From our 2018 12Teas of Christmas Box!
This is my second time reblending this tea – and I’m so happy because this was one of my first blends that I created shortly after taking over 52Teas.
My original description for this tea says:
One afternoon as I was perusing through my Pinterest feed, I found a recipe for Blackberry Custard. It looked exceptionally good and whenever I see a dessert recipe that looks exceptionally good, I immediately think about how I’d translate that recipe to a tea flavor. Yep, I’m kind of nerdy like that. So I thought … hmmm, blackberry custard sounds like a winning idea for a tea. Then I remembered that there was already a Blackberries & Cream Shou Mei so how different could a blackberry custard really be?
So, I thought, what if it had a delightfully buttery pastry crust? Well, then it would be a Blackberry Custard Tart.
So that’s what inspired me to make this with my green tea base (a blend of organic Chun Mee and organic Gunpowder). I added blackberry, custard and pastry flavors. Then I tossed in some of those big, beautiful freeze-dried blackberries. This is really good!
This tea has become such a favorite with my customers (and me!) that I stuck true to the recipe, and this is really just as delicious as I remember it: sweet blackberries, creamy custard, and a hint of buttery pastry. Sounds good to me!
