Tea of the Week for June 24, 2019!

“It means no worries ~ for the rest of your days . . . " Yeah, I’m excited about the live action movie coming out. I’m a Disney nerd, what can I say? At 5 or 6, I was the annoying, spoiled rotten little brat who – on a Saturday afternoon – would pester her dad to take me to the movie theatre to watch Bambi or Robin Hood or Aristocats for the 137th time.

And you know what? I never really outgrew those animated films: I’d gladly watch ’em all again another 137 times. I loved them then, I love them now. The same is true of the newer generation of films like Beauty & The Beast & Lion King.

I’m as much a sucker for the live action films as well – I watched the live action Beauty & The Beast three times in the theatre before it came out on Vudu and have watched it several more times since. I’m expecting to love the Lion King live action just as much so I crafted this tea in anticipation for the new movie.

Did you know that there’s actually a Disney inspired Hakuna Matata cocktail? There are actually a couple of different recipes online with the same name, but the recipe that inspired this tea includes peach vodka, amaretto, orange juice and mango. To create this tea, I started with an organic blend of green teas – Chun Mee & Gunpowder – and added amaretto essence (alcohol free!) peaches, oranges & mangos.

So yummy! And it’s organic, alcohol free, gluten free, VEGAN & allergen free! No worries!

organic ingredients: green teas, peaches, mangos, oranges & natural flavors

This is the final “tea of the week” for June – although this month we did have two ‘bonus’ teas – one featured reblend (which will be announced later this coming week) and one special anniversary tea that will be announced later in July (this tea will be exclusive to subscribers for the first 30 days).

So, this is the tea of the week for June 24. It is inspired by the upcoming live action Lion King movie – and the flavor combinations are inspired by the recipe for a “Hakuna Matata” cocktail that I found some time ago that is made of peach vodka, amaretto, orange juice & mango.

This is the tea in my cold-brew jar today. I steeped it overnight and truth be told, I probably steeped it a bit longer than that because my sleep cycle is pretty messed up. But, it’s still quite delicious and doesn’t taste bitter despite the long steep time. It’s sweet, nicely fruity with a lovely almond note: kinda nutty, fruity & light. It makes a really refreshing iced tea.

I first tested this as a hot tea, I found that the amaretto notes seemed to emerge stronger as a hot tea – as an iced tea, the amaretto is more balanced with the fruit. The fruit tastes more like a medley of fruit rather than distinctly orange, mango & peach, but if I focus on it, I can pick out the mango and the peach. Not so much so on the orange, which seems to be more of just a bright note there amongst the other flavors. As an iced tea, I taste more peach and almond – followed by the mango. The orange is still more like an accent than anything else.
