Luscious Honeybush Apricot paired with sultry Decaf Spice Ceylon, underpinned by toothsome Honeybush Chocolate to create a layered, deceptively complex blend. Serving suggestion: iced, sweetened, and enjoyed on a warm summer evening as you sit under a big peach tree just as the fireflies come out.

The story behind this blend: I was listening to the Carolina Chocolate Drops while playing with tea blends in my sweltering baltimore kitchen and thought it would be fun to make another tribute blend* This blend is my flavor interpretation of the sound of their passionate and haunting performance of Snowden's Jig at the Birchmere in January 2010. (You can listen and read a little of the story behind Snowden's Jig here: http://youtu.be/9FstEhh0iTQ You can get the Carolina Chocolate Drops' albums and show info on their site, www.CarolinaChocolateDrops.com) *Check out some of my other tribute blends (Neipalm! is one of my very favorites :) • NEIPALM! inspired by Neil Gaiman & Amanda Palmer http://tinyurl.com/18r • Aggregate Of Our Joy inspired by Kurt Vonnegut http://tinyurl.com/27zfjtz • As You Wish inspired by Princess Bride http://tinyurl.com/2d5vlx4 • Luna Lovegood's Libation inspired by Luna in the Harry Potter Series http://tinyurl.com/18r • Lebowski blend series inspired by The Big Lebowski http://www.adagio.com/big_lebowski
