drank Coconut Baozhong by Queen Mary
512 tasting notes

I grabbed a pouch of this after my morning tea at the Queen Mary Tea room in Seattle. (I have also reviewed the tea room itself in Places) They blend some of their teas and some they buy blended already. I’m not sure which this is.

I like it. It seems to be a light oolong. Medium nuttiness with a decent coconut taste. Some might find it a bit fakey, but I actually find it mellow and fairly pleasant. A bit of sweetness in the background.

Oh exciting! Hope you’re enjoying your time in Seattle!

I did, very much! Though we spent more time in Washington state than in Seattle proper… the husband seems to feel that if he hasn’t driven over 1000 miles it isn’t a vacation. :) I’ll have to go back by myself and spend time just in Seattle next time. I feel I missed some tea places…

When my boyfriend and I visited Washington, we were mostly on Mt. Rainier and our hotel was in Seattle but I didn’t get to see much of the city either. Thats ok though because we’re actually moving there soon!!! :D

We were mostly in Olympic Park, but we went all over. I don’t think I could live in Seattle proper, but I love the smaller towns. Not sure I can do lots of snow so I wouldn’t want to get too far from the coast, but the area is just gorgeous! Congrats on the move, how exciting!!

And it isn’t tea, but definitely check out Chocolopolis in the Queen Anne district if you like quality chocolate and hot chocolate!

Oh wow the Olympic forest? I cannot WAIT to get there too. And thank you! I don’t believe it yet honestly.
And thanks for the tip, that chocolate place sounds good!

I’ve enjoyed the travelogue! My husband wants me to ask about the concert. Enjoy?

Nicole

The concert was awesome. They were unchanged. Geddy took it easy on his voice for the first couple of older songs but then he cut loose on the new stuff. Alex was just on fire all night and Peart was his usual Jedi Master. :) 40 years and they still draw new fans – there were high school and college kids there. Amazing.

Tea afficianado. I wish I could make a living creating and serving tea parties, but alas, bills prevent that possibility. :) So I make do by catering tea parties for friends and co-workers and drinking tons of tea with my cats on my lap. :)
