Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage serves this tea in their cafeteria and the adjoined Hickel House hostel. I know personally, since I have been there for the last two weeks. It’s a decent black tea that doesn’t really stand out too much — but it’s better than the coffee they serve. It’s like a weak Red Rose/Lipton blend. However, I’m glad they have it, since it’s been keeping me happy. It tastes better in ceramic mugs than styrofoam, but I’ll take what I can get (especially with milk instead of half and half).

Have I ever told anyone I hate hospitals? Well, I do (though PAMC is a very nice hospital).

Calochortus likes plants and knitting and bacteria. She doesn’t have a very large tea allowance, so expect a lot of grocery store/local/home-grown/bagged teas. She’s grown up with tea, as it is part of (half of) her culture.

Her favorite teas are black and usually fruity or vanilla-y. She likes to put milk in her tea, too, but she’s trying to widen her palette with green teas and rooibos. She finds that tea leaves are great for composting, too.
