“Matri” (a registered trademark) comes from the Latin for "mother," mater and appears at the front of words like matriarch. According to the website this blend “breathes women in birth in the most high and loving way. This tea mineralizes the physical body. Metaphysically it activates the frequency of manifestation; concept into fruition assisting those who often procrastinate in life.” I’m long past birthing anyone, but I do procrastinate and so this one appealed to me. A little mineralizing probably wouldn’t hurt, either.
The Matri tisane is crafted from nettles, red raspberry, rose hips, alfalfa, dandelion, lemon & ginger. If I remember my herb lore correctly, nettles and dandelion are often used to purify, and red raspberry is used to help with various women’s reproductive system issues. It’s an interesting-looking mix, with lots of alfalfa, which looks like dry grass, rose petals, and even a few rose buds. I didn’t see any rose hips, and wonder if that was a misprint? It had a strong sweet aroma composed of powerful notes of rose, with a citrus and ginger background.
I steeped a generous teaspoonful in 8 oz. of 208F water for 4 minutes in my favorite hand-thrown porcelain cup. The liquor was a medium yellow and softly redolent of lemon, rose, and ginger. The flavor was, smooth and mouth filling, and naturally sweet. (I wouldn’t even add honey to this.) As it rolled over my tongue I tasted rose, lemon, ginger, and an underlying herbiness that must have been the mélange of the remaining ingredients. Altogether it was quite delicious and left my tongue tingling a little. Whether that was the ginger or its vibrational power, I can’t say, but it was nice. I’ve very picky about herbal tisanes, but this one is delicious!
I tried a second 4 minute infusion. The aroma was still strong, and a bit more lemony this time. The flavor was not quite as strong, but still nicely complex with rose leading the way and a gingery finish.
Whether or not you subscribe to the metaphysical claims for this tisane, it is undeniably delicious! Now if it will just help with my procrastination. Highly recommended!
