Tea of the Week for September 4, 2017!
I have a confession. I have been cheating on tea with a cola. Not like all the time - not even every day . . . but every once in a while, I'll crack open a can of the ginger cola that's made by one of the 2 big cola giants. I'm not going to name names because I don't want to get a 'cease and desist' order - but it's in a slender, tall, bright copper-orange can and it's sold by individual cans rather than by the 6 or 12 pack.
Anyway, I originally only bought one can of this stuff - you know - just to try it. Curiosity. But I was hooked after my first sip. It's so good - that little touch of ginger cuts through the syrup-y sweetness that usually turns me off when it comes to soda.
I happen to like the cola flavored teas (in most cases, more than I like cola itself) so I decided I should try to craft a ginger cola black tea to get me over my affair with the cola because I like it better when tea is the main beverage in my life.
So I started with a base of black teas from China (Golden Yunnan, Fujian & Assamica grown in the Jing Mai Mountains) and added ginger as well as some candied (sugared) ginger and some cola essence. And WOWZA! I'm loving it! This is tasty as a hot tea but it excels as an iced tea!
