Unlike other people who have tried this tea, I love dates. I eat a date just before nearly every workout. My special fancy party food includes dates stuffed with marzipan (which is a challenge to get stuffed and on the table for guests without having them disappear in the meanwhile.) So I expected to like this tea.

There is a slightly odd perfume-like fragrance from this tea. It doesn’t smell like dates. It doesn’t really taste like dates to me either. It has a strong bitterness with that odd perfume-like note. Hmmmm. I don’t really care for it.

Here’s another good party food. Take dates, stuff with a whole almond, then roll in a cookie spice blend of spices on the outside. Very nummy.

Mmmm! That sounds wonderful. It’s now on my list. All I need is a party.

did it remind you a little of raisins?

“Unlike other people who have tried this tea, I love dates.” …that would be me. I don’t know what I was thinking. I think it’s one of the things that I don’t like but would really like to like.

Carolyn

@Madison Somewhat like raisins in the aftertaste. It has some of that darkness that raisins have but none of the sweetness.

Carolyn

@Angrboda You are definitely one of the people I was thinking of. However Bethany had also never had dates without bacon (an idea that pretzels my mind). As to what you were thinking, I suspect it is merely that hope springs eternal.

Angrboda

Heh, yeah Bethany got half of mine. Jillian got the other half. I have to agree though that I wouldn’t have thought dates and bacon would have been a very obvious combination, but on the other hand I seem to recall having heard it mentioned before.

@Carolyn. Hmmm. Bacon date tea. Hmmmm. :)

Dates stuffed with almonds and then wrapped in bacon is a pretty popular tapas item. And it tastes delicious.

Madison Bartholemew

that’s exactly what I got when I had it without sugar! I was totally curious to see if you agreed. I know you wont…. but it’s MUCH better with sugar

Jillian

@Angrboda: I haven’t received the tea you sent yet, but Canada Post seems heavily backlogging with incomming mail only for some reason. It’s unfortunate since I am quite eager to try this tea out.

Angrboda

Jillian, Poot! I sent it the same time as Bethany’s and hers arrived safely. I hope it’s not lost because I sent it as a normal letter. Cheaper, but unfortuantely no tracking. I understand there was a lot of delay due to snowstorms and such, so hopefully it’s still out there somewhere and on its way.

I’m a suddenly enthusiastic tea aficionado. I had no idea how varied and delicious teas could be. Also I’m a dairy-free vegetarian, so if you see me say “cream” or “milk” it means soy milk or soy cream.
