I have a sample from VariaTEA. :)

So about an hour ago I decided to brew up some more tea, only I accidentally splashed water on my regular timer and killed it dead (boo). I decided to try the timer in the Steepster app, only it failed horribly. I’m not sure if it’s my phone or the app, but the timer didn’t go off and then when I remembered about the tea and went to finish logging it, the timer said -58:00 and then the app re-loaded to the search screen. IDK why my phone is doing this, but it is CONSTANTLY RELOADING and it’s making me MAD.

Anyways. I strained the tea thinking it’d be horrible, but it’s not! It’s totally drinkable, only a little bitter. Tastes like I’ve put loads of sugar in it – all sweet sugar fluff dissolving on my tongue. How is this possible? That’s amazing!

Thankfully I have a couple more cups of this to try, but it’s good to know that so far I like it!

Preparation

This totally tasted like vaguely sweetened black tea to me, but I’m glad you like it!

OMGsrsly

It tasted super sweet to me. Maybe I’m just getting sensitive to that flavour?

Amariel

Same here.

I found this extremely sweet too- one of the more pronounced 52tea flavorings for me.

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!
