Pairings: Sundrenched Citrus

Bigelow Botanicals Cold Water Tea paired with Cookies Blood Moon Mixed Light Flower.

The Tannins

Bigelow Botanicals Cold Water Infusion Blood Orange Tangerine Tea

Different from traditional tea brewed in steaming hot water, these tea bags can be infused into cold water in around 10 minutes. I like to leave the tea bag in my on-the-go water bottle for an entire day to get as much flavor as possible. Blood orange and tangerine are a sweet and tangy combination that produces an almost berry-like medley in the glass. This tea is also zero calories, making it the perfect satisfaction for a munchies-induced sweet tooth.

The Terpenes

Blood Moon Mixed Light Flower from Cookies

Cookies’ mixed light flower is grown by SunMed Growers, who is doing a phenomenal job putting out quality products for this brand. Ripping into the bag unleashed a blend of tropical sweet and fruity flavors, with citrus dominating the profile. The buds are coated in frosty trichomes with an undertone of purple and dark green beneath. This strain crosses EmergenC and Kush Mints, and coming in a 7g bag allows us to get more bang for our buck.

The Pairing

Oranges for days in this pairing provide an uplifting and energizing combination, even with the tea being caffeine free. Something about the terpene profile of citrus-rich strains always puts me in the mood to get things done, at work and personally. Rolling up a fatty of Blood Moon and getting an ice-cold glass of tea proved to be the perfect way for me to start a busy day.
