Thank you Dexter3657 for this sample.

It is weird. I’m eating a cookie with it and I’m not getting much tea flavour. A bit of bitterness, a bit of weird mentholishness that must be from the sarsaparilla root, I smell but can’t taste a general fruitiness.

So. Weird and interesting. Not something I’ll pick up in the future (Unless it’s amazing cold brewed. I should try cold brewing this!), but really neat to try!

Edit: I missed it! This was post 1234! AHHH!!!

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 1 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML

And you are just Dexter now! I hadn’t noticed. Sorry!

Most people found the numbers confusing, and I JUST changed it – no worries (and I might change it back – weird to see it as just Dexter…).
I need to play with that tea too. it’s strange, but I think it has potential…. cold steep? maybe…

OMGsrsly

It got better as it cooled (to me) so yeah. Cold steep, maybe iced…

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!
