Next one up from my “Christmas Cookies” sampler! I actually like thumbprint cookies a lot, though I tend to go for apricot jam (my favorite) instead of the usual raspberry. This tea has a lot of dried apple pieces in it, as well as the generic tea leaves, hibiscus, and rose hips. Dry scent is, again, surprisingly weak. I can smell a bit of hibiscus and hazelnut, which makes for an odd combination.

The steeped cup also smells of hibiscus with a bit of hazelnut added in. Not excited… :P Nope nope nope. Actually, I think this would come pretty close to the idea of a thumbprint cookie, but the hibiscus just makes the “jam” part of it way too tart. If there wasn’t hibiscus, I think this would actually be fairly tasty! :P Stupid hibby!

Try picking the hibby out?

Not worth, ha ha. :P

My mom ordered a jam basket from her sister for all of us kids, which means I now have six jars of jam that I have no idea what to do with. Thumbprint cookies might just be in my future!

Cameron B.

Yummy! You could also make jam and oatmeal bars! Delish.

Don’t Russians use jam in teas as a sweetener?

OMGsrsly

YES. Although I use the Canadian Living blueberry oat bars and use 1 cup of jam instead of making filling. Depending on the jam I use orange or lemon zest, or vanilla.

Daddyselephant

Y’all are awesome

Daddyselephant

The jam and oatmeal bars sounds like I wrote it, which cracks me up. My wife is super excited to try those, since two of the jars are cherry and she looooves cherry. We will be making some this weekend!

Cameron B.

Oooh I love cherry, too! Those will be amazing. :D

OMGsrsly

I totally have oat bars in the oven, using some peach-lavender jam I made a couple years ago. I put vanilla in the oat mix. :D

I also prefer apricot over raspberry. I totally would try this, but thanks for the hibby warning. Blech!

Daddyselephant

We’re going to make two batches, a cherry one for De to take to work and a strawberry one for me at home. I think I’ll use almond for the cherry bars and vanilla for the strawberry! I should find a recipe that calls for water and experiment with tea oat bars….

Cameron B.

OMGsrslyHAH, I ended up making some last night too! I used some apple pie jam that miss Stephanie made and sent me for Christmas. Delish! :D

OMGsrsly

I saw your picture but was falling asleep so I didn’t comment. :D Aisling, those flavour combos sound GREAT.

Daddyselephant

I love that this tasting note has become “LET’S ALL COOK WITH JAM

Roswell Strange

(Is sad because I have no jam at home to cook with)

Daddyselephant

If only you worked in some kind of grocery store… ;)

Plunkybug

Mmmm, those sound good aisling and omgsrsly.

OMGsrsly

Hahahaha, good one Aisling. Yeah, I had mine for breakfast. I use WAY less sugar than the Pioneer Woman recipe though. Jam is sweet anyways.
