I’ve been away from Steepster for a while. Just wasn’t enjoying hot tea much over the summer. And I was buying too much, but when I stopped shopping….well, a big part of the fun is shopping, ordering, trying new teas…..

Anyways, cool weather, and back on tea…..I love anything mint, peppermint, spearmint, I have peppermint candles, peppermint chocolate patties ( in the freezer-extra good!)…..made a big mug of this spearmint tea…..added in frothy cream and a hammonds peppermint stir stick…..yum! I am not sure i can fairly rate this tea,with all the extra mint, sugar and cream I added…..but it’s good like this! Cool, creamy, sweet! I have had it plain, and it is a good pure spearmint…..but quite a treat with all my extra “add ins!”….

I almost bought some harneys peppermint herbal at chapters today…..wish I had…..then I could compare these two mint teas…..well another day tomorrow….

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, I drink their raspberry herbal iced tea all the time. I realize I waited too long to try out Butiki teas and have loved every single one of their teas I have tried, especially the black tea blends. I wish they were sticking around – I anticipate trying to build a serious stash of their teas before they close up shop forever.

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.
