New teas for Fall
It's amazing how much more hot tea I'm consuming now that the weather has turned chilly. (And as my DH and the electric company would tell you, I'm someone who finds anything under 80 degrees to be cold, so temps in the fifties and sixties mean it's practically freezing to me!) This weekend at Marshall's I picked up two new boxes of teabags to try, and I really enjoyed both of them.
The Maple Tea from Canada True took a couple of tries before I got it to my liking. The first full steeping of 5 minutes resulted in tea that was too strong and a bit bitter, but I tried it again steeped at three minutes and with a little sweetener and thought it was just right.
My favorite was this Caramel Peach Dessert Tea from Davidson's Teas, but then I have yet to try one of their dessert teas I did not like. The Davidson's tea was tasty and plenty sweet on its own, so I drunk it with no sweetener added and was quite satisfied.
