscles and calm nerves
“I could have had class. I could have been a contender. I could have been somebody”. Perhaps Terry Malloy, lead character in 1954?s On the Waterfront, the blockbuster story of crime and corruption on Manhattan's waterfront, should have boosted his disposition with a cup of this fabulous herbal tea. The same holds true for Marlon Brando who played the character. Hollywood legend has it that on the day Brando first watched the film in its entirety, he walked out 10 minutes before it ended, saying he was so depressed by his performance that he couldn?t watch anymore. Considering the film has since been heralded as a cinematic masterpiece, his reaction was probably a little unfounded.
So why would a cup of this tea have raised the spirits of all those involved? Well, there are a few reasons. The first is Peppermint, which gives the blend a spicy fresh profile. Peppermint has long been associated with relaxation – native tradition holds that it was a great way to soothe muscles and calm nerves – so who wouldn?t feel better? Next are the rose petals that weave a delectable floral character through the cup. Since time immemorial Roses have been given as pick-me-up gifts – we figure including them in an herbal tea ought to have the same affect. Next up is ginger. Ginger?s heat adds a layer of vitality to the blend that is sure to get the taste buds reeling and synapses firing with positive energy. Then there is the Osmanthus and Hibiscus, both flowers known for their pleasant aromas and inspiring flavors. Rounding out the blend are apple and almond,both packed with vitamins and protein to get the body feeling great and the mellow herbal character of South African Rooibos,packed with Iron, Zinc and more.
So you can see, if you?re feeling in any way like life is passing you by, a nice hot cup of On the Waterfront ought to help turn the tide in your favor. With this tea there is no “could have” – there is only “will do”! Offer your customers a taste of the good life!
