Continuing with the samples from The Tea Merchant, this is finally cooled off. SO worth the wait, this is so perfect as an iced tea!
First, it tastes like there’s far more white peony in this blend, despite the Darjeeling being the first ingredient on the list. It’s very sweet, tastes like hay with just a little floral note to it. Then it resembles something like a white wine, possibly a Chardonnay, and fades into the nutty, astringent taste I’ve come to love from Darjeeling.
What a cool tea! And it’s so pretty too before it steeps. Lots of fluffy leaves, and pretty rose petals.
I can’t wait to try the others, and I wish I had more to say but I’m so wiped out from today. II didn’t even have a chance to eat lunch until 5pm because I had to spend so long at my specific college’s advisement office. Since they moved social work and criminal justice to the college (it used to just be economics & public policy), it’s a lot more difficult to talk to anyone. My advisor sure as hell wasn’t familiar with the econ courses at all…it really irked me because she was telling me my courseload is heavy yet she did not know what one of my classes even was, not to mention I had already been to half the classes at this point and knew what I would be up against. Also I’m a senior, everything I have left is higher division stuff…what did she want me to take? Jeez.
Thankfully the overall advisement office where I had to return the form was empty…it was weird. I was expecting a long wait there! Who knew. But I’ve switched classes and hopefully there will be no problems with missing a day for travel to a wedding.
Now I sleep because that switched class is at 9:30 and I’ve grown far too accustomed to ones that start at 11!
