Happy New Year’s Eve , We had a lot of leftover baking ingredients from Christmas so I ended up making this Magnolia Bakery Copycat Banana Pudding recipe and the family loved it.
Lately I’ve been trying to drink up older teas or things I don’t normally reach for. This is one of those teas It was a gift from my grandparents that they brought back from a trip to Europe. I made a small pot of this to drink today and revisit.
I mainly get the taste of the green tea base from this tea and given the quality of it actually I believe I should try making this tea cold next time. The mango and sea buckthorn berries provide a slightly floral mango medicinal note to the tea. I have a big bag of this to go through so cold brewing it might be the best way to use it up.
Flavors: Astringent, Bitter, Drying, Floral, Mango, Metallic, Vegetal
I don’t really know how to rate this – it’s the best green available at my home airport lounge, so I drink it whenever I’m traveling – more out of habit than strong preference. It gets bitter very easily, and I rarely finish my cup. I’m making this sound so much worse than it is – it really does have a pleasant citrusy body to it, and it goes well with my traditional lounge melon and banana platter.
In other news, my luggage is (half) lost again. It was the bag in which I had placed my sandwich, so this is all very sad. I might have to go out into a torrential Rome and score some more foods. BAD airline. BAD.
ETA: The sandwich was in the other bag! The sandwich is safe!
Bought this cheap in a local supermarket and was pleasantly surprised. I don’t know if the “Anhui black tea” bit in the company’s description is really true. The leaves look like BOP soaked in blueberry… At any rate, as far as simple flavored teas go, this one was quite nice, the blueberry making a strong enough impact on taste and giving a pleasant aroma to the liquor.
This is a vanilla rooibos tea from a Swedish company, little known outside Sweden it seems. I had a good time tasting Kobbs’ blueberry tea, and I love rooibos, so I came to Röd Skymning with high hopes. Unfortunately, even after 5+ minutes of steeping, the characteristic rooibos aroma just wasn’t coming through, and what little did was utterly obliterated by vanilla flavoring (and it too was not very tasty).
