Tea of the Week for July 25, 2016!
Confession Time: I came up with this tea on kind of the "spur of the moment" because one of my planned flavors didn't turn out as planned so I needed something that would be fairly straightforward - something that wouldn't require a lot of tweaking because time was of the essence. I wanted something that I was certain would taste really good because time wasn't on my side at that point. And since it's summertime, I also wanted something that would taste great hot or iced.
So this is what I came up with. Perhaps not as crazy as Coconut French Toast with Cardamom Maple Syrup but it's still really tasty and very refreshing. The black tea is nicely round - not an overly aggressive black tea base - but I think it definitely holds its own. The lemon is bright and tangy. The peppermint is cool and zesty. The flavors don't compete with each other - there's a nice balance between citrus, mint and black tea.
Taster size is approximately 15g.
organic ingredients: black teas, dried lemon segments, lemon verbena, lemon balm, peppermint leaves and natural flavors.
