As I think I’ve mentioned a few other places, tea ideas for me come from the most random places sometimes.
In the general chaos of creating our TMNT Turtle teas, there was a bloke on Twitter who was very helpful. He gave us a lot of input, kicked around ideas – both for names and for the teas. (In fact, it is his fault that our tea for Raphael has vanilla. Which is something you should thank him for.)
After I’d solidified the Donatello tea, made the labels, and was working on fixing it all up so photos could be taken, he mentioned thinking that fennel should be involved.
‘Donatello’s Zen‘ was already done and done at that point, but it did drop the idea of using fennel into my head.
With dramatic effect.
Before that thread of conversation was even complete, I had decided I had to make a tea called ‘Rhapsody in Green’ – as a salute to this individual, and it needed to contain fennel.
After some discussion regarding taste preferences, I decided to use Genmaicha Green as the foundation for this tea, and add some ginger for proper flair.
