This delightful winter blend is inpsired by one of our founder’s favorite Parisian desserts: a mont blanc, or chestnut creme meringue.
Translated as “white mountain,” we’ve adapted the best of this wonderful flavor with hearty and rich, nourishing chestnuts with creamy vanilla and a pinch of orange peel — topped onto one of our favorite black teas.
With a bit of honey and cream, it will be just the thing to get you through the winter, and it makes an excellent recovery drink after spending the day out in the wilds of winter, whether they be more enjoyable (skiing and snowshoeing) or less enjoyable (shoveling the driveway).
Snowy Mountain Black Tea (Chestnut / Meringue)Andy Hayes
I normally turn away from black tea, but the Snowy Day has me coming back! I was worried the blend was going to be overwhelmingly nutty. I was wrong! The tea is savory with a kick of sweetness from the orange. Snowy day tastes like the feeling of a warm blanket and a hot fire rolled up in a cup.
I tried this tea in the advent calendar and liked it so much, I bought a bigger size! I wasn't sure what to think from the description, as sometimes tea with citrus notes can be overpowering, but this one was much stronger on the chestnut, which I LOVE. I really hope this tea sticks around longer because I know I am going to want more!
