Apples and Molasses Black Tea is a blend of black tea, apple bits, spices, cloves and molasses flavor. This blend is from Della Terra Teas, online seller of fun tea blends. Della Terra Teas is based in Pennsylvania. I love molasses in baking, which I know is a little weird as I know many people avoid recipes with molasses. I find it adds an excellent richness and the best ginger cookies! A weird cultural shift from being a Canadian living in California is that molasses seems less popular here – when I need it for baking it is much harder for … Continue reading, hoot!

As soon as I moved to … Continue reading, hoot!
