Great Canadian Traveling Tea Box
Certainly having fun with the travelling teabox today. I won’t get through them all today but i’m well on my way to being able to package the box up tomorrow…though i may wait until tuesday to add a couple teas that janelle would like to try.
this tea? not too shabby actually. Blackberry it is! i think this would make a really tasty cold brew with a dash of sweetner. Im thinking about just letting this cool off to drink it cold haha. it’s like a juicy tea. There is no sage in this though….like none. So i’ll have to knock off some points for not being the tea it claims to be. but it is tasty. :)

Similar to Dexter, there’s a part of me that wants to pull this out of the teabox, but i will resist so that others can try! This is similar to the buckwheat tea i brought back from china that everyone seems to have enjoyed so far, so yay for that! This really is like drinking cereal from the box. It’s roasty, it’s nutty..it’s delicious! This will likely be something i pick up if i ever get around to placing a harney order…or visiting there :)
Great Canadian Traveling Tea Box I guess i’ll be consistent with Dexter :)
I am a fan of this one! I wish there was a little bit more lemon in it, but over all it’s delicious! This made me want to pick up a subscription to handmade teas, though I’ll likely want until christmas time just to give myself a chance to get my cupboard under a bit more control. I’m cold brewing the resteep of this just to see how it tastes as a cold brew!
This one is really tasty if you like Cardamom..which i do. so ha! It’s also making me really want some tasty chai now hehe. I really like the punch of this tea. there’s a sweetness here that is deliciously wonderful too. It looks like i may need to place an order with new mexico tea company sooner, rather than later since there are a few that have been passed on to me that i have enjoyed!
I opted to try this one even though i’m not a fan of yerba mate. Turns out this may be one of the few blends that it actually works for me. This is a really nice pumpkin blend and if you don’t mind yerba mate i can see how this could sky rocket to near the top of pumpkin blends. For me though, the yerba mate makes this less desireable. The spices are really nicely balanced in this though – so i recommend folks give it a shot if they’re looking for a good pumpkin blend. I’ll hold off rating this since i know i don’t like mate but for me this would sit around a 65 – so still decent.
Canadian Travelling Tea Box! (CTTB??) lol
This is one of the first teas i pulled from the teabox since i generally don’t mind hibiscus and i DO love orange. Verdict on this one? REALLY tart. I’m not sure how much of that is the assortment of pieces i got in my teaspoon but i would recommend NOT steeping this for 4 mins – i steeped mind for 3 and it’s very tart. I’m thinking a 2 mins steep of this would likely be the sweet spot for me. Overall, this isn’t a bad tea but there are other orange tisanes/herbals out there that i would prefer.
SIPDOWN! thank you terriharplady for this sample. I’m kicking off the morning with this one, and will likyl be coming back to it throughout the day to ground my tastebuds. I have a number of teas i want to try from the canadian teabox so that I can get it out the door asap.
First impressions: earthy, there’s a sweetness in the background, mushroomy almost.. more to come.
Edit: Still really enjoying this over the morning and afternoon…the earthiness is sliding in to the background and the sweeter notes are coming to the front.
