Wow, I actually finished a bag of tea! It’s been pretty unseasonably warm, but at least today was windy. I figured I should use this up before winter is totally over and it gets pushed even further back in the cupboard.
I also wanted something that would make me sleepy so I simmered all I had left of this (about 4 tsp?) in almost two cups of unsweetened vanilla almond milk with a bit of light cream in hopes of making its texture more like milk. I also added several cloves, cardamom pods, a few pieces of cinnamon bark, and a tiny dash of ginger.
Awesome! Much better than any other time I had made this tea. I always wanted to like it as the taste is nice and the smell is awesome, but the flavour wasn’t very full on its own. This way, I got lots of the nice baked apple taste but the spices were ramped up.
