April showers bring rainy afternoons with cozy cups of tea and a cheeky chocolate biscuit or two.
Back when I first decided to make Flavors of the Month, I came up with most of them fairly easily, but I was stumped when it came to April. I knew I couldn’t make it Easter themed but obviously Easter isn’t always in April. Then I thought of somehow having it related to “April showers”… but what would that be? Rain flavor? Cloud scented? Hmm, maybe not. With a bit of lateral thinking, I based it on my favorite rainy day activity: sitting curled up with a big mug of tea and some cookies.
I’m obsessed with tea. My kitchen counter is awash with jars filled with a million varieties of flavored tea, from fruity to floral to spicy. But probably my favorite out of all of them is the ever-present Earl Grey, flavored with citrusy bergamot. Paired with a nice choccy bikkie or two, and you’ve got a perfect rainy day snack. After I made it, I realized I couldn’t make this little beauty available only one month of the year.
Tea & Biscuits Lip Balm is a blend of bergamot-scented Earl Grey tea and chocolate biscuits. It also has this great chocolate-orange vibe that I absolutely love. It’s creamy and sweet for the perfect cozy scent for cold rainy days, and fresh and fruity to be perfect for sunny spring days.
So what ended up becoming April’s Flavor of the Month? Cherry Blossom Lip Balm, of course! And it’s only available through tomorrow, so don’t wait to order! Next week, we’ll take a look at May’s Flavor of the Month, going from one delicious hot beverage to another.
