Mister Tea and I have been mildly embarrassed for quite some time regarding our lack of anything attached to Star Wars.
I’m not entirely certain why it took us over two years to get around to blending one, though the fact that creating new teas counts as ‘playing’ and isn’t something I let myself do as much as I really want to is a factor.
A tea inspired by a conversation thread on Twitter led us to the creation and naming of our first Dark Side tea. It is still waiting in the wings as I refused to do anything further with it until we had a Light Side tea. There must be balance, of course.
From out of the bubbling pot of merriment, inspiration, and geekery that is the group of friends who help us with our tea names came the idea that a tea for Leia should be made, and it should involve cinnamon. (Due to a certain iconic arrangement of hair.)
Thinking on the taste of cinnamon, and how it combines with black tea, I found I concurred. I also remembered that I’d be meaning to make a strict cinnamon black tea since… Well, since we discovered that making tasty teas was something we could do.
This is a lovely tea, and has become one of the morning standards for us.
Now for the basics:
Organic Ingredients: Fair Trade Black Tea, Cinnamon
Batch Size: 4.2 ounces, approximately 35-40 cups of tea
Options: Loose Tea (Sample, Bag, Tin, *LatchTin), Teabags
(*The LatchTin holds two batches of tea, and is a separate listing on Etsy.)
