Merry Christmas Steepster!!
I made myself a giant breakfast in bed today, for no particular reason other than it’s Christmas and I wanted to make something more elaborate with the free time I had this morning. So I made over easy eggs with cheese and chives, some hashbrowns cooked in sesame oil (new cooking obsession, for sure) and topped with a mango salsa, and a bagel with some peach matcha infused marscapone for my “cream cheese” type spread.
The whole meal was delicious, but a highlight was definitely the bagel. This isn’t the first time that I’ve made a sort of matcha cream cheese, but it’s the first time I’ve used marscapone as my cheese of choice. I like it a lot as a bagel topping even when there isn’t matcha in it – it’s very light and airy, and super creamy. The peach was a great addition though because it added a lot more flavor to the topping, but maintained that insane freshness/airy quality and the out of this world level of creamy taste.
My instant thought upon finishing it was that I needed to make more, but with strawberry matcha and blueberry matcha. Of course – I didn’t: no one needs three bagels in one morning. However, definitely something that I’m going to be keeping in mind for the rest of my breakfast prep during my vacation…
Also; total side bar but what is it with Montreal and Blueberry Bagels!? For a city that is kind of known for having amazing bagel-game, I can’t seem to find a blueberry bagel in this damn city to save my life! I fucking love blueberry bagels and I’m definitely feeling quite sad without having any in my life right now. Common Montreal!
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
