It smells like water from boiled veggies, like asparagus, chard, and spinach. Not really my favourite tea smell.

My face is probably pretty ridiculous right now. I want to taste this tea, and give it a fair shot, but…

Yeah, ok. It’s green veggies and bean sprouts and it’s SWEET. Weird. I might get through 1/4 of my mug (I steeped it per Silk Road’s normal parameters, which is 1 tsp tea for 2 cups of water).

Umm, thank you, CrowKettle, for sharing this one with me. Definitely not something I’ll be buying myself, but green teas are always worth a try. I’ll be giving the rest of the sample to a friend to try.

Haha love it. It’s hard when you really want to try and say something redeeming about the tea but honestly can’t. But hey, you know what you don’t like.

Weird, I wonder what it would be like to make stock with it for soup.

OMGsrsly

It might work for something like that Japanese soup where you pour hot tea over rice and other tasty things.

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!
