So before leaving for the border last night, I made a travel cup of this to help calm my nerves. I’d been curious about it and I hoped the new experience would distract me from my fears. (A quick rundown: On May 24th of 2011, I “landed” officially in Canada and became a permanent resident. Apparently on that date I needed to present the officer with a list of everything I had left to bring in with me. Because I was unaware of this, when I reached the border this morning with all of my things, they legally could have charged me taxes and duties on all of it. Spoiler: They didn’t.)

Anyway, the tastiness of this oolong did distract me into a conversation about it with the wife as we drove down towards New York, and I’m looking forward to trying this again with my new glass gaiwan. The lemon and mint worked well together, but didn’t overpower the delicious oolong…this is definitely one I’ll consider restocking.

I really enjoy this one. It is often the tea I turn to when the 2 year old is being a 2 year old. And that has happened so often I need to restock tomorrow.

I’ve been wary with this one because of the lemon – a lot of the time I find it really overpowering. Maybe I’ll give this one a try after all. :)

I find the flavours in this one totally overwhelm the Oolong-ness… a little more balanced and I’d love it though!

I’ve grown to really love this one. I would definitely give it a try, sarai!

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
