drank Mint by Second Cup

I was sure Mint was going to be the one good tea in the Second Cup gift box of tea I received as a gift. Alas, Second Cup has figured out how to ruin mint tea too—by adding chamomile. I hate chamomile, and It actually overpowered the mint flavour. I think I’ll be giving the rest of the Mint tea bags away; they’ll probably just go stale in my tea drawer. :P

have you tried egyptian looseleaf? It’s completely different!! I thought I hated. and I mean HATED chamomile until I tried it loose. Now I love it to pieces! xx

I’ll have to try it sometime. Maybe I can score a sample somewhere so I don’t have to commit to buying a bunch that I might not like. Thanks!

Do you have a David’s Tea nearby?
or I could send you some… PM me! :)

I do have a David’s Tea in town; I just haven’t made it there yet because it’s at the opposite end of the city to me. Now I’ll definitely have to visit soon. :)

drank Green by Second Cup

Don’t let the “estate tea” claim on the box and the pyramid tea bags fool you. There’s nothing exciting about this tea. It’s just your regular-tasting bagged green. It’s not terrible, but I certainly wouldn’t buy it or choose to drink it if I had alternatives. Alas, I have a few more bags of it to get through; it came as part of a gift box of tea I was given.

I have been repeatedly amazed at how disappointing the explosion of options in the, shall we say, premium bagged tea market have been; especially with green tea.

Ditto. I do like what I’ve tried from Mighty Leaf, but that’s pretty much it.

Profile

Bio

I’ve been in love with tea since I discovered the awesomeness of loose-leaf tea about four years ago.

In general, I prefer black, green, oolong, and matcha teas. I’m not a big fan of flavoured teas, but every so often I come across one I like. I also like peppermint, but that’s about it for tisanes.

I recently tried matcha for the first time, and it’s seriously growing on me.

My favourite tea accessory is my chasen holder, hence my profile pic, and my favourite teaware is the shudei kyusu I got from Den’s Tea for 99 cents. I use it both for cooling water and steeping tea. Probably the best 99 cents I’ve spent. :)
