A sample from the lovely MissB.

Sadly this isn’t for me. I tried it, the flavours aren’t flavours I want to drink, and it has been added to my brother’s Christmas present.

Ah, that sucks. I hope he enjoys them at least!

This blend was actually discontinued very shortly after MissB got it. I’ve been going back to some of my original teas from when I began the company (and didn’t understand tea as much) and either changing the blends or removing them entirely. Blackburnian Tea was the last of the original teas to be discontinued in the “Great Purge”.

OMGsrsly

I don’t think it was bad, per se. More that it just isn’t a tea that I like. :)

Whispering Pines Tea Company

Yeah…though “not bad” and “artfully crafted” are a big difference ;) I’ve given up “just okay” blends :)

MissB

Oh, wow! I got this just recently, too. Good to know.

Whispering Pines Tea Company

Yep yep! In fact, here’s is a list of blends recently discontinued: Cinnamon Rooibos, Irish Mint, Velvet Chai, Coco Blanco, Formosa Oolong, Blackburnian Tea, and Mountain Nectar. These will all remain special order, though. I’ve always found it upsetting when a company discontinues something I loved and I’ll never be able to get it again – so I keep a file of old blend recipes for people that may want them in the future :)

Don’t worry though, this simply makes room for improving current blends and developing new ones! :D

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!
