A beautiful mess.
One night, we went to Kate & David’s home to…
I FINALLY gave my friend Lindsay her birthday gift, over two months after her birthday. It took a while to get everything together, and to get Justin to sit down and work on it with me. We created her own line of teas, which we named Lindstea.
I gathered lots of ingredients, including dried fruits, dried herbs, crystallized ginger, rosehips, hibiscus flowers, cacao nibs…I just gathered anything I thought could be steeped into a tea. Then I started mixing and matching to create flavors. These are the ones I came up with:
Fruit Salad: cherry, hibiscus, rosehips, apple, banana, and strawberry
Wake-Up Call: ginger, lemongrass, cardamom, and peppermint
Peachy Keen: peach, apricot, pineapple, cherry, lemon peel, apple, and hibiscus
Citrus-Ginger: ginger, hibiscus, rosehips, and orange peel
Witch’s Brew: apple, hibiscus, ginger, orange peel, lemongrass, peppermint, and rosemary
Savasana: cardamom, black pepper, cloves, chamomile, ginger, and cinnamon
Candy Apple: apple, cinnamon, hibiscus, and rosehips
Peppermint Patty: peppermint and cacao nibs
Berry Spice: cranberry, raspberry leaf, star anise, peppermint, and rosehips
I have no idea whether they will all end up tasting the same or whether the ginger and cardamom flavors will really come out. I tried one flavor (I can’t remember which one), and it was deliciously fruity, and actually kind of sweet. I packaged them in teabags and attached a label that Justin made for me:
And now it’s up to Lindsay to try some and let us all know how they turned out! (No pressure, Linds.)
