(¸.·´ (¸.·`Pixxxie Pie's Absinthe Tea is like nothing you've ever tasted & I am proud to present it as the fourth of my "Genuine Pixxxie Pressed Teas & Tinctures" collection. This practically magical tea has been a guarded recipe in my book of tasty shadows for quite some time and after much deliberation I've finally decided to share it with the world.
Comprised of wholesome, fair trade, organic ingredients it is an exotic melding of richly cultivated flavors.
♥The headiest components here are luscious, high grade, organic Wormwood, Spearmint, Licorice and finely ground Lemon peel of identical caliber.
♥Next on our alchemical component scroll is a mixed allotment of organic Peony White Tea leaves, Kukicha Twigs, a light sprinkling of Lavender Buds and whole Star Anise Pods.
♥Rounding off all this goodness is the semi-precious wonderment that is Roasted Brown Rice. Like a velvet ribbon accent on a present that is already sinfully fantastic, it adds a certain richness that is distinct yet smooth. It's an exotic flavor, almost bordering on the roasted tastiness one finds with fresh Sesame Crackers.
All of these components meld together to create a cup of one of the most stunning green teas you've ever tasted. To say this is the stuff of which wild daydreams are made of would be putting it lightly. The taste is unmistakably Absinthe with lush herbal tones melding effortlessly with lavish spicy notes thanks to the inclusion of whole Star Anise Pods and dapper Licorice.
I must say, do consider avoiding moonlit walks after gulping this down, for it can make you easy prey for all manner of night's creatures.
(¸.·´ (¸.·`How Much You Receive:
Sold in one corked glass vial, you receive 1.5 oz of Geniune Pixxxie Pressed Tea. This makes about 3-4 cups of tea depending on the size of your tea cups.
I commonly use one of these old world vials in my personal tea pot and pull at least 6 cups from it since this is one of the rare loose teas that you can steep in hot water 2 times over and still get a delicious cup of tea that's not bitter from "over steeping".
♥Tea is sent in bottle with constituents layered in the lovely strata you see pictured. If you'd like the tea to come to you mixed please leave me a note in your Paypal buying notes or Etsy buying notes with the simple statement "Please Mix Tea Components".
♥Product will come to you in gift-style wrappings, packaged securely with love and care.
♥You will also find 2 re-usable drawstring muslin tea bags of cotton nestled alongside your corked apothecary jar of tea. Despite sending you the little bags I really suggest using a tea pot with an internal basket or a French Press if you have one.
♥Alternative Recipe for Grown Ups: Instead of filling your teapot solely with hot water, fill half of it with hot water and fill the other half with Plum Wine + 3 heaping teaspoons of sugar or raw sugar. Steep tea for whatever duration of time suits your fancy and drink up. Because it is a heady alchemical decoction, this alternate recipe not suitable for children (no matter how ill mannered or hyperactive you think them to be...No matter what Mary Poppins or her cohorts think). And while we're on the topic, you probably shouldn't listen to any nanny of the Mary Poppin's School of Child Rearing w/ Witchcraft anyway. They'll have your wee ones grow up to be very docile lifetime alcoholics for magical wine-brews! Believe it. Despite depictions of "Poppins Types" descending from rain clouds or some such, know now that they're practically Vampires and can only come into your home if you invite them! But that's another topic....
-♥-Product contains caffeine.
-♥-All ingredients here are certified organic and fair trade.
-♥-Roasted Brown Rice is "puffed" and some grains puff out and expand like wild, giving them the look of small popcorn kernels.
-♥-Ingredients are super fresh, so this will probably be one of the freshest cups of tea you will ever taste. Very different from tea purchased at the grocery store that may have been sitting on the shelf for a long time. Drink lightly to gauge you tolerance since this strong stuff.
-♥-Tea lasts longer if you store it in a cool dry place that is not exposed to direct sunlight. This tea has a rather long shelf life but it tastes best if you drink it within 60 days of receiving it.
-♥-You can also jazz this tea up a bit more by adding whipped cream or milk. Or serve it over ice for the days when you'd rather have your tea cold.
-♥-Steeping Time: 3-4 Minutes in boiling water. Sugar to taste. Tea brews up to a pale golden color under normal circumstances. The green hue shown in many of the product pictures is accomplished through the use of Pixxxie Pie's Green Sugar. This is simply sugar that has had a small dab of natural green food coloring added to it.
-♥-Makes 3-6 cups depending on how strong you brew your tea. Amount of Wormwood herb in this mix is safe and is very low. Less than half a teaspoon is used since herb of Wormwood leaves a bitter taste in tea if too much is used.
-♥-Product labels and such are produced in-house & are completely composed of recyclable parchment paper and the like. Peel off labels and keep tags to tuck away as keepsakes or bookmarks (they also attract fairy-folk)! Keep bottles for another use since its high quality and can easily be washed. Upcycling is your friend!
