Another suprisingly tasty gift-boxed blend. Nice strong vanilla keeps the spice from overpowering. You can taste both the apple and the orange. Not often you get one with this many ingredients that represents them all fairly well.
…of course, the upside to being the “_____ will drink anything; she likes tea” person are the nice little surprise packets that turn out surprisingly good.
Like this one. Apple-orange-vanilla. Nice. Made my morning. (Wouldn’t take much; seasonal gloom has hit me like a road train.)
Anybody besides me wondering if we’ll still be in long johns come July? Blustery and chill this morning, giving way to some scraps of cold sun later on—-grabbed this at work because it was handy, and I was freezing. It’s a good steeper when all you have is sloppily microwaved work water. More fruit-vanilla than spice, which is OK by me. I’m going to have to count remaining bags and use them parsimoniously.
I like this better each time I try it. Apple and vanilla—not exactly pie-like because of the other stuff, but still quite nice, not too picky on water temp or steep time, which is handy at work.
Which I did get to today, wicked sleet notwithstanding, but which is looking a little iffy for tomorrow. Driveway is a mess; we almost weren’t able to pull in to park and the snow shovels are currently frozen in the shed. (We, uh, forgot to get them out before the storm started last night. Go ahead. Laugh.)
But for the moment, chicks are all in the nest and we are warm.
