Had a cup of this last night. For whatever reason, the oiliness was offputting, when normally I quite enjoy this. Also, I wanted it thicker, and it just seemed thin and oily. Sigh. Ended up dumping most of it.

All that melted food (as in many of the Teavana blends) kind of gets to me too…

I like to overleaf this one a bit so it is thick, but I have had it thinner and I know what you mean…it is not the same.

Profile

Bio

Teaholic, with a leaning toward rooibos, green, puerh and white teas, although I’m trying some black tea again. Missing living near a tea shoppe that offers a lot of options; my only (within walking distance) choices are currently mall-bound. Still, I have a whole cupboard dedicated to tea.

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

I love tea swaps, and will gladly swap anything I have that I have enough of to share.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.

Location

Burnaby, BC, Canada
