Brought this one with me to make my brother try. This time I rinsed for ~10 seconds, then did a 30 second steep for my mug and a 45 second steep for his mug. His mug smelled so much fruitier than mine! So cool how the tea changes in later steeps.

I left him half of what I had left. I still have enough for 2 smaller mugs of several steeps.

Thanks so much, Heather! We both quite like this tea. I’m going to have to put it, or something similar, on my to buy list. :)

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!
