Sipdown.

Still not my favourite, but I really appreciate CrowKettle going halfsies on the sampler pack with me. :)

A nice light tea to have while I’m waiting for my stew to finish cooking.

Stew is the best. It reminds me of home. :)

OMGsrsly

I am teh laziest, and don’t see the point in making “fancy” dinners that require more than one pot or frypan. :) Stews are perfect.

Conversely, I’ll bake and dirty up every single piece of bakeware in my house before conceding defeat.

I think I’m psychologically damaged from all the stews my grandma made when I was a kid. She’d always load them with turnip, which my tastebuds despise!

Fjellrev, I had a soup made with Lapsang Souchong last week, it was amazing, I wonder if that could convince you to like it? lol

OMGsrsly

Ick, turnip.

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!
