I drank this this morning in a very fancy tea cup. It was delicious. Nothing added, although a little sweetness wouldn’t be out of place.

This tea is so delicious. It’s tempting to make an order just to get more of this one, but I’ve promised myself that I won’t order until I’ve tried everything and made a list of deliciousness to buy. :)

i got 2 ounces in my order and i’m already through one, lol.

OMGsrsly

I just got 1/2 oz, and I only have one cup left. :( It’s SO GOOD.

JustJames

oh dear, LOL!

Sil

At least it’s on sale ATM? :)

JustJames

HOW DO I MISS THESE THINGS??? wait, wait….. i have to wait til august. (cleansing breath in and out)

OMGsrsly

AAH! Not fair. I now have to plan for a 7-ish day hiking trip, so my next tea purchase has been pushed to the side in favour of some new gear that will make my hiking life easier. :/ (Although… tea could be very very important on the trail…)

JustJames

what if you are stranded in a tree hiding out from a bear? you would need tea…. just an enabling thought to get you through the day, lol.

Cavocorax

Peppermint Patty is also on sale!!!

OMGsrsly

I’m already planning on mining a (hopefully) hilarious reaction from my mom by carrying a (plastic) bottle of olive oil and some premeasured mixes so I can make pancakes and fry-bread for a couple different meals. Should be fun. ;)

I wonder if I could convince them we need to stop for hot lunches, just so I can make more tea?

JustJames

ROFL. i dare you. then take a picture of their faces and post it to the group (that we should begin) named ‘tea shockers’!

OMGsrsly

They actually drink a lot of loose leaf tea. :) Mom’s already said she’s bringing loose tea and a strainer! I’ve just never done a hike like this with them, so I don’t know how they do lunches. Snack on trail? Stop and picnic? Who knows.

The hardest part is deciding which tea I should bring for each meal planned. ;)

JustJames

i did that when i went in for surgery. i justified beforehand that ’it’s tea, it doesn’t take up much space’, committed to myself that i could not fill a suitcase and then chose my favourites (in case everything went to hell and i needed comfort) and some new ones i hadn’t tried.

as for meals… follow pippin and merri’s example? lol.

OMGsrsly

Yeah, Breakfast, 2nd Breakfast, 11sies. I’d love to do that, full on. I think I’ll have to eat a lot while walking though. Apparently the hike is 10k per day, and can average 1k per hour. Yikes! That’s a long, slow day.

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!
