Sample sipdown from Dexter3657

I really should have bought more of this. I didn’t receive my Fusion tea order yet but I only ordered a 10 cup sample size. I had only tried it once before placing my order and was still not head over heels in love. I enjoyed it the first time around but apparently not enough to order more. Moronic move.

It’s perfect for an evening when you want to curl up with a warm cup of comfort. To some, that cup of comfort might be a chocolate tea, or a chai. Although I enjoy those also, there’s just nothing like hazelnut for me. I used to put hazelnut creamer in my morning coffee all the time. This tea, with hazelnut creamer is just to die for.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 7 min, 30 sec

Hazelnut is awesome. I occasionally make hazelnut (paleo) pancakes, & they rock!

Terri I know about those pancakes! I saw a note you wrote a couple of days ago where you mentioned making the pancakes. I thought it was awesome. I always love hearing about other people cooking, especially when they do it with love not just out of necessity.

I LOVE pancakes!
Usually I make them with Almond flour, but a 50/50 hazelnut almond mix is nice too. Today I did them with almond flour, adding cinnamon, nutmeg, orange peel…(I’m drooling now, just thinking about it…I just remembered there are a few leftovers!). All that was needed was Maple syrup, which I had!

Be careful, I can see myself on a plane to Missouri :) gawd, now I have to make pancakes tomorrow morning.

Pancakes rock!
If this Harp Playing thing ever stops working for me, I should open a bed & breakfast. I’d just have to turn part of my house into a guest room, then people could come from all over to eat my pancakes & other foods, & I could serve tea, provide tours of St. Louis, take people on float trips, all kinds of fun things.

Sil

Yes please! But I get dibs on your first reservation!

Terri HarpLady

Sil, I’ll start the kettle, come on down!

Sil

:) that would be awesome. Maybe if we do a bit of a road trip one of these days we can pop on by haha

Terri HarpLady

Whenever, I don’t plan on going anywhere :)

I do think we should plan a get together. A Steepster convention of sorts. Pick a place as equidistant from most as we can and do a weekend. Dude, it would be awesome. Not even a hotel or a place where we would sightsee. Just like a Lilith fair or Woodstock type of thing, or a womyn Michigan festival. I’d put money on this being a blast.

An annual tea festival. Sweet!

Bio

I started drinking loose leaf tea in the spring of 2013 (why do we feel compelled to mark the date of tea drinking somewhat like addicts counting their sobriety days?)

Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician and insurance adjuster, I gave up the corporate world and am now a professional chef. I drink wine and sometimes cheat on it with tea.

I lean heavily towards flavoured black teas. I’ve started to crave the occasional straight oolong and green but so far unflavoured black teas leave me unimpressed.

I’m learning so I drink them all. Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.

Note*: The virtual cupboard does NOT contain any of the samples I hold since most of them are one-cup quantity.

Note**: My partner, our home improvements, gadgets, mortgage, travel, wine and food have budget priority over tea.
