I got sucked into buying this tonight. It was either this for $2.69, or a tin of Coconut Matcha (sweetened) for $9.99. This won.

I’m actually rather impressed. I had guessed it’d steep into a bitter, terrible mess, but it hasn’t. Yes, the flavour is strong and isn’t the best quality, but the cocoa shells and chicory raise this up over a normal flavoured bagged tea. I’ll definitely finish the package, but I don’t think I’d buy it again.

Moooore tea! That’s why I try to stay away from the grocery store tea sections. Don’t need to be tempted by something potentially sub-par.

I’m actually quite pleased with it! It’s not even going bitter as it cools. :) The matcha is pretty good – I’ve had it before (Two Hills), but it’s sweetened and the Red Leaf coconut was soooo good. I’d rather wait for that one.

Fjellrev

Whew, well that’s good to hear. Bagged tea is sometimes good to have around when you’re on the go.

OMGsrsly

I think it’s the cocoa shells that make it. Tastes like Carnation hot chocolate made with cold water. Haha.

Hmm, sounds good, where can that brand be found?

I got it at London Drugs, but I see the brand in various stores now.

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!
