Fireside Tea. A winter blend, if there ever was one!
This spiced and fruity black-tea based blend was created after I asked my mum what ingredients she thought would make a perfect cup of tea for chilly nights. We brainstormed, blended, tasted and repeated. And this is what we finally created: Fireside Tea. Named by my sweetheart.
Fireside Tea blends earthy Assam tea with cinnamon and citrus (orange peel) and spice (ginger), and finally rounds itself out with fruity notes of rosehips and cranberries.
We have been drinking this tea almost every night the past month or two... our favourite preparation is to pour 1 tablespoon over with boiling water, let sit 5-7 minutes, and add 1-2 teaspoons of raw sugar and a generous splash of milk or... gulp... cream.
Now, get that fireplace lit and enjoy!
