I’m in a brown mood today. Not a bad brown mood – I’m in quite a good mood actually – I just feel very attracted to brown today. Brown shirt, brown flip flops, brown eye shadows, bronzer instead of blush… It’s just a happy brown day.
But because of my affinity toward brown, I didn’t want a sweet or fruity tea today. I wanted something solid. I would say I wanted something brown but most teas end up brown… Rather I wanted something that tasted like a happy brown. So I pulled this one out.
I probably could have used just a tiny bit more sugar or milk (for my 12 oz travel mug I pretty much just waved the sugar and milk over it) to make it a wee bit smoother because this was encroaching upon the taste I would want for a grumpy brown day, but ultimately it worked out. Very nutty tasting, maybe malty (I’m still I little unsure as to that actual taste but I’m pretty sure that’s what I got more toward the end of the mug), strong and a little rough, but not bad. Good for a happy brown day.
