My oh my, still yet to review. After that ever so slightly psychologically scarring experience with the pu-erh, I needed something to exterminate the smoked meat flavour from my mouth. Citrus should work. And spices. Vanilla Citrus Spice!
I just downed four cups. No lie. Well, two Nordic mugs.
The first was 2 tablespoons for six minutes. And then I added a lump of crystallized honey. Really smoothed out the spices since they were a little on the sharper side without any additives. I’m not really getting vanilla from there, and the citrus is gentle. Blends in so well with the spices.
The cinnamon especially stands out for me. And I’m so relieved that I don’t taste the coriander. That’s a close one.
Second steep got the same treatment, and yielded a super flavourful mug.
I’ll have to try cold brewing this sometime.
