Happy Holidays

October 13, 2014

Lots of things to celebrate today.

New Tea

Kaya, Xyra

One of the foods Native Americans introduced to the European settlers is the pumpkin. So I thought we should make The Republic of Tea's Pumpkin Spice tea.

This looks like it should be really good.
The blend includes: "black tea, ginger, cinnamon, natural ginger and pumpkin flavors, sweet blackberry leaves, nutmeg, cloves, allspice"...I bet it won't need any sweetener.
How do we brew this one?
The paper says, "Heat fresh water to a rolling boil, pour over tea and steep 3-5 minutes if using a tea bag. Add a splash of warm milk."
Bag into the pot...water...set the timer.
Oh, no! We've added too much water. This may be on the weak side.
(4 minutes later)
I've got my cup, the warm milk, and some pumpkin butter for on toast.  This should be a good pumpkin morning.
Smells really good. Tastes good too. I was right, no sugar needed - spicy and sweet.
Now, let's try it with the milk.
Yuuuummmm!  This is really good. I definitely want to try this again with the right amount of water.

What is your favorite way to enjoy pumpkin?
