drank St Petersburg by Kusmi Tea
1480 tasting notes

Even though I apparently didn’t get all the cinnamon flavoring off my basket, this tea was so much better.

Bonus: the adorable tin.

I really like this tea, it’s fruity and caramely, but I don’t think if get it again. Not unless I was seriously craving fruit and caramel.

The kusmi tins really are pretty!

Fjellrev

I swear this one smelled like cola bottle candies to me!

MissB

Coca bottle candies? Wow, that’s really evocative.

Fjellrev

Yeah, I swear it was this one and not another Kusmi. Only smelled it in a store. :)

OMGsrsly

So weird. I have to go home and sniff this one now.

Fjellrev

Whoops, just double-checked and it was definitely Prince Vladimir that smells like cola bottles to me!

OMGsrsly

I don’t have Vlad at home. :) I’ll keep it in mind the next time I go to SOKO, though!

Fjellrev

Yeah, I don’t know why I was thinking it was this one.

Fuzzy_Peachkin

I thought a lot of the Kusmi blends tasted like soda, so cola bottle candy makes sense to me.

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!
