Nom. Om nom nom.

I shouldn’t be having caffeine at this time of night, but I’m about to do a lot of yoga and wanted something delicious smelling and tasting to ease me into it.

I’m using a poly tea bag for this (from Japan!) as the frankincense resin was a pain in the butt to get off of everything it touched last time!

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!
