A visit to the French village of Giverny was the inspiration behind this chocolaty tisane. And why not, Giverny was the inspiration for some of the world’s best-known paintings. The famous French impressionist Claude Monet called the village home for nearly 45 years and painted some of his best-known works there. The pretty little spot is built along two streets running up a hillside lined with low houses covered in Wisteria and Virginia creeping vines – it is an exceptionally beautiful place. But even more beautiful is Monet’s garden, tucked in behind his old chateau. To say it is lush is an understatement – broad leafy trees, flowers of every color and tropical plants literally fill every corner. The garden is built around a pond crisscrossed by a number of Japanese-style footbridges and filled with Koi. To laze away a warm afternoon there is like spending the day in heaven itself.

It is that feeling that we have tried to capture in this wonderful tea. Based on a South African Rooibos, the blend offers mellow herbal notes, offset by tones of rich chocolate reminiscent of a traditional French chocolat chaud, (Monet’s favorite). Brew a pot today and we’re sure you’ll find this tea to be a work of art in itself. Fantastic served hot or over a tall glass of ice, Giverny is bound to become one of your favorites. A votre santé!
