Haley, are you ready for tea?
Only if it's the new one.
Isn't this a cute little package. I love how it is tied shut with a red-orange ribbon.
The blood orange tea is blended by Eastern Shore Tea Company. We found their ribbon bag teas at Wegmans.
Remember the Black Raven tea?
Yeah, that's awesome. Oh, my goodness. Just opening the bag smells wonderful. I can't wait to try this tea.
The water is almost ready.
The back of the package tells you a little bit about the tea.
And, look, there is a recipe for sorbet too.
Maybe we'll try that in the summer.
This isn't loose leaf tea. Each tea bag is in a foil wrapper like this one.
Will we mix it up with the Black Raven?
No, see the foil wraps are different.
These are tagless tea bags, so make sure you have a spoon or tea bag squeezer handy.
Did you set the timer?
Yes, it's set for 5 minutes.
Great, go gather your books together.
All done steeping. Look at the rich color.
It smells great!
Tastes great too!
Did you put sugar in the cup?
No, but it's really good without sweetener. Great orange flavor; and not bitter or sour.
Next time we could try it with a little honey or agave or sugar in the raw. But just a little. Lid is on...ready to go!
We like tea in the morning. What is your favorite morning beverage?
Reminder: With citrus teas you do not want to add milk. The acid will curdle the milk and spoil your tea.
Have a great day!
