I was at the distillery district today with my girlfriends, this arts/food/shopping/European/historical inspired complex and managed to grab a cup of looseleaf at the chocolate shop… it was delightful! not as bold as the description on the menu stated, but I did taste a hint of raspberry. Of course, that could be the power of suggestion because it was the merest of hints, and the description mentioned raspberry… but there was definitely something sweet about the tea, and I added no sugar.
It’s not one I would go back to repeatedly though, but it’s definitely better than Tim’s or Starbucks, which I stoop to more often than I’d like!
Bah. Next time I’ll try the darjeeling they have.
Overall, highly pleasant! just not memorable— though it may have been had I chosen to drink it bare.
(((ok truth be told, I was sad that we didn’t make it to this other cafe in the complex that I hear has a supply of Mariage Freres. I think I need to make a special trip there asap!)))
