This reminds me of a Big Red Robe, but oversteeped. That dark dusty roasty malty earthy flavour. Sadly not a favourite of mine. So glad I only have a couple cups more to drink!

Hmmm. Maybe I should try Big REd Robe! I like this one but I might understeep it.

Silk Road’s Big Red Robe is a toned down, light-hearted cousin of Verdant’s Anxi Fo Shou. Similar flavour profiles to my untrained palate, but one is much more drinkable for me! Maybe I’ll be cheeky and make up some of each of these three teas and test them out today. I’ll have to use bags, as I only have 2 strainers.

I mostly drink black tea, with some floral oolongs or puerhs thrown in for variety.

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!
