If you thought this war was over, you were wrong. If you guessed that this tea taster was down for the count– well, you were half right. However, she is fighting to get back in form. There is tea to taste. It’s the civilized thing to do.
Our next contender is a surprisingly toned athlete. Though not too surprising, as this one hails from the Twinings of London Canadian branch (Twinnings North America) in Brampton Ontario. That makes this tea a true Canadian with British ancestry.
Don’t give me that look. Just because I’m Canadian with British roots doesn’t make this tea-battle biased and unfair in the least. This contender has to meet stringent requirements as the rest of them did.
That being said, let’s see what this challenger has to offer. Thus reads it’s motto: Dare to resist the smooth, creamy taste of this vanilla flavored peppermint tea.
It’s true: Canadians are difficult to resist. It’s our glowing charm.
However, does this Canadian (not me, the tea) have any power behind its subtle creamy vanilla punch?
On first taste the answer was yes. In fact I knew right away that this one would come down to a “T tastes Tea” taste off.
Two pots of tea were consumed in the writing of this challenge. The clear winner came out swinging. It was no contest at all as a rather smooth Canadian quickly took out it’s American opponent. Go Canada!
Yes, this tea has a really nice left hook. I was hooked from the start. It truly is very creamy, raising my regular peppermint tea enjoyment up a great big notch.
I’m pleased to inform you that this mild mannered, yet strong and irresistible Canadian (still talking about the tea… maybe.) pairs really well with something chocolate. The proudly Canadian “Good Bites” are really good even if my husband ate one, looked at the package and questioningly said to me “Good Bites?” My surprised response to him was, “You don’t think they’re good?” He retorted, “I wouldn’t call them good.” There was a definite emphasis on the good.
No matter. There was more for me.
Here’s a Good Bite
“Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good–except God alone.Mark 10:18
“Why callest thou me good? This is said, not as denying that He was good, or as being angry with him for calling Him so, but in order to lead this young man to a true knowledge of Him, and His goodness, and even of His proper deity:
There is none good, but one, that is, God; some render it, “but one God”, as the Vulgate Latin, Syriac, and Arabic versions; and so the words are a proof of the unity of the divine being, and agree with Deuteronomy 6:4, but are not to be understood to the exclusion of the Son and Spirit, who, with the Father, are the one God: nor do these words at all militate against the deity of Christ, or prove that he is not God…”Gills Exposition of the Entire Bible
