Spiced Hibiscus & Rose Tea, 75g
Our spiced hibiscus & rose tea is a naturally caffeine free infusion of hibiscus, rosehip, rosebuds and anardana with tingly warmth from a combination of aromatic spices. When infused, it turns the water a delightful rosy hue and releases delicious tangy and spicy flavours.
The fruity and subtly floral taste is complimented by warming spices - ginger, cinnamon, allspice, long pepper and a little ancho chilli. If you like sour flavours, drink it as it is, or add a little sugar or honey to balance out the brightness.
We recommend using 7g of our spiced hibiscus and rose tea per 250ml water. Put the blend in a mug or jug, pour over freshly boiled water and let steep for three minutes, then strain out the spices and enjoy!
WHY DON'T WE ADD SUGAR OR SALT TO OUR BLENDS?
The spices we skilfully combine give such a flavour boost on their own, so we don't add salt or sugar to our blends. Some spices have an inherent sweetness - combining these makes delicious, sweet-tasting blends. The one exception to our rule on sugar is our Sugar Spice finishing blend, in which we use small pieces of crystallised ginger for its delicious chewy texture and spicy-sweet flavour. Other spices we utilise for their deeply savoury qualities. Salt is sometimes used whilst processing sumac berries and in curing chillies such as Urfa and Aleppo, and as such, may be present in small quantities in some of our blends. We use red miso powder, which is made with salt, as an ingredient in our Savoury and Rich spice blend.
You may like to add a sprinkle of salt to your food in combination with our finishing blends - we leave the choice up to you!
A NOTE ON STORAGE
Spices are best stored in airtight packaging, away from sunlight and heat. To keep our finishing blends as fresh as possible, we pack them into screw-lid tins. Replace the lids after each use, and store away from sunny windowsills and sources of heat, such stovetops. If you forget to replace the lid, the finishing blend may begin to lose aroma. Please note that even if you keep our finishing blends sealed securely, you may notice some clumping - this is because we do not use anti-caking additives. Don't worry if this happens - simply give the blend a stir or use your fingertips to break down any small clumps.
