Tea of the Week for August 6, 2018!
Tea and Scones - two great things that taste great together!
I started with a base of organic black teas: a combination of tippy Yunnan, Ceylon & Assam, heavy on the Yunnan - and then I added some orange sections and raisins as well as some sweet, cake-y scone-like essence with just a hint of cream. The raisin is a bit more forward - complimented by the sweet, dry fruit profile of the black teas - while the orange is very delicate, meant more as an accent than a distinct profile. My reason behind this is this: I know that there are a lot of different flavored scones out there (my favorite at the moment is a maple pecan scone from our local bakery), but rather than try to focus on a specific flavored scone, I wanted to focus more on the idea of scones and tea. I didn't want to overwhelm the nice scone-y taste that I managed to create with too much of another flavor, so I decided to go with a touch of orange and some raisin.
The tea is sweet with a smooth, buttery finish. Really nice!
