Tea of the Week for January 13, 2020!
This blend was not part of our poll last year for the Holiday box – but that was due to my own omission – I had several requests for it to be reblended but I forgot to include it on the poll so I decided that I’d include this blend in our Reblend themed box.
When Frank originally blended it back in 2011, it was called “Mellie’s Spiced Orappangele” – named after one of Frank’s assistants who suggested the flavor combination. I personally don’t know anyone named Mellie, so I omitted that part of the name of the tea & just focused on the “spiced” & the orange & apple – aka the “orappangele” – part of it.
This is my second time reblending this – the first time I reblended it, it was part of our add-on rewards for our start-up Kickstarter campaign – we reblended it in January 2016 … it’s pretty darned good & definitely worthy of a reblend.
The blend starts with organic Chinese Sencha, to which I added dried oranges & freeze-dried apples, some cinnamon pieces & freshly shaved nutmeg. I really love this blend – it’s fruity & sweet but with just enough warm spice to keep it from being too overwhelmingly fruity. It’s a nice tea to cozy up to on a cold, wintery day – kind of like it is as i write this description.
It’s also VEGAN, organic, gluten-free & allergen-free!
organic ingredients: green tea, apples, oranges, cinnamon, nutmeg & natural flavors
I think it should be pronounced “or-AH-pang-ul-ee” though that sounds nothing like orange or apple.
Many of you know I’ve been struggling lately with a nasty back injury. Well, I got a bit of help from one of Zoomdweebie’s former regular customers and all around awesome person, Mellie, who helped me figure out what to blend for this week.
You may not be able to compare apples and oranges, but we can sure blend them together! Here’s our amazing Chinese sencha green tea blended with real dried apple bits, orange peel, cinnamon chips and even some freeze-dried orange sections. This is going to blow you away.
As always, get it while you can; it’s not going to last long. Anyone who has not received a reply to an email recently, please bear with me. I’m getting caught back up again now, and will be in touch soon.
