This on the island of Ischia, in the northern half of the Bay of Naples, Italy. My husband's grandfather was from this lovely place.
Today's tea choice is another sample - Raspberry Tart from Teas Etc.
It smelled divine in the package, very raspberryish with perhaps a hint of chocolate and a whiff of good fresh tea. I brewed it up and it still smelled fine, with perhaps a touch of astingency from the tea. The liquor was a nice medium red-brown. However, the taste was not to my liking. Tasted of raspberries with a hint of chocolate, but I just didn't like it. I added a small bit of sugar to it and that just made it worse. I will say the quality of the tea is quite good.
Oh well, I should remember I am not a big fruity fan, but raspberries are my favorite summer fruit. Sigh.
News flash! Bert, the bratty kitten, just swilled down a bunch of this tea. Two kittens who like tea is two much!!
Oh my goodness, I won Teaviews August $100 shopping spree! So I happily went to Teavana's site and drooled over what I might get. Woo hoo! Everyone who signs up for Teaviews newsletter is entered. So you at least get a nice newsletter out of the deal.
