Tea of the Week for July 29, 2019!
A complex combination of black teas (including a Rose Congou) blended with Raspberries & vanilla bean
When I first came up with the idea to do a Mad Tea Party theme, this tea was the first one that started to formulate in my mind. I knew that the Queen of Hearts had to have a rose tea. (Painting the Roses Red!) So this tea starts with a Rose Congou. To that, I added some Assam, Ceylon & Yunnan teas and just a touch of Vietnamese black tea to round out the flavors. This rather large assemblage of black teas creates an uncommonly rich yet smooth flavor - and the Queen of Hearts would certainly not drink anything "common" now, would she?
I wanted something more than just rose, though, so I added some red raspberries and some vanilla bean to the blend. The result is a cup that's sweet-tart from the raspberries, a little creamy from the vanilla with just the right kiss of rose. The black tea offers a bold flavor - like the Queen herself.
I really love this tea. It tastes amazing hot - would make a perfect breakfast or afternoon tea. It's also rather splendid as an iced tea. However you decide to serve it, it's fantastic. It's also organic, gluten free, allergen free & VEGAN!
