drank Forever Nuts by DAVIDsTEA
2221 tasting notes

I was reading tasting notes, and Christina mentioned mixing this tea with something else to change the aftertaste. She suggested Creme Caramel Rooibos, which I don’t have, so I mixed 1 tbsp this with 1 tsp Sweet Temptation rooibos from Cornelia Bean.

And topped it with maple whipped cream, because when I have 1L whipping cream in the fridge I have NO resistance whatsoever. I must consume that deliciousness.

So. The tea. Yeah. That works nicely. The maple, the nougaty rooibos, the sweet nutty dessert flavour of Forever Nuts.

Just disappointed it didn’t brew up pink. Again. (I keep lol-ing at the rating. Why did I buy the 250g tin?!)

Edit: You know, sitting here sipping this, I think it’s the IDEA of the tea that I like, and so I keep drinking it hoping it will live up to my dreams. It’s OK, but it’s not ever as amazing as I hope.

Oh, the difference between the dream and the reality…. le sigh. Though I want some of that maple whipped cream you keep talking about. I bet that’s close to dreamy.

OMGsrsly

Oh yeah! So dreamy. It’s just maple syrup (1 tsp to 2-3 tbsp, depending on tastes) and whipping cream, whipped. A tiny pinch of salt if you lean that way.

Of gosh, this just inspired me to put whipping cream on the shopping list.. :)

OMGsrsly

Just.. don’t get the 1L at Costco if you live alone. :D

caile

lol Was planning a Costco trip actually, but at least there are two of us here. ;-)

oddree

Oooh recipe, thanks!

OMGsrsly

I get it once a month or so, and am overloaded for a couple weeks… but I keep buying it. Because cream is so delicious. :)

caile

Do you just whip some up as you need (want) it, or do you make a batch to last for a couple days?

OMGsrsly

I make it as needed usually. Whipped cream gets watery if left in the fridge. You can just pour the water out and stir it a bit, but it’s less nice. :) I have a stick blender with a whisk attachment, so I’ll whip up a couple tbsp cream with 1 tsp maple syrup. If I make more, I end up eating it all with a spoon. :D

caile

Making fresh as needed sounds like the way to go. Smiles.. I want to eat it with a spoon! :)
