A Spicy Rum Sour Twist on the Classic Earl Grey Black Tea!
Another obvious choice for this month’s theme – I mean, I just HAD to craft a tea for the Mad Hatter, right? For this tea, I combined the flavor profiles of a Spicy Rum Sour cocktail with a cup of Classic Earl Grey.
I really love how this tea came out. The flavors of a spicy rum sour (ginger, rum & lemon) and the bergamot from the Earl Grey work together very harmoniously. The bergamot is smooth from the rum. The lemon isn’t too tart, the ginger isn’t too peppery. It’s really just a very pleasant cup to sip – so, so smooth and tasty!
For this blend, I started with an organic blend of Assam, Keemun & Ceylon teas. Then I added cold-pressed oil of bergamot, some lemon myrtle, lemons, ginger root & a touch of rum essence (Don’t worry, it’s alcohol free!)
Having taste tested this as both a hot tea and an iced tea, I will say that I do prefer it as an iced tea – but that opinion could be affected by the fact that we’ve been experiencing some rather warm weather and I tend to just prefer my tea iced when the temperatures reach the 80s and higher . . . so I’ll just say that it’s a winner whichever way you choose to serve it.
This delightful addition to our Mad Tea Party tea collection is organic, alcohol-free, allergen-free, gluten-free & VEGAN!
