2020 Advent Swap – Day 8
My roommate and I were trying to be cheap after enjoying a fancy expensive tea on an afternoon out, haha!
I have to ask, Devon Bartholomew, what fancy and expensive tea did you and your roommate enjoy that day?? This one may not be fancy, but it’s certainly hitting the spot tonight. I don’t think I’ve ever had a tea quite like it. Or I guess it would be more of a tea beverage? I’m not sure what to call it. After doing a little searching online, it looks like the main ingredients are black tea powder, milk powder, and sugar, so it reminds me of a powdered hot chocolate in tea form. It doesn’t taste like hot chocolate, of course, but it has that same creamy consistency. It’s like powdered coffee creamer. I think maybe it feels a bit nostalgic as well, even though I’ve never had it before, and it seems right for the holiday season. It’s almost got a bit of a burnt coffee flavor to it, or rather a deep roasted coffee flavor. It is not as simple as I expected, and while it’s not something I would buy a big box of, I am enjoying it tonight.
Flavors: Burnt Sugar, Coffee, Creamy, Roasted
