Okay, Nougatine is just a fun word to say. Sounds like something that would be on the grocery shelf right by the Nutella and the Marmite.
Nougatine is also fun to smell. Fruity-sweet; if it were a bit stronger, it would make awesome potpourri.
Trying an experiment this afternoon. I made a single-serve pot, heavy on the dry mix and steeping time (10 full minutes). The hibiscus in it hits you first—gotta love it or gotta hate it—but the vanilla and lavender and almond leaves this wonderful pastry sweetness on your tongue in between sips.
Also have a mason jar steeping on the front porch of Shabby House for sun tea. Since the hot tea steeping time has to be so long, I’ll have to let it go till sundown and see how the iced version comes out tomorrow.
