drank Steeped Tea by Tim Hortons
171 tasting notes

I left my favourite timolino at work the other day and needed a tea fix on the way. I used to drink this ALL the time, might as well have just hooked me up to an IV. However, this time around all I tasted was hot paper. I finished it, only because I told myself it was all in my head. People at work laughed at me when I told them I had one, they didn’t believe me.

I know what you mean by hot paper! I always described it as cardboard. I can’t tell if it’s the tea or the paper cup that I’m tasting. Not exactly the healthiest, but I find it’s not as bad as a double double. But even then, yeah, cardboard. I wonder what it would taste like if you ordered it to stay in a mug.

I’m not sure. . . I’ve never had this problem with TAZO at starbucks, or a to go cup at DT. I think it’s just a low quality tea. It’d be interesting to try it out though!

Bio

There are few things in life that I enjoy more than a good cup of tea and the company of my dogs.
I’m a down to earth person very true to my Virgo roots. I own two Boxers, Octane (male, 6 years) and Rally Rims (female, 3 years). I do not breed or show, they are an integral part of my family. I also have a loving husband in the Canadian Military and a beautiful daughter who amazes me with her wit and intelligence everyday.
I love Autumn, for it’s colour, smell and general ambiance.
I’m just a girl, looking for a good cup of tea.
