There’s nothing like a day at the races! The thrill of placing a flutter on a horse, the parade of lavish hats, and mingling with royalty! Inspired by a trip to Ascot, I wanted to create an elegant tea brimming with lush aromas and delicate fruit flavors—something that evoked a lush English summer. Because I love bright, lively summer's fruit flavors, I chose to infuse a decaffeinated Ceylon tea with apricot and passionfruit and sprinkled in the goodness of a citrus-infused green tea. The combination is a winner, indeed! Naturally low in caffeine, Ascot is lovely sipped from a dainty cup, or served over ice with a splash of Pimm’s or better yet Limoncello!

Brewing Guide

Pre-heat your tea vessel. Measure a scant 1⁄2 tsp. of tea into a filter.
Pour 6 oz. of freshly boiled water over tea and brew lightly for 2-3 minutes.
Strain, pour and enjoy! Be sure to compost spent tea leaves. {Given measurements are per serving.}

Serving Suggestions

If you prefer a sweet touch, this tea is best sweetened hot with Tupelo honey, or a sprinkling of apricot-infused Stevia to enhance the fruit tones.  Serve it hot with a few drops of milk, or as a refreshing iced tea over ice garnished with a fresh lemon slice. Try is as a “This-style” iced tea and sweeten then serve over ice adding half and half. Or for true British summer treat try making a Pimm’s cup!

Prepare Ascot, measuring tea 4 TBS tea into filter, steep 5 mins. in 1 liter just boiled water, adding 1/3 cup sugar to the bottom. Strain, stir and chill.

Food Pairing

Ascot makes an elegant escape any time, but it’s especially delightful sipped in the garden with afternoon tea. For an English-inspired picnic, pack a hamper with a blanket, pretty cups, a flask of hot tea, and scrumptious treats like traditional finger sandwiches, fresh strawberries, and cream scones served with tart lemon curd or a lemon infused Dundee cake to marry with the citrus flavors of the tea. Lovely!
