Bronte Sisters' Black Tea Blend
Who can forget the indomitable Bronte sisters and the classics they wrote.
The Bronte family kept an orchard and garden where the sisters spent much of their time exploring, drawing, and writing.
Charlotte was more inclined to draw the flowers and the plants than to stop and smell them, but Anne and Emily were happy to get their hands dirty with a little gardening.
Emily especially, who was known to be a bit of a recluse, could often be found taking long walks and enjoying nature.
Our Bronte Sisters tea blend combines pear, apple, and gooseberry flavors to make a sweet and fragrant blend that’s reminiscent of an orchard stroll. The flavors in this blend meld together in perfect harmony and the taste lingers deliciously on the palate.
Ingredients: Black teas, papaya pieces (papayas and sugar), flavorings, raspberry pieces, alfalfa leaves and marigold petals.
Directions: Brew tea at 212º - steep for 3 minutes.
1 oz of loose tea makes approximately 10-12 cups of tea.
In unprecedented times, we need to find our zen and appreciate the little things in life that still make us feel whole and good. Practice "Hygge".... it's not too difficult but when the Danes are constantly placing in the top five of the World Happiness Report, they may just know something we don't.
“It’s half past three, everything must stop for tea”, there isn’t anything more British than their love for tea and the customs that follow it. There really isn’t a problem or an emotional issue that can’t be resolved with a spot of tea. Their quaint tea drinking traditions are a core part of Britishness and has its roots in time honored customs steeped in history.
Tea and Brits are a just like peaches and cream – a good fit, made perfect. There are quite a few English tea traditions, but we want to share a few quirky and interesting ones.
