So I used to work with a friend that loved tea almost as much as I do, and we would share teas and talk about them all the time. Unfortunately, she was just a term and a lady that used to work in my office 6 years ago came back and kicked her out of her position (stupid government jobs). It ended up being a great thing because I work better with this new lady and she is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. And somehow I have gotten her obsessed with tea as well! We made a Butiki order together the other week and she was even online shopping for teas on her own, and unfortunately for her, she found Teavana online and made an order before I was able to tell her any of my horror stories about Teavana. She ended up hating most of her teas and she has 100g+ of some of them!

So this was one of the ones she purchased and it was REALLY good! It was just such a great strait black tea, malty and delicious! I think I might pick some up from the store when I go down to Vancouver next month. I guess it’s just Teavana blends that I don’t like!

I didn’t drink a lot of tea growing up, just the red rose my nana would make me with about 3 teaspoons of sugar added to it. I started getting into loose leaf tea about a decade ago when I visited our local tea house and tried Rooibos for the first time, though I only drank it on occasion. I didn’t get serious about it until David’s tea came to town. I was on a diet and wanted something I could drink without sugar that had a lot of flavours to choose from.

I prefer black teas, but oolong and green come in a close second. White and guayusa are in the middle, while mate, rooibos and herbals are at the bottom of my list.

Likes: banana, jasmine, pumpkin, lychee, blueberry, chocolate
Dislikes: orange, ginger, rose, hibiscus, butterscotch, honeybush

My non-tea related interests are music, camping, poker, softball, snowboarding, biology and animals. I have 2 dogs and they are my whole life.
