Did you know our Butterfly Circus Tea makes a wonderful drink whether warm or cold? This tea is a very aromatic floral blend of Gulabi tea, rose buds, jasmine blossoms, dried lemon, sarsaparilla, and rose & jasmine extract. So while the heat is taking out some of the fun out of drinking warm tea, why not try something new for your iced teas? You can pick up a tin through our Etsy shoppe here.
Sometimes it’s hard to think of hot tea in the summertime. At Orange Moon however, we don’t limit our tea to drinking hot, or cold, or limit it at all for that matter. For instance, our Wormwood Queen has turned her family’s Absinthe Tea recipe into a tastey sorbet. Would you like to try it? Here’s the recipe!
2 c water
1 1/3C sugar
Juice of one orange and one lemon
1 1/2 T Mere Henriot’s Elixir
Absinthe for drizzling
Blend 1C water and the sugar over a low flame for 10 minutes. Infuse the absinthe tea in the syrup. Cool, strain the tea, add the orange and lemon juice, and the remaining 25 cl of water. Freeze. Drizzle with absinthe just prior to serving.
Martha Stewart: Jasmine Shortbread Sandwiches with Grapefruit Curd – We do love all things tea. This recipe looks like a fun one to try for the weekend, with a few adjustments of course. 😉 Like using our Batnip Tea in place of the jasmine and making an Orange Curd as opposed to the Grapefruit. Time to put the kettle on! *This was posted to our tea society facebook page. Come give us a follow and join our tea conversation!
