Well, friends, it’s winter. Clammy gray sky, temperature 30 degrees with 20 to go before we bottom out tonight, we are de-treed, de-decorated, and de-flated at the prospect of returning to work Monday.
A little spice sounded just like what the afternoon needs. TeaMaze’s take on gingerbread fits the spice category, but I’m not sure it conveys “baked goods” very strongly. The ingredient list on the website says that there’s lemon peel, but what’s in my packet looks like orange. So instead of gingerbread with a little lemon zest, we’ve got a pleasantly juicy citrus-and-spice melange to take the chill off.
I’m thinking the results might be a little different with milk and sweetener, but now that I just got warm, I’m reluctant to throw off the blanket to make another cup. Can you take care of that for me?
