On the Food Trail: Cake Salé
Long time no see! Okay, onward. I thought I’d give…
Ohmyga…this stuff is so good. I’m not a big hot tea drinker, but recently at the B&B I noticed a guest stirring milk and honey into their breakfast tea. It looked yummy. I’m pretty picky about tea flavors, but I do love chai. I think it reminds me of the calm and stillness after a yoga class (my old yoga studio serves little cups of chai after every class).
Anyway, I’ve tried a few brands, but this one beats them all. It smells so sweet and aromatic, and it tastes divine. It’s made with black tea, cinnamon, ginger, roasted chicory, cloves, cardamom (mmmmm…cardamom), nutmeg, black pepper, and vanilla bean. It’s dessert in a cup, and tastes sweet even without sugar. I add plain soymilk and a few spoonfuls of sugar (yes, I like it SWEET), and it makes for a dreamy, comforting treat.
