Tea of the Week for May 15, 2017!
As you might already be aware, we have a Snickerdoodle Re-Imagined Black Tea that is pretty popular. As I was reblending that tea for our 12 Teas of Christmas box last holiday season, I got to thinking that these flavors would work really nicely with a honeybush-rooibos blend. The naturally sweet, nutty, honeyed flavors of this herbal base would play well to the vanilla, cinnamon and cookie flavors of the tisane.
So I decided to go ahead and try it out – and I’m so glad I did! This might just be even better than the black tea blend – and as one who would select a black tea over a honeybush or rooibos tea 9 times out of 10, that’s saying something.
For this blend, I started with organic rooibos and honeybush – then I combined them with cinnamon, vanilla bean and some calendula petals (all organic, of course!) I added some natural flavors to create a freshly-baked cookie experience. Yum!
