Chinese Green Teas (including a Jasmine scented green tea) blended together with apricots, orange peel, orange blossoms & cardamom
If you've read my description of July's themed box, then you probably guessed that one of these 'custom' creations would be for Alice herself. I mean, she is the main character, isn't she? Plus, when the Mad Hatter asked her if she cares for tea, she responded, "Why, yes. I'm very fond of tea." So, it really goes without saying that she NEEDED a tea of her own.
For Alice's tea, I started with a Long Mei green tea grown in the Yunnan province and added apricot, orange peel, orange blossoms & a touch of cardamom. To this delicious, beautiful blend, I added another green tea - a jasmine scented Yunnan grown green tea - to create a unique treat for the senses. A tea that looks and smells just as fantastic as it tastes!
I absolutely ADORE this tea. The jasmine notes are forward but do not overwhelm the palate with perfume - the apricot softens the jasmine just so while tantalizing your taste buds with sweet apricot flavor. There are hints of citrus offered throughout the sip - brought to you by the orange peel & blossoms and of course the cardamom, which also provides a kiss of spice that is just barely there.
It's a beautifully fragrant, delicious experience, this tea. It's also vegan, gluten-free & allergen free!
