Before we get into the delicious tea… I heard the other day the price of vanilla bean is going to skyrocket because the storms up north in Australia wiped out a large portion of the vanilla farms… better buy shares, as it’s already the second most expensive spice in the world after saffron… fun fact!
The expense is due to the short life of the flower which produces the vanilla bean. It only lasts for one day. Can you imagine only being alive for 1 day… you’d have so much to pack in!
The beans are hand-picked and then cured, wrapped, and dried in a process that takes 4 to 6 months.
Now onto the tea. Vanilla vibes is a black tea base with a blend Ceylon, Assam, Darjeeling and Yunnan. All the best black teas rolled into one perfect cup. We like to spoil you like that!
To sweeten it up we’ve thrown in, I mean lovingly blended in, vanilla and soft marshmallow root to sweeten it up.
Tall cut lemongrass and a bold punch of ginger to bring it home. This one will leave you zinging and wondering what makes it special. I’ll let you in on the secret, it’s passionflower and a touch of oat straw that sets it apart from the rest!
Perfect for blending cocktails and or iced tea it’s refreshing and delightful. Of course, this doesn’t mean we should sneeze at it warm either, essentially it’s an all round delight.
It’s not only delicious but healthy too! Lemongrass is known for giving you energy, clearing up your skin and even reducing fever and pain, while ginger is excellent for the gut and also fighting bugs.
But we just drink it because it’s delicious!
The jewel in the crown of this months box, the princess indeed. Squeeze Me, but only the way I like it.
Brew this one hot, but not too hot, and for not too long a time and you’ll get the best out of these fabulous leaves.
Blended with Chun Mee, which is the highest grade of the well known chinese green tea Young Hyson. Known as the Lucky Dragon.
You pretty dragon you!
The tea is picked in early spring which is pretty much perfect for this time of year, and to give it even more spring-nhess we’ve teamed up with the mandarin, a citrus which screams spring!
Slightly floral, all things citrus and of course, the finest of the fine… just for you.
