So weird. I generally don’t love green teas, but I actually really like this one.

Steeped as directed, Western style, it is smooth and vegetal, and a little sweet as well. It has a bit of a seaweed flavour, but nothing too over the top, and there’s a bit of the roasty flavour the Laoshan Black has. The roasty flavour is very subdued here though. This would make an excellent genmaicha, as the roasty green flavours would compliment the toasted rice really well.

I don’t drink a lot of green tea, but this is one I would definitely purchase again, especially if I only needed one more tea to make the free shipping limit. Yum!

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!
