I told you there was a Frigg tea coming! The apples dried, and I was able to blend this delicious tea up last night. Unfortunately, picture taking must happen during the day for the best lighting, but here it is now!
This tea is like a garden in a cup! Frigg’s garden, to be exact. With an earthy green tea base, roses, lavender and jasmine create a lovely and delicate floral flavour and scent. Clove spiced apples are near at hand for a delicious snack as you peruse the Her gardens.
Enjoy the tea while you do your housework or craft, or share a cup with Her, and you can never go wrong with simply making a cup for Her as an offering!
Each bag makes about 20 cups (which is why each different tea blend comes in differently weighted bags dependent on the ingredients). Use one teaspoon per 8 oz of boiling water (more or less depending how strong you enjoy your tea), and voila! A garden in a cup!
Pop on by the mythological collection to check out Frigg’s tea, and stay tuned, because ingredients have been gotten to make a delicious Yuletide tea or two!
I finally went out and bought some honey to make me some mead! No, I don’t have the fanciest equipment, but the recipe I found was for beginners (like me!) I tried going to a place I know that sells carboys yesterday (I was thinking that they’d probably sell rubber stoppers and air locks as well), but apparently they’ve gone out of business since the last time I went there! 😦 Oh well, I ended up doing what the recipe said to do with water jugs. I was only going to do one, but the big jug of honey had enough for two one gallon jugs. So the first one is just the recipe without anything else in it, and the second has a couple allspice pods and a clove. I think what my plan is going to be is to make two gallons a month (if I can keep it to that little, lol!), and make plenty of different blends and such of fruits and herbs and spices.
So it’s been about 24 hrs, and the yeast activated right away when I first mixed everything up. I put them in the tub last night to make sure there were no explosions, but the balloons seem to be doing a wonderful job at slowly letting the gasses out while not letting anything in! Everything is just bubbling away and smelling delicious already!
I’m so excited, I don’t know how I’ll be able to wait until they’re finished in six months!
The first pic is right after everything was mixed, the second was today after taking them out of the tub.
So, I decided to dilute the possible clove problem. I had such a d’oh moment when putting that in the mix! Of course I can put it in a bath and be fine, cuz well, there’s a tonne of water to dilute it, lol. Anywho, I just made another batch and mixed it in with the original. We shall see how it goes! 😀
