So I get these daily emails from this website called Tasting Table. Every once in a while I get an email that catches my attention. They usually involve coffee, beer or another alcoholic beverage.
I heart coffee, a lot. But sometimes when I'm feeling audacious I like to mix it up with some tea. I don't really know anything about tea other than that it can be tasty and that the stuff Celestial Seasonings makes, Tension Tamer, soothes my soul.
If you know me personally you know that I can be indecisive at times... I remember making that tough decision back in high school on whether to join the math club or play ice hockey. But sometimes a more complex dilemma arises.. coffee or tea, beatles or stones, canon or nikon, chicken or egg, pumpkin pie or apple pie!!?!??? Well one solution to my indecisiveness (between coffee and tea) is to mix the two. I learned this technique in China when I thought my friend Jimmy was totally messing with me and ordered me a drink with half coffee and half tea. But I recently learned, thanks to Tasting Table, that there is an even simpler solution.
It's this thing they call cascara, and it's normally a byproduct of coffee. It's basically tea made from the dried skins of coffee cherries. Supposedly it gives you a taste of both worlds... learn more about it here
I want to try some... and I still have yet to try it. So if anyone can help me with my search I will reward you by purchasing (your name here) and myself a cup of this phenomenon. I am offering a reward because I am feeling lazy and do not want to search it out myself.
I love you all.
P.S. if you like recycling and saving the world and all that stuff, you are ultimately drinking something recycled.
