drank Root Beer by Simpson & Vail
1464 tasting notes

Iced. With sweetened condensed milk.

Do it. Actually, try it with any black tea you can brew very strong. I love this in the summer, even though it isn’t the most healthy. :)

It is making me crave a root beer float, though. Ohh, that would be so good with fancy root beer and coconut “frozen dessert”.

(Steeped in 8 oz, added 2 tsp sweetened condensed milk, poured over enough ice to chill it thoroughly. I use mugs for this as I’ve had too many glass things break.)

Edit: Thank you, Fjellrev!!

Doooo! I have a few teas I really like iced this way. Fruity ones, desserty ones, etc. :) (Oh, if I didn’t need to stop with the caffeine I’d try with mango. Yum!)

I did this with Oh Canada. OMG, so yummy!

OMGsrsly

I’m going to be doing this with All The Teas! because I have a whole tin of sweetened condensed milk in the fridge. :)

Ooooh!!! I may need to do a Simpson & Vail order soon! I’ve been searching for a good root beer tea since DAVIDs discontinued root beer float (and I’m hoarding the last little bit of what I have til I find a replacement), and upon looking at their site there’s a TON I want to try! WOO! Thanks for the head’s up!!!!

OMGsrsly

A lot of their stuff is pretty good. And it’s certainly reasonable. :) This is one I think I’d want more of. This and Gingerbread.

I think Butiki has a Root Beer honeybush still.

OMGsrsly

Yes they do! And I like it a lot.

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!
