So I decided to participate in a knitted washcloth and soap swap on Ravelry (kinda like Steepster for knitting :) I knew of this amazing store near where I work which makes handmade soap, so I made a pilgrimage there on Friday to get the soap part (Blood Orange Tequila soap! Fun!)
Tea related: I also got a spiced tea scented soy candle for our home, and a green tea mask for myself. If you’re curious:
I also knew that TBar is around the corner from there, so I popped my head in. I didn’t have time to sit and have a cup of tea, but I took an ounce of this tea home with me :) I was very curious about it because it had bee pollen nuggets in it like Golden Moon’s Honey Pear, which I found to be strange and delicious!
This tea is…promising. I don’t think I used enough leaf for the amount of water (12 oz water 1.5 teaspoons of tea). It has a creamy yet musky honey flavor, but it tastes weak. I’m not getting much caramel. I’m tasting what seems to be a hint of cinnamon (?) I’m rating it on the low side, but the rating will most likely improve once I make it with more leaf.
