Mmm. Yeah, it’s almost 4am and I’ve been up since 3. I’ve made pasta, played with the cats, and almost finished a giant mug of tea.

This is what happens when you crash at 5pm and are sleeping by 6. I even slept in yesterday.

Anyways, the tea is delicious. I got a rose bud and a jasmine flower in my cup today. I understand why Sil has problems with these teas. They all have so many freakin flowers in them! Still, it tastes like almond cake, almost. I like this tea more every time I have it. So glad I was able to find it. :)

Maybe I’ll try to nap or zone out till it’s actually time to get up. It’s tempting to sew, but I don’t want to bother the nice neighbour too much.

I don’t mind flowers….for decoration ;)

OMGsrsly

Heh. I’ve been avoiding them when I scoop out tea, but didn’t want to end up with a tin of rose buds. That doesn’t sound very tasty to me.

Dinosara

Sounds tasty to me! Yum flowers! :D

yyz

I don’t find that they add that much to the flavour, unless they provide a bit of the initial note I get of Turkish delight from this tea, before it becomes cake!

OMGsrsly

Hmm. Maybe! I didn’t get a lot of rose or jasmine from this one, but the flowers still scared me. :) I’m not used to whole rose buds in my tea.

Dexter

Hmmmmmmmm – I don’t even want flowers for decorations, I’m starting to get really scared at how much Fauchon tea I have in my house. I understand French teas with be perfumey but if they are all LOADED with flowers….

OMGsrsly

Of the three that I have, this one is the “worst” but doesn’t really taste of them. I think the flowers are decoration (Peche et Thym has peach bits, Evening in France has pink rose petals and yellow something petals). They’re easy enough to avoid when spooning out the tea!

Sil

Dexter…we could have a weekend drinking fauchon teas together in spirit…. Flower power!

Dexter

LOL ok – I’m down with that, but will let you go first, help me avoid the worst of them. I actually think I will be ok with Naissance but a little scared of the fruit ones…

Dinosara

Funnily i don’t even find many of those Fauchon teas that floral or perfumey. Guess I’m just made for French teas.

Sil

dino..no no you’re made for FLORAL french teas. I get the others! cough

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!
