According to the dictionary, Eternally means, “without beginning or end; lasting forever; always existing”. So how long have people been eating nuts than? Let’s just say...forever. The first known tools for cracking open nuts appeared during the Pleistocene period about 2,588,000 to 11,700 years ago. In case math ain’t your strong suit, that’s a long time. Prehistoric Humans alive at the time discovered the value of eating nuts for nutrition, energy and protein. (Despite not knowing what any of those terms would have meant. We have modern science to thank for that.) In fact, historians believe that nuts were an important part of the human diet at the time, perhaps because they were transportable, roastable and delicious. Flash forward a few million years and nuts are everywhere. In practically every country, society and civilization, traditions around the eating of nuts have taken solid root. As part of this tradition, we‟ve blended Eternally Nuts to celebrate Mother Nature’s hard shell. A nutty blend of almond and hazelnut notes rounded out with dried fruit and hibiscus, this is a tea anyone can love -Homo Sapiens, Homo Erectus, Cro Magnon, you name it. Go nuts!
In case we need to be clear - beware, nut allergen!
Hot tea brewing method:
Place 1.5 to 2 teaspoons of Angel Falls per cup (and add 1 teaspoon for the pot) into the teapot. Pour boiling water into pot and let it steep for 3-7 minutes (or longer - the longer the steeping time to more intense the flavor becomes). Pour into your cup and add sugar to taste. **do not add milk - the milk will curdle due to the ingredients in this blend.
Iced tea-brewing method: Do Not Pour Hot Liquid directly into a Glass Pitcher
(to make 1 liter/quart): Place 12-15 teaspoons of Angel Falls into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water].
