drank Shanghai Orchid by Teavana
1195 tasting notes

I have really not felt like writing anything which is a problem when one has a final paper due Tuesday. I finally decided on a topic last night, and it all has to do with beer. I am AMAZED at the level of data one can find out there for this stuff. I’m going by political cultures of states to see if that affects the amount of beer consumed per person, the number of DUIs and underaged drinkers (both of these I figure will be lowest in moralistic states), and if restrictive alcohol laws stifle the economic impact of beer (which I figure will be higher in traditionalistic states). I think that I can make this 8-10 pages. YAY.

So I love orchids a lot but I don’t think I’ve ever had anything orchid flavored. It seems rather unusual. I was worried it might be too perfumey, but I was going to make it iced and take it with me to class so I wasn’t too worried.

It was actually really good. The floral notes are strong, but the apple and other fruit in here adds a welcome bit of sweetness.

This is another one of those where it really doesn’t even matter if there is white tea underneath it all. Super strong flavors and so much fruit just dominates. The hibiscus though is not there at all, I feel like the only thing it did was add a pretty rosy hue to the tea.

Sounds like a very interesting paper.

That’s actually a really cool paper topic. Based strictly on personal observation (no scientific data fo’ me!), I would bet that the more Christian state of Georgia has a higher rate of DUI than the less theistic states of Massachusetts, RI, and maybe even New Hampshire. I’d maybe even venture to say that Red states have a higher percentage of beer consumption than many blue states. I’d be curious as to what you uncover!

I’m having to keep working on it because it’s supposed to have to do with state reforms so pretty much it all has to relate back to laws states have and doing all the states is going to be problematic haha.
