Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
Earl Grey is my new favorite tea for making kombucha. While the tea is just a black tea blend the addition of bergamot orange oil makes this kombucha especially lovely.
Dark tea, aromatic bergamot - what is there not to love about Earl Grey? It also makes a delightful booze! You can make your own Earl Grey Cordial - it is easy, and makes a wonderful gift to give a tea aficionado!
This is a jam that fascinates. Tangy citrus, sweet apples and the tannins of good tea all wrapped up in floral aromas. There is a bonus recipe for Satsuma Marmalade.
