Teahive Cheese portrait by Mike Geno

The Beehive Cheese Co. sent me a sample of this tasty cheddar. I had painted their "Barely Buzzed" cheese that has lavender and espresso powder mashed into the rind. Naturally then, they've produced this new "Teahive" which has tea leaves! hear's their description:
"As Beehive's newest addition to the family, Teahive is a "feel good" cheese. Rubbed with a blend of black tea and pure bergamot oil, leave it to the Beehive boys to create another unique, delicious cheese! The soothing qualities of tea and the relaxing properties of bergamot combine to produce a creamy cheese with rich fragrances of orange blossoms in April. Enjoy TeaHive with Beehive RUSKS, savory scones, biscuits, or marmalade. Pair with fruit-forward or floral wines, pilsners or even a chocolaty stout. "
