Day 11 and my second day in double digits. It’s closer to two weeks since I started the calendar and still I feel excited each morning to see it’s contents.
Today I open the door to reveal…
Day 11 – Strawberry Lemonade
Ingredients: Hibiscus, rosehip, apple, lemon, orange, strawberry, elderberry, sunflower petals, flavour
Steeping Parameters: Boiling Water for 3-4 minutes
I can taste the strawberry which has a jam like quality in terms of flavour, thickness and sweetness but it’s also a little tart and sour with the lemon and hibiscus coming through. It lightens up however in the after taste and it’s sweetness increases.
As it cools the hibiscus becomes stronger and over takes most of the lemon flavour to make it more strawberry hibiscus jam like than strawberry lemonade.
Another day down yet I look forward to tomorrow. Day 12, my favourite number!
Join me tomorrow to see what surprise awaits.
