There’s a Teavana in the mall that one of my classes is in (I know, a legit university in a mall… so weird!), so I popped in the other day to pick some of this up for work. It’s perfect because I don’t need to stock any additives, it’s sweet but not ridiculous, and I can just leave the bits in my mug until I’ve finished drinking it.

I really like the flavour of this one, and I think it’s the lack of hibiscus that really makes this tea taste better to me than David’s Strawberry Ginger.

(The ingredients on the Teavana website are different than those on the tea page. Apple pieces, rosehip peels, apple slices, strawberry slices, strawberry pieces, marigold petals, citric acid, flavoring (strawberry, lemon, lime). Maybe they also use a different strawberry flavour… who knows.)

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 8 min or more

My son graduated from the mall last spring :)

I was supposed to actually graduate from the mountain last spring, but then I ended up having one more class that’s only offered once a year, and in addition to that I was ‘conned’ into a second degree by an adviser. :) Sweet freedom this spring!

In our case, it was high school; made necessary by a tornado that flattened the campus—temporary quarters for juniors and seniors at what used to be a Shopko.

Oh wow! That’s incredible that they managed to find space and make it work. This university was an addition to the mall, along with some office towers. Pretty interesting, as it’s quite open and the food court smells up all the classroom. I don’t deny that it was needed, as the mountain has limited building space and there were some problems with designing the expansions on the main campus, but it’s really odd taking classes in a mall.

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.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

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!
