A cozy little shop on the main street of Sidney, Janet’s Special Teas has a very homey feel to it. Tons of interesting bits of teaware and a great selection of teas. I had a hard time choosing what tea I wanted to take home and finally settled on 100g each of Rainbow Rooibos (a blend of rooibos, strawberries, raspberries, amaretto flavour, and cornflowers) and her best seller, named after the city of Sidney (another fruity, but lightly spiced rooibos blend that I will be trying as soon as it brews).
Janet herself is a real character, she has a great sense of humour, is honest and passionate about the products she sells. I ended up spending a lot more time in the shop than originally anticipated, and I see myself spending a LOT more time there in the future!
