Hey steepsterites!!! I joined a sororitea :) check out my first review here: http://sororiteasisters.com/2016/10/15/falling-leaves-fava-tea-company/
So I saw Matilda the Musical tonight and though the play was delightful, the brat sitting next to me wasn’t. I was kicked, elbowed, and even had her booster seat shoved on to my seat for a little while since she decided she didn’t want it on hers for a little bit. The kid, who was not young enough for that behaviour to be acceptable, just would not stop moving and bouncing her seat. Then, at intermission she got a Hagen Daz bar and somehow the thing ended up in her hand instead of on the stick and when I offered her a napkin she said no and proceeded to wipe her hand on the seat and our shared armrest. Add to that a guy with way too much cologne and you have my theatre experience. I have had many awesome experiences, needless to say, this wasn’t one of them.
Though, the play itself was quite great and had me channeling childhood. That had me thinking Shirley Temples. Hence Shirley Temple teapop. This tea makes for a tasty teapop, though today it is far too orange tasting to be called a Shirley Temple. The hint of grenadine is floating on top but it is playing second fiddle to the citrus notes. Oh well.
Now to tuck into bed and watch the Worst Bakers in America.
This smells like strawberry and cream but the ingriedients told me that’s probably not what I’m in for…hibiscus, rosehips, orange peels…not the sweet flavors one would expect in a strawberry cream tea. I made this as a teapop and it’s weird. Carbonated strawberry water, tart though like the fruit that isn’t totally ripe, and a slight cream flavor that is a bit artificial.
Finishing this off iced tonight. It’s weird because this doesn’t scream apple to me. It’s super sweet and actually makes me think of the candy coating on a candy apple which is basically sugar with the slightest apple flavor to it. That’s what I am getting and though it’s not bad, it’s not the fruity tea I wanted either. Nonetheless, thank you Sil for the share.
