It is Friday Y’all! At the moment I am enjoying a break and having some Earl Grey from Taylor’s. What I am not having is one of the samples I had of the Numi teas.
Yesterday afternoon I made a pot of the Golden Chai. Ingredients are Assam Black Tea, Cinnamon,Cardamom, Ginger,Cloves. On opening the packet there was a vague smell of cinnamon.
After steeping it the recommended length of time I was hesitant to take a sip. There was almost no smell of a good chai. The first sip was really weak on flavor so I let it steep another minute. All in all it had very little flavor. I didn’t even finish it. I’m going to take a giant leap here and say I will not be having that again. No more trying the samples even.
I was very disappointed. Oh, well, at least I have about 5 other chai teas to try!
We went to a new place to eat last night. They just opened. The Black Bear Diner. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, and PIE! Oh the beautiful pies and cobblers. And there was a bear claw bigger than my head! I tried the pecan encrusted trout with steamed vegetables and plain red skinned potatoes. The server was wonderful. He brought me actual room temperature water, used strictly Romaine on my side salad and was very helpful. I liked that they had an allergen section on the menu, which is huge and so are the portions! I will definitely go back there.
Any exciting plans for the week-end? It seems some of our UK folks are getting pounded with snow and cold so we hope they are safe and warm!
Enjoy your day, Be Nice, Drink Tea xx Patricia
