spinosaurus aegyptiacus

Tastemaker silver badge
created by: Emily Hall
A sweet, fruity and crisp blend will have you striding through public like the predator everyone else respects and fears, with a spring to your step. Dates, apples and pomegranates are reminiscent of the Egyptian landscape where Spinosaurus was first discovered, and the use of hibiscus highlights the traditions of Egypt's tea culture. EDIT: Originally, I had a peppermint flavor that was inspired by an Egyptian tea tradition, but I think that the apple flavor will work better within the context of the blend.

Spinosaurus was first found in 1912 in Egypt, and is regarded as possibly the largest of all carnivorous dinosaurs. In ancient Egypt, the pomegranate was seen as a symbol of prosperity and ambition, and was used prior to 1500 BC as a medicine. Egypt is one of the world's largest tea importers and it is their most popular drink; traditionally, black tea is steeped for so long that its bitterness must be counteracted with copious amounts of cane sugar, resulting in an extremely strong and sweet beverage. Hibiscus tea is also a popular beverage in Egypt, and mint leaves are often used as a garnish.

This tea is a spirited embodiment of these qualities. Our Spring Darjeeling is a highly aromatic first-flush (spring) clonal tea from the beautiful Glenburn Estate.
