The Tardis Blues. This loose leaf tea is a combination of oolong and black teas with colorful additions of cornflowers and safflowers. A touch of rosehips and a hint of hibiscus add a third dimension of flavor to this lovely brew. Almond, passion fruit, and blueberry round out the flavors. The tea was placed in a Tardis shaped strainer and brewed at 212 degrees for 5 minutes.
The tea party in a box also contained some little nibbles to enjoy during the party. The Doctor's favorite Jammie Dodger, a popular English shortbread cookie with a flavored jam filling, was tucked in the box. Such a special treat to sample a traditional English biscuit. Yum! The Jammie Dodger is the round cookie shown in the photo below. An assortment of freshly baked scones were added to our tea party since our Whovian always comes home from school with a hungry appetite. The other little goodie tucked in the box were Jelly Babies, another favorite of the Doctor.
