with blueberry & apple empanada tea
🌷 🌿 🌷 🌿 🌷
This tea cocktail is inspired by a fresh blueberry pie and is made for sipping on as the spring season starts to bloom! Our Blueberry & Apple Empanada tea shines in the spotlight of this dry sangria recipe as flavors of tart blueberry, hibiscus and rose blend with sweet vanilla and apple notes. The tea blend is infused in Nuevo Nouveau, a red wine blend from our favorite wine producer, Noisy Water Winery and sweetened up with our mellow Sunflower Honey. Topped off with a dash of warming Vietnamese Cinnamon and made in our Flash Iced Tea Maker, this sangria is sure to satisfy.
Blueberry & Apple Empanada is 1 of 6 tea blends that was included in our 2022 Spring Tea Club Box! Check out more deets about the club. ⬇
