This one is growing on me. Or maybe not so much growing as me getting more accustomed to the flavour. I take it with a good amount of milk and that helps the heavy scratchy flavour a lot.

I still don’t really think I would like pumpkin pie if introduced to it though and I’ll leave the rating where it is.

Don’t write off pumpkin pie until you’ve had a big slab with a glop of marshmallow cream on top. Come see me next Thanksgiving and we’ll take care of that :o)

Bit of a travel just for a piece of cake. :p

gmathis

Hmm…that set me off considering what little pies and pastries I would travel intercontinentally for…

Angrboda

:D Dessert can make us do the weirdest things.

I recall the first time I had pumpkin pie I didn’t really like it much. I’ve stayed away from pumpkin since. What bad experiences can do to you =(

Angrboda

Gosh, that would be awful. Braving the terrors of travelling, and intercontinentally to boot, and then arrive and find out I didn’t like the pie. I think I’d cry.

I find people from cultures that don’t have pumpkin pie often have the misfortune of having a bad one and thinking they all suck after that. (LOL) The crust should be buttery and flaky, the texture should be somewhere between custard and cheesecake with a creamy smoothness, and it should have enough cinnamon in it to be a rust or brownish shade. It should never actually be orange. And of course, topped in real sweet whipped cream.

Ricky

^ Basically. One bad experience just ruins it. I mean if you’ve never had err lemon meringue pie (don’t ask, it was the first dessert that came to my head) and you ordered it at a restaurant. Say for argument sake that it tasted horrible. Would you reorder this pie at a different restaurant, when you might not enjoy it as much as say umm a slice of apple pie?

Unpleasant desserts are few and far between as far as I’m concerned. ;)

Meg

Oh, you’d be amazed. I had a holiday dinner at a friend’s place once and didn’t know his new significant other had no idea how to make a decent pumpkin pie. I actually had to force myself to not spit it inot the napkin, it was barely seasoned and not fully cooked. urgh.

Bio

Ang lives with Husband and two kitties, Charm and Luna, in a house not too far from Århus. Apart from drinking tea, she enjoys baking, especially biscuits, reading and jigsaw puzzles. She has recently acquired an interest in cross-stitch and started a rather large project. It remains to be seen whether she has actually bitten off more than she can chew…

Ang prefers black teas and the darker sorts of oolongs. She has to be in the mood for green and white, and she enjoys, but knows little to nothing about, pu-erh.

Her preferences with black teas are the Chinese ones, particularly from Fujian, but also Keemun and just about anything smoky. She occasionally enjoys Yunnans but they’re not favourites. She has taken some time to research Ceylon teas, complete with reference map, and has recently developed some interest in teas from Africa.

She is sceptical about Indian blacks as she generally finds them too astringent and too easy to get wrong. She doesn’t really care for Darjeelings at all. Very high-grown teas are often not favoured.

She likes flavoured teas as well, particularly fruit flavoured ones, but also had an obsession with finding the Perfect Vanilla Flavoured Black and can happily report that this reclusive beast has been spotted in a local teashop near where she works. Any and all vanilla flavoured teas are still highly attractive to her, though. Also nuts and caramel or toffee. Not so much chocolate. It’s a texture thing.

However, she thinks Earl Grey is generally kind of boring. Cinnamon and ginger are also not really a hit, and she’s not very fond of chais. Evil hibiscus is evil. Even in small amounts, and yes, Ang can usually detect hibiscus, mostly by way of the metallic flavour of blood it has.

Ang is not super impressed with rooibos or honeybush on their own. She doesn’t care for either, really, but when they are flavoured, they go usually go down a treat.

Ang used to have a Standard Panel of teas that she tried to always have on hand. She put a lot of thought into defining it and decided what should go on it. It was a great idea on paper, but in practise has been discovered to not really work as well.

Ang tries her best to make a post on Steepster several times a week. She tends to write her posts in advance in a word doc (The Queue) and posting from there. This, she feels, helps her to maintain regularity and stops her from making five posts in three days and then going three weeks without posting anything at all.

Angrboda is almost always open to swapping. Just ask her. Due to the nature of the queue, however, and the fact that it’s some 24 pages long at the moment, it may take a good while from she receives your parcel and until she actually posts about it.
