It looks pretty as it steeps, it turns into a neat murky red berry colour. Like natural dye. :)

Tasting it, I get tulsi and fennel. That’s pretty much it.

I don’t care for this one so much, so do any of my current swap peeps want to try?

I treat this like I would a mulling spice mix. Better with Apple cider, wine or cranberry juice mixed in…or some black tea and honey like chai.

Good to know, Bonnie. :) My offer still stands. As the tea is cooling I’m getting loads of coriander and it’s starting to taste soapy. I don’t think this one’s for me! (I have a love-hate relationship with the herb. Sometimes it works, sometimes it really doesn’t!)

I’d love to give it a go!

In your bag! :) Along with some jam. I need to go through my teas and add some for you tomorrow.

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!
