From CrowKettle, ages and ages ago.

I’m trying to drink my samples so I don’t feel guilty when I go buy more. :)

I steeped this one REALLY cool. And it’s really good! I’m so surprised! The genmaicha is super toasty and delicious, there’s a hint of sweetness, and a whisper of chocolate. I like this, and I’ll probably drink the rest of the package today (I’ll make a pot. Oh man, I should have purchased that larger tea pot!).

Sounds good!

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!
