I sipped on a cup of this while I was on the porch earlier and, I will admit, I was more concerned with the great weather than with of the taste of the tea so I’m not sure how much I really noticed. The dry leaf made me think of Peeps marshmallows… if Peeps was a gourmet dessert and not little balls of stale sugar. Creamy, sweet and with a little tang of something unidentifiable. All brewed up, the smell was a little more exotic. I could taste a bit of the hibiscus but it wasn’t overwhelming – just a faint ding of tart that brought to mind fresh berries. Of course, once the Peeps connection was made, I couldn’t get it out of my mind and I ended up thinking of gourmet raspberry Peeps. If they made gourmet raspberry Peeps. Oddly enough, I don’t think it tasted like actual raspberry or even actual Peeps but that’s what got stuck in my head. That being said, I’m not in love with this tea but I think it is more a personal taste thing than a tea thing. Because anything that reminds me of raspberry just isn’t something I’ll ever adore.

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.

1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
