i promise you that there ARE teas other than butiki teas in my cupboard though i’m pretty sure the ratio, at least in terms of sheer volume leans towards Butiki, Verdant and Upton at the moment. I apparently just got on to a Butiki kick earlier and haven’t gotten off. I still have a few samples that i’d like to try so i suspect there will be other non Stacy teas coming soon but we’ll see. Mostly i’m trying to take some time today to get working on the teas that I haven’t had a chance to really sit with and savour lately.

So this tea…I have no idea if this is close to plum pudding, but i do rather like the plum and spice that this tea provides. I had a cup of this with a small piece of brownie and the chocolate only served to enhance and bring out the plum notes. Delicious!

I like this one too.

I have no idea either. Never tasted plum pudding before but this is what I imagined it might taste like.

I’ve made it. Not something to make a second time if you make it the traditional way like I did and definately not vegan (although you can do a vegan modern version). I made it long ago. Suet! The spices are good.It’s really more of a fruitcake with liquor (can be stout) and a pound of suet (or butter now) and nuts. It’s steamed after wrapping it up and can be slow cooked in a crock pot. Should be served with hard sauce. I think Stacy did a good job. Just because it says Plum Pudding in the name, doesn’t mean the pudding has plums though. It’s just one of those odd things. Probably came from the addition of dried prunes.

Mmm. I went on a steamed pudding kick earlier this year and made a bunch by simmering a filled tin pudding mold in a big stockpot on my stove. My recipes were slightly updated for the times (less beef fat, more butter), but I do have many that I found in online archives from the 1600-1800s.

Hrm. I’m curious to try a (tiny) sample of your Plum Pudding batch to see how it compares to mine, if you have enough left. I don’t feel like mine is as tasty :P

Also – my mom always makes what we call Christmas Pudding, each year at Christmas. I suspect it’s the same thing as Plum Pudding (no plums). I adore it with a basic margarine/icing sugar sauce, but of course it’s meant to have the hard (rum) sauce, which is ok but not as good IMO.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
