Episode 299: Spiced Thai

While in DC last week, I had the chance to have lunch at &pizza, a hip, fast-casual pizza chain in the DMV area with 14 locations. I picked up two teas there, and here’s the first one — spiced thai.

The ingredients aren’t really spelled out, but I could make out lemongrass and cardamom with a nice black tea base. It’s lightly sweetened so the floral cardamom and the zing of the lemongrass really shine through. And look at that cool label design!

Episode 308: Sweet Mint

&pizza’s Sweet Mint is the second tea offering I tried on my recent work trip to Washington DC. Mint teas are a dime a dozen, but what makes this particular one a bit special is the brewing method.

The sweetener was added to the brewing time for the tea, so you get these nice little notes of caramel as an aftertaste, and they provide an interesting contrast to the cool, sharp mint. Cane sugar is also added to bring everything together, but not make the resulting brew too sweet. Try it with the Moonstruck pizza!
