Getting down to the last of this lovely tin of tea, and my how it’s grown on me! I thought I’d come up with a real dud. But this also reminds me that it’s been a while since a T2 Tea Society in-store event… hmm.
Anyway… #memtea. This guy. Had some cold brewed at work today. I love the colour it comes out! Such a lovely blush pinky/red, somewhere in the middle there. I think I’ll brew up the last of it in a big jug and spend my three day weekend drinking it.
Yes, good plan.
So, this is the custom blend I came up with at the T2 Tea Society event earlier this week. It’s got:
50% T2 Chocolate
25% T2 Riotous Rose
25% T2 Just Rose
I was pretty anxious about making a blend from limited pre-mixed blends and I have to say I continued to be anxious after trying the blend because it just… wasn’t right. I shied away from it for a couple of days, fretting about the ratios and how the heck I was gonna fix it.
I brought some in to work today to see what I could do. I started by adding around 3/4 tsp of raw sugar…
I don’t really get the chocolate from the black tea, but I’ve got some Cocoa Loco at home I COULD add to see if I could up that. In the end it doesn’t really matter, the rose is pretty prominent (especially after eating some Fry’s turkish delight) and I’m happy and RELIEVED.
This is a smooth blend with juicy orange and warming spices that I made to replace a “Christmas” tea that I’d run out of. Maybe not as complete as that original tea, but still very good and made out of what I had on hand. Hubby will ask for this as a morning cup, and that makes it rather rare so I’m happy to oblige! Haven’t tried it cold yet (probably without the added cinnamon stick), but I bet it’d be pretty good!
