drank Morning Sun by Mandala Tea
1613 tasting notes

My BFF came by to pick me up for a day of shopping, and so I made us this tea.

It’s really mild. I mean, I know I only did a 2 minute steep, but wow that was not the kind of morning tea I was expecting! Still, I did enjoy it. Sweet, thick, a hint of spice as it cooled.

And then I was out, needing more tea, so I followed it with Awake at Sbux. That… was not good.

Flavors: Spices, Sweet, Thick

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

It was good, but I wanted more. If that makes sense. It was so mild I didn’t get any flavour until it cooled a lot.

A, umm, close to 30 minute second steep has brought me closer, although now it’s getting a little astringent.

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!
