“There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.”
– Henry James
Mii amo’s “Journey of Teas,” an informative, guided tasting, introduces guests to the health benefits of true teas and tea-like beverages as well as their proper preparation. Real tea is made from the Camellia Sinensis plant, the source of phytonutrients that are responsible for the health benefits of tea. Some medical studies have claimed tea to be an aid in relieving arthritis pain, boosting the immune system, fighting viruses and detoxifying the body. But this class is hardly all about science.
Guests taste six to eight teas and detect the flavor differences among green, black, white teas and rooibos. Honey, raw sugar and citrus slices are provided so one can adjust the flavoring to their liking. Mii amo also has several delicious teas blended especially for the destination spa:
- White Cloud | Made from rare and exotic white tea leaves, laced with toasted coconut and sweet pineapple. Naturally low in caffeine.
- Sedona Sun |A luscious blend containing whole cranberries, elderberries, black currants and “rooibos red.” Rooibos, made form the South African “red bush,” is a caffeine-free herbal agent, high in antioxidants and minerals. Naturally caffeine-free.
- Desert Passion | An energizing blend of green tea, Siberian ginseng, marigold flowers and passion fruit essence. Naturally low in caffeine.
