Our 10th Day of Christmas Tea!
Another reblend - this one was a top vote getter from our poll! White Christmas Black Tea is a blend of black teas, mint and marshmallow to create a crisp yet sweet creamy treat in your teacup!
The original description of this tea said:
So, I think it’s probably safe enough now to post this and not spoil the surprise of anyone who purchased one of our 12 Teas of Christmas samplers (which culminated in a sample of this brand new blend, our Christmas blend for 2012).
Here’s our premium black teas blended with peppermint, marshmallow root and organic flavors. I know we’ve done a few marshmallow/mint blends this year, but this might just be the crowning jewel. As a few of our 12 Teas of Christmas sampler purchasers have already commented, the black tea lends a faint chocolate note to the mixture of mint and marshmallow. Get some for yourself today; it’s a great treat to pick you up after the collective, Christmas-is-over SIGH.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
Well, I strayed a bit from the original recipe. First, I utilized a blend of Fujian & Assam black teas as well as Laoshan black teas from Verdant to create the base. To that I added essence of wintergreen (instead of essence of peppermint) and added peppermint & spearmint leaves to the blend along with marshmallow root.
My reason for changing up the recipe a bit was because I also intended on crafting the Peppermint Marshmallow Melting in Hot Chocolate tea from last year's holiday promotion and I didn't want to have two exclusively "peppermint" teas in my holiday line-up. I wanted these to be two distinctly different teas, not just in base (and with the addition of cacao nibs & shells in the Peppermint Marshmallow tea) but also in mint profile.
And after tasting this tea, I think I made the right decision. I love the wintergreen notes in this blend!
