I love tea. Hot, cold, with sugar or milk or honey, fruit flavored, plain and even unsweetened. About the only way I won’t drink it is with lemon. I think it’s because when I was little my grandma only had sweet tea with lemon (she was from the South – what can I say), and other than milk, juice, or coffee, tea was the drink of choice.
I have a new favorite tea…Cherry Marzipan. I was down in Nashville (Indiana – or locally known as ‘Brown County‘) a few weekends ago and my friend was telling me about this really cool tea shop called Sweetea’s. Then she proceeded to tell me about this delicious Cherry Marzipan flavored tea. Yep, she was right, it’s really good stuff. I even love just sniffing it, because It smells just like fresh cherries.
Even Dr Oz lists it as one of his favorite tea’s saying: “Tea Forté Cherry Marzipan Dessert in a mug, made from acerola cherries, toasted almonds, and raspberry leaves”.
The Cherry Marzipan tea is a loose tea made by ‘Tea Forte‘. It’s organic and Fair Trade certified. A little on the pricey end but really all things considered it’s a great value. It also lasts for a long time in it’s dried state. They have all kinds of delicious and unique flavors. Not only that, but it’s a great anti-oxidant, and good for your skin.
Sweetea’s is a tiny eclectic, off the main street little delight. They have a good variety of loose teas, single brew tea bags, tea cafe cups, and stylish teapots.They also have these drinks called ‘bubble tea’ and you can mix flavors of tea with these little ‘bubbles’ of flavored juice, they put it in your tea and serve it on ice with a really big straw (so you can suck up the flavored bubbles, they burst in your mouth to release the juice). Really, who thought this up?? I don’t know, but, it was really good, and the next time I’m in Brown County this will be the first place I stop for another ‘bubble tea’ and of course more Cherry Marzipan loose tea.
If you are ever in Brown County take time to stop and check it out. You won’t regret it.~bam
