Successful mug of this tonight. I used maybe 1/4 tsp of “stuff” in significantly cooled water (I was just sipping hot water, then decided to make it into tea!) and made sure it just included 1 vanilla piece, and 1 almond piece. Steeped 3 minutes, added honey and soy creamer, and yes. It is good.

It’s really too bad this one requires so much fiddling to get right, because once you get it right, it’s incredibly tasty.

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!
