Hmm. I was hoping this would taste more like those instant coffee substitutes, but with almond and vanilla flavours.

Reading other reviews, it definitely reminds me of root beer, as well as burnt sugar.

I used 1.5 tsp in a 16 oz mug, with LOTS of honey and some cream. I steeped for 8 minutes, which may have been too long. I think I’m going to have to play around with brewing this (and I’m not going to be ordering another 100g!), but so far, it’s decent…

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

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!
