Must get more…

Must buy larger container next time…

I had quite the day, Dr’s with poor “bedside manner” and jerk like atittudes meets this tea… everything almost seems okay now.

Maybe I am starting to understand the more subtle notes of “black teas” but today detected floral scents under the manderine and spice. Soothing to the soul and the fractured sense of self – gotta love Dr’s and their ability to make one feel not only fat, but lazy all at once, and all because of a swollen, black finger… that is what I went in for and I came out with a sense of fat and lazy.

Delicious tea, to the point that I think I might be ready to venture into tasting straight blacks, no added flavours….

Hopefully the lab will garner conclusive results and show the Dr that he should stick to teh concern at hand… my puffy black finger that needs attention, and not my body fat, apparently my puffy black finger is a sign of high cholesterol… WFT?!

But I digress, this tea is delicious… I should buy more, soon.

I hear ya sistah! I’m a healthy, active, vegan who is.. well, let’s say curvy. My doctors never cease to hastle me about about loosing weight. One had me talk to a nutritionist, which I was pleased to do, and low and behold I have an exceedingly healthy diet and my bloodwork looked great. Assholes! ((((hugs))))

eeek! Me to. Doctors suck sometimes.
I have naturally high cholesterol, created by my body, not the food I intake. I eat a very healthy diet and exercise often yet I still have the pot belly!
No matter— I have tea :)

MaddHatter

I wanted to tell the Dr. to eat S…T! because all 10 vials of blood work came back fine AND my cholesterol is lower than the “expected average for my age, and weight”

Indigobloom

ahhh, that would have been priceless… the look on his face. Maturity begone, sometimes people deserve a little wakeup call! :)

I am not a fan or orange flavour, but I do like mandarin so I thought I’d give this a shot. I find that mandarin is a lighter and fresher flavour than just plain orange. This to me didn’t really taste like mandarin, just a spicy orange tea. It was a good flavour, just not for me. I might have another cup of it, but this is definitely one for the tea box because I know someone else can enjoy it.

Really enjoyed as a daily tea the orange and spice compliment the tea to give a well bodied cup. Over steeping will give a powdery spice taste that feels flat in the mouth before getting bitter that is eliminated with a touch of added sweetness. I generally steep a maximum of twice 4:15 initially 4:30 for a final pot. Do not bother buying anything smaller than an 80 cup tin as the iced tea and infusions with this tea are also amazing in the summer. I have also added some while making oatmeal in the mornings.

i love this tea. i love silk road. they’re the ones that really got me into loose leaf. the atmosphere and the ‘self-serve’ type tea wall, just a great idea!

anyway, on to the tea… really lovely warming spicy blend. the cinnamon and clove are so nice with the black tea, and the slight citrus taste reminds me of mulled cider in the winter, though this tea would be equally excellent on a warm summer evening.
definitely one of my favourites – and i’m running low! must make another special tea trip to victoria, bc! :)
