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.
