Handcrafted Tea Party

SDG_9809 Tea Trunk, is definitely one of my favourite brands to work with. I personally love all of their gourmet tea blends that Snigdha creates, and my latest favourite has to be the Long Island Green Tea.

Launched at the Handcrafted Tea Party at Silverspoon Gourmet today.

Most of the tea tasting events I have attended usually involves tasting various teas and the food paired with it. What made this one different was the hands on bit where everyone was asked to create their own blend.

How to prepare your own blend. 

The following tea-food pairing was done:

1. Ginger Basil Iced Tea with Grape and Brie Crostini
2. Long Island Iced Tea with Lemon Tart
3. Oriental Bliss (vanilla, lemongrass, coconut in Green and White Tea)
with Tea Sandwich
4. Make your own tea blend with Raspberry and White Chocolate Blondies
Here are some of the pictures from the event:

And of course my favourite bit was creating our own blend. For this I took equal parts of Green and White tea then added cinnamon, vanilla, star anise, ginger and some dried coconut to it. Wrapped it in a muslin cloth to prepare my first handcrafted tea bag. The blend smells quite delicious, now just need to brew it.
