Apparently I have some of this tea at home! I was trying to dig something out of my friends cupboard I hadn’t had before, or at least not that frequently. Oh well.

I’m having this iced with honey today. Brewed double strength (1 tsp per 6-8oz water-that-cooled-5-mins) and poured it over ice, then added ice till the cup was full. I think I ended up with about 16 oz, but I’m not sure.

I added 1/2 tsp honey to it while it was brewing, which was too much. I do like honey with lemongrassy teas, though! Just maybe a lot less next time. A hint of honey rather than it being a prominent flavour.

This tea is so good. I love it iced so much. I hope I can replicate the tastiness at home later, once I’ve finished my laundry!

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!
