Lots, of cloves, a little apple, minimal figs, and a dash of vanilla makes for a strange kind of spicy sugar water, not thick enough to be a cake. It isn’t amazing but I’ll finish it off easily enough. I might even grab a hot cup to go, if the fancy strikes me and I’m passing by.

I really want cider now.

Unlike Banana Nut Bread, it’s almost too sweet to be eaten like a trail mix (the clove note is not prominent when dry). The Figs and dates are delicious though.

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.
