When I travel I have a trifecta of things I must acquire; tea, cupcakes, and jewelry. This last trip, I only got the tea but, then again, I was a wee bit preoccupied with meeting and cooing over my new niece.

After being somewhat disappointed in the tea options in the Minneapolis area I stumbled upon Mrs. Kelly’s tea at the farmer’s market and decided to branch out a bit from my normal dessert tea and try this, a white tea, and a green (which you can see from my tasting logs are rare for me). I’m glad I did. I haven’t found a ton of fruity black teas that I like but this renews my faith in fruity black teas. It’s got a really nice balance between the fruit, the tea, and the vanilla and cinnamon, and, most importantly, the fruit flavors aren’t artificial and gross.

Happy I have family in Minneapolis who can bring me more of this.

LOL your must acquire list looks a lot like mine. Tea – check! Cupcakes – Check! but instead of jewelry, I’d probably put PAPER! – check! (I’m an artist, and I have a thing for paper. Not just any paper… but the fine, artisan quality paper that you get at specialty paper stores. I can spend hours in those stores, just touching the paper and murmuring happy sounds.

Hahaha it’s so funny to find more people have to get tea and cupcakes too…my third item though is shoes. I seem to only buy them away from home.

Hello!
I’m Amanda, and I’m new to the world of tea. I got sucked in by a sample at Teavana and have been exploring ever since. I prefer loose tea but will slum it with the occasional, high quality bag.

I live just outside Chicago with my husband and our dog.
