I tasted the plain liquid in my mug.

Was it…caramel?

What did I taste?

It was…vanilla? cream?

What was it…licorice? Yes.

And what else….flowers?

Yes It was like drinking nectar from…what kind of flower…

Honey Suckles, like the ones back home in California…yet these suckles were made with licorice…

Red or Black…black licorice for sure…

Sweet and cream were added.

What was it…Creamy? Caramely?

It was…light…bright…yet heavy like twilight…

What was that flavor…Licorice? flowers? creamy caramel? All of the above, I think.

The flavors were wet and heavy in my mouth with an aftertaste of…cream? No…more like melted caramel…

It was like laying in a pasture of colorful flowers, petals tickling my nose and scattering over my body…The aroma of nectar…The hum of bees over my head…A gentle breeze…

Then I swallowed.

Everything vanished.

I took another sip…

I was back in that pasture, full of delight.

I swallowed and it vanished again.

I had no choice but to keep sipping away at the sweet liquid until it was gone…

This tea was very calming and just perfect for a boring and hazy night on the couch all alone.

I am the second child out of three biological girls, and the second oldest out of six children and several foster children off and on. I am a sixteen year old composer of choral pieces and orchestral, sometimes symphonic, pieces. I have a huge passion for music and creative fantasy writing; I’ve been working on a novel for six years, hopefully to be a series called “The Door to Ellm.” Though I’m not very close to finishing…

I usually try to go and hide from the vulgar masses who scream and gnash their teeth (in other words, my five little brothers).

My favorite kinds of tea are the very floral ones or the candyish cakey flavored ones~
I can appreciate earthy teas as well, although I do not prefer some of the very smokey teas.
