Handmade Tea: March 2014 - Oatmeal Raisin

Oatmeal Raisin - March blend
Handmade tea  is a monthly tea subscription that delivers unique tea blends monthly. Each month has a different base tea.
There are two subscription options, "the mini monthly" ($12.95/month) or the "full monthly" ($19.95/month). Both options include shipping. The full monthly has more tea and also comes with small tins that have the different blend ingredients, which you can use for cooking or to increase the intensity of some flavors in the tea.

(The ones pictured in this post and for the February blend are the "mini" shipment).

The March blend, Oatmeal Raisin, is officially described as follows: Oatmeal-Raisin begins with a fragrant black base tea from the Nuwara Eliya region of Sri Lanka. Mini raisins are added to give the blend a 'darker' sweetness (think molasses) in the same way a fig or date would. Lastly, oatstraw is blended in for a soft and mellow earthy flavor that ties the tea and raisins together. Oatmeal-Raisin makes for a perfect breakfast tea.

I like the March blend quite a bit. The raisins and oatstraw add a nice depth of flavor to the tea and the blend does taste quite a bit like a cookie in tea form!
