I had tea at the Empress a few years ago. I had forgotten that they sent us home with these neat tins full of tea, until I was rumagging around in my parents tea cupbord a while ago. I spirited this tin home with me, mostly for the neat tin, I must confess.
But I’v got three tea bags of this in the tin, which are now several years old, but I am determined to try them anyway.
Hmm. This brewed up very dark very fast. And the first sip gives me a bitter burst.
Second sip provides a little more roastyness, a hint of something greeny lurking in its depths.
This is strong! I’m not sure. I’m such a sweet tea drinker that this is almost overwhelming. These three tea bags will be an adventure in comfort zones, I can tell.

I almost had tea at the Empress when I was in Victoria but couldn’t quite justify the cost.

Oh geez, I still have the complementary box they gave me last year. And it’s insanely expensive, for sure. Definitely not worth the price.

It is. I dont think I would do it again, due to cost, but I do love high tea in fancy hotels.

Bio

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
