Mastress Alita’s sipdown challenge National Kiss a Ginger Day / National Marzipan Day Tea #1
Well, I’ll post these even though Steepster is on another freeze. Thanks very much again for the teas, AJRimmer! This not only has ginger BUT ALSO almond, so yay! Two in one for the challenge today! A huge mix of ingredients here, but it looks like there isn’t very much black tea here. The brew says it too – the color is extremely pale brown. I wouldn’t say this tastes like gingerbread as the apple is very noticeable. But then the second steep is mostly ginger flavored to the point where the color of the brew and the flavor is making me think of turmeric. Neither steep was saying gingerbread to me. Gingerbread cookies aren’t this healthy!
