I got this tea around Christmas time from a local tearoom and it has to be the neatest tea ever! I don’t know exactly what is in here so I will do my best to take a guess. Basic black tea base with plum flavoring and pieces of hibiscus. There are also little pieces of something silver (I think they have to be some sort of sugar crystal).
These silver pieces dissolve in the water and make the tea SPARKLE! I kid you not. The tea sparkles, or perhaps shimmers is a better description, when the light hits it. It is really cool looking and actually tastes really good for a flavored tea. I don’t think the silver pieces add any flavor or sweetness. They just as a sparkle. Hoping it is safe to consume, but it sure does look awesome!
EDIT TO ADD:
A quick photo of it that isn’t very good, but you get the idea-
Had afternoon tea this past weekend at a local tearoom and was served this tea. I immediately purchased some because it is one of the best flavored teas I have ever had.
Black tea base with rooibos, almonds, and hazelnut. I’m sure there is some flavoring involved but there are actual almond slices and hazelnut pieces throughout the leaves. It is incredibly warm and comforting. A perfect fall tea that is very flavorful and not bitter. Steep time of 4 minutes makes a wonderful cup. Just wish I could order this online instead of driving downtown. I’m lazy like that.
