Tea of the Week for February 5, 2018!
While organizing the studio just before the holidays, I came across a little more fair-trade, single estate Zomba green tea - the last of my stock - and I determined that I had just enough to either do a reblend with it or create an all-new blend. Since I had already reblended two teas toward the end of last year, I decided that I should make a new blend. The natural fruity tones of the Zomba lends itself well to a fruit flavored tea so I decided that a coconut tea was the way to go!
After my first taste test, I decided that I needed a little bit of something to cut the coconut just a bit - so I added a bunch of freeze-dried raspberries to the blend. The raspberry isn't as strong as the coconut - the coconut is clearly the star of this cuppa - but there's just enough raspberry to add a pop of brightness to the cup and a slight tangy berry quality to the finish. Really nice - it's kinda like a coconut tea that's been kissed with raspberries - and what better way to celebrate Valentine's day?
This is a sweet, creamy coconut-ty Zomba tea - with just a hint of sweet-tart raspberry!
