It is the fall season and with our church opening a tea shop in our small town I think it will be appropriate to do some taste testings and let you in on all the goodness... O' these teas, YUM!! So we opened the online store yesterday www.royaltea.org
We do not have our doors open for business yet since we are still in the paperwork stages; and that takes longer than anticipated, so we will open with the online store right now.
So what is the mission of Royal Tea? It is so exciting I just want to shout it out... we love people and want to do a better job at showing it. Here is the actual mission: "We partner with you to change the world! Or at least someones world! Funds raised through Royal-Tea go to feeding starving children, giving them educations and clothes; Rescuing Women from sex trafficking and giving them jobs and educations; Supporting missionary work locally and globally; and serving as a resource to local events and initiatives.
The Staff Volunteers! The staff at Royal Tea shop are volunteers! They believe in tea with a mission and put their own labor behind it! You can feel good about your purchase knowing you’re having a positive impact!"
Tea Tasting Time!
Tonight as I write this I am drinking a big cup of "Pecan Pie." This Pecan Pie tea is a caffeine free tea so I can drink it for dessert in the evenings. I make my tea without adding sugar or honey just straight up Royal Tea leaves and hot water. I bought the 4 ounces of this tea and very happy with it. The aroma as it was steeping was flooding my mind with Thanksgiving! The smell was so delightful! So with the first sips of pecan pie tea I immediately tasted some caramel! The other flavor notes in this tea include nutty, buttery, and caramel. For every 6 ounces of water you will need two tsp. of tea and steep it for 5-7 minutes. The tea can be re-steeped a few times too! My daughter got the second steep, and now I have cold water in it for an overnight cold brewed steep for my morning! Waking up to tea that's already made is so exciting to me.
