Man, I am really enjoying Terraria again, which is kinda funny to me since when I quit last year I pretty much swore to never go back to the game. Not sure if it is my outlook that changed or if the new updates since I quit added that level of balance to the game that I felt was missing. Regardless the reason it has turned into a really distracting time sink, which is good because I am currently on hold with the whole moving thing. Hopefully in a week, maybe two, and since all my painting gear and most my tea gear is packed up, it gives me a really good outlet.

Today’s tea comes from Tea Leaf Co, specifically it is their tea Wish Upon A Star, a very pretty name that I am not really sure matches the tea, but you all know by now that I am always thinking teas and names do not blend perfectly, it is a quirk of mine! The tea is a blend of Tea (specifically some from China) Rosehips, Rose Petals, Orange Pieces, and Natural Essences, I have to admit the idea of rose and orange being blended together fills my mind with a few Persian themed deserts that I am now craving. The aroma is strong with the orange, specifically it smells like dried oranges and zest, with a touch of rosehip sourness, and a nice burst of sweet roses at the finish. If you are a rose hater, I can say that the rose does not overwhelm, it was Ben approved since usually he has to leave when I am steeping rose teas, he is sadly not a fan, but the aroma of this one did not scare him off.

Into ye ol’ steeping apparatus the leaves go! The aroma of the tea as it steeps is pretty orange-y, though once I pour off the tea and sniff the leaves themselves, the rosehips really show off. Strong sour and citrus notes waft out of the leaves, along with a delicate rose note. The liquid is quite mellow, with notes of orange and a touch of roses, with a very delicate note of distant smoke.

The tea is quite delicate, starting off with sweet and juicy notes of orange with a heady rose. Again the rose does not overwhelm, it is not like sitting in a rose garden, more like sitting next to a single cut rose. This moves to a slight sourness from the rosehips and finished with gentle honey sweetness. This tea is rather refreshing, a great summer time tea, I wish the green tea notes would have been stronger, but the orange and rose blended quite well for a seasonally appropriate sip.
