drank Northern Berry Kyss by Zen Tea
1471 tasting notes

I forgot about this on the counter. I originally tried making it in the steeper I got today, but the jar exploded on my counter (I lost two teas from Pekoe Tea House, oops). After I cleaned up the resulting mess, I made it again. And sat down. And played on the internet, as one does.

So this steeped for at least 15 minutes. It’s very medicinal-rooibos. I quite like it, but I’m not sure I’d get it again. I still have a bunch of “Lemon Verbena” from Granville Island that sort of fills that niche. The cranberry and juniper are really nice in here, though. Tart berry flavours, some weird juniper flavours. They work well with the rooibos.

If you like rooibos, or medicinal teas, definitely give this a go.

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!
