Mulholland Maple Magic
This weekend we spent some time indoors with friends and family testing out some more recipes using NYA TEA. What's the best part of food on the weekends? BRUNCH! It's never too early, too late and you can cook any cuisine. Brunch is so adaptable, because there just aren't any rules around it, which we love. We made American pancakes and infused maple syrup with our Mulholland tea. The pancakes were airy, moist, and buttery and with the syrup there was a hint of sweetness and the complex nutty aroma of the Mulholland tea. Pretty perfect if you ask us. Try it out at your next brunch and let us know what you think.
