I can’t believe I have missed this out from all my notes. I got this at the same time as the other Lapin Yrtti Oy tea that I logged some time ago. A couple of my friends brought it back with them when they came back from holiday in Scandinavia in early 2008 and I have had it ever since. This is a nice mild green tea. It’s very mild in flavour and the cloudberry flavour is mild too. It recommends to steep for 10 mins but I am a bit flexible and rarely wait that long.

Lapin Yrtti Oy has to be one of the coolest looking tea vendor names I’ve ever seen. It doesn’t have anything to do with rabbits, does it?

Don’t know. I don’t know any finnish I’m afraid. I’ve always hoped so, although yrtti oy doesn’t have any connotations to me

‘Yrtti’ means ‘herb’

‘Lapin’ means ‘of Lapland’

‘Oy’ means ‘limited company’

I have a Finnish friend who likes lots of tea, although she’s never used this company before she has decided to try them!

Grinnyguy

Heya ellie! Glad you could make it. And thanks for the info, I never knew that! Did you have to ask your finnish friend to find out?

takgoti

Oh sweet. Good to know!

EllieTea4Me

Well, she didn’t so much have to find out what it meant, she just translated it for me. She translates short stories from Finnish into English too.
I personally introduced her to Cinnamon and Orange Rooibos and her tea related activities haven’t been the same since….

Bio

I moved from the UK to Australia in 2015. I’ve had a fascination with tea since university, and like to try lots of different types. My preference is for real tea over other infusions: green tea, oolong and black, including flavoured varieties. I love encouraging people to try new teas. I also play the trombone.
Ratings:
>90: Some of the best I’ve had so far.
80-90: I love this tea, likely to buy again
70-80: Good tea. Most tea in my cupboard is in this category because it’s fine to drink it all day!
50-70: I’d drink it if it was offered to me, and I’ll drink what’s in the cupboard, but I’m unlikely to buy it again.
