drank Rose Marzipan by Sands Of Thyme
4221 tasting notes

Finishing off the last of this sample that was sent to me with my order. I really like this blend.

Today I am getting more of the cardamom flavor, and I am getting a cinnamon note as well, although the ingredients do not list cinnamon as an ingredient.

This is yum!

Any chance that you know if this is similar to the discontinued Teavana Rose Marzipan?

I cannot remember if I’ve had the Rose Marzipan from Teavana. Based on the description of it here on Steepster, I would say no, this one is not the same.

No…this isn’t the same…the main difference is that Teavana’s has those crystallized sugar cubes…this one doesn’t…but it’s still lovely! :) Minus the sugar that is…

TeaEqualsBliss

Actually…it’s the “sweet candied violet pieces” I was thinking of – see above…

Auggy

Ah yes, I forgot about the violet. Darn!

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

*

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
