Black Tea Blend
Oh Canada! This beautiful tea combines a beautiful Ceylon with sweet apples and tangy cranberries. And what Canadian-themed tea could be complete without a hint of maple? The red and white theme is continued with rosehips and elderflowers. It's the perfect afternoon tea and makes a spectacular iced tea too!
What Makes this Tea so Amazing: When I started putting this blend together, one of the things I was clear on was that I absolutely did NOT want to create yet another "maple flavoured" tea. While I absolutely love maple syrup, I am definitely not a fan of fake maple flavours. But I knew that a Canadian-themed tea had to have some sort of maple in it. The solution? Organic Maple sugar flakes. It add a wonderful hint of maple flavour, a subtle sweetness and great texture. Definitely a great match with the Ceylon.
The freeze dried apples and cranberries from Van Drunan Farms are vibrant in flavour as well as colour and the Pekoe grade Ceylon is so smooth it ties everything together.
