Our Final Tea from the Game of Thrones Collection: Highgarden Green Tea!
This is the last of the Game of Thrones teas – our Featured Reblend/Retro Monday tea – a reblend from my LiberTEAS days – renamed for GOT because it is the perfect blend to celebrate Highgarden!
Our Retro Monday Tea of the Week for April 29, 2019 is:
Highgarden Green Tea (Featured Reblend): If you were drinking my teas back when I was LiberTEAS – then you might remember this blend as it was one of my most popular blends. Back then, I called it Potpourri, but I thought that the blend would make a perfect Highgarden tea! It’s an all-organic blend of Chinese Gunpowder, laurel, lemon myrtle, jasmine, rose buds/petals and dried lemon wedges. It tastes as wonderful as I remember it – it looks gorgeous, smells dreamy and tastes amazing!

Our Tea of the Week for April 22, 2019:
The Night is Dark & Full of Terrors Honeybush/Rooibos Blend – A blend of organic honeybush & rooibos combined with ingredients from a Dark & Stormy cocktail (get it?) but I take a few LiberTEAS with those ingredients to make it something of my own.
A caffeine free base of honeybush & rooibos blended with rum & vanilla essences, ginger root & dried lime wedges. A really tasty cuppa!

OTHER STUFF -
French Vanilla Marshmallow Assam – I am slowly (but surely!) getting caught up here and I finally got our Vanilla tea blended and now posted to the website. You can find it under D’s Teas (our permanent collection) – or you can just click here: https://www.52teas.com/ds-teas-our-permanent-collection/
Ice & Cream Black Tea – Our latest VIT blend inspired by my favorite lollipop from Lollies by Leah. For this blend, I used Bu Lang Black tea and blended in lots of strawberries, some lemons and a touch of vanilla extract. It’s a delight! https://www.52teas.com/ice-cream-black-tea/
Coconut Banana Cream Pie Houjicha/White Tea – This was recently NEWLY restocked, so we do have a few more available for those of you who missed out on the first batch! https://www.52teas.com/coconut-banana-cream-pie-houjicha-white-tea-taster/
My sub box is due for delivery tomorrow! :D
Thanks – I’ll be putting that up soon – but first I want to give the subscribers and the members of the 52Teas club a crack at those teas before they’re one the website. (one of the benefits of subscribing is that you get to “pre-order” the featured reblend of the month before it’s added to the website where it may potentially sell out before you have a chance to order it.)
I don’t watch the show, but:
Goji berry is also called wolfberry. Osmanthus flower is a pretty yellow spangle of aroma, rather than just adding calendula for color. Gunpowder green is a very distinctive shape of leaf for high visual contrast. Yunnan leaves would be smoky(?) which would add depth.
I haven’t watched the show, but from rumors, you should have a brew that turns blood red? :D
Yeah, I think approaching it as concepts instead of flavours might be a good approach. Gives you a little bit more creative freedom as well. So something that steeps blood red with a name like “Red Wedding” might be fun.
I also did a quick Google Search for some canon food/drink mentions in the show, (I’ve only personally seen seasons 1-2) and here are two of the ones that jumped out to me as big enough references that would also translate to tea flavors though:
1. The Dire Wolf shaped loaf of bread that Hot Pie bakes for Arya (Could be like a sweet bread inspired blend – Dire Wolf Cinnamon Raisin Bread? Maybe?)
2. Lemon Cakes, which are apparently Sansa’s favourite food?
Also Lamprey Pie, which is a pie with fish, wine, and spices. Maybe skip the fish, and that could be a loosely interpreted tea version?
And you could always go the route of puns? So, like, a “Jon Snowcone” blend? Idk – just reaching for ideas XD
And nothing wrong with doing a wine inspired blend!
I appreciate the responses so far, please keep them coming before the wight walkers get here!
A song of ice and sencha
jon snow knows nothing…..about tea (sampler pack)
Baratheons black tea
Daenerys Targaryen’s Dragonwell
White tea Walkers
Robb Stark Rooibos
Breinnes Yak Butter
Arya “a girl has no Matcha” Stark
Theon “No dong-ding” Greyjoy
OMG, those are hilarious! I especially love: jon snow knows nothing….about tea, White tea Walkers, and Tyrions Tieguanyin.
I know absolutely nothing about GoT, and even I’ve watched the famous Jon Snow Knows Nothing About Tea video, heh.
The March teas sound fantastic so far! Looking forward to getting them at some point! :D
Excitedly waiting to hear what the Game of Thrones teas ended up being ;)
Thanks! I love it. I love all of the teas for this month – but I do have a few that I consider ‘favorites’. I Drink & I Know Things surprised me with how much I enjoyed it. I really love Dragonglass too – oh! Who am I kidding, I loved them all. :)
