Victorian Lavender and other Black Teas with Herbs, loose tea
I blend specialty teas for organizations and individuals, of which Victorian Lavender Tea is one example.
This special blend of black tea and lavender was my first custom blend, made in the 90s for the Wheaton History Center winter Victorian Tea.
At the Backyard Patch I make tea blends of Black Tea, Green Tea and Herb Only Tea. Each Black Tea blend is a special combination of high quality tea leaves and flavorful herbs. All are hand-crafted blends which infuse black teas with a wonderful combination of flavors only available with fresh dried herbs and spices.
Many of these blends were first crafted by request for Museums, Tea Shops and Women's Club events as a custom tea sold only at the event. They are available here as a special offering and proceeds from items sold are always forwarded to the organization responsible for the original blend. These teas are packaged as 1/2 cup in a zip seal bag.
We have always blended our teas for taste first, crafting blends that bring out the unique flavors of herbs. If you are interested in a custom blend for your organization, please do not hesitate to contact us. Use the conversation Link.
For this listing choose any ONE of following custom blends. Choose your tea from the drop down menu:
Victorian Lavender Tea - My first custom blend, made in the 90s for the Wheaton History Center winter Victorian Tea is a combination of Black Tea and lavender buds.
Garden Gait 2010 - a special blend of black tea and lavender, hibiscus, blackberry leaf and lemon verbena was crafted with the help of the Lisle, IL Women's Club and used as a fund raiser for their annual garden walk. The proceeds from every bag sold go to the Lisle Women's Club Scholarship Fund. In addition to black tea, the blend contains lavender, hibiscus, blackberry leaf and lemon verbena.
Angel Black Tea - This special tea blend contains black tea, rose hips, hibiscus, clary sage, and lemon verbena. Some of these herbs are associated with the bible, others with the Middle East region, or areas of the world explored by Christians. Prepared originally for the United Methodist Church of Glen Ellyn.
Christmas Tidings Tea - This blend of black tea with orange and lemon peel with cinnamon and other spices is based on a recipe from World War II that was created to substitute for coffee. Although it never caught on, the blend if very tasty and perfect for the winter season. It was made to complement a museum exhibit on World War II.
Shamrock Tea - This individual blend of Irish black tea, spearmint, blackberry leaf and rose hips was created especially for the Wheaton History Center, which hosted a yearly Victorian Tea.
Lemon Bergamot Black Tea - This Black tea flavored with bergamot oil, lemon herbs and bee balm leaves and flowers is a tasty organic version of Earl Grey tea.
My loose Tea is packaged in a 3" x 4" zip-seal pouch with enough tea for at least 12 to 15 cups or more of brewed tea. We recommend you transfer from the zip-seal to a jar or tin for long-term storage.
Like all blends from the Backyard Patch we guarantee an 18 to 24 month shelf-life, because we use only the freshest herbs. All Backyard Patch herbs are raised organically and are chemical and pesticide free.
Weights: Loose Teas are sold by 1/2 cup volume; the weights differ due to herb content, but vary between 1 and 2 ounces. (Enough for 12 to 15 cups of brewed tea or more.)
Teas can be purchased in 8 and 10 ounce packages by request. The price will be calculated at the time of order. If you want more than the 1/2 cup size, please contact us by conversation.
