It is still ridiculously humid in TO, so I have still have not had any hot tea beverages, and I have so many to try!!!
Yesterday I went to ‘Toys R Us’ to buy a kiddie pool. Not for me…but for the furry beast (shep/lab cross) that I live with, to help him get through the heat. He still prefers the stink water creek a few minutes away…but will jump in the kiddie pool if encouraged.
Back to the tea….on opening the bag I smell over-ripe pears. This told me that this would be fairly sweet on it’s own, without any sugar additives.
Because of the heat, my first tasting of this one is as a cold brew, and I have to say…I am surprised that I like this as much as I do. When I first saw the fennel seeds as part of the mix I was like “What??!!!” This will not be good. WRONG!! This is my second fave cold brew…a real surprise to self.
Cold brew tastes like sweet pear. No tartness. Just sweet pear. Sugar is not needed here…it is sweet on it’s own. YUM!!!! I will be sad when it’s gone (2-3 cold brews left). But, maybe I will find something as good. The tea journey continues…. :)
