I haven’t had this one for a while as the tin is sitting under other tins in my cupboard. I brought it out when a friend asked for “Earl Grey” type teas… which I really don’t have many of.

This tea works so well in a travel mug, as well as a cup. 1 tsp per 16 oz water, you’d think the flavours would be weak and watery – well, they’re not. This truly is one of my favourite teas, and the hint of vanilla coupled with the delicateness of the bergamot work really well with the base of this tea.

Even though I ended up having coffee this morning too (The horror!), I’m really enjoying sipping on my mug of this.

I have to agree. This one’s one of my favourite “Earl Grey type” teas, though not one I tend to think of if I want an EG actually. It’s more of a tea I reach for when I want “that flavour I can’t describe”, and it really hits the spot.

I also had a sachet of it tied to the rearview mirror of my car for a bit the other day because it smelled better than the hot dog smell left over from having the dog in the back seat, haha

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!
