Steeps, The Urban Teahouse

Recent Tasting Notes

Best tea ever. Now they changed it! Why, oh why? The replacement “Market Spice” is not even close to what it was. I encourage all lovers of the former Market Spice to write, call, do anything to try to get it back. Please Steeps, having my Market Spice every night was a highlight of my day. Please bring it back.

I’ve been employeed at Steeps/Oolong tea houses in Calgary for over 4 years. The Silver Cloud that we sell comes from a distributer over seas in Germany. They flavour it with what they call “Prickly Pear”. Personally the aroma of the leafs gives off a soft lemon and floral smell. On the toungue it has a delicate taste and is quite light. I do taste the pear flavour once steeped properly – I find this tea to be light and refreshing. If anyone wants to order go to www.oolonghouse.com and i’ll ship you some!

I have a bag of this, loose, and make a pot fairly regularly. It’s mild, a bit sweet, gentle – simple – like drinking water :-) I drink it hot or cold, or in between…
