I pretty much adore this tea but I think that it is kind of odd that I do. It smells so sweet! Like little-ball-of-marzipan-candy sweet. And the taste! It’s a light, sweet, floral and slightly earthy tea with faint notes of wood or nuts and then a lovely sweet floral poof at the end and then a chaser of marzipan that can in no way be natural but I still luf it muchly. Just thinking of this tea gives me the urge to sprinkle glitter and candied flowers over everything and dance around a garden in a white gauzy dress.

(The second steep (also at 3min) is my favorite. The marzipan and flowers thing doesn’t change (if anything it may be a little sweeter), it just smoothes out a little compared to steep number one. I still need the glitter, candied flowers, garden and dress to really set the mood.)

Don’t ask me why, I just had a flashback to Wizard of Oz’s Glinda the good witch! The mind works in mysterious ways…! :) But having fun.

There you go, then! I wasn’t too far off with my imagery after reading this lovely post!

Though of course, nothing would top a photo (on Flickr steepster group maybe) with Auggy dancing and twirling dressed up in a gauzy dress with flowers galore and glitter sparkling everywhere … hint hint hint, Auggy!

Auggy

Hah! Well, if I had gauzy dress, glitter and flowers, I might do something like that but I lack all of these things so everyone is out of luck! :P

SoccerMom

Hahaha okay Auggy we will let you off the hook for NOW, but for Halloween we want the photo Lauren described posted on Flicker. In other words you already know what you are going to be for Halloween! ;)

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.
