Story, Folklore, History
The origins of dulce de leche are not quite known, but it is said to have originated in Argentina in 1829. In the midst of a war, generals from each side decided to meet and end the war. General Manuel de Rosas was not at his tent when General Lavalle arrived from the opposing side. Genereal Lavalle was tired, and lay down to sleep in the tent of General de Rosas. A woman nearby was preparing la lechada, a sugary milk, for the camp. When she went to go tell General de Rosas and saw the enemy in his tent, she ran to get soldiers as she was unaware of the intended treaty. General de Rosas arrived just in time to prevent the soldiers from disurbing the sleeping General Lavalle. By the time the woman remembered la lechada cooking it had already become a thick dark brown substance. A brave soldier tried out the jelly and found the taste to be amazing. And so dulce de leche was born.
Good but not amazing,
This tea is amazing! It smells and tastes like a cinnamon bun!! It has enough natural sweetness that I was just about finished it before I realized I hadn’t added any sweetener, but it’s not overpowering.
LOVE this tea - such a treat anytime of the day, especially as the days get colder.
Tried this with a friend. It’s sweet without being overpowering. Definitely one of my favorites!
Tried this tea for the first time. It is truly lovely, warm and sweet and just a touch spicy. Great for fall and winter sipping.
This tea is unreal. It is SO delicious: warm, rich, sweet and comforting. One of the best teas I have ever had!
So glad it’s back this fall!
