We did a big family breakfast today, and I offered to make a huge pitcher of iced tea for us all to split over breakfast. I don’t think it was lost on any of us that this could quite possibly be the last giant family breakfast we have for a really long time, what with me heading out to Montreal in 24 days.
That’s right; I am officially at the point where I’m counting the days now. I’m both that excited, and that terrified…
As for the tea!? Well, I get that this is very old tea – but I don’t feel like you can taste the age at all, which is a very pleasant surprise. Currant can be a really medicinal flavour when done poorly too, and I don’t find this medicinal either – so that’s really both of my biggest fears about this tea totally set aside! Instead it’s sweet and juicy, with an almost black currant candy sort of flavour. My mom put it best; it tastes like if Kool Aid came in a black currant flavour. I mostly agree with that, except I do think it’s less sugary tasting that a typical Kool Aid. That’s the right ball park in terms of flavour though.
I LOVE IT.
