Been gone a bit – busy! On the Richmond Symphony feedback board now – going to lots of events! Had a nice cuppa of this tea tonight. My mother had visited the Victoria store and had brought me a 4 pack of boxes ( also including Sugar Maple, Canadian Breakfast and Rideau Hall) as a gift when she visited me here in Virginia few months ago. Growing up in Alberta I drank alot of tea but had not heard of Murchie’s – there were no stores in the province at that time. How funny to discover a Canadian tea company now that I live in the US! This is a nice black tea which is a Ceylon & Darjeeling mix with jasmine and bergamot. The jasmine is quite substantial and is what makes this tea stand out. The bergamot is nice too. They are bagged teas so they’re not obviously on the highest tier of fanciness, but I certainly enjoy this blend with a bit of coconut or cashew milk. One bag, 5 mins steep, 210 F. Will reorder.

I’m not really good at describing myself but I’ll try :) I’m 33, married to an awesome guy and mother to a rescue beagle. I’m trained in the teaching/ youth work vein and love to volunteer. I’m a nature lover and also love to garden – growing flowers, food and herbs organically. Nativescaping. I love to be creative and am always trying something new – right now I’m crocheting, cross-stitching, cutting bottles and turning them in to candles, watercolor painting and making fairy gardens. I’ve loved tea my whole life, and have always been a leaf over bean person.

Tea Likes : I am a big fan of fruit/vegetable herbal and medicinal tisanes. I actually make alot of medicinal tisanes from my garden. Love savory teas. I heart rooibos as well, it has such a beautiful well-rounded flavor that never becomes bitter and has an inherent sweetness – nothing need be added. I am also a massive spice fan – things can never be too spicy for me (and are often not enough so). I usually drink 4-6 cups of tea per day.I love unusual and earthy flavors. I will try anything, and don’t do sugar or dairy but sometimes will add unsweetened coconut, almond or cashew milk.

I only log a tea once, even if I drink it all the time.

Since I am reviewing two different kinds of tea on here, pleasure teas and medicinal teas, I will not be using a regular scale. A medicinal tea may not taste great but may work extremely well. I will do my best to convey my opinions of the teas I try for the benefit of those who are interested.

I am a big believer in snail mail and would be up for trades / sample sharing. If you see anything in my cupboard you would like to try, shoot me a message :)
