Orange Blossom-Vanilla Oolong Tea
Makes enough for one hundred 6 o 8 ounce cups
Oolong tea combines the deep flavors of black tea with the grassy tang of green tea. It blends very well with flower petals and herbs and is strong enough to be used twice in brewing.
*Add slivers of dried orange peel, if desired, to this aromatic mix.
• 8 ounces oolong tea leaves
• 4 tablespoons dried orange blossoms
• 1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise and scraped, pod and seeds dried overnight
In a 16-ounce glass jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the tea leaves with the orange blossoms and dried vanilla seeds and pod. Shake well to combine, and store for 1 week in a dry, dark place. Use boiling water to brew the tea, and let steep for 2 to 3 minutes.
