Still here with my grandmother…

I smelled the tea leaves of Butiki Tea’s latest Oolong, attempting to savor the scent before the taste.

They smelled particularly like PEZ candies and I could almost taste it in my mouth already.

Grandma poured some in my cup and handed it to me.

The color was a fading golden-yellow, promising to be smooth and silky when I drank it.

I smelled it once more, savoring the candied and flowery smell (no wonder ‘flowery’ was in the name) and finally took the first sip.

A wide grin spread across my face.

Yay! It tasted just as deliciously as it smelled! Hallelujah!

I then added sweetener and the flavor got serious.

It was so perfectly sweet and the taste of pineapple had gotten to work!

A blast of juicy pineapple exploded in my mouth and my taste buds rejoiced as a dendritic zest zinged and zanged my tongue and then quickly disappeared as I swallowed.

Just as it had promised, the Oolong was silky and sleek when I swallowed it.

It was as if I were drinking sunlight.

Hurrah! The tea was a success! Thank Butiki Teas for creating such a flavorful experience in a cup!

I’m sensing a trend, here, with the spiny citrus.

Welcome on board! I’ve gone a bit underground these days, but it is nice to see a new author with articulate fingers!

Profile

Bio

I am the second child out of three biological girls, and the second oldest out of six children and several foster children off and on. I am a sixteen year old composer of choral pieces and orchestral, sometimes symphonic, pieces. I have a huge passion for music and creative fantasy writing; I’ve been working on a novel for six years, hopefully to be a series called “The Door to Ellm.” Though I’m not very close to finishing…

I usually try to go and hide from the vulgar masses who scream and gnash their teeth (in other words, my five little brothers).

My favorite kinds of tea are the very floral ones or the candyish cakey flavored ones~
I can appreciate earthy teas as well, although I do not prefer some of the very smokey teas.
