    Baking Bad's Note:

    I love discovering new flavors of tea. Through traveling both domestically and internationally, I have had to the opportunity to try some of the most exotic and interesting teas. Now lets be honest, the Midwest is not exotic, but we do have some of the most amazing places for food and drink. Not far from our house there is the most amazing tea store called Teavana. I was so overwhelmed the first time I entered the store. For as far as the eye could see there were rows and rows of tea, separated not only by type but also by flavor. I was immediately greeted by someone offering to let me smell any and l of the teas I wanted. Wow, I could not believe all of the options being presented in front of me. I decided on 6 different flavors, a couple within each type of tea. I absolutely love green tea so I could not wait to try the Blackberry Mojito Green Tea I purchased. When I opened my tin, I was immediately hit by the aroma of blackberry and mint, and I knew I would love it. I continued drinking the tea at lunch and dinner for for several weeks, and I still drink it regularly. I knew I wanted to try this flavor combination in other applications such as granola or jam. I worked on the jam for a couple weeks and finally came up with the perfect concoction. It is so delicious on a bagel with a layer of cream cheese topped with the jam. It is my version of a faux danish. Trust me, try this once and you will be making double batches.

      I'm so proud of myself; I've never made a jam before, and this turned out great! I followed the directions, EXCEPT, I added about 1/2 tsp. of rum flavoring. It IS blackberry mojito jam, and you can't make a mojito without some rum! ;-) I don't think that the flavoring made a difference, but I did want to try it. I was rewarded with 2 12 oz. jelly jars, and a neighbor told me I can freeze it, so I'll put 1 jar's worth in the freezer. I really don't wanna share it...LOL Thanks so much for sharing a great recipe, Baking Bad.

      This was a really good jam. The mint is a nice twist. I also added a little rum just to make things interesting. Served on English muffins. I'll bet this would be awesome with fresh-baked scones as well. Thanks, Baking Bad. [ Made for the Best of 2012 tag game]

      Wonderful! I made blackberry first and was so impressed I made some strawberry too. I also put it in canning jars to keep for later. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2012.
