From A Quarter to Tea

Lovely vanilla, butter and pecans flavors with a jasmine background. Definitely try more than one steep — the more steeps, the more the jasmine comes to play!

It was cold today! Only 55 and very windy. Tonight it is supposed to get down to 37. Do you know what that means? Yep, hot tea drinking weather!

After the mid and upper 80s of the weekend (and that is way too hot for me, even in July, much less May!) I was afraid we’d have no more chilly weather until October. But the rest of this week will be in the 60s and lower 70s. I like those temps much better. Yes, I’m weird.

All that was a build up to me going through my tea stash to find something dessert-y for this evening. I wanted something small, probably too small to make a pitcher of iced tea. And I found this little sample that I received with my last order from Quarter 2 Tea. Green tea is not my fave. In fact, I actively dislike it. But the pecan shortbread part snagged me. It was only a little bit, enough for one cup. I figured I should use it up.

I was pleasantly surprised. The grass flavor that I dislike was there, but it didn’t remind me of a pile of grass clipping rotting in the sun. There was a definite butter cookie flavor. I drank the first cup and re-steeped. That time the grass flavor overwhelmed the pleasant shortbread flavor. The first cup, though was very nice. I wouldn’t want to order any more of this, but it was good.

Sipdown! We had a good run, but I don’t think I’ll be picking up this one for a while, despite the convincing shortbread notes; not the biggest fan of that green base which somtimes veered on seaweed/marine. It was nice to try a 1oz quantity of it though; turns out it’s more consistent than my initial sample size led on.

Yeah, not sure if I’d like the ocean dumped into my shortbread.

I think this would be a personal staple with a different green base. :/

I wonder if you made a request, if it could be done?

You never know until you try.

Oversteeped this one too, but I might like it better than the spumoni green tea. The base is somewhat seaweedy – likely most noticeable because it’s oversteeped. There’s just enough jasmine to pick it up, but not to be in your face, and although I don’t really taste shortbread, the tea has a rich nuttiness to it as well. Not sure what I was expecting, but happy enough with the result!

The first sip of this tasted very shortbread like, but as it has cooled the taste faded a bit. I can taste the green tea… a little butter with a green bite. I can smell a little bit of jasmine, but it is faint. I think I’m getting a hint of pecan too. Sweetener makes the flavors a little more pronounced. It is nice and buttery, but I usually prefer stronger flavors. I would like to try this cold steeped.

That sounds like a tasty thing to do with real shortbread…

This sounds so interesting!

I have never made shortbread! I was inspired by Butiki’s Smoked Banana and Maple to make banana pancakes with some liquid smoke and syrup. They are a favorite in my house!
