October Teas

I know, I know! I said I wouldn’t release any more teas this year, well, I lied apparently lol. I also know it’s still only October, however, when it comes to buying handmade gifts online for the holidays, it’s always best to start early! If you want to make sure your teas arrive in time (not 100% guaranteed as once a package is in the mail, I’ve no more control), please order by December 5th.

I just had some more Yuletide flavour ideas, and needed to get them out so I could have an excuse to make and have some for myself!

Chocolate Orange, Hygge, Mrs Claus’ Kitchen, and Krampus

Along with the usual Yuletide teas of Peppermint Lane, Elven Nog, Midwinter Madras, and Yule, we now have four brand new blends!

Chocolate Orange is the classic holiday treat in a teacup. Green rooibos, Belgian milk chocolate, safflower, and citrus blossom flavour.

Hygge blends rooibos and black tea together forming a wonderful base for Belgian milk chocolate, and almond flavour.

Mrs Claus’ Kitchen is a chocolate truffle in a cup. Blended with rooibos, Belgian milk chocolate, coconut, and hazelnut flavour.

Krampus might be a good idea as an offering if you’ve been especially naughty this year! Smoky Lapsang Souchong black tea is blended with cinnamon and clove.

This group of tea has definitely been a lesson in the fact that knowing when I’m going to be done formulating is not always very predictable! I had been hoping to finish them by the end of April, in fact I had 9 or 10 of them finished! However, a few teas were just not working out for me, flavours weren’t turning out how I wanted them, and then reformulation had to happen.
It’s also a lesson that sometimes flavours that work in baked goods, or food that we actually eat doesn’t translate very well with the ingredients I have for tea. And that’s ok, because now I know!

Iced Teas!

They’re back! And already I’ve been sipping on them, muahaha! And now you get to as well! Wee!

I’ve also been a busy bee thinking up new recipes that I will be getting up in the shop soon! In the meantime, there are a few reformulated blends back up as well!

Thor‘s blend now is a lovely mix of spearmint and peppermint with a little sprinkling of safflower.

Sweetroll has a base of black tea and calendula petals, and the delicious flavours of buttery pastry and creamy, sticky, gooey icing. So much yum!

And lastly for today, Second Breakfast Tea is back! It’s a traditional robust and malty English Breakfast tea blend, and so very comforting as you wake up and get ready to go on your next adventure!

Happy sipping, guys! ❤
