First, I’d like to wish all the moms, moms-to-be & moms to fur babies a very happy Mother’s Day!
I didn’t do the scavenger hunt prompts last month because a) last month was pretty crazy for me, and b) several of the scavenger hunt prompts for April didn’t actually fit for my particular “cupboard” (my cupboard is much, much larger than a cupboard) so I decided to forgo the scavenger hunt last month. But I’m excited to play along this month.
Also, I would like to add that the “buy now” button on this tea goes to the caramel tea for adagio tea – and that tea is NOTHING like this tea. I don’t even have to try adagio’s caramel blend to know it’s nothing like this tea and it really irritates me that my teas have buttons on them that lead them to adagio’s site – I’m sorry, but I am of the belief that my teas are infinitely better than theirs. Maybe it’s ego, but, it irritates me.
Now that I’m finished with that rant – this tea is a “geeky tea” for May’s scavenger hunt. I created this tea originally as a Harry Potter inspired blend so I think it definitely qualifies. The base of this tea is a Yunnan grown Wild Arbor Assamica – which has a natural caramel-y taste & the caramel essence plays well to those notes. The cinnamon is soft & warming but not overly spicy. It’s cozy & comforting. I love the way the two flavors play together. This tea isn’t quite gone yet – but I now have a one-pot measurement less of these leaves – and this tea went really nicely with the horchata cream filled donut that I just devoured. (Voodoo donuts, I have a difficult time passing that place – and this time I couldn’t resist it). YUM!
