Perfectly Pink #LadyMendl blend from #SunshineCottage

Another lovely tea from the crafty world of Etsy, this time it’s Lady Mendl blend from Sunshine Cottage.  The Lady Mendl tea blend is based on a cocktail of the same name.  The alcoholic beverage was all pink pizzazz, served in a martini with grapefruit juice, cointreau, and gin. With so much pink citrus in the mix, this tea is surprisingly creamy, with delicious, juicy grapefruit at the forefront, and sweet, candied orange in the undertone.  There are even passion fruit pieces in the dry leaf, adding to the popping, tropical flair of these flavors. The black tea base is Read More

I am happy to report, for all licorice haters out there, that is not the case here! Spice and raisin are the shining stars here. Just a hint muscatel to bridge the raisin and rum notes together. Dry but sweet and it pairs nicely with the lingering maple. Mulling spices warm everything up. Alas, there is no cream to be found. The base is a little more brisk than I would like but it connects to the Read More
