Tea of the Week for August 28, 2017!

OK, OK – to be completely honest – my Gramma didn’t really make spice cake. At least, not that I am aware of. However, she was the best baker that I knew – granted, I’m probably a little biased because she was Gramma but that woman could bake a pie like nobody’s business – she made the most amazingly awesome baked treats – cookies, pies, cakes – but I don’t really recall a spice cake if I’m to be totally honest.

So you might be wondering why I named this tea “Gramma’s Spice Cake” – well, that’s because IF she did make a spice cake, this is exactly what I would expect it to be like. It would have apricots and almonds. It would have cinnamon and ginger and just a hint of nutmeg. It would be sweet and delicious – just like everything else that emerged from Gramma’s oven.

I started with a base of Chinese black teas (golden Yunnan, Fujian and Assamica grown in the JingMai Mountains) and added apricots, almond essence, ginger, cinnamon, freshly shaved nutmeg and just a touch of flavoring to create a cake-like taste. (Don’t worry, it’s allergen free!)

This tastes like a celebration of that special time of year when summer leaves us a bounty of delicious fruits (including apricots!) and fall is about to begin.

Yes, this is indeed what the spice cake of my dreams would taste like – this tastes just like what I’d expect a spice cake from Gramma’s kitchen to taste like!
