Featured Bonus Reblend for January 2020!
January is Reblend Month!
This is a tea that I've wanted to reblend for a while - because I loved it when it first came out (back in 2014) & I think I love it even more now! Perhaps the reason I like it more now is because I made this blend with an organic White Peony instead of the Shou Mei that Frank utilized in the original blend & I'll take a White Peony over a Shou Mei any day.
Back when Frank blended this tea, he described it like this:
My wife and I just celebrated our ninth wedding anniversary. I’m a little surprised she has put up with me for that long. Anyway, she specifically requested this blend and I think it was a great suggestion. It’s something I doubt I would eat, but I don’t really care for grapefruit,however as a flavored tea, this is awesome. It’s tart and sweet and light and refreshing. Very yummy.
So, this blend doesn't really rely much on a previous recipe because - this is one of the recipes that was either lost when Frank's computer went kaput or when mine did - but because the name of the tea seems like a very straightforward recipe, I just went for it. I started with an organic White Peony tea, added paper-thin sliced dried grapefruit wedges & some brown sugar essence to create a tea that tastes like a grapefruit topped with brown sugar. A delightful treat for your teacup!
So my blend is a little different - not just from the type of white tea used - but also from my addition of grapefruit wedges. This is a really tasty tea - tangy-tart, a little bit sweet, it's light & crisp & bright. A very refreshing cuppa! It's also organic, VEGAN, gluten-free & allergen free!
