Those whole cloves! Why isn’t this part of the upcoming winter collection instead? Combined with half-and-half, it’s like a one-toned clove-heavy chai. The clove is so strong that after enough sips, I swear it’s numbing my tongue. Very much like those clove ribbon candies you can buy around Christmas.

As much as I like cloves, this is a little too simplistic. As this cools, I am reminded of the way clove tastes combined with pickled beets. My grandma is a little heavy-handed on the cloves whenever she pickles them, and it’s SO much like that. Love the cloved up pickled beets, but a cooled off tea reminiscent of that is obviously a little weird.

I’m watching the Social Network for the first time, and it’s going on in the background as I write this. A little boring, but at least I can say I “watched” it now.

cloved pickled beets…. never heard of them! sounds great with beets…. um maybe not in tea though!!!

OMGsrsly

Your grandma’s picked beets sound like my gramma’s! I love them like that. Too bad they’re only available home-made. :) (Also not something I’d want in a tea. How odd!)

Our grandmas totally know where it’s at, so you’re really missing out, James!

Yep. Home made pickling spice is totally where it’s at. :) I think I need to find a large amount of beets and pickle some when I get back!
