- August Uncommon
Inspired by the French tarte tatin, apple tart flambéed with Calvados, this tea has deep flavors of burnt sugar, caramelized apples, and a flash of brandy. Imagine a slice of warm apple tart on a rainy autumn day. The nutty flavor of formosa roasted oolong has an aroma like petrichor, the lovely scent after a fresh rain. The aromatic base lets the baked apple flavor shine. In the finish, there’s a subtle tartness of baked apple peel. Delicious both hot and iced, a touch of milk creates an even richer caramel flavor.
Created in collaboration with the Los Angeles restaurant Bestia, the name Avalon refers to the mythical Celtic island of apples. For August Uncommon, Bestia conjures Bestiaries, the medieval compendium of mythical creatures, so Avalon seemed a perfect name.
