Oh tea with the ridiculously giggle-causing name, you are SO good.

Tonight, with a bit of Jamieson’s (because it’s in the cupboard), some maple syrup and a touch of coconut milk.

I know, I know. All those additives might hide the flavour. BUT THEY DON’T! It just amps up the delicious sweet honey chocolate booze notes in the tea. YUM.

Definitely on my shopping list.

Thanks, MissB!

i forgot to buy more of this when i was there haha but that’s ok.

OMGsrsly

GASP! But it’s SO GOOD! (I’m gonna order this and Kapha at least, closer to my birthday.)

Yvonne

Honey chocolate…I think I might drool. :P

Sil

Omg… I was distracted…they had A caramel cream decaf…but not a regular version, so I got both caramel and cream to make my own….

OMGsrsly

Oooo, nice one Sil!

Yvonne, to me it’s definitely an Irish Cream type tea. Not really, but that sort of theme. It’s why it goes so well with whisk(e)y!

MissB

I think it’s meant to be an Irish Whiskey kinda tea… and thus the silly name (which, BTW, no one at tgteas had any idea it was that silly when I mentioned it). I still have quite a bit of this left, I keep on forgetting to drink it. Will do some tonight! Kapha too.. 100g is a LOT for that tea! I also grabbed some of the caramel creme decaf, I’m curious to see how it fares.

OMGsrsly

I look forward to your tasting notes, MissB. :) TG is DEFINITELY a birthday order.

Sil

can you get 50g online? or just in store?

OMGsrsly

I think you can only get 100g online.

Sil

BOOOOOOOO heh store let me pick up 50g :)

OMGsrsly

Nice! But I won’t mind 100g of this one. Only… I might not be able to get any due to exchange rates. BOO exchange!

MissB

Exchange rates? Boo. I get paid in US $… if you want I’ll order some for you. Also, I think you should bring more of this with you this weekend. Then when people ask what you’re drinking, you can just say, “O’Connor’s Cream”, and people will ask you, with nary a blink of the eye, if you can point out Monsieur O’Connor. ;)

Sil

bwahhahahahhaaa

OMGsrsly

I tried that tonight! Nothing. ;) I don’t want to deprive you of extra tea cash, MissB! It’s lovely of you to offer though.

OMGsrsly

And now I’m having another steep of this tea with MOAR whisk(e)y and honey and coconut cream. Ohhhhh. Whisk(e)y and tea is one of my new favourite things.

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!
