Description

Inspired by the delicious Alsatian cuisine of Chef Jean Joho, this is a dessert tea with the flavors of the tree fruits of that region of France: apricots, cherries and plums.

Details:
Chef Jean Joho, formerly of Alsace and now of Chicago and Las Vegas fame, asked Mike to do a new dessert tea in 2011. This tea is inspired by fruits found in many Alsatian desserts. Many do love its bold fruity flavors. Mike describes it as " Paris on steroids".

Dry Leaves:
China Black is the base of this tea, which is combined with bits of dried cherries.

Liquor:
The liquor of this tea is a lighter brown because of the addition of the cherries to the tea leaves.

Aroma:
When you smell this tea you will feel like you are in an orchard because of the strong scents of cherry and plum.

Caffeine Level:
Caffeinated

Body:
This tea has a medium body and a taste of fresh fruit lingers in your mouth.

Flavors:

Brewing Time:
4 to 5 minutes

Brewing Temp:
212° Fº
