So I never heard of Four O’Clock Teas until my friend gave me a gift last year that came with 4 jars of different (though seemingly plain) teas and a glass tea bottle (tumbler? thermos?). I’ve used the bottle many times but have never been enthused about any of the teas. Interestingly enough, Four O’ Clock is the brand they serve at my school.
Anyways, today I realized my milk goes bad soon and I wanted something sweet (aka whipped cream) so that meant a latte was in order. And as an extra dose of yum for my sweet tooth, I turned to my London Fog recipe with honey and vanilla. Since I have a lot of this tea, I figured might as well try it out.
The latte ended up being super good. The tea was flavorful enough that it provided a silky and smooth citrus flavor without being too stark against the vanilla and honey. The whipped cream was an extra bit of deliciousness on what was a sweet and tasty nighttime treat. I couldn’t tell you if the tea is amazing given the other ingredients added that would have impacted the overall flavor but I can say that it was good made this way and thus I know how I’ll be making my way through the rest of the jar of this tea.
