drank Currant Affair by DAVIDsTEA
1429 tasting notes

Whoops. Another tea that I forgot to add to my cupboard at some point.

This one is pretty good. A bit medicinal, a bit rooibosy. Reminds me a lot of those British blackcurrant licorice candies. Mmm, so good.

I preemptively put about 1/2 tsp rock sugar chunks into my basket as I steeped the tea, just because the scent made me crave candy. Mmm, candy. :)

If you like ribena or those candies I mentioned, this is one to try. If not, or if you really dislike rooibos… stay away! :) I will probably get more of this once my stash has diminished somewhat.

This smelled amazing but was a little too medicinal for my tastes. I ended up sending Cavo what I had left.

I haven’t even heard of this one. >.> Winter collection??

OMGsrsly

It’s a tea of the month. :) And I like medicinal stuff for some weird reason.

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!
