A.MA.ZING. Okay, I definitely must get some of this for myself. Thanks cavocorax, for once again being a horrible person ;P :P :P

Seriously, this is so good! So light and fresh and tasty and simple and YUM.

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 30 sec
Cavocorax

Yesssssss! This is the reason I packaged up the rest to send to you. I love this one so much. I resteep the hell out of it to get every last drop.

Ozli

NO KIDDING!! It’s a keeper for sure.

Lots of raspberries in this! It was good, too. I am going to resteep it later and see how that goes ;)

I didn’t really get the sponge cake part?

Cavocorax

I didn’t get too much cake from it either – more so when it cools I guess.

CrowKettle

I found the cake bit to be very subtle and light tasting. It crept in and out for me.

drank Cinnamon-Orange Tea by Market Spice

At first I thought this was like the cinnamon challenge (you know, eat a tablespoon of cinnamon straight, go on, I dare you) and could not be done but.. it grows on you? I think that people who love cinnamon hearts (Lauren) should love this tea.

Preparation
Boiling
Cavocorax

The tea itself sorta has a weird artificial texture eh? It’s a weird one, but it does grow on you, thankfully or I’d never have made it through 4oz! (I think I dumped a lot on you though. Hahaha)

Ozli

I think that might just be the nature of cinnamon? But I’m not a big fan of cinnamon, so, you know. You sent me a bunch!! But I like it, so it’s gonna be ok. I think K will end up liking this one, too. I’m curious to try it with milk & sugar, also… like a sweet treat? Have you tried that? Oh it’s got orange bits, I wonder if it’ll curdle….. :s

Cavocorax

I’ve never tried it with milk or sugar – it seemed pretty sweet already. I’m happy you like it though! I do too, even though there’s something strange about it. It became my evening tea for a while there, but 4oz was just TOO much. 4oz of most teas seems like too much nowadays. I like variety… #spoiled

I think I understeeped this because it’s far too weak. Or maybe I just rrrrreally want a coffee right now. :P

I overwhelmed this with milk and brown sugar, sadly. Gonna try it again without.

The almond did what it could to save it, but it was still a bit too cloves-y for me.

I had this with milk and sugar this morning. It felt criminal but it was still good.

Ozli

Profile

Bio

I drink a lot of tea (and coffee!) and do other things sometimes, like hug cats (3 black cats!) and homeschool a child (the Snick, Snickety Snickface the Sharkboy) and make art and draw things and watch too much television and pretend I’m not home when people knock on the door!

I LOVE A LOT OF THINGS.

My ratings probably skew high because of this, but I can’t help being optimistic, it is the natural way of things.
