St. Petersburg’s Winter Palace was commissioned by Catherine the Great and built between 1754 and 1762.  As it goes, the architect that was charged with designing the opulent structure, with its 1,786 doors and 1,945 windows, was an Italian named Francesco Bartolomeo Rastrelli.  Rastrelli, knowing nothing of Russia or Catherine the Great, naturally wanted to bring the comforts of home with him to his new city, which included the sweet taste of Marzipan. Unbeknownst to Rastrelli his patron, Catherine the Great, was also a lover of Marzipan...and also a great lover of men-folk.  One day while casually enjoying a papaya shaped piece of Marzipan after lunch, Catherine spotted him in the hall.  It was love at first sight.  Rastrelli offered her some of his dessert, Catherine acquiesced and offered him…well…we can’t go there.  In the end, the Winter  Palace was completed a little behind schedule perhaps, but at least the architect had a smile on his face. To celebrate the fortuitous nature of this historical meeting we’ve blended this fantastic herbal tea with Rooibos, almond pieces, dried papaya and natural flavors.  Enjoy the almond-like flavors of love.
