This weekend marks the launch of Informal's 2 new flavors of tea at the Little Big Markets. We're releasing the most premium of premium black teas into the world alongside a crisp mint blend featuring Spearmint, Peppermint, Rosemary and Lavender. It's gonna be good.
While we're on the topic of flavors, we thought we'd brew up an update to our original post a month or 2 ago about our locally inspired flavor ideas from the Informal orchard.
Not only are the Blueberries looking a tad bluer, but the Pomegranate tree has burst out into color. Pomegranates are completely off the hook — Tim used to live off these things when we was in India last year and they are possibly one of the craziest fruiting things we've seen. Check out the process:
It's impossible to do the colour true justice on a screen. But they start off as these bright red buds, almost as bright as the brightest thing ever. They slowly split open…
Until they quite literally explode into a flame-like flower.
Which drops off just as quick as it came.
It closes back up and transforms into a bulbous pomegranate.
Nature is mental. Anyways. The apples are out in abundance, looking pretty crisp and juicy I must say.
There's so much abundance that they're almost hanging-out on the ground. Lazy Apple tree.
These sneaky Blackberries would make a pretty luscious tea but we ate them all.
As would the Guavas, that cant be far away from turning red.
Maybe we should throw a few lovely rose petals into a tea for the ladies?
And how fresh are the leaves looking on Informal Tea's #1 tea tree?!...
This tree is going to make some fine tea one of these days!
Remember to come down to the Little Big Markets this coming Sunday (4th of March), 9am till 1pm for a taste and the chance to get your hands on our new teas. Everyone whos anyone will be there.
