Great Canadian Travelling Tea Box

Not sure that i’d dump this into boiling water as the package recommends, but i did brew this up at a lower temperature and it’s pretty good! I am a happy camper enjoying this tonight.

Another morning tea from today…i opted to have this since birthday cake from stacy kept reminding me of this one. It IS similar but not as much as my memory would have you believe. I still prefer this one a bunch since it’s got that depth from the actual tea that i like. Happy i’m still enjoying this one.

I think I need to drink some birthday cake now. 1) I have a billion tons of it. 2) I drank too much puerh/matcha/mate and am just too stressed out.

Ali Bee's Bake Shop

Just ordered some birthday cake from Stacy and I have this one as well! Excited to see how it compares

Morning tea today…so delicious! I’ve been hoarding the bag i split with terri but since i had a small sample from her that came in the travelling tea bag, i splurged by drinking from that sample. I still really enjoy this assam!

So i’m a little over whelmed today in terms of being both a) exausted and b) feeling like my cupboard is totally out of control. Not sure why today feels that way since i’m not much higher after getting my orders in, than i have been in the past. 223 if you’re curious.

I still have a few teas left from the travelling teabox that I want to try, that i don’t want to parcel out and add to my cupboard. Same thing in principle i know except this saves a bag.

So the tea…I really wanted to try this one because it’s from a local shop near Dexter and because it’s one of the most interesting looking teas i’ve seen…AND it’s apparently her favourite tisane…that she didn’t bother adding to steepster! cough So i dont know what’s in this except some green stuff and yellow stuff and purple things…and it smell great! This actually comes as close as i’ve seen to the “fruit tea” i had while i was in Beijing. Seriously…it’s fan-freaking-delicious! I may just have to beg dexter to buy me some and send it my way or something. or i could just buy some stuff…since i took two seconds just now to go look at their website lol

Sooo i’m rambling i have a head ache and haven’t had dinner and really just want to go to bed. but this tea? it’s like a spot of funshine. yep. funshine.

Sorry, my mistake – it was in my cupboard and steepster as dragon fruit not dragon berry. Apple pieces, dragon fruit pieces, sea buckthorn berries, chokeberries, goji berries, kiwi edges sulfurated, pineapple pieces, papaya pieces, citric acid, cranberry pieces, blueberries, vitamin C, flavour

I think in store they actually call it dragonberry fruit….

Dexter

I can definitely get you more if you would like some.

Sil

i’ll keep that in mind. I may just end up placing an order at some point…if i ever get my cupboard under control haha

Dexter

I feel that in the spirit of full disclosure, I should mention that is is amazing cold steeped too – I’ve actually cold steeped it about half and half with straight white, green, and black…..it works really well with the different bases.

RogersCK

That sounds delish!

Morning flavoured tea for today! While not nearly as tasty in a travel mug as at home in a normal mug, this is still a delicious tea that i can get behind!

This is a pretty tasty chai. While its not my favourite chai, this would do in a pinch if I was running low on my other favourites. There’s a decent mix of cardamom and other flavours here that would make a tasty cup brewed in milk with honey. Thanks Indigbloom!

Nxtdoor

What’s your favourite chai? I’m still looking.

Sil

I really like the one from red blossom.

Indigobloom

My fave was one from David’s, oddly enough. I think it’s discontinued now :/

drank Lemon Chiffon by Della Terra Teas

Sip down! Mostly because I knew I had only one sil sized cup left and because I’ve added a few teas to my cupboard from the travelling tea box so that I can sample them later and not hold up the box. Took enough for a cup or so (maybe two to share with Terri) and ill sample those later. It also lets me get a sense of how much room is left or isn’t, in the box. I was going to try and fit things into a smaller box since there was room at the top, but I have too many things to add to share lol

This one is an occasional rebus for me though I like lime chiffon and orange and cream better. Sometimes you just need a little lemon on your life :)

Terri HarpLady

Did I send you a sample of the Lemon Meringue from Trail Lodge Tea yet? Or the Peach Melba?

Sil

Peach Melba yes….the lemon merengue I don’t think so.

Dexter added this from a local tea company and it is YUMMY! Seriously…i just want to take the whole bag. That’s saying a lot too since it has mate in it, which i don’t like. I think this would make one hell of a kickass latte in the winter. It’s a creamy delicious treat. I can smell the almond as i’m drinking this one, but it doesn’t translate into that artificial tasty almond flavouring that i like. Instead it’s closer to a more real almond taste in my opinion. There isn’t enough chocolate on this, but the almond and caramel blend nicely to make a deliciously creamy tasty cup.

that goes amazingly well with the pumpkin spice muffins i just made… MMMMM

Nicole

Pumpkin breads are one of the things to look forward to autumn for!!

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.
