When I’m confronted with one of those generic tea stands in an airport, tim hortons or cafe, I will always get some sort of peppermint/mint tea. I know it will be good. I know it will be refreshing, dependable mint!

It’s a Canadian holiday today, and I work in the US department so I am at work. Like all Canadian holidays. Anyways, I needed something to wake me up. I finished my McDonalds iced coffee (bad I know :( ) so this was great because mint wakes me up with no need for caffiene!

I find the green tea prominent in my cup this morning. Maybe it was the steep time or water temp but it’s definitely there. I like a little cream in my mint teas, but this one is good ol’ quality Stash so it’s just fine without. The green tea is what makes me not even want cream I think.

So there we have it! a nice mint tea for the rest of us.

Agreed! Granted, we work very closely with Denver and make up a large team here. So if we don’t work, nothing gets done and people lose money (I work in insurance) But still! No buses on a Can. stat, nothing is open for food, the cafeteria in our building is closed. Yeah. No fun. All my friends say it must be illegal and against labor laws but I assure them that it’s just as legal as the Tim Horton’s workers that make their coffee on a Can. stat lol

Bio

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.


The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!
