When I don’t know what tea I want, I have a randomizer on my excel spreadsheet to help me choose. When I don’t have my laptop, however, I open up steepster on my phone and ask my sister to pick a number between 1 and 16 (the # of steepster pages I have). Then I ask her to pick a number between 1 and 18 (the # of teas on a page). The last time she did this, she picked this tea and I made a latte.
For the first number, she almost always picks 3 so today I changed the sorting from the default “most drank” to “recently added”, figuring I’d end up with different teas. However, today she went with 12 and somehow magically ended up picking this tea again. I guess she just really wants me to drink my giant bag of sweet potato pie (thanks again Roswell Strange!).
I told Roswell Strange about this and mentioned how I didn’t really want a latte. She told me to make this one anyways since it’s good plain. I was skeptical but she’s right. It’s better as a latte because it gives it much needed body and rounds this out a bit. Plain, it’s still got the nice sweet potato and pastry flavors, it’s just the tiniest bit flat. That’s where the milk helps.
