Tea of the Week for July 17, 2023!
What’s the best part of summer? Fruit!
With this blend, I decided to celebrate two of my favorite fruits: Peaches & Plums. I started with a blend of very special Fujian black teas: a Jin Guanyin & a Huang Jin Gui. Both of these teas are traditionally Oolong teas, but these were fully fermented into black teas! So you have the smooth mouthfeel of an Oolong but the deep, rich flavor of a black tea with this blend.
The combination of these two teas made the perfect base for the stone fruits. It’s sweet, smooth & delicious! It’s also vegan, gluten-free, allergen-friendly & all natural!
ingredients: black teas, organic peaches, organic plums & organic natural flavors
more about this tea: I don’t know what else to say but AMAZING! I love these two Fujian black teas. Typically, Fujian black teas tend to have a chocolate-y note. However, these two Fujian teas have a sweeter, fruitier tone to them, making them the perfect base for a tea featuring peaches & plums.
If you enjoy peaches & plums, I think you’re going to love this tea!
to brew: I recommend using 3g of tea (make sure there’s some fruit in your measurement!) to 12oz of nearly boiling water (205°F). Steep for 3 minutes. Strain & allow to cool for at least 10 minutes. Enjoy!
serving suggestion: I love this tea served hot without additions. I also enjoyed it quite a bit with a teensy bit of brown sugar in it which evoked memories of summertime in my gramma’s kitchen after she just baked a cobbler! Be sure to get the most out of this tea – it does well with a resteep!
This tea also makes a remarkable iced tea.
