I’m drinking a lot of of this lately, so I’m not sure what new I can add to this tasting note.
So, instead, I’ll tell you what I’m paring this with today. :) Starbucks Perfect Oatmeal. That’s right, I run downstairs to our Starbucks, get oatmeal, then come back to my office to make a good cup of tea. I always thought the oatmeal was misnamed. I mean, yeah, it was Starbucks, and yeah, it’s oatmeal… but perfect? Not so much. That was before I learned that you can get all three toppings (brown sugar, dried fruits, and nuts) for the same price. Now, it really is perfect, and I totally get the name.
The nuts/cranberries/brown sugar feels very much like the holidays, to me, too. Which makes it pair exceptionally well with the Holiday Tea. :)
