My luck hasn’t improved by much, I rolled a two today. Feeling a little glum about that :( But at least there is only a single package left rated 1 (yes, there were two 1 packages in the box), so I can either roll that tomorrow, or something higher. Three cheers to a high roller tomorrow.

Oh, and here’s a link to a picture I took of the fancy decorated little tea packages I received for Geek Pride day!

Tonights tea is a white tea, full of beautiful miniature rosebuds that are highly fragranced. This artificial rose scent reminds me of how my grandma’s house always smelled. Especially her bathroom, as she had rose scented soap, bubble bath and the works in her bathroom. Ah, the happy childhood memories.

Surprisingly the wet leaves tone down the rosaroma and create a softer bouquet that is easier on the palate. The tea is quite calm, and floral, as one would imagine, but surprisingly, the rose tastes quite awesome! It’s not soapy, it’s not like anything earthy, it’s not sweet. I don’t have words to describe this other than I can smell and “taste” the roses within this tea. I am quite enjoying this. It would be a fine tea to serve to lunching ladies, or an afternoon tea for a queen. Phew, I thought this “2” tea might be quite awful, but I’m quite enjoying it’s relaxing and calming qualities. I wonder if my breath will smell like roses? Thanks Rabs for this purely relaxing tea.

Oh lordy, I’m so sorry about the low rolls! I’m glad that this one pulled it out in the end and wasn’t anything like the Tangerine Ginger. At least you’re almost through all the lowest numbers :)

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
