Theeee’reee baaaackkkk!

Watch out little ghosties and ghoulies. Our Tricky Treats™ are truly spooky. Hauntingly familiar yet not quite what it seems. Fruits and midnight black tea blended together to make frightfully delicious tea. Blood red of course! It will leave you screaming for more.

Ingredients:
All organic Chinese black tea, cinnamon, rosehips, apple, hibiscus, blackberry leaves, orange peels, cloves, allspice, chrysanthemum, candies and natural flavors. This blend contains caffeine.

Brewing Instructions:
As with all top quality teas, scoop 2-4 teaspoons of tea into the teapot (make the chai a bit stronger than you would normally make tea). Pour in fresh boiling water, steep for 2-4 minutes (to taste), stir (virtually all the leaves will sink), strain and pour into your cup, add lots of milk, and SBS Teas sugar to taste. Alternatively brew the tea in hot milk, this take a bit more effort but it tastes great!

Iced Tea Instructions:
Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold milk. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold milk. Garnish and sweeten to taste. Makes 1 liter/quart

‘Tricky Treats’ is a Halloween limited edition from SBS Teas. I don’t believe it was available this year, or if it was it came and went so quickly that it’s no longer on the website! That’s rather too bad, as it makes it hard to provide information about the tea, but I’ll try my best.

So in my bag of this blend I can see black tea, flowers (chamomile would be my best guess?) , little chocolate candies, cloves, cinnamon, and candy sprinkles. There’s also random chopped up bits of this and that, but I don’t know them by sight.

This is a sweet tea. It reminds me a little bit of a mild cinnamon candy. There’s the familiar cinnamon tingle, but the blend is more complex, with a rich ‘mulled spice’ flavor that is sweetened with the sugary taste of the multicolored sprinkles.

Side note: I’ve never seen sprinkles in a tea before. First time for everything!

Honestly, I think this blend really captures Halloween. It’s an adult flavor with warm spiciness and just a hint of trick-or-treaters’ candy. Quite yummy.

I’m a dork and I found the website with the information on this tea and updated the information. It sounded so neat!

Awesome :D That’s so cool – how’d you find it? I have a mighty heap of other teas from this company that I need to find better descriptions for!

Very clever. She used the Wayback Machine to find the descriptions. I hadn’t thought of doing that. Here’s the URL for future waybacking: http://www.archive.org/index.php

Yay sprinkles in tea! That’s one reason I like Adagio’s Birthday blend so much. It has sprinkles!

Yep, the Wayback Machine is extremely useful. :-)
