Got this one from a friend. The last cup I made I liked (it was Before Steepster), but I don’t know what I did that made it better! This cup is just… ugh. The licorice is a true licorice stick flavour, the spice are nice, but I am not loving the ridiculous one-note, lingering sweetness. I added 1/4 tsp of honey to try to tone it down a bit (works with stevia!), but this is another cup that’s going down the drain tonight.

(I’ve mostly stopped reviewing teas here, and also mostly stopped drinking tea. :( )

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
