Petals of wild poppies
After going to Morocco, I made a point of buying a tea in every country I visited while in Europe, so I was very excited to find this tisane in Florence. I think it cost me three euros at the market in the Piazza Santo Spirito. (Here's a shout-out to Gusto Panini in the same piazza, the best and cheapest place to get lunch in Florence!)
I didn't end up opening this until I got back to America the following month. Would I have brought it with me if I had? I doubt it! The liquor is a cloudy purpleish black and it tastes extremely earthy. As in, the earth. Maybe I'm just not preparing it properly? I'm keeping it around for now in hopes that I find out something that will make it magically turn delicious.
