REBLENDED for our FUNdraiser!
I originally blended this tea as the tea of the week for September 12, 2016. It was a huge hit and I received requests for its reblend pretty often. It always does my heart good to have people request that my own creations be reblended.
So when the time came that I decided to hold a FUNdraiser to help raise funds for a much needed product label printer, I decided to do a black tea reblend trio. I held a vote on Steepster and this is one of the teas that won in a landslide!
My original description of this tea goes like this:
A month or so ago, I went through a bit of a Chocolate Éclair obsession - wf Then I added some organic roasted cacao nibs and shells for a rich, dark chocolate flavor and minced some organic vanilla bean and combined these ingredients with some organic natural flavors to create a creamy base with hints of pastry. I also tossed in some organic calendula petals for a little color.
The result is a lusciously creamy, sweet custard-y overtone with notes of dark chocolate and a subtle undertone of pastry with a distinct black tea flavor - with this tea you can enjoy 'dessert' for breakfast and not worry about all the fat and calories of the real thing.
I stayed pretty true to the recipe, however, I did add some Golden Yunnan and Assamica (JingMai) to the base to give the overall flavor a more rounded taste. And I think I like this reblend even better than the original batch - and I absolutely LOVED that original batch!
