Emily Dickinson's Jasmine Tea Blend
In the years she spent away from society, Emily Dickinson cultivated an extensive garden. In it, she grew jasmine flowers, cornflowers, roses, and many other flowers, plants and herbs. These flowers appear repeatedly in her poetry so our blend had to be floral.
We created a delightful combination of jasmine tea and rose petals that brews to a light ecru cup with long green leaves and rose petal accents.
This delicate tea hits you with a strong jasmine taste that’s sweetened and mellowed with the subtle flavors of the rose petals.
Ingredients: Jasmine tea, rose petals, jasmine blossoms, marigold petals and blue cornflower petals.
Direction: Brew tea at 195º - 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.
