The holidays are past, but I’m evoking Christmas with today’s tea, Gingerbread by Adagio.com.
From the website:
Premium black tea from Sri Lanka flavored with sweet gingerbread. Both Gingerbread men and women agree: this unique tea is the perfect addition to any house (gingerbread or regular). A comforting old-world treat, delicious in any season. Warm and cozy, perfect sweetened or not.
Black Tea | High caffeine | Steep at 212° for 3 minutes.
The smell reminded me of Starbucks gingerbread lattes, so I had my husband steam some milk for me and I used a generous dollop of that with this tea.
The tea flavor was stronger than the gingerbread flavor, so this tasted more like a creamy, slightly spicy cup of milk tea than a dessert drink. It was delicious with one of my sugar-glazed treacle buns.
