A big THANK YOU to RICKY for sending this tea sample to me. I was really suprised as I wasn’t expecting him to send me any more teas. I was even more thrilled when I opened the package and it was sample of Marco Polo, which I have been wanting to try forever.

Upon sampling this tea and its yummy strawberry goodness, it erased any yucky memories of the overly salty crawfish that I had earlier at dinner. To me, this is a guiless, childish tea- reminding me of Frankenberry cereal or jujubees or jolly ranchers….

Unlike most other French blends I have sampled, this one is not some frilly perfumy, hot-mess, but a solid, true, and not really sophisticated strawberry flavor.

Bio

Just a few months ago the only tea I drank was hot lipton tea at work, an occasional mint tea, and sweet iced tea.. Then my daughter got me some loose leaf teas for Christmas and then, my tea addiction began…..

And what better way to get lots of dessert flavors w/o the calories?

I prefer my tea with a tinge of sugar. Is that cheating? But to me , the combination of sugar and tea is like salt and cooking- both bring out the natural flavors.

My tea drinking has evolved into a set routine: a breakfast blend in the AM, some flavored blacks during the day, late afternoon or evening flavored green/white, herbal (usually spicy, chai inspired) at night.

Not into unflavored greens/whites yet. Just started appreciating unflavored blacks and am thinking that smoky teas may become my favorite…
When I am not drinking tea, I am working as an engineer, reading, watching some of the better TV shows (like Damages and Breaking Bad), practicing my yoga, cooking, gardening, and spoiling my two miniature poodles (Coco and Timmy)…
