Went to DAVIDs today to pick up some tea for some of you lovely Steepsters for gifts/swaps, and the gal behind the counter offered me a free cuppa tea when I was done. Well, thank you, I think I will!
She steeped it at a lower temperature than normal she said, so that the “caffeine stayed in the leaves more”. Wow. Really? I need to learn more about my teas I think, if this is the case with whites and greens.
Zero sugar or cream/milk, yet this was a buttery, lovely cup. The staffer suggested I grab some later to use while making rice (steep the water in the tea, then make rice with it for a Thai meal) and… oh my goodness YES I want to do this. I love Thai food. I make it as often as I have the ingredients on hand, although doing so now makes it tricky since I wrote off all grains. Lucky me though, my SPUD box comes tomorrow, and in it will be a boatload of spaghetti squash for exactly this reason.
Anyway. It’s a lovely Thai-inspired tea with notes of lemongrass, coconut and cream. Very light on the tea, very buttery and creamy, and quite the treat while on my shopping spree today.
