Yum. A tea that doesn’t need additives.

It brews up SO pale, I was concerned I wouldn’t get any tea taste in it, but no worries. It’s a bit of a toasted oolong, which normally I don’t love, but goes perfectly with the toasted hazelnut and vanilla.

It’s like dessert. Except it’s just liquid in a glass.

I found that too, and that the flavour was really mild, until it cooled some.

I found this one to be so thin and weak, and almost cardboard-like, unfortunately.

OMGsrsly

I think I overleafed it a lot…

Wait a minute! I just realized that I’m thinking of their Toffee Dream. I still have this unopened from my spring order. Overleaf. Duly noted.

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!
