Take lemon verbena, a handful of blueberries, a dash of lavender, a pinch of ginger and beautiful nasturtium blossoms to create this Madly delightful tea.
Watch as your water transforms into a rich deep purple cup, full of soft lavender, succulent blueberries, bright lemon verbena, floral nasturtium and a hint of spicy ginger.
After deciding to take myself seriously (JUST SLIGHTLY! Let's not get carried away) and I realized that I desired to explore my personal Wonderland of tea blending, this was the first blend I created. It was late at night and we had just put Baby Hatter to bed and I was babbling on to Jonathan about taking my blending beyond the stuff I had created for Baby. My classmate had just given me a handful of nasturtium flowers and leaves from her garden and I sat in my kitchen nibbling the peppery leaves and delicate flowers, looking up a recipe for nasturtium pesto. And then I thought about using it for a tea blend instead. I went to bed that night, but I don't think I slept at all and the moment the sun peeked, I was up and in my garden plucking fresh lavender and lemon verbena. I gave it a taste and wanted to highlight the pepper of the nasturtium leaves, but just a little, so I grated in a little ginger. It was good, but it needed on last thing to round out the flavours... by that point Baby Hatter was awake and shoving blueberries into her chipmunk cheeks. I looked at her, she looked at me, her eyes saying 'don't you dare, lady,' but I did...can you believe it? I pointed up to the left, she looked, I swiped. It all happened so fast and I have no regrets.
With flavours so intense, 1 spoonful of tea can be reused several times until all the flavour is gone.
