Tea of the Week for May 14, 2018!
My newest "Prince Tribute" tea - which I should have actually released as a June tea to correspond with his birthday (June 7) but my inventory required a last minute shuffle of what teas I'd make for this month so I needed to change things around a bit and make this one for this month instead.
My first (and only other) Prince Tribute tea was "When Doves Cry" - which was a white tea blended with Apricot and Vanilla and included candied violets as an ingredient - was really quite an expensive blend (to date, my most expensive blend) because of those candied violets (they're pricey!) so this time around, I wanted to make something that was a little more affordable. This one is not quite as fancy, but it is quite tasty!
The idea behind the blend is a mint peach lemonade but I didn't want to kick it in full-on lemonade mode because I've done a few lemon teas lately - so the lemon here is really delicate - like an accent flavor. I also did not want the mint to overpower the peach - and I think that I managed to achieve what I set out to do with this blend.
I started with organic Chinese Sencha and added spearmint, freeze-dried peaches and lemon balm. It's sweet, it's peachy, it has a lovely mint note that isn't overpowering and balances itself well with the juicy peach notes. A really smooth, refreshing cuppa for summer that tastes really nice as a hot tea, but even better as an iced tea!
