‘Cooper’s Curry’ is a tea that was a ridiculously long time from basic concept to actual blend.
Ages back, we’d created our ‘Bad Wolf’ to add to our array of Whovian teas. The only problem was that it put our Whovian blacks at one more than our Whovian greens.
We wanted to keep our gift sets even, so we knew that we had to make another Whovian green.
Greens are still a learning process for me. They have been part of my life for less long than blacks, so I was fairly tentative with them initially.
Finally, during our umpteenth conversation regarding tea and our need for a Whovian green, we realized that Captain Jack was a character we wanted to salute. The idea of a sweet curry tea came from brainstorming ideas for him.
After much experimentation, as we added a couple new ingredients to our toolbox while making this tea, we settled on the blend.
We tested it. It was lovely.
And, to our sadness, it wasn’t a tea that suited Harkness. Not… brazen? enough.
However, the particular taste balance of the blend did suit itself rather well a woman who worked with Jack in Torchwood…. and liked her curries.
So, we present ‘Cooper’s Curry’ – a salute to Gwen, and an indication of my apparent desire to make All the Tea Flavours.
Now for the basics:
Organic Ingredients: Dried Pineapple, Coconut Flakes, Fair Trade High Mountain Green Tea, Cashews, *Turmeric Root, Chile Flakes, Roasted Cumin
Batch Size: 4.3 ounces, approximately 30-35 cups of tea

*Our Turmeric is organic when we can find it. However, as it is difficult to source organic, sometimes we have to resort to conventional.
