drank Gingerbread by DAVIDsTEA
1576 tasting notes

A sipdown I can’t even note in my Steepster cupboard, because for some reason the tea wasn’t in it!

Oh well.

Today it’s molasses cake. Not really gingery, but there are some spices in the background. I helped the molasses flavour along by adding 1/2 tsp brown sugar. Mmm.

I’d consider getting more of this, but I’d have to add a bunch of chopped up candied ginger for it to actually be *ginger*bread. :)

(Also: I “only” have 10 more rows of a cowl I started 4 or 5 years ago left to do. Yay? I want to finish now, but each row takes so long…)

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more

Woot! Getting a wip that’s been sitting there for years is such a good feeling. And it’s the perfect time of year to use it. :)

Veronica, the only problem is I don’t have enough yarn for the 3.5 repeats of the pattern! Tiny cowl!

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
