This would be so much better without the hibiscus! While I long for a strawberry tea of deliciousness, I also long for a mandarin spice oolong and/or black tea.

One day I will find you, tea. One day.

Edit: Oh gods. Had to dump the cup. Moving on. Too much hibiscus AND the cloves are making my tongue numb. Next time, maybe not 3 minutes when I end up with a clove in my basket.

Oh yeah, I could only imagine what a weird sensation that would be. Numbing cloves + drying hibiscus. Ahhh!

OMGsrsly

It was pretty terrible! I think I rinsed it last time, and did a shorter steep. I should look up my notes, or note better instructions on my tins! :)

Bio

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!
