I tried a cup of this tea tonight. A fruit tea with no hibiscus?! Rad!! Still, it’s very sweet-tart. I didn’t use boiling water and it’s a bit thin and watery. I guess hibiscus feels thick?

I do like this and think it’ll be better with boiling water. It’s also nice as it cools, and I look forward to trying it as a cold steep.

Preparation

Come to think of it, hibiscus does kind of add a syrupy feel to teas.

OMGsrsly

No wonder it’s in everything!

Surely that must be why, because so many people hate it! Why put it in almost every single herbal if it makes people cry inside.

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!
