Had a cup of this tonight to celebrate my residency. I made syrup out of it a while back for use on pancakes, so my association with it is a super sweet syrup, so I don’t reach of it often. It’s sweet, yes, but not overly so…it’s delicious. I love this one.

Resteep…still delicious. A bit weak, I don’t think it would survive a third steep. Well, it might with good water, but here our water has a lot of chlorine in it, and I could taste a hint of it through the tea.

Yesterday was a huge day for me. As of 8:11 am on May 24th, 2011, I am a permanent resident of Canada. YAY!

However, as of 10 pm, May 23rd, I had food poisoning and enough stress about my landing interview the next day that I couldn’t sleep at all. (The landing interview took ten whole minutes and was stupidly stressfree).

Cut to 4 pm yesterday, and I was dragging. I was incredibly exhausted from a day of dealing with the government and putting in applications (I seriously handed out about 20 resumes yesterday). So when we stopped in at DavidsTea to drop off an application, well, of course I had to try this beauty! We were told it tastes like Lipton tea with peach, and I’ll agree with that. It was delicious. And more importantly, it gave me the much-needed boost to finish handing out resumes and applications. I was awake and alert without being jittery.

So there you have it!

Congrats on your permanent residency! My DH got his residency about the same time (maybe a little bit later), but the strike delayed his card.

Backlogging. We found ourselves in Square One on Monday, so of course we had to stop in and try this little beauty.

I am in love. This was so incredibly good. I love bubble tea, but the stuff from a powder, well, it tastes like it. And while I’m sure this one had its fair amount of sugar in it, it wasn’t nearly as bad as others I’ve had.

It was amazing, and I definitely plan to return…often!

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!
