This is one of the other teas I still had lying about here, and I must say it´s still as enjoyable as when I first had it. It keeps on reminding me of a typical Belgian treat called “peperkoek” (cookie with spices), so it´s ideal for this time of year just a bit before Saint Nicholas´day (6th December) and Christmas.
I definitely will enjoy many an afternoon sipping from this blend…

My German/Prussian grandmas and great aunts made pfefferneuse cookies between Thanksgiving and Christmas—sounds very similar! (They came out of the oven hard as rocks, then you put them in a stoneware crock with an apple until they softened. Made the kitchen smell good for days.)

That is indeed very similar. I remember (from visits to German Christmas markets) that they make them in different shapes (heart, santaclaus, etc), put a ribbon on and sell them as gifts. Our “peperkoek” is like a soft version, which you can buy tin-shaped (sliced or not, crystal sugar on top or not). It is sometimes toasted to serve with foie gras, or paté, which is quite nice I must admit. But my parents just eat a slice as a treat with their coffee, for instance.

Toasted! That sounds wonderful!
