drank Princess Tea Party by Adagio Teas
902 tasting notes

Another blend from Rachel, by Rachel! Thank you so much for sending me so many great teas to try!

So…I was never a girly-girl growing up. I didn’t have tea parties, or play with dolls, or want to wear dresses. I pretty much just wanted to read books and dig for dinosaurs (and, yes, I did have an excavation going on at the playground across from my house…complete with markers to section off the different digs). Yes, I was a geek, and still am.

So the name of this ever so slightly grates on me, and reminds me of forced play dates with other girls my age who wanted me to wear pink and walk around in their mother’s heels for fun.

But the taste is really good, all strawberry and vanilla. The rooibos isn’t woodsy at all, which is really nice. I can definitely see serving this up to my pseudo-niece at her next “Fancy Nancy” party. But for now, I’ll just enjoy it whilst watching a show about the Mayan 2012 prophecies. Nagana had princesses, right?

I wasn’t a girly girl either – but I wasn’t a tomboy. I hated dolls, liked to draw and read, and did have tea parties – with my dog! I thought the kids up my street were either silly or savages and didn’t like to play with any of them! My absolute best friend was my dog. I’m exactly the same way grown up, too! :)

I wasn’t a girly girl either and my daughter is a combination so I made this for her.

Jaime, I galloped everywhere because I was horse crazy! I wore Dingo boots (remember those, or are you too young?) with maxi’s. But give me a china cup of something like Marco Polo and my pinkie goes right on up in the air! And yes, I am a total geek. I love science and was late getting out of the shower because I was figuring why the upside down shampoo bottle didn’t fall because of the shift in its center of gravity when I increassed the angle of the hypotenuse side by moving it further away from the right angle formed by the base of the shower niche and the wall….

Oh, and even though I was already a performing musician, I told everyone I wanted to be an archaeologist, so I am right there with you on that dig – sounds like fun! So you can be a bit of everything, and like all of it!

Haha, I was the same way when I was little! I used to LOVE dinosaurs and even had a dinosaur themed birthday party at least once. I remember searching for fossils on the rocks during recess sometimes… And one time I found a little one on this big rock. It was too heavy to move so I was really disappointed because I wanted to keep it, but it was really cool! Lol.

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
