drank Green Tea by Tim Hortons
349 tasting notes

We had some time to kill today while we were out, so we decided to stop in and have sandwiches and drinks. I don’t go to Tim Horton’s often so I’m not familiar with their tea selection. To order quickly I just asked for green tea. I was able to drink it, but it didn’t taste good at all. If I wasn’t told that it was a green tea I wouldn’t have been able to recognize it. It tasted bitter and murky and oh so disappointing, especially when compared to the yummy little chicken sandwich they made me. Furthermore, the price for Tim Horton’s bagged tea confuses the heck out of me. Their prices range by the size, but regardless of the size you still only get one tea bag. The only difference is that you get a larger cup and more water. But to confuse their logic even further, after ordering, we went back and asked for a cup of hot water, and they gave it to us in a large sized cup for free. whaaaaat? Now that’s a head scratcher.

Bring your own bag and just ask for hot water. I used to work at Tim’s and I can tell you all the tea is… well icky. Most of the staff don’t keep the steeped stuff fresh either. They’ll keep an eye on the coffee but not the tea so be careful :D

I think I was the only one to ever check the steeped tea :D of course they know nothing about tea so it’s all made at boiling temp.

Good idea Helena, that way I’ll save some money, and more importantly, I can get a decent cup of tea to accompany my sandwich. I need to remember that for next time. I’m glad I didn’t go for the steeped stuff – yikes!

I’ve known people who made that mistake and found it to be too much :D I’ve started bringing my own tea to a few places. If I like the place I’ll order their tea and ask for the bag to be on the side. Then I swipe it out and put in my own stuff :D

Hmmmm. Thanks for the heads up! I used to always get steeped tea, though to be fair I added so much cream/sugar I doubt I’d have noticed if it was old.

Oh man I love the steeped tea! well, love it in the same way I love a little packet of instant milk tea. Cream and sugar and I’m very comforted, although it’s not “special” it’s loads better than their crappy bags lol

That’s my mug! I’ve never really been a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, but I like the fact that this mug is more or less clear. Plus, I can’t help but giggle when I say “ewww …I have Pooh on my mug” and people in the room gawk in horror before realizing I’m talking about Winnie. Am I easily amused? heck yeah!

A little something about my interests? – In no particular order, I love tea, makeup, paper crafting (card making), home renovations, and gardening.

As a rule, I tend to drink my tea without adding anything, but if that doesn’t work for me, I indulge in the fact that rules are meant to be broken. Yep! I’m such a rebel…sometimes I even color outside the of lines :P
