So, I got a “teazer” sampler pack of this, which I think is the only option for purchase at herbal republic other than buying a full tin/big bag (100 gram minimum? Unless you get the teazers, I think.) Not sure, as I only dashed in there on lunch break, not much time to chatter. It was about 5+ tablespoons in the sample teazer pack.

I think I have been using too little tea in my iced blends so I dumped the whole teazer into my takeya, steeped for about ?10 mins in boiling water then added cold water and ice to make about 1.5 – 1.75 litres, then chilled in the fridge. I even tossed in some frozen berries to the mix.

Having a big glass now over ice with a tiny bit of Sonoma simple syrup. It’s good. Very fruity, very berry, very juicey. The more I drink it the more I like it. I think I taste more sweet strawberry, than tart berry, but it is nice. Will definitely go back for a tin ( or bag, however they sell it ) and add this one to my summer iced tea rotation!

They will sell my weight if you bring in a tin, as far as I’m aware. Or you can get the bags on the shelf. I need to refill my tin this week. Totally out. I usually use 2 tbsp per litre of finished iced tea, so what you did sounds really good. :)

Err. By weight. I don’t think there’s enough tea in the store to sell my weight of it. ;)

LOLOL….you must LOVe that tea if your buying your weight! ( I am sure you are a fine weight, but it’s still a lot of tea!)……what do you want to bet there is someone who has done that on steepster?….."er, yes….I’d like about 140 lbs of that fruity tea…..yes, I have, 400 tins with me…..what? ….I don’t have a problem, just stocking up!) …..lol….
( Well, if you do buy your weight…..leave a little in the store for me? )

OMGsrsly

Haha! I will try! :)

Made a full takeya pitcher of this today, iced with some frozen berries added. Yum – so good and refreshing. Kicking my rating up and tempted to make another pitcher right now…..so berry tasty!

OMGsrsly

I’m drinking this one right now too, and I’m also researching how much “other stuff” I need to put into it in order to get my Zoku pop maker to release the finished product. :)

Now I want a Nana’s Berry Garden zoku Popsicle too….

Bio

Vancouver born, and love the city. Fairly new to tea, I found Davids Tea in early 2013 and that is where everything started. So far, my favourites are flavoured black teas, I am on a serious hunt for the perfect black caramel. I also like fruit herbals and tisanes. So far, I have mixed and limited experience with white tea and oolongs – the jury is still out. I don’t like green tea; maybe that will change.

I have tried most of the Vancouver area shops, David’s, Murchies, Granville Island Tea, UTM, and more. Just starting to branch out and order on-line. My initial experiences with Harney&Sons have been great, and I look forward to trying out many other tea brands.

I work as a research nurse, with cancer patients. Sometimes stressful but rewarding work and tea is a nice break for me. I love my cat ( that’s Lily) shopping, candles, lush baths, reading, cooking, home reno stuff and going for a relaxing massage. I like checking out new tea shops and learning more about tea. I try to go to the gym and swim when not working or drinking tea.
