2040 tasting notes

This smells really good, but the taste? Ugh. Not so much. I’d like more chocolate and less whatever the rest of it is, please.

It’s a “tea” you need to doctor up like a coffee from Starbucks. Sugar and soy milk, please!

I’ll drink the rest of the 50g I got, but definitely won’t be buying this again. For a coffee substitute I prefer other chicory based teas.

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!
