Marzipan…wouldn’t that be a good name for a gold-and-white cat?

This was also a little surprise from Ashmanra. I proceeded extremely cautiously this morning, because I’ve had many almond teas that go bitter very easily. So I pulled it at 3 minutes (recommendation was 2—4) and ended up with a very mild, sweet, drinkable dessert tea. The marzipan/pastry character and scent is detectible, but faint enough I think we can add that extra minute when I try again.

I like this, and it is a almost local! About an hour and fifteen minutes away but we go to Raleigh a bit for this and that anyhow. They used to carry only Teaschwendner but now they source from different places.

I remember seeing the name in some of your older reviews. We’re doing better regionally with really good shops just one hour or two hours away…oh, for one in town!
