So I have to say…Hats off to Stacy! I have not had much luck with oolongs lately – there’s always this weird taste that pokes through the flavouring and makes me cringe. While my sample isn’t quite what the final product landed on since stacy was kinda enough to toss in a sample for me of the pre-final version, i’m certain that the final version is as amazing! I tried this right after the grapefruit tea sample that stacy provided (tasting note on that later omg) and so my mouth was in citrusy heaven. I had absentmindly picked up my tea for a sip while talking to my other half and it shocked me so instantly that i forgot what i was saying as a small “OH!” escaped my lips. I immediately told Ian he had to try it. This blend is superb! I’m not sure what i was expecting when i tried it, but clearly it wasn’t what i was hit with to interupt my thoughts!

There is a creamy delicious maple sweet goodness in this tea that is amazing! I drink all my tea straight, and this is almost too sweet for me – ian even asked if i had put sugar in my tea this time. For those worried about the sweet factor, it’s perfect in this blend to bring together the woodsy, maple tones of the tea.

I will absolutely need to order some of this tea for over the fall/winter. It reminds me of the festival d’hiver that we used to celebrate in school – pouring maple syrup into the snow and rolling it on to the wooden popsicle sticks to make a delicious treat!

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
