drank Fireside S'mores Tea by Teaopia
1164 tasting notes

Finally finished up this sample from Heather.

I really wish this tea were still available. I like it. A lot. I even picked the mini marshmallows out of the leaves to float in my mug. That’s dedication.

Preparation

Way to be on the dedication haha. I haven’t tried this one. Would you say it’s better than Della Terra’s?

OMGsrsly

I can’t have Della Terra’s because of the cookies. :)

Fjellrev

Oh yeah! Derrrrr, sorry. I read this one’s taste doesn’t live up to its awesome smell.

OMGsrsly

I’d definitely like it better if it were more black tea and maybe a little smoky stuff mixed in. But otherwise I like the flavours. :) I was thinking if mixing my own, but idk what to do about the graham crackers. Rooibos I guess? And where do I find eensy weensy marshmallows? :)

Nuts.com is EVIL. There is so much to choose from, and all of their stuff is very fresh.

OMGsrsly

Oh. My. God.

I can’t figure out shipping to Canada. They do it, but do I need to fill out a cart to find out how much? (OMG, 1lb of mini marshmallows!!!)

Fjellrev

I don’t remember how much it is to ship out one thing. I’m worried it would be like $15+. I’ve made a couple orders so far but usually make it worthwhile and order like $120+ worth of stuff. Shipping would then come to around $26 but if you break it down, it evens out since you’re getting a lot of stuff and everything’s reasonably priced.

OMGsrsly

Too bad their prices for freeze dried things are so high. Or else I could buy ALL the Christmas presents.

The shipping costs deterred me from Nuts, so I went with www.upayanaturals.com. Unfortunately, free shipping in Canada only clicks in at $100 (however my order got here in two days).

OMGsrsly

Thanks, MissB! :) The $27.95 shipping made me close the site.

OMGsrsly

Hmm. They’re more random organic and natural fancy pants stuff. And unfortunately for them, a lot of the prices I saw in my quick scroll through are higher than Whole Paycheque Foods.

MissB

Ha! I’ve yet to go to whole paycheck. I’m sure when the one opens up at Brentwood, I’ll make the trek. If the prices are that high though, well… boooo.

OMGsrsly

I go downtown a lot, and usually go to the tiny one on Robson near Denman. Today I got lemons the size of ORANGES. So fun. :D Oh, and the one on Cambie has loose leaf teas. Or had as of a couple months ago. A really decent silver needle for SUPER cheap.

Amariel

I think Megan, in PF has some left. I think that she got a lot when she worked there during the transition. You might ask her.

OMGsrsly

Hmm. I could, or I could have loads of fun making my own blend. :D I think I can order the marshmallows through Amazon, and then I get a HUGE amount of them. Whee, mini dried marshmallows!

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!
