On my Tastebuds: Roses and Cardamom

On my Tastebuds: Roses and Cardamom

Lately I’ve been enjoying the luxury of playing with flavors – with no particular goal in mind; just allowing myself time to experiment. Some days, finding making this time is hard – especially with so many to-do lists, cooking classes on the horizon, and friends to see. But somehow I’ve been making it happen. Lately so, even if it’s just by spending 5 minutes here and there flavoring my latest batch of Kombucha. Normally, I am not hugely fond of floral flavors. Even lavender can overwhelm me. But with this particular blend, the cardamom nicely balances out the rosebuds, and gives the tea a deeper taste, with only light floral notes at the finish. Kind of like that fancy wine I had somewhere that one time. Are you playing with flavors too? What are your current flavor obsessions? Soundtrack: La Vie en Rose...
