drank Buttercream by DAVIDsTEA
1195 tasting notes

I finally have conquered the 25 pound box of peaches. I’m so proud. Except like 6 jars of jam are in my fridge but I should be getting rid of 6 in the next couple of days to people so yay freezer space.

Now I have to clean up the massive mess that is my kitchen now. Do not want.

It was quite nice between preserving and jam to see that a big box of tea from TeaEqualsBliss came in the mail, except it was at the leasing office soooo..I was lazy and drove myself there because I probably would have passed out on the way back. LOTS OF TEA!

I was so so so excited to see this one in there, because I did not discover DT until this one was gone. I had hoped maybe it would come back with the cupcake teas but that did not happen. Now I feel victorious!

This is indeed creamy but the mango is a bit too obvious in the taste. It smells so good though, I kind of lose control of myself and end up dipping my nose in the tea. It truly smells like buttercream.

Letting it cool down a bit. I’d ice it but I’m out of ice from blanching peaches and for some reason the icemaker won’t make more? Is it mad about all the peaches sharing its territory? It’s getting to the point I’d go out and buy a bag of ice if I had any space, I want my ice! It’s far better once it’s cooled a bit. The mango becomes more like a sweetness than a fruit flavor. It gets more buttery too.

So going to have to try this iced really soon even though there are tons of other things to try!

You really did a good job there. My mom had a nack for picking the hottest day of Summer to can peaches. It smelled good but after awhile she got cranky “stop running through the kitchen you kids!” Mostly they were Freestone Peaches and appreciated in the Winter! You’ll be so glad if you save some until then! You should be so proud of yourself!

That’s the plan! I really wanted to do actual canning but I don’t have a stockpot deep enough, and I had already spent so much on the sugar, jars, and pectin (and the peaches) that I didn’t want to bother with that too, so freezer everything it was. Now there’s 6 24oz tubs of sliced peaches ready for peach pie for…Thanksgiving!

So jealous of your peaches! I hope there’s a delectable peach cobbler in your future. Now I’m off to make a chocolate mug cake cause I just need some dessert right now!

Buttercream had mango?? Interesting. That’s one I missed from DT too, that everyone was raving about.
