So I found myself in the mood for an AUTUMN TEA! I have NONE in my cupboard :( And I can’t afford to buy any for a while. So I chose this out of one of the MANY samples Janelle sent me. I was quite intrigued with the idea of a GREEN OOLONG and CHAI in one? It smelled decadent dry. The cardamom and cinnamon very apparent. Unfortunately steeped, it was quite light. I was afraid to add anything to this because the little flavor it did have would disappear. This definitely would have been a hit with a darker base oolong. I even over leafed to make sure the chai came through:( However this oolong I love. Very delicate and my tastebuds loved it. I usually love to add milk or cream to my chai to get that full flavor. I decided, HECK why not, after I was halfway finished with this I added some milk. As I suspected, all flavor disappeared. Thank you janelle for giving me this to sample.
On another note, since I was feeling in a super duper fall craving mood I made these for dessert tonight:)
However, the sprinkled ones turned into a fail:(
Also after work I stopped by a local cafe that we sell our pastries too and stumbled upon a scoop of heaven in a cup! Oatmeal chocolate chip ice cream! I love oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Eating this made me instantly want Della Terra’s Oatmeal Raisin cookie tea!
I also got a scoop of Pistachio Almond, making me also crave Butiki’s Pistachio Ice Cream Tea. HAHA can’t you tell I am having major withdrawals. Oh LAWRD!
Anyways, I will have to take another stab at this tea eventually.
