12 Days of Recipes: No. 11 – Honeybush Tea Jelly

Honeybush is kinda our JAM. Just kidding, (not really) but it really has become one of our favorite jelly additions. Honeybush tea has flavors from South Africa which are light, and woody  with a taste of honey.  The naturally lightly sweetened caffeine free tea is perfect for a fruity and delicious jelly. Which is exactly what our Honey Buttered Biscuits from earlier in our 12 days of Christmas needs to be paired with. Which is why I want to share with you the perfectly light and sweet topping to a flaky biscuit. Made with Teasia Honeybush Tea K-Cups to create the highest quality taste, this jelly is sure to delight all the little (and big) elves running around your house.

Genmaicha Green Tea international-genmaicha-green-tea-home

Genmaicha is a traditional Japanese green tea that is also known as “popcorn tea” due to the grains of rice that pop during the roasting process. The roasted rice lends to a rich and nutty aroma that blends perfectly with the fresh flavor of green tea.

Earl Grey Tea

international-earl-grey-tea-home

Earl Grey Tea is a timeless classic that first became popular in England. Black tea is flavored with oil of bergamot, adding a sweet and light citrus aroma. The pleasant and fresh finish after each sip makes Earl Grey a perfect afternoon tea.

English Breakfast Tea

international-english-breakfast-tea-home

English Breakfast Tea is one of the world’s most popular black tea blends recognized by its robust and full-bodied flavor originating from Assam, Ceylon, and Kenya. We added a twist to this classic by adding Taiwan Black Tea leaves to the traditional blend. Enjoy with a splash of milk for a creamier texture.

Honeybush Tea (Caffeine-Free)

international-honeybush-tea-home

Honeybush Tea is cultivated during the flowering period of the honeybush plant, which is only grown in small areas of South Africa. This naturally caffeine-free tea has a distinctive honey taste and is commonly enjoyed with milk and sugar or on ice!

Oolong Tea is smooth and warm with a hint of sweet fruits. The subtle complexity makes it perfect for an everyday tea. Many consider oolong tea to offer the most complete tea drinking experience as it brings the light, fresh flavors of green tea and the complex flavors of black tea into a perfect balance. Teasia Oolong Tea is smooth and warm with a hint of sweet fruits. The subtle complexity makes it perfect for an everyday tea.

Try adding a splash of milk and drizzle some honey for a sweeter tea served on ice, or drink the tea by itself and enjoy its natural delicious flavors.

Roasted Oolong Tea has a natural roasted, earthy flavor.  To all those coffee lovers out there, this brew is the right one for you. The long-lasting fragrance will captivate your senses. In comparison to un-roasted oolong tea, which is lighter and brews a light yellow/green color, roasted oolong produces a darker, richer brew.

Enjoy this cup of tea with your breakfast and get started on the right foot.
