A fun Thanksgiving pick-me-up with a delightful taste!
I can not write a post having anything to do with Thanksgiving without first acknowledging that I live and work on land covered by the Williams Treaties and Johnson-Butler Purchase. For thousands of years, Indigenous peoples inhabited and cared for this land. The City of Toronto is the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. I would encourage everyone to go learn more about the history of the land they live on, and the real history of the settling of these lands and the mistreatment of the First Nations peoples that continues even to this day.
Being that it is a lazy holiday Monday here, I’m putting out a lazy review, late, without even any pictures! (Ok, I just went and took one, I can’t publish a post without *any* pictures. Here you go -)
I was really not a big fan of the first two. Even together they were sort of meh. Mixed with Butterscotch Chai though – yum!!
I went with two scoops of Butterscotch Chai, one scoop of Pumpkin Chai, and one scoop of Organic Stormy Night in a 32 oz steeper. Low highest common denominator across them is 4-5 minutes at 95 degrees, so I did my first steep for 4 at 95.
What came out was shockingly delicious! Obviously it leans heavily into the butterscotch, but the smells and tastes of the other two are still very clear and quite potent. The pumpkin scent really stands out, and the cinnamon really pops in the taste. Layer all that on a delicious base of butterscotch yumminess, and you’ve got a very easy to drink and enjoyable tea. There’s even a little of the pepper from the Organic Stormy Night in the aftertaste!
It’s also a great way to caffeine-up the Butterscotch Chai with nice, complementary black teas!
That’s it! That’s your holiday Monday review! I’ve got a turkey to cook and chores to do, so I’ll have a bit more of this yummy tea and then get at it!
Until next time, happy steeping!
