Full Red Moon - August
The moon sometimes takes on a reddish hue this time of year, thus the name. Depending on the geography of the tribes, the August moon is also known as a Corn moon or Sturgeon moon.
I have a delicious tea to celebrate, called Moonswirl White Tip. Tightly packed buds are coiled into full moon shapes. The flavour is very light & delicate.
Wondering what red, luscious thing I could pair the tea with.... maybe a fig, drizzled with honey... or caviar, that's sometimes red, and there is sturgeon caviar... So maybe I'll start with caviar on round rice crackers, boil some corn in saffron, follow it with the fig and honey and then finish with the tea. Sounds like a balanced meal to me!
