This is the first tea of the week for June – which is on the website now (available in limited quantities at the moment, more will probably be added to the website later this week.) This tea is inspired by my youngest daughter Lilith who just graduated from High School (in the top 5% of her class, no less! I’m a very proud mama!) – her favorite flavor combination is orange and vanilla.
I cold-brewed this overnight last night in a big mason jar – and she and I both love this tea! It’s a good balance of orange and vanilla. It smells amazing too.
The sencha is a good base because it has a natural ‘creaminess’ to it that works well with the vanilla. It’s not to acidic from the orange, it’s not too sweet from the vanilla. It’s light, refreshing and definitely one I’ll want to keep around for the summertime!
