Tea of the Week for June 13, 2016!

I was inspired to create this tea when I came across a recipe for a Rosemary Tangerine Cooler which is a rum-based cocktail. I love to cook with herbs and I’ve been wanting to experiment with adding more herbs to my tea blends so when I saw this recipe, it was a light bulb moment for me and I decided that I had to try the combination of rosemary and tangerine in a tea.

I didn’t want to focus so much on the rum aspect of the “cooler” – although there is a hint of rum flavor in this blend. I wanted the focus to be the tangerine and the rosemary. I’m really happy with the result – there’s a big, bright tangerine note and the rosemary adds a really nice, earthy flavor with just a hint of pine-like and mint-like notes.

I started with a base of Thyolo OP1 Green Tea from the Satemwa estate in Malawi – it’s a fair-traded, rainforest-alliance certified green tea – and then I added some organic Chinese Sencha. I added dried tangerine sections and organic, dried rosemary.

It’s different – not your usual cuppa – but I think you’ll enjoy it!

ingredients: fair trade green tea, organic green tea, dried tangerine sections, organic rosemary, organic natural flavors.

Picked this one up purely for curiousity, as I haven’t had rosemary in a tea before. While it is interesting, it is reminding me too much of medicinal blends for my liking, and therefore I don’t think I’ll be trying rosemary teas in the future. I was also hoping for a bit more tangerine – which smelled great when I opened the package – but it was definitely relegated to the background a bit by the rosemary.

Probably not a tea for everyone, but is a fun experiment. If you are a fan of rosemary and/or minty teas, I think you may enjoy this.

This one was a bit of a disappointment for me. I got excited about the prospect of tangerine with the slightest hint of rosemary in the back somewhere. Alas, that was not to be quite like that.
