Yeah, it’s a mouthful. A mouthful of DELICIOUS.
This week’s tea was inspired by a suggestion from our friend Marzipan on Steepster. She wrote me saying: ”You may have done some like this in the past, but I was dreaming a little bit today and thought I would pass along my thoughts. I married a Danish man, so I have come to love many of their foods (that’s why my nickname is Marzipan). One of those is called hindbaersnitter, which literally means “raspberry cuts”. It can be found in any Danish bakery. I make it here at home sometimes, and it is basically a much better, homemade, huge raspberry pop tart. It’s two shortbread like pastries rolled thin, with raspberry jam in the middle and confectioners sugar glaze on top. I could see this as a fun tea, maybe with raspberry and cake flavors, plus it has icing on the top (so a little sweet), and sprinkles, so there could be sprinkles in the mix.“
Now having never had hindbaersnitter (and yes, I have to double-check my spelling EVERY time I type that), I had to sort of imagine what it would be like. I imagined the sweet hay-like shou mei blended with freeze-dried raspberries and pastry notes along with a touch of sweetness, and I think I’ve struck on something delicious, but I’ll let you be the judge.

We’re back at it again. We’ve just launched a new Kickstarter campaign to expand our Southern Boy Teas iced tea line to include green teas, white teas and honeybush blends. There are some very cool rewards for backers. As of this writing, we’re over 3/4 of the way to our initial goal to add one green tea to our line-up and the project has only been live for an hour. I hope you’ll check it out.
