I was at the distillery district today with my girlfriends, this arts/food/shopping/European/historical inspired complex and managed to grab a cup of looseleaf at the chocolate shop… it was delightful! not as bold as the description on the menu stated, but I did taste a hint of raspberry. Of course, that could be the power of suggestion because it was the merest of hints, and the description mentioned raspberry… but there was definitely something sweet about the tea, and I added no sugar.
It’s not one I would go back to repeatedly though, but it’s definitely better than Tim’s or Starbucks, which I stoop to more often than I’d like!
Bah. Next time I’ll try the darjeeling they have.
Overall, highly pleasant! just not memorable— though it may have been had I chosen to drink it bare.
(((ok truth be told, I was sad that we didn’t make it to this other cafe in the complex that I hear has a supply of Mariage Freres. I think I need to make a special trip there asap!)))

Ooh, when in the Distillery stopping by Balzac’s for MF is a must! They’re sometimes running low as I don’t think they order it very frequently, but one must take what one can. I’m not sure where you are, but they also have a location in Liberty Village.

haha indeed!! I saw looseleaf at Cafe Uno, but didn’t have a chance to ask if that was where the Mariage Freres is sold. So tha tmeans there are THREE places where I can find tea in the Distillery!!! sweet :)

Teawing: I still have most of mine, I’ve been saving it! but I’ve been craving it… I think tomorrow morning it needs to be had again :)

teawing

no saving for me, I devour the ones l really like.
3 local places! I am envious.

Indigobloom

ah see I tend to hoard them… and try and get rid of the ones I dislike. But I need to stop doing that or else what is the point?? I need to offload some of my so-so teas though
yup, I don’t know where to start!

teawing

make a list of available swaps, list some favorites and get to it! :)
