A warm, nutty brew with a hint of creamy sweetness. A bright Ceylon base tea, smooth honeybush, and lingering toasted nut notes combine into a lovely treat. Try with brown sugar, or the sweetener or creamer of your choice.
Fun fact: the hazelnut, or filbert, is the state nut of Oregon, and is a rather hardy tree as the hazelnut plant flowers and pollinates mid-winter, producing the nuts in June.
During the Revolutionary War, General George Washington sent guards to protect the first commercial nursery in the Colonies that contained and help propagate the filbert tree in North America.
