Blue Eyes (Herbal Tea)
Frank Sinatra - old Blue Eyes himself was the inspiration for this fruit blend. The fruit blend has a mysterious character that tends to be sweet. The visual appearance is enticing because of the cornflower petals and the highly visual fruit prices. Blue Eyes is best enjoyed in the mid afternoon during a break from hectic activity or vigorous workout or after an evening meal - the flavor profile encourages a relaxing moment. This tea has a very exotic flavor profile. The delicious blend of caramel and fruit medley flavors combined with the natural flavors and tartness of the various dried fruits create a summertime cooler or a wintertime summer reminder. For a summer time drink Blue Eyes iced is hard to beat. It is refreshing and thirst quenching and not overly sweet. For formal times garnish the glass with a strawberry and a sprig of mint - for non-formal times pour it into your glass and enjoy it gulp after gulp! If you have small children use the Blue Eyes tea to make popsicles - they taste great and contain very little sugar.
Hot tea brewing method:
Place 1.5 to 2 teaspoons of Blue Eyes tea 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 Blue Eyes tea 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].
