So stoked to finally try this! Since I’m trying to avoid caffeine while sick, this seems to fit the bill. I was really curious as to how this date-heavy blend would taste, especially combined with my beloved cardamom. My boyfriend was oh-so generous to pick some of this up all the way from Köln, where the owner pointed out that his has special brewing instructions.
You’re basically supposed to brew it for fifteen minutes, which I did, and added two Perfect Teaspoons into a Nordic Mug. I tasted a shred of dates when this was piping hot, but now that it’s cooled down a bit, I’m getting mostly baked apple with a sprinkling of brown sugar and cinnamon. I was expecting this to taste more exotic, if-you-will, like a fancy Middle Eastern dessert but rather, I get apple pie. It’s good! But just not what I was expecting.
I’ll keep experimenting to see if I can get more of the date, cardamom, and ginger notes.
