This was included with a swap from Jes. Yay! Erm, but is it ok if I don’t like it? :)

This tea and I don’t get along very well. It smells kinda like warm pink jello, playdough, or plastic and tastes… pink. Don’t really know how to describe it. I saw the bergamot, so I was not expecting to love the tea anyway, as I was prepping for something kinda like an Earl Grey. The smell is powerful, but once I got past the nose it was a much milder candy sweetness, like a pink starburst, and it tasted far less fake and plastic-y than it smelled. Tried adding a tiny bit of sugar about halfway through the cup. Ooops. I liked it less then. Glad I got a chance to try this, and equally glad it was a sample and I didn’t buy a whole tin! (Which I might’ve if I’d seen it first because they are beautiful!)

Was it Paris Hilton inspired tea maybe rather than Paris the city? Ewww Paris Hilton in a cup… yep, that’s exactly what it sounds like you described.

Hello, as you may have guessed, I am not really Londo Mollari. Apologies for the deception. I am Melissa.

In addition to my teas, I am a bit of a foodie, have an undying love for red wine and am lucky enough to have all the restaurants of DC and several VA wineries within a lazy reach of home. I have an ever-expanding orchid obsession and I have been known to talk to them. It helps.

To be honest, Tea went from being an interest to a bit of an obsession fairly recently for me – since I quit smoking. Tasting things is amazing, who knew?! Though a nice cuppa now replaces a much worse addiction, I spend FAR more money on this than I ever did on cigarettes.

I have loved tea ever since I was small, probably too small, visiting on the farm in Nebraska and drinking all my grandmother’s sun tea. I still prefer now what I liked then, watching tea slowly stain eddies of water, tasting nature.
