I’m SO disappointed that it doesn’t work for me. It smells like creamsicles for real, but once steeped all I can taste is the hay-like guayusa, and apparently I really don’t like that flavour. I’ll just sit here with my nose in the bag, OK?

:(

In other news, I’m sitting on a $50 shopping cart at DavidsTea. Persian Apple (for the BFF), Merry Cranberry, and Ever Green. I’m not sure about the Merry Cranberry or the Ever Green, but I really really really want to try them and this seems like it’s the only way now.

That’s too bad. Do you have a lot of it? Maybe you can swap it for a sample of Merry Cranberry? (Well… that’s a long shot).

OMGsrsly

Haha. I got 1 oz or whatever the minimum was as I was the only one who wanted to try it in the order. The Apple Cider is OK, as the spices kind of hide the hay a bit. :) Taste and learn, right?

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!
