Had another cup of this. Since my first initial brew brought some to a friends’ house – she adores mint – and we watched the first episode of Yellowjackets while sipping on this. She uses coffee cups and a keurig to brew tea ***shudders*** but I don’t say anything. She did have a fresh mint sprig from her garden to add in, which was interesting and of course made it stronger mint. She also added in much more sugar than even I use, so we basically had Candy Reindeer fuel lol
So today, long work day, stress – tea break. Dug this out and did a trial of a splash of milk to the 2 cup brown pot. My thoughts were a tea hot chocolate type with the milk since the chocolate is present. It worked, and didn’t. The mint gets lost a lot with a little milk, as did the chocolate. However, it thickened it and make it silkier to fit the taste. So I think next time I try with a little milk that I will increase brew time and strength to try and combat that.
Ate some ham and havarti cheese with crackers while sipping for my work tea. Used a tea cup, not a coffee cup. What a nice break it was!
