I told myself to go to bed nearly an hour ago but I wanted to write about this since it’s sadly gone. And look at that, I screwed up the picture when I took the screenshot. Oh well, good enough. The soothing sound of this 1:30am rain, the cooler breeze, and the wonderful scent of ozone is highly enjoyable too.
This is fantastic, full of spices, citrus, happiness. I really can taste that cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and orange. Then there’s a soft pop of cocoa. Rooibos can be finicky and woody but this was barely detectable amongst the spice and added milk. It took me a while to figure out what this was reminding me of. The particular balance of spices along with the orange was momentarily taunting me. Why, it’s my pepparkakor! Only with a touch of that cacao. I haven’t made those in so many years and it made me wish I had one to dunk into my tea.
This goes well with whole milk and I’m curious about how it would be iced/cold brewed. It may sound odd but it also paired well with my morning breakfast treat: fried eggs and toast.
Methinks I’ll need to order a full size of this from Amoda sometime soon.
