My second day visiting stores while in Winnipeg we went to two stores, but took some time in between to go out for lunch. I requested that we go to the Prairie Ink in Grant Park because I adored Prairie Ink when I lived in Saskatoon and I had no idea that Winnipeg had one as well! It was a deeply nostalgic moment for me, seeing as I used to eat at the Prairie Ink in Saskatoon almost weekly – it’s my favourite restaurant!
I ordered the most amazing watermelon, red onion, and feta salad – it was easily the best thing that I ate on the entire trip! With my salad I had a pot of tea; I’m not actually entirely sure this is the tea that I had though. I had originally asked for a spiced apple tea, but was told they were out of stock so I asked the waiter to just pick whatever his favourite tea was as a substitution. This is what he chose; and all he had mentioned when he served it was that it was a dragonfruit tea. Prairie Ink only serves teas from Tealish or Tea Forte, and after a quick Google search later in the evening I saw that Tea Forte doesn’t carry a dragon fruit tea – but Tealish had this one. So my assumption is that this is what I drank.
It was actually really lovely; reminded me a lot of the dragonfruit tisane that I used to buy all the time from Cuppa’T – that one was a dragonfruit cranberry, and this had the same tropical, sweet dragonfruit notes (with a hint of apple) and crisp tartness at the finish. Very, very pleasant! And smooth!
