Saskatoon!! Yeaaah! :D

Kittenna

Also, I assume the numerical rating was unintentional and/or someone different posted this sneak peek? You probably want to remove it before there’s a backlash :)

Daniel Scott

Yeah, oops to the rating. You might want to delete this note and re-post it. Also, LOL @ “classic brown tea color.” Not that we don’t all know what it means, but it sounds funny. :P

And yeah, Saskatoon berries! My family is all from Saskatoon (although we’re not there now), and I might even be able to sell them on this one.

Kittenna

Saskatoon’s my hometown :D :D And the rating is easily removed by editing the post and clicking the little ‘x’ next to the rating scale.

Daniel Scott

Oooh, didn’t know that, thanks!

DAVIDsTEA

All fixed!

DaisyChubb

mmmm Saskatoon Berries. Now I get a taste of home all the way here in Halifax – can’t wait!
