Can’t remember if I have reviewed this yet… oh well, I will now!
I bought 50g of this via the website in an order earlier this fall, then proceeded to forget about it in my excitement to try the fall collection. It waited, patiently, for me to give it my attention… and today I finally brewed up a cup and focused on the flavour. But I gotta say, I was disappointed! With all the hype this tea gets, I thought I would have fallen in love immediately.
Not to be swayed I brewed this again, but this time I made it following last years December DAVIDsTEA newsletter recipe for spiced butter—cream together 1/2 cup butter, 2 cups brown sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp grated nutmeg, and a pinch each of ground cloves and salt, then store in the fridge to use ANYTIME—and made it like a latte.
Now. There. Is. No. Turning. back. I’m addicted. I can’t stand this tea straight-up, but with the addition of milk & spiced butter it’s a whole other tea…
