    For many of us, when we hear the word "heirloom", we think of treasured pieces of antique furniture, well-worn gold watches or hand-me-down diamond rings. For others, tea lovers in particular, "heirloom" naturally forms part of the term "heirloom recipe", and takes on a much more gastronomical meaning. So, why are we talking about heirloom recipes? Good question. The answer is that this blend, Frosty Plum Spice, was created by our Master Blender in homage to an old family recipe passed down by his Dutch ancestors. Legend has it that his grandmother, or Oma, having grown up on an orchard back in the old country, developed a recipe for spiced plum tarts as a way to use up fruit leftover from market day in the nearby village.

    So how does the old recipe hold up as a tea? There's only one way to find out, which is to taste it, which we've done extensively. Our verdict? Lekker! (That's "delicious" in Dutch.) The blend offers lengthy notes of fruit, tempered by natural cinnamon and ginger to brew a cup that can be enjoyed hot on cold winter's days, or chilled over ice on a hot summer's morning. Either way, brew a pot today and raise a cup to the days and recipes of yore. Proost!

    How to Make Tea

    Caffeine content:Medium.

    Antioxidant Content: High. The longer you steep your tea the more polyphenols will be extracted. (Test results based on 5 minutes steeping time. Polyphenol percentages may fluctuate with lot, grade of tea, testing method, temperature of water and freshness of tea). More antioxidants are extracted from tea (L. Camellia Sinesis) the longer it is brewed. And the more tea is used, the greater the antioxidant benefit.

    Ingredients: Black tea, Apple pieces, Cinnamon, Ginger, Cloves, Amaranth + Safflower petals, Natural flavors (organic compliant).
