drank Read My Lips by DAVIDsTEA
1622 tasting notes

Gotta sip down the minty stuff since I’m moving in with my BFF, who is horribly allergic.

This is from Cavocorax. :)

Kind of disappointing today really. Not much tea, lots of mint (which is surprisingly ok for me this morning) and the DavidsTea chocolate flavour of meh.

Generally I do like this one as an occasional treat, but I’m not too disappointed I won’t be able to have it again.

Thanks for sharing, Cavo!

I’ve never heard of a mint allergy before – I feel so sorry for him or her! I am a mint addict. MMMM.

This was THE tea that started me down this path, my very favorite tea for a long time.
Until I found Della Terra’s mint chocolate teas….then this one became kind of meh.

OMGsrsly

Yeah, it’s interesting. And it’s just peppermint and garden mint. Flavourings as well as the plant. Well. Interesting. Her throat closes up and she can’t breathe, so it really is horrible.

I have mint lotions and aromas and tea and anything else I can get minty. Almost all my lip balm would be awful for her. I used to have a field of mint when I was a kid. It was lovely. It must be hard for her to avoid mint, it is a pretty common aroma/additive. I have a personal loathing of coconut but at least it doesn’t try to kill me!

Boo… sorry it was disappointing. I find it never hurts to overleaf this one, and then you’ll be done it sooner!

OMGsrsly

Cavo, one cup left! Hopefully it’s more like I remember. :)

Uniquity, she has to get off transit because people are chewing gum, leave cafes because people get mint tea, and recently had to evacuate her shared office because someone came in with mint. She had to go outside the building and get someone to bring her all her things. Allergies suck!

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!
