The idea of gingerbread anything makes my mouth water…sweet spicy goodness. I was really excited when I saw this as part of the holiday collection and thought I’d never have enough of it.
The first time I tried it a few months ago, I found it wanting, so I just put it aside for more favoured tea’s. I went back to it this morning, and found the same the thing. A little weak on flavour. I did find some effects of a ginger tingle in the aftertaste, but overall…meh.
When I was at Chapter’s picking up some books, stationary and other things, I found some mulling spice by the Spice Hunter on sale. Purchased it on a whim.
After finishing my meh gingerbread tea, I thought to myself, should I try this with mulling spice? Yes! Let’s see what happens. This is what the blend was missing…mulling spice (and a bit of maple syrup)! So much tastier.
