Ugh. I seriously need to stop buying so much of my faves all at once. I overindulged in this one awhile back, didn’t want it for a long long time, and recently started drinking it again. Only it has now been nearly two years that I’ve had my tin, and some flavour/smoothness has been lost. No surprise, time does that to consumables. Duh.
There isn’t much left, maybe fifteen grams out of 70. Could be worse, right?

I wonder if there are any fun things I could do with the last of it. Latte? nah. I’ve had it iced before. Hmmm. I must think on it!

Marinade for chicken?

Roswell Strange

Could make an interesting Soup Stock as well…

I haven’t had this one in ages, but I remember loving it. It might be time to re-order.

Evol- I was thinking about chicken! or maybe fish?

Roswell – Oooh that’d be different. I’ve never made stock out of tea before! :)

M – Me too. I can’t wait for a fresh supply!!

Evol Ving Ness

Fish, yes! I hadn’t considered that. Might work. I like the soup stock idea too. I’d be tempted to add it at the very end as a finishing touch. Roswell Strange, have you tried this already? If so, how did you approach it?

Evol Ving Ness

I think the flavours in this one would go nicely as a marinade for chicken, mushrooms, carrots, and onions to be roasted in the oven. Maybe a touch of maple syrup.

@Evol Ving Ness I can’t say I’ve ever tried any teas as rubs because I don’t eat meat – but I’ve tried other teas for soup stock before (not this one). Basically, you brew a slightly concentrated pot (like, a western sized pot) and just use that as the stock you cook the rest of the soup in. I think the ingredients you listed for the marinade would likely work for the soup though: carrot, onion, mushrooms, and chicken.

Evol Ving Ness

Thank you. And yes, it does show promise as a soup. I am going to give it a try one of these days.

Indigobloom

I saw one of those 30second cooking vids online with fish, potatoes and asparagus. I may try something like that using this as a glaze.
Roswell- Now I’m really curious about making it as a soup! I’ve only really thought about Lapsang before

Roswell Strange

Genmaicha makes a nice stock base too :)

Evol Ving Ness

Wow! Those all sound great too.

Indigobloom

Ahhh I’ve been meaning to try genmaicha!

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
