Tea of the Week for August 1, 2016!
Yeah, I'm a Guns N' Roses fan. (My family will tell you that's a bit of an understatement.)
That said, I didn't actually create this tea with Guns N' Roses in mind - I happened to have some Thyolo OP1 Green Tea from the Satemwa Estate in Malawi on hand and in it's pure state, this tea has a naturally citrus-y fruit note that makes it the perfect base for a fruity blend. So I decided to go with Mango (a favorite of mine) and add some coconut (another favorite) and then, to meld with that natural citrus tone of the base tea, I decided to add some lime. Originally, I was going to name it something tropical but I did a tropical tea last month, so I thought - how about Jungle?
And when I think "Jungle" - my mind starts hearing that Axl howl at the beginning of Welcome to the Jungle. And so I decided that I'd call this tropical fruit flavored tea Welcome to the Jungle.
As I stated above, I started with a Thyolo OP1 Green base - it's fair-traded and Rainforest Alliance certified - and I added mango, lime and coconut. It's sweet, tart and delightfully fruity. It's so good that you might find yourself wanting to do the serpentine dance!
