The TTB has arrived! So big, so many teas… no chance to try them all!
I was in a mood for green tea, but also I didn’t wanted to fuss about the temperature, so houjicha is perfect for that.
I think that the base is working so well with those spices in, and although I am missing a few spices that are in gingebread (at least here); for instance (star) anise, it is actually pretty good example of gingebread tea. The ginger was definitely prominent, though a bit more than expected. But at least it was warming and sugar in? Absolutely no problem for me!
