Tea of the Week for September 20, 2021

This month, I’m focusing primarily on some familiar fall flavors – because FALL is finally here! Oh how I missed fall – especially after the summer we had here in the Pacific Northwest. I know that other parts of the country are used to 100+ degree weather in the summer, but we ARE NOT. I remember one day vividly, the weather app on my phone said that it was 116 degrees, but also said that “it felt like 114”. I recall finding that so funny because I’m thinking, how really different is 114 degrees versus 116? Now, thinking about it – it really isn’t that funny. Perhaps I was suffering from some sort of heat hysteria.

Anyway – I’m quite happy to be finally welcoming fall – & the cooler weather that accompanies it – to the Pacific Northwest.

This blend starts off with a base of organic honeybush. Then I added some vanilla beans, maple essence & maple syrup (by way of organic maple cotton candy – made from pure maple syrup. I’d layer the cotton candy in the blend and a couple of days later, I’d return to find the cotton candy had crystallized in the blend – so I’d crumble those crystals into the blend – so there are tiny little chunks & shards of maple-y goodness that will melt in your tea) Then I added some cinnamon & nutmeg for more coziness.

The result is a warm, cozy cuppa that will comfort you on the chilly nights that are on their way. Seriously yummy. It’s also organic, VEGAN, gluten-free, allergen-free, caffeine-free & all natural!

organic ingredients: honeybush, cinnamon, maple syrup (crystallized cotton candy), calendula petals, nutmeg, vanilla beans & natural flavors

to brew: shake the pouch before you open it to redistribute ingredients. use 3 ½ grams of leaf to 12oz of very hot water (195°F) & steep for 10 minutes. strain & allow to cool for at least 10 minutes. enjoy.

I encourage you to taste this before you sweeten it – this is blended with actual maple syrup so it may be sweet enough without the addition of sweeteners.

As honeybush teas go, this is pretty good. Very cozy, as the name indicates, and sweet but not cloying like many dessert honeybush teas end up (and no oily slick from sprinkles!) Each sip I feel like I taste slightly different spicing, which is kind of interesting. Not a repurchase for me but I’m not going to have trouble finishing this packet as it’s an excellent evening choice.

I tell myself I really need to finish a tea before opening a new one. PHHHHTTT!

I had this one last night as my before-bed cup. It was yummy. Smooth, mildly sweet on its own, with a warm finish. I think it’s the maple that I like so well. It really is a cozy cuppa!

You inspired me today, Maddy. I was so ashamed of my recent “new tea binges” when I read this, I decided to finish a sample I have had for three years or more. And who knows when it was bought. I feel quite noble right now.

Evol Ving Ness

It’s a balancing act though. On one hand, we try to finish up old(er) teas. On the other, we want to drink our teas when they are fresh and full of optimum flavour. And then, we try to not go too overboard when restocking—as if.

Maddy Barone

@gmathis Someday I will have whittled my tea stash down to about 10 permanent teas and a few alternates. Someday.

@ashmanra glad to assist in nobility! LOL

@Evol And I have a few faves that are not on the market anymore that I hate to drink down, yet if I hang on too long they will be tasteless water. W\hat’s a tea drinker to do? And yeah, as if.

gmathis

That is a noble goal and I desperately need to adopt it myself!

September 2021 Tea

This lives up to its namesake and some pretty sweet ingredients (haha..ha). I’m a big fan of the maple, vanilla, and nutmeg here. It’s a super indulgent and satisfying cup and I’m sad that I’m so close to finishing it up (will save it for that American Thanksgiving sipdown theme). Also, 52teas once again shows me that honeybush & rooibos don’t necessarily need to be on my “avoid” list. “No Caffeine” evenings could be fun (if it was always hosted by 52teas).

Taken with milk (maple teas always get the milk).

Flavors: Cinnamon, Maple Syrup, Nutmeg, Vanilla

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 5 min, 0 sec

Honeybush blends really nicely with pastry-ish and ice cream-ish flavors.

Evol Ving Ness

Hear, hear!

52Teas

This is definitely one of my favorite honeybush blends I’ve ever created.

CrowKettle

Oh, yeah.. travelling down memory lane I remember absolutely loving Lemon Cream Cheese Danish Honeybush (wish I’d bought extra) and greatly enjoying Raspberry Almond Cookie (still hoarding this). This one is up there among my favourites too :)

Never got the chance to try ice-cream-ish honeybush flavours but can imagine the magical chemistry (and longingly pine).

Evol Ving Ness

The Walter Bishop whatever whatever was pretty great too. There have been many, actually. I need to get back into the groove of drinking my non-caffeinated blends.

tea-sipper

Yep, if anyone can do honeybush/rooibos blends, it’s 52Teas!
