(From zentealife.com) I don’t really know what verbena and blackberry leaves taste like, but wow I like this. I can see this being amazing if steeped “forever” and then served on ice or reheated.

Yes, it’s a bit medicinal, but that’s pretty normal when you get things like nettle and lemongrass! Definitely use a fine strainer, as the nettle crushes quite easily and I have a lot of floaties.

As it cools I’m getting a tart cranberry flavour! Yes! Just make sure you get a piece of dried cranberry in your spoon.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 7 min, 45 sec

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!
