Daniel Scott drank NeoCitran
…Yeah, okay, it’s not tea. But as it turns out, I don’t have a lot of cold-busting teas in my cupboard. A few with lemongrass and/or ginger. And I’m getting sick of them.
But I used this one to make my Cream of Wheat today. Previously I’ve used Oh Canada from DAVIDsTEA, which also makes a good bowl of Cream of Wheat (if not a good tea), and Chocolate Orange/Oh Christmas Treat (also from DAVIDsTEA), which had a great chocolate-orange taste on top and a nauseating pu-erh taste underneath. (Note to self: pu-erh does not make great Cream of Wheat.)
This one makes an excellent bowl of mush! Tea taste is nice and light enough to not make the food taste odd. Strawberries come through decently; I wish they were just a little stronger…I’ll need to experiment. But with brown sugar added, this tastes a lot like when I was a kid and my parents would give me and my sister fresh strawberries to dip in brown sugar for dessert.
Steep time/temperature is how I prepared the tea before pouring it into the Cream of Wheat, obviously.
