Tea of the Week for March 26, 2018!
Yeah, it's getting out of what I think of as "Chai Season" but when I blended this, we here the Pacific Northwest were experiencing freezing temperatures and were even expecting snow (which did arrive in the last half of February). So, I was in this weird kind of 'mood' - blending teas that reminded me of spring while still quite enjoying the spicier 'cold weather' flavors. At about that same time when I was in that mood, our local produce market had some beautiful pears for sale and it called to me to craft a pear tea.
So I brought together these ideas: early spring but still experiencing winter's chill and one of my favorite fruits - pears - in this one tea: Pear Chai!
I started with an organic green tea blend of Chinese Gunpowder and Chun Mee (When I think of 'spring' I think green tea!) and added pears and some warm and lovely spices: Cinnamon, Allspice, Ginger and Cardamom. Not necessarily the most "traditional" blend of chai spices, but I think that they work nicely with the softer pear flavors.
