drank Peppermint by Tim Hortons
989 tasting notes

In the Vancouver airport, headed to the island with the bfs for a wedding on his side! So I grabbed a cup of this, my go-to, to-go (haha) tea. I mean, it’s pretty hard to mess up peppermint lol. Tasty and refreshing and nice on my tummy after my greasy yet amazing bagel BELT. Lol, any good tea recommendations in Vancouver or on the island?

Where on the island will you be? Silk Road tea and Murchie’s are out there

Silk Road and Murchies on the Island. Urban Tea Merchant ($$$), Granville Island Tea, Teaz/Herbal Republic, umm… http://goo.gl/maps/gXsKK Here. This is probably easier.

Any specific Q’s about Vancouver, send me a message. :) If you only have a day, I’d say stay in Kits/Downtown. Bayswater, O5, the others I’ve listed. Soirette Macaron House for a treat (haven’t been, but it looks cute!), etc.

Thanks for the suggestions! I want to come back for a tea trip lol unfortunately I didn’t get much time to tea shop and I’ve mostly only been in nanaimo and North, but I did get two homemade tea mugs, so beautiful, i’ll have to put pictures up, hopefully they make it home safe in my bags!

Hello all, I am an electrical engineer (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I have tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.

95+: Absolute favorite, will try to always have it in stock, and when I don’t I pine over it!
90-94: Awesome teas, will probably purchase again a few times
80-89: Very good tea, may restock at some point
70-79: happy to have tried and will gladly finish, but not restock
60-69: not horrible, but not the best, will finish if I have some though
50-59: not a favorite, probably will have a tough time finishing the bag
-50: yuck. I don’t want to have it ever again.
