Adagio Advent Calendar – Day 12

S’mores-flavored things always sound so good to me in theory, but never quite pan out. I think I’ve had one s’mores ice cream that was good, and everything else has been meh. So I’m not optimistic, but here we are! This has lapsang in it, which should be interesting at least.

I do get a bit of smoke from the lapsang, but it’s pleasant and not overwhelming. I get a little bit of marshmallow as well. Unfortunately, the chocolate flavor is ruining this for me with its artificial waxy taste.

Boo, chocolate flavoring, boo! :(

Soooo I make my own s’mores ice cream if you want to try making your own! I mix two cups whole cream until they have stuff peaks, then stir in a can of sweetened condensed milk, a big jar of marshmallow fluff, a little vanilla, and 1.5-2 packages of crushed graham crackers. Basically taste it and add more stuff as needed. Freeze for eight hours, then serve with brownies. I actually turned mine into a baked alaska last time, which was great. I love making no churn ice cream (:

Bio

Hi, I’m Cameron!

I’m a 30-something software engineer currently living in Austin, Texas with my husband and our two pugs, Gobo and Ume. I tend to cycle between my different hobbies, and they include piano, knitting, video games, board games, miniature painting, planners, bento, KBeauty, and – of course – TEA! But really, what I’m best at is “collecting” hobby-related things… ;)

~ 2024 SIPDOWN CHALLENGE! ~
- May Sipdowns: 20
- Total 2024 Sipdowns: 33

I prefer my tea lukewarm or at room temperature and without milk or sugar. I steep Western style, and fluctuate between using big mugs or small teapots depending on the season.

I am always up for a swap! Just let me know if you’d like to try something in my cupboard.

Tea Preferences:
I enjoy both flavored and unflavored teas in many forms. These days, I drink mostly flavored teas, and I tend to gravitate most toward black, green, oolong, and herbal varieties. I do have a special fondness for straight Japanese green teas, however.

I do not sweeten my teas, and pre-sweetened teas are usually too sweet for me. I also do not enjoy stevia.

I tend to reach for fruitier flavors rather than desserty ones these days, but I do have favorites from both categories. Willing to try anything once! There are a few ingredients/flavors that aren’t generally my jam, such as coconut, rose, lavender, and chocolate flavoring. But I also have teas that I love with some of those things, too! :)

Favorite Companies:
3 Leaf
Bird & Blend
Dammann Frères
Harney & Sons
Kyoto Obubu Tea Farms
Lupicia
Old Barrel Tea Co
Simpson & Vail
Taiwan Tea Crafts
TeaVivre

Tea Rating Scale:
90-100: Outstanding! Permanent cupboard resident
80-89: Great – a possible staple
70-79: Good, but I wouldn’t buy it
60-69: It’s decent
50-59: Meh… I may or may not have finished the cup
40-49: Ick. Couldn’t finish it.
00-39: Repulsive, I spat it out

I will sometimes refrain from rating a tea if I feel I’m too biased due to my personal dislikes, or if I suspect the sample has been compromised by age or scent contamination.
