Yet another tea I had forgotten I had. Actually, thought I was out of it. Nope, I’m not! I have almost half a tin left. Yay!

Because it has been a while since I’ve had it and it is possible my tastes have changed some since the last time I had it (in July), I’m going to treat this like a new tea.

First off, the sprinkles are fun. I’m easily distracted by shiny and sprinkles are close enough to bring me great joy. As it is brewing, I get a big time vanilla icing smell. Mmm. Icing. Normally I’d add a sugar and a splash of milk to my flavored/dessert teas (seems to me to help the flavors show up and be, you know, dessert-y) but I am milk-less today. Boo.

Mmm, this is good though. Sweet (yay sprinkles!) and tastes pretty similar to how it smells. It’s not exactly a well developed tea or anything. No peppery notes or sweet hay tail or hints of raisins. It’s a vanilla cupcake tea. Correction: it’s a GOOD vanilla cupcake tea. But dessert teas have their place in my pantry and I think this is probably in my top 5.

Now I want cupcakes. I haven’t had a cupcake in a while and oh, but there are a lot of cupcake places around here. Might be time to make a cupcake crawl…

As I’m reading this, I am so hoping that the dining hall has cake today. Caaaakkeee. Caaaake. (Zombie wail)
I really like the idea of sprinkles in a tea, sound so perky!

Cupcakes are a great way to start (or end or really have any time during) the day!

The sprinkles are fun and cute. They make me smile. :) See?

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
