While sipping this tea, I’m cruising the Mandala website, planning what to get. Hmm… One of each?

I want to get something as a gift for a friend as well, so I’ll see what happens once I’m feeling better and manage to try some samples I have/am anticipating (OMG, swaps could become addictive!). :)

This one is from Sil. Again. I could tell it was citrusy, so I brewed some up Silk Road style (1 tsp per 16oz) and added a load of honey.

Mmm. Sweet honey-citrus tea. This is nice. And not too strong.

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!
