I bought this tea while my husband wasn’t looking. The Savannah Tea Room adjoins an independent bookstore; and to this day, we don’t talk about the financial carnage that combination brought.
I imagine that most of our paired-off Sisters and readers know what I’m talking about here. Every partnership has a few Off-Topic Subjects, usually involving exes, but other times involving How Much Tea Is In The House. (To quote the Natalie Portman rap: “I never said I was a role model.”)
This blend was a great buy, and I refuse to regret it. Its primary flavors are pineapple and quince (a sort of plum/pear flavor). It rounds out with orange and thistle (which I’m not sure I detect). The flavor’s a little bit sweet, a little bit sour, mostly tropical.
If you’re ever in Savannah, Georgia, I recommend checking out the Savannah Tea Room . You can buy books there, too! As an added bonus: you remember the experience very clearly later when you get your credit card bill.
Here’s the scoop!
