drank Florence by Harney & Sons
80 tasting notes

Tonight is probably not the best evening to even begin compairing or complaining of tea. It is a zombie night and I am enjoying the sound of rain and a dark and delicious cup, or two, of chocolate teas.
Florence is my second variant tonight and sadly, I like it best.
The black tea is exquisite and I would swear it is a milk chocolate I taste. Generally I dislike most chocolate and milk chocolate just plain creeps-me-out. Who knows why but I enjoy baking with it. Ask me to make a chocolate cake and it’s all yours. Pour me a cup of this tea and just try to pull it away… you’ve got yourself a fight!
This tea was well worth the drive to Seattle to pick up… yes, and even the crowds of touristy shoppers. :)

“Florence is my second variant tonight and sadly, I like it best.” – Hmm, am I missing something here or does that sound like you were disappointed with Florence. But then later you sound like you love it “Pour me a cup of this tea and just try to pull it away… you’ve got yourself a fight!”

It’s a delicious tea, must be the hazelnut blended into it. Nutella, yum.

Love hazelnuts and I have a fabulous pound cake recipe. And yes, I honestly liked the tea. As it cooled it went perfectly with Mansfield Park and my daydreams of Edmund. :) I was a bit upset to start off as I had just had a cup of MF chocolat and wasn’t exactly wow’ed. Guess I was just stumped by a sub-par MF. Then I didn’t give that tea a real try. I tossed it in my tumbler and went uniform shopping… never a good combo. LOL

Ricky

Pound cake, yum, sounds delicious. Chocolate pound cake? Now have you tried making it with matcha instead? ;)

I have to start diving into the rest of your MF tea. Maybe, I’ll bring some to work tomorrow. Jealous of your freedom, when do you return to the seas?

Alicia

Soon… :(

I still report to the ship daily. I go in at 0500 and leave, if lucky, around 1500 or there after. Work is surrounded by the most beautiful mountains still wrapped in snow. One afternoon while working aloft, I watched a bald eagle soar overhead. I’d never seen one out of the zoo or not on the Discovery channel. :)

Haha, if only you could bring a camera aboard, then you can start messing with photography =P, if you haven’t already. Seems you get to see a lot of nice scenery. Hey, tea and photography goes well together =P

Alicia

I was officially voted Command photographer today. Wish came true.

Ricky

Ohhhh, congrats! Now you can start taking photos of the nice scenery.

Ricky

Hey, that’s not a snow scene!
