Day 13: Bonfire Toffee | Tea Advent 2019

Smoky Lapsang Souchong & sweet apple mingle together in this irresistible blend of savoury & sweet. Perfect for the chillier season. Sumptuous and comforting! 🔥

So, what was the inspiration for this blend?

Autumnal November nights inspired this blend! We wanted to sip on something that would warm us from the inside and tasted delicious... it's a bit of a secret but we were actually aiming for Toffee Apple.. and missed! BUT we loved this smokey caramel & apple tea, it was a no-brainer to keep it! 😁

The Legend of the Russian Caravan!

Bonfire Toffee contains one of our most interesting ingredients - smoked tea leaves! These leaves are traditionally found in a Russian Caravan tea blend & the most famous smoked tea is Lapsang Souchong.

Russian Caravan tea is named after the ancient trade route from China to Russia (the silk road) that traders would take to transport all sorts of teas, spices & other goods in the 18th century. There would often be 'caravans' of camels loaded up with goods, including tea leaves, in baskets.

 

This journey would take 6 months to complete & over the route the aromas of the campfires & animals would infuse into the tea leaves & give them a unique flavour.

In modern times the tea leaves are smoked over pinewood fires to recreate that unique smoked aroma & taste.

🔥 Smokey Spirits - 🍸 not  👻 🔥

 One of our favourite things to do with this blend is to infuse it into spirits ... scotch, bourbon, vodka or dark rum work best!

 

How To Make A Smoky Spirit:

Add 4 - 6 teaspoons of your tea of choice in a Cold Brew Tea Bottle (or any glass bottle).

🍸

Leave to infuse for 3 - 4 hours or overnight. You can leave it in the fridge or just in a cool place. 

🍸

After it's infused (don't leave it longer than 24 hours) strain out the tea leaves and keep your spirit in a resealable bottle or jar.

🍸

We like to serve it on the rocks with ice or you could make it into a fun cocktail by topping with lemonade, tonic, apple juice or bitters!

🍸

💙 Happy brewing! 💙
