Sadly this is kinda meh. It’s a sweet, very slightly nutty, somewhat weak, iced tea.

I did a hot steep with half the packet (diluted to 4 cups), then I tossed the leaves into a cold steep that I will let sit until I get home later.

So far, not impressed. I think that for the other half of the packet I will make it as 2 cups of tea.

(Also, it was 14g including the giant tea bag. What?)

Added: 1/2 tsp rock sugar to the 4 cups. Also tried: with almond milk, but it’s WAY too dilute to make a milky tea.

200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 30 sec 7 g 32 OZ / 946 ML

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!
