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.

OMGsrsly

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.

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!
