Listening to: Amanda Palmer- Astronaut (A Short History of Nearly Nothing)
Had another tea tasting with History Laced and this was something she ordered online.
Observation 1: My boyfriend prepared this tea for me. This tea was steeped in boiling water loose for 5 minutes. The blend has an aroma that reminds me greatly of cinnamon.
Observation 2: Naked, this tea tastes just like cinnamon with a hint of sweetness.
Observation 3: Skimpily clad (with sugar) This tea gets very sweet and the cinnamon seems to stand out more. I don’t taste any marshmallow.
Observation 4: Robed (with milk) alot is taken away from the taste.
Observation 5: Fully dressed (with sugar and milk) the taste is again detracted from, but I get a better sense of where they were trying to get the marshmallow flavor from.
Overall: I don’t taste any marshmallow, but I imagine marshmallow is difficult to replicate. For what it is, I think its a very weakly flavored cinnamon tea for my preferences. If I’m looking for a cinnamon tea, I would go for Cinnamon Vanilla by Stash Teas instead.
Boyfriend remarks: It was okay; nothing to write home about.
