drank Peppermint by Harney & Sons
757 tasting notes

Now this is what I’m talking about! ALL the peppermint! I find the peppermint tisanes I’ve tried have a natural creamy component to them, and this one is no exception. So glad I stumbled upon this tin in the grocery store today. Harney & Sons have very pretty tins and tea bags- I couldn’t resist. I also bought mint leaves. I’m stocked up.

Where oh where can one find H&S here?

Sil

In canada?

Fjellrev

Yeah! I’ve never seen it anywhere.

I have had better luck finding mariage freres and a few others but i did spot a Harney & Sons in Pusateries the other day….ie high end grocery stores. I’ll keep an eye out and let you know. Maybe Kettlecrow can tell us which grocery store in the area had it heh.

Also, though it’s a ways away…if i head to New York I’ll try and let a few canadian tea friends know so they can place a few requests. I don’t mind coming back with a suitcase full of tea. haha

Have you been to Pepper’s Foods down at Cadboro Bay? They had a small selection by the coffee in the back. Chapters sometimes carries a few boxes too!

Fjellrev

Ohhh, I keep meaning to go to Pepper’s but always put it off. And I never bothered looking at Chapters.

Oh yeah, I can only imagine that TO has more options. Mariage Freres, wow, good luck finding that here, I’m sure.

Sil

if you have a williams sonoma – you have marriage freres. :) We had them in edmonton, so i’m thinking you might have one there, or at least over in vancouver.

Sil

http://www.urbancoasttea.com/ apparently has the sachets and will deliver..didn’t price compare but might be an option lol

Fjellrev

Oh that’s right, Edmonton does have one. Not Victoria though. But now that’s another thing to add on my list when I go home for a visit!

Wow, thanks for the link! I was more curious about where a person could possibly find it in person. I don’t mind ordering directly from them. Just thought the concept of seeing H&S on store shelves here was insane haha.

Sil

yeah. the teas area always in the weird places i find. ie bookstores, high end kitchen stores, high end grocery stores etc. i was totally excited to see the tins of dammann freres lined up here in beijing. that was super cool. :)

Fjellrev

Oh yeah, the tea options there must be amazing!

CrowKettle

Thanks for the link; the shipping isn’t bad either. If I take to this peppermint it’s cheaper to order the loose from that website than pick up another tin.

I think Chapters stocks more of the Ambessa H&S right now, but they switch it up from time to time.

Do you have Barnes and Noble bookstores? They sell it there!

Bio

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

White teas, roasted/fired green teas, and the not so roasted green oolong varieties are my favourites.

Currently looking for the most buttery and sweet green oolong I can find.

Ingredients/flavours I enjoy (in moderation): anise, butter, caramel, cedar, cream, floral, grapefruit, jasmine, lavender, lemon, lime, maple, marshmallow leaves, melon, mint, orchid, pine, rice, rose, vanilla.

Ingredients/flavours I tend to dislike: apple, cocoa nibs, licorice, marine, peach, stevia

Subjective Rating System 2.0:

91-100: My absolute favourite tea. Will impulsively buy and hoard like a dragon.

86-90: A favourite tea. May have quality flaws that I choose to ignore.

76-85: A lovely tea, maybe of high quality or masterful blending, but not one I’m likely to order again.

70-75: Enjoyable, but I may have few minor problems with quality, consistency, ingredient chemistry and/or personal preferences.

50-69: Quality, consistency, blending, or personal preference problems are apparent, but I wouldn’t pass up a cup.

11-49: Varying levels of undrinkable tea. I don’t give a lot of these ratings out, since I tend to grab teas I know will appeal to me.

1-10: Nightmare tea from the chaos realms. This is last year’s low-grade bancha mixed with rancid coconut, stale cocoa nibs, over-enthusiastic hibiscus, and combined with stevia sweetener. I’m pretty sure it doesn’t exist.
