This is the Tea of the Week for January 7, 2019. The theme for this month is “Retro Candy Shop” – inspired by old fashioned candies (mostly British Candies but also one of my favorites from my childhood). This is the one from my childhood favorites. Remember those little strawberry candies – the hard candies that were wrapped in the shiny strawberry wrapper? This tea was inspired by those candies.
It has a really nice strawberry flavor – and the lighter base of Ceylon and Nilgiri allow the strawberry to shine through. It’s a little sweeter than true-to-the-fruit (because, you know, it’s a candy-like version) but certainly not as sweet as the candy – the tea cuts through that a bit.
I’m happy with how this one turned out. (Oh – and the boxes are going out over the course of the next three days!)
