Monday Mashup: Sweet Honey Peach

This week’s Monday Mashup was an utter success. We blended 2 parts Vanilla Honeybush herbal tea to one part Fredericksburg Peach black tea to make a smooth, almost creamy concoction that felt like a warm and decadent peach pie.

The softness of the vanilla in the herbal tea perfectly subdued the harsher qualities of the black tea, leaving you with just the flavors of peach, honey, and vanilla — a combination you can’t help but adore.

As we’ve found ourselves in the winter months, we tasted this tea blend piping hot, but we’ve got a sneaking suspicion it will be just as good — if not better — as a chilly iced beverage to cool you off next summer. Ah, the versatility of tea…just another reason to love Zhi Tea all year long.

What winter mixture should we try next? Thinking up something spicy for Christmas…

Bewitching Blood Orange Brew

With Halloween a mere five days away and Halloweekend already upon us, it’s high time for a recipe that will tickle your tastebuds and spook your soul!

This autumn, we have created a concoction with our Blood Orange tea and organic pomegranate Italian soda, topped off with a hand-shaped ice block. Our favorite combination blends iced Blood Orange tea to pomegranate Italian soda at a 2:1 ratio. (Read our iced tea instructions online for best practices!)

The resulting beverage is fruity and tart without a hint of artificial flavoring – a welcome change from the usually corn-syrup-crammed holiday! To make enough punch for a crowd, pour a 750ml organic pomegranate Italian soda into a large punch bowl and brew 1500ml of Blood Orange iced tea. Add your tea to the bowl for a bloody delicious mixture! For the icy hand floating about in your cauldron, follow these instructions. This sweet and scary punch is sure to please at your big Halloween bash!

P.S. For the ghoulishly grown-up version, add vodka as you see fit.
