I love discovering new flavors of tea. Through traveling both domestically and internationally, I have had to the opportunity to try some of the most exotic and interesting teas. Now lets be honest, the Midwest is not exotic, but we do have some of the most amazing places for food and drink. Not far from our house there is the most amazing tea store called Teavana. I was so overwhelmed the first time I entered the store. For as far as the eye could see there were rows and rows of tea, separated not only by type but also by flavor. I was immediately greeted by someone offering to let me smell any and l of the teas I wanted. Wow, I could not believe all of the options being presented in front of me. I decided on 6 different flavors, a couple within each type of tea. I absolutely love green tea so I could not wait to try the Blackberry Mojito Green Tea I purchased. When I opened my tin, I was immediately hit by the aroma of blackberry and mint, and I knew I would love it. I continued drinking the tea at lunch and dinner for for several weeks, and I still drink it regularly. I knew I wanted to try this flavor combination in other applications such as granola or jam. I worked on the jam for a couple weeks and finally came up with the perfect concoction. It is so delicious on a bagel with a layer of cream cheese topped with the jam. It is my version of a faux danish. Trust me, try this once and you will be making double batches.
