Sipdown (123)!

Definitely a really nice end of the night cup of tea, especially with a little splash of milk. Strong cinnamon notes compliment the baking French bread taste from the black tea and sweet, almondy finish. The overall cup was smooth and delicate without having overly subtle flavours. It was a lovely reminder of why I went through 50g of this (sold by another company though) in the first place.

Thank you OMGsrsly for letting me revisit this one!

Another from omgsrsly this one smells delicious but is a little lacking in the taste department. I really wanted this to be a stronger flavoured tea. The weak factor of this one makes me like it a little less than i would if it had a strong intense candied almond flavour. All that being said though, i am in agreement that this is a tasty tea!

Damnit, Granville Island! This is the SAME TEA as sold by Cuppa’T and probably other Canadian tea shops.

Oh well.

It is actually pretty darn good. Sweet, almondy, with a decent black base. It’s a little astringent, maybe because I ended up with the last bit in the bag for my cup. Or perhaps because of the almonds.

I am enjoying it with milk, and think it might make a pretty good eggnog latte as well. Not sure I’d rush out for more, but I could see this being a decent fall tea.

(1.5 tsp for 10 oz)

I know that so many tea shops sell teas from the same suppliers, and it always makes me a little grumpy when I have to figure that out on my own.

I really appreciate it that, if a tea shop is going to sell Metropolitan Tea Co, or whatever other popular wholesaler, that they’re just honest about it. I like a lot of the teas from the big wholesalers. I don’t like ending up with the exact same tea from three different companies by accident.

OMGsrsly

YES. Exactly. And if I had known I would have picked something else because I got this as a holiday surprise and wanted it to be unique. And it’s not. But too bad, holiday surprise people. :D You’re getting it anyways.

I never really found any Granville Island teas I loved….or even liked much…..are there good ones I missed?

OMGsrsly

I’ve only had a couple. They’re a mix of metropolitan and other common suppliers.

Roswell Strange

Cuppa’T is always a guessing game for me: some of their blends are MTC (like the Dutch Licorice I just bought) but they bring stuff in from so many other distributors too. Like, I’ve never seen their Creme Brulee Rooibos ANYWHERE else, or the Pink Beauty Oolong I bought recently. And I originally thought their Monk’s Blend was MTC but after comparing the ingredients lists it’s not the same… Really happy my local store has started listing the distributors they get their blends from!

OMGsrsly

Yeah, I really like it when stores do that as well, Roswell. Janet’s Special Teas doesn’t list their distributors, but she uses different sources than a lot of the tea stores I’ve been to.

Anlina

I really like Surprise Rooibos from Granville Island.

Cornelia Bean uses a few different distributors, which are not always, but mostly clear, and most of their teas I’ve not encountered anywhere else.

OMGsrsly

Zen Tea and Tealux carry a lot of the same things as Cornelia Bean, and have lower shipping minimums. :) The only one I haven’t been able to find that I really liked is the Greek Mountain Orange.

My main problem with Granville Island is they are not clear with ingredients, at least in-store. As I’m becoming more and more sensitive to gluten and wheat, ingredients are becoming a huge sore point for me wrt various tea companies.
