Another tea that has seemingly gotten lost in all the other tea. Thank you for the sample, Bonnie! I know I still have a couple more from you I haven’t tried yet so I will get to them soon too!

In the bag this smells like French candy. I love the violet ones but they are pretty expensive every time I see them. http://www.amazon.com/Anis-Flavigny-Candies-France/dp/B002WZF196

It really tastes like them too. It’s very floral, but so sweet. It’s not in your face with the floral notes, and it seems like some sweetness comes from some kind of fruit also. But I seriously cannot get over how much it tastes like that candy.

It’s pretty heavily flavored stuff, definitely not for anyone who doesn’t like rose especially. As for me, I will take it and hope I don’t buy a package of it off Amazon with next semester’s books. I got a C- in the class I thought I completely failed. While I should be pretty mad I got a C- I am not, because when you’re convinced you didn’t even pass, a C- is like an A+.

And thankfully that means I will not have to do that again in the summer ever.

For some reason, my granddaughter Megan gobbles this one up like tea candy. Her mom raised the girls on lots of tea parties so the roses and flowers are nice memories. My daughter made chocolates and hand decorated sugar cubes with candied violets and such for fancy tea shops in the S.F. Bay area (I imagine her 3 daughters under the table grabbing the broken bits gleefully).
Glad you got the C- (A+) which I have jumped at over math grades myself in high school (avoided in College)!

Congrats on passing!!! I understand completely – I came out of a final one time positive I failed, and to find out that I got a mark in the mid-70s was shocking. :)
