drank Royal Abkhazi by Silk Road
1859 tasting notes

I finally managed to eat food today ($$$ bacon my brother got me, an egg, and sauteed greens, yum!) and to top off that delicious meal I decided to have an earl grey.

This one is, as always, fantastic. Just having it with a little soy creamer today.

Pay attention to their steeping instructions. 1/2 tsp per 7 oz (or so, this time), 4 mins. It’s actually pretty good, even though my water was WAY too cool. I do prefer making it in 16oz quantities, but I’m trying to only have 8oz cups of tea today, so I get to have more varieties before I start sloshing!

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!
