So a friend came over and I forgot this in the tea pot for, umm, 2 hours or so. I was trying to do a 30 minute steep as my second steep, and obviously that failed.


Still good, but yeah. So spicy. Very little base coming through, but IMO that’s a good thing. Really enjoying my lightly sweetened cup with milk.

Boiling 8 min or more

(I’ve mostly stopped reviewing teas here, and also mostly stopped drinking tea. :( )

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.

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!


Vancouver, BC, Canada
