Raspberry Champagne tea is a luxury for our mouths as well as the bath. Enjoy this recipe to make a relaxing tea bag for your bath. This also makes a great gift idea!
1 2 oz package of Raspberry Champagne
1/2 cup of oatmeal
1/4 epsom salt
3-5 drops of Vitamin E oil (The higher the IU’s the better, I try to get 45,000 IU)
Muslin or Organza fabric. (you can also purchase large resealable cloth bags, like organza favor bags)
twine or ribbon
Directions to make the bags:
To start, cut a strip of fabric 20" wide by any length - the length just determines how many bags you can make at a time. Fold over 1 - 1.5" along the long side of the fabric and sew. Repeat along the other long side, so now you have a strip of fabric ~17" wide with a long pocket on each side. Fold the fabric in half the long way so that the pockets are next to each other Make sure that the unfinished edges of the fabric where you sewed the long pockets are on the outside. Sew along one from the bottom of the pocket to the bottom of the fabric. Then move 6" down the fabric and do it again. This is one bag. Move 1/2" down the fabric and sew again and then move 6" and sew again. Repeat to the end of your fabric. Then cut the bags apart by cutting between your seams. Turn the bag right-side out. Add the drawstring by cutting 2 18" lengths of ribbon or twine. To make it easier to thread the string through the pocket, tie a paper clip loosely to one end of the twine. Starting on one side, thread the twine through the the pocket to the other side of the bag and then through the other pocket back to where you started. Leave 1-2" of space and then tie an overhand knot and trim off any excess twine. Do the same thing starting from the opposite side so that you finish with a knot on each side of the bag.
Now to make the tea for the bath!
Mix all the ingredients in a big bowl. Start with the tea, oatmeal, epson salt and then add the oil. Mix thoroughly. Then fill up your bags. Cinch the bags close and tie the ends together.
Raspberry Champagne Tea Butter. This recipe is a must for those early morning tea and scones day. Making a tea infused butter can be spread on bagels or bread for a wholly unique taste experience. This butter is also great in recipes that you want to add tea flavor too.
1 lb unsalted butter
1 cup Green Rich Tea’s Raspberry Champagne Tea leaves
In a small saucepan, melt the butter until just liquid.
Add Green Rich Tea’s Raspberry Champagne tea leaves.
Continue heating the mixture for about 5 minutes on low heat.
Remove from the heat and allow to stand for another 5 minutes or until the butter is discernibly tinted by the tea leaves.
Pour the mixture through a fine sieve, pressing hard on the tea leaves and then discarding them. This is the part where you will end up with some butter that you can't get off of the leaves. Press as hard as you can, but know some butter will stick to the leaves.
Let the butter come to room temperature and then use it as you would regular butter in your baked goods, on breads, on scones.
We recommend brewing your bag in about a gallon of boiling water for 3-5 min and then adding the tea, teabag into your warm bath. Get in and enjoy! Get 10% off online or in store using code: TOWraspch
