Embrace the warm embrace of tradition and hospitality with "Balkan Memories", a loose-leaf tea blend inspired by the rich cultures and landscapes of the Balkans. This tea is a harmonious symphony of the finest green tea leaves, handpicked to ensure the highest quality, delicately intertwined with the invigorating zest of ginger pieces.

Cardamom, a classic spice cherished in Balkan cuisine, adds a hint of exotic allure, while chillies and hot pepper flakes infuse a subtle yet thrilling heat that dances on the palate, invigorating the senses.

Each sip of "Balkan Memories" carries the whispers of Balkan tales, the laughter shared in cosy kitchens, and the soulful melodies of traditional songs. It is more than just a tea, it's a journey through time and across borders, right from the comfort of your teacup.

Brewing the perfect cup of "Balkan Memories" is a soothing ritual in itself. Begin by warming your water to a gentle 80°C. This optimal temperature will coax out the nuanced flavors without scorching the leaves. Use 4g of tea for a 250ml cup, or 12-15g per litre if you're brewing a larger batch. Steep the blend for 2-3 minutes, just long enough to allow the ingredients to unfurl and release their full array of flavours into the water.

As you lift the cup, let the fragrant steam waft over you, carrying the delicate aromas of green tea, ginger, and cardamom. Take a moment to appreciate the beautiful blend before you take your first sip. Savour the soothing warmth, the gentle heat of the chillies, the exotic whisper of cardamom. This is "Balkan Memories", your own personal invitation to a Balkan journey, to enjoy at your own pace, in your own space.

Let "Balkan Memories" be your daily retreat - a way to pause, breathe, and revel in the simple pleasures of life. Brew a cup, sit back, and let your memories and dreams wander freely through the captivating landscape of the Balkans.
