Tea of the Week for July 2, 2018!
For those of you who have been fans of 52Teas for several years now, you may remember the Tomato, Basil & Black Pepper Black Tea that I reblended about two years ago. It was a reblend of Frank's version, which he called LiberTEAS Tomato Basil & Black Pepper Black Tea - because I was the one who inspired the tea.
Back when I was originally pestering Frank to create the blend, I had envisioned a green tea - not a black tea. He convinced me to try it as a black tea instead, and I really loved that tea - but I still wanted to try a green tea version of it. Now that I'm the one doing this Mad Tea Artist thing, I decided it was time to try it!
I started with a base of organic Chinese Green teas: Gunpowder, Chun Mee and Yun Wu. To this I added freeze-dried tomatoes, basil, and black peppercorns (as well as some Indian long pepper).
If you enjoyed the black tea version, I think you'll appreciate this lighter green tea version of the tea. It offers a very pleasing balance between sweet and savory and I find it to be a perfect tea for summer.
