Sample 4!

After the smokiness of Jackee Muntz this morning, I felt the need for something with some sweetness, and this sounded good to me. I was a bit worried about the strength of the licorice taste, but I do like licorice. I just wasn’t sure I’d like drinking it. :P

The leaves smelled nice and licoricey and sweet, and perfect for the mood I was in.

Thankfully, the tea itself had just a hint of licorice flavor combined with an overall freshness and sweetness.

This kind of tastes like pizzelle with anise, but a bit less bakey. :P I like!

This isn’t a tea I would drink regularly, but it’s great for today! :)

Ooooh pizzelle!!!! Now I’m not so afraid of this tea :)

Yay! I’m happy to hear that. :) And now I’m craving pizzelle. :P

I got my grandmother’s pizzelle iron when she died but it was already rusted from not being used for a few years. Once I master her ravioli (ravioli – 2, JacquelineM – 0!), I will have to get a pizzelle iron so I can make her pizzelles! They were so good and I miss them.

Ooo raviolis! Yeah, they’re hard. :( My mom’s got a pasta roller attachment for her mixer that we’ve had success with, though. That and LOTS of flour so the dough doesn’t stick to everything in sight are our keys to ravioli success. (My great grandmother’s awesome, awesome recipe! So much work, but sooo worth it.) Pizzelles can be a pain too, but also worth it, and it’s been a while since I’ve had them, so I miss them too!!

I blame half of my tea obsession on Japan and the time I spent there in a study abroad program. Tea is everywhere in Japan, and I drank it daily while staying with my host family. When I came back home, I found myself craving it!

The other half of my tea obsession I blame on my job as a barista at Borders, where we serve Tazo loose leaf teas. I hadn’t even considered loose leaf teas a possibility until I started working there! The freshness and the difference in quality really turned me on to loose leaf teas.

So bit by bit, I’ve been increasing my tea self-education, and I drink tea at least once a day. I love trying new kinds, and unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), the more I learn, the more I want to try!

In addition to tea, I also enjoy books and music. If you would like, look for me on last.fm (user: giragirataiyou) or Goodreads (user: thexquietxlife). :)
