A Blend of Flavour and Tradition

As Easter approaches, homes are filled with the aromas of hot cross buns, the sound of children hunting for colourful eggs, and the warmth of gathering with loved ones. Among the many traditions that define this holiday, there’s a quiet elegance found in the art of tea drinking that perfectly complements the spirit of Easter. Let’s explore the rich tapestry of Easter traditions and how they intertwine with the diverse flavours of tea, from the delicate Cherry Blossom to the comforting Spiced Chai.

Easter, a time of rebirth and renewal, is celebrated worldwide with various customs and rituals. For many, it holds religious significance, marking the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Others see it as a celebration of the arrival of spring, with its promise of new beginnings. Regardless of the interpretation, Easter brings people together, fostering a sense of community and joy.

One of the most beloved Easter traditions is the Easter egg hunt, where children eagerly scour gardens and parks in search of hidden treats. As they embark on their quest, adults often find solace in the tranquillity of sipping tea, reflecting on the joys of the season. Camellia’s White Jasmine and Apricot tea offers a serene companion to these moments, with its delicate blend of white and green tea leaves infused with fragrant jasmine flowers. Its floral notes and gentle aroma evoke feelings of serenity and renewal, perfectly capturing the essence of Easter.

Happiness tea radiating with citrusy lemon verbena, soothing roses, and the subtle tartness of rose hips, embodies the spirit of joy and rejuvenation. With each sip, let its vibrant flavours uplift senses and infuse Easter celebration with an aura of positivity.

Another Easter staple is the hot cross bun, a spiced sweet bun adorned with a symbolic cross. These delectable treats are often enjoyed with a cup of tea, creating a comforting combination of flavours. Spiced Chai, with its robust blend of black tea, warming spices, and creamy milk, is the perfect accompaniment to hot cross buns. The bold flavours of cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger in Spiced Chai complement the spice-infused buns, creating a harmonious union of taste and tradition.

As Easter is a time of indulgence, it’s important to cater to all dietary preferences. For those watching their calorie intake, Dark Chocolate tea offers a guilt-free alternative to satisfy  sweet cravings. This decadent blend combines the rich flavours of cocoa nibs and chocolate with the earthy tones of black tea, creating a luxurious drinking experience without the added calories. Paired with a selection of fresh fruits or nuts, Dark Chocolate tea adds a touch of indulgence to Easter festivities without compromising on health.

For those seeking a taste of springtime bliss, Cherry Blossom tea provides a delightful sensory experience. As cherry blossoms bloom in Japan, signalling the arrival of spring, this delicate tea captures the essence of the season. Infused with peony flowers, rose petals, dried cherries, and subtle hints of fruit, Cherry Blossom tea offers a refreshing burst of flavour that rejuvenates the senses. Its light and floral notes evoke images of blooming cherry trees, inviting drinkers to embrace the beauty of nature’s renewal.  Try this iced for a warmer spring day.

Incorporating tea into Easter traditions not only adds depth to the celebration but also provides an opportunity for reflection and connection. Whether it’s savouring the tranquillity of Camellia’s Jasmine tea, indulging in the comforting flavours of Spiced Chai and hot cross buns, or embracing the freshness of Cherry Blossom tea, each cup offers a moment of respite amidst the festivities. As we gather with loved ones to celebrate Easter, let us raise our teacups in toast to the joys of the season and the blessings of renewal.
