Okay seriously, naming anything after a Tennessee Williams drama, especially a tea, is a bad idea.
Last night was a good night, I recreated this smoked sausage and vegetable dish my grandma used to always make me when I was a kid. Today is her birthday, so even better timing.
Also pleased I do not have to go to Canada just yet so I can continue having healthcare till I’m 26. Hahaha it’s the month after that that’s the problem next year though. Guess that’s why I’m doing job search work in a class right?? And also we can get to the real issues now like making sure the Formula 1 world championship is decided in this country and goes to my favorite driver.
So I am not actually drinking this tea. I steeped it double strength and then put it in my chocolate oatmeal. I couldn’t decide what to actually use, but I figured all these ETS samples I got would be good, and adding chai of some sort would be perfect.
While obviously it’s hard to taste if the chocolate is really there when you start off with something very chocolatey, the spices are really tasty with chocolate. And I didn’t realize this was an Assam, so there’s definitely a bolder flavor all around in the oatmeal.
I rarely ever eat breakfast when on my own, so this is awesome. My boyfriend always gets me something in the morning but he is in love with Dunkin Donuts and I just feel disgusting eating donuts. So maybe I’ll just start making myself oatmeal with tea already in it.
I still have half the cup but I made a cup of something else in a mug so I’m not sure if I want to try it yet. I think to actually drink it, I’d rather make it on the stovetop in milk and water. Although it is a definite winner for just oatmeal, I have to say.
