This is better. Moved onto this from Teavana’s Spiced Mandarin Oolong.

This one is not sour, yet still has citrus and spice. Not quite what I’m aiming for in a mandarin spice tea, but amazing and well-loved nonetheless.

Also, since I’m a classy lady, I didn’t bother with a basket so the orange peels are floating in my cup. I keep accidentally drinking one, and then spitting it back. Oh yeah. You know you live alone when… :)

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!
