A sad sipdown. It’s also sad because I think this is going onto the “don’t reorder” list. I do like it, but I don’t think I like it enough.

With cranberry honey, it’s really fruity even though I steeped it for something ridiculous like 10 mins. Apparently I forgot to press “go” on my timer! Oops. :)

Thank you for the chance to really try this one out, MissB.

Preparation

I agree. It was a good tea but not good enough that I would want to reorder it. I was sad to see it go though.

Cranberry honey. You have the best additions/ideas.

OMGsrsly

LOL. I even have two kinds of cranberry honey – one made from the flowers, and one with cranberries in it. :) Since I don’t eat bread, my options are to eat it with a spoon or put it in tea.. and it’s also really nice drizzled on oranges.

Courtney

Where did you find it? I want some now. :)

OMGsrsly

PNE! They have a bee section in the barns where you can see them pull honeycomb and spin it, and then they also have really expensive local honey to buy. :)

Courtney

Ohh PNE. I was hoping it was a grocery store. I have a list of things for when I next visit now haha!

Courtney

Look at that. Brilliant. I’m already excited and I don’t even have it yet!

OMGsrsly

The orange blossom is really nice as well. Good thing about going in person, is there are tasters. :D I just like the slightly sour thing the cranberry has going on.

Courtney

I love cranberries hah! I’ll be exploring this site more for sure.

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!
