Tea of the Week for September 17, 2018!
Ahoy! Avast Ye, Matey!
We have a day called "Talk Like a Pirate Day" and it happens to be September 19 - and it was the inspiration behind this chai blend. My personal favorite Pirate is Captain Hook played by Colin O'Donoghue from the recently concluded television series "Once Upon a Time" so I thought I'd dedicate this tea to him.
At first glance, it's going to seem like there's a lot going on with this chai, but it all works together very well: I started with a rich black tea base of Yunnan, Assam & Ceylon with a touch of Lapsang Souchong (for a hint of smokiness). Then I added some Rum essence (because what's a pirate without his rum?), coconut, spices (cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg & allspice), some chicory root & marshmallow root & a couple of organic vanilla beans. It's a pirate's booty of ingredients - but it makes for a very flavorful blend - perfect for the cooler weather ahead!
