Bubbie’s Baklava | 24 Days of Tea: Day 10

Bubbies Baklava - 24 Days of Tea Day 10Just about every grandma has a secret recipe for special occasions. For David’s Bubbie, it’s baklava – studded with walnuts, almonds and pistachios and scented with honey and rose. And no family get-together is complete without it. This honey-scented oolong is an homage to that deliciously nutty treat. With candied fruit, nuts and spices, it’s rich enough to make any occasion feel special.

featured ingredients
walnuts & pistachios
steeped at
1.25 tsp @ 85°C for 4 minutes



This highly aromatic tea features a great spice character with strong hints of walnuts and pistachio. A touch of rum and mulled apples is complimented by light, sweet, creamy notes and there are also hints of honey and floral.


Less intense in flavour than aroma, this is another tea I would stick to the higher end of the steeping instructions for. It made a very nice eggnog latte in store so I assume it does get a fair bit stronger if left longer. Despite the weaker-than-expected flavour, it is pretty nice with definite walnut and pistachio notes and a great spice profile strong on cinnamon. A touch of honey and creamy sweetness bring out flavours of mulled apples and rum.
