This is the twigs that have been separated from green tea production and then roasted. The first thing I noticed after pouring the water on the tea was a wonderful nutty aroma. The tea was a good brown colour.

I would drink this tea when you are looking for a black tea but don’t want the caffeine or an upset stomache.

It went well with my cup cakes.

drank Peach Matcha by DAVIDsTEA

I had this one iced. There was enough peach flavour.

Try it made traditionally.

So today’s tea was another bubble tea.

The base is passion fruit, which is one of my absolute
All time favourite fruit teas. They also added a bit of lime,
Although I could do without the acidity.

Overall a very tasty fruit / black tea mix. I believe it is Ceylon
They use and it holds up well to ice.

Along with that, I had bubbles and lychee candy (my fav)

I could just drink this with just the tea though. So refreshing!

Flavors: Passion Fruit

A sign appeared before me like a brightly lit Christmas tree, only the presents were beautiful bubble teas.

If you know me, then you know I could not walk into a shop and resist the name
Hokkaido Milk Tea. A strong desire to visit Hokkaido, Japan, with all its famous seafood, exists in my heart. I had forgotten that they send cows up there to live and that their
Fresh milk is famous.

I ordered my Hokkaido milk tea with bubbles. It is one of the chains
Most popular sellars. Well, it did not disappoint. The cold taste of fresh milk
Along with a slight sweetness and the mildness of a green tea…

Read that last line a few times.. then you’ll understand :))

drank Mango Island by Tealia

Well, I hunted high and low for a peach or mango tea. Imagine my joy when I found one with a Ceylon base. It tastes like mango and would work well hot or cold.

A decent tin is included and the tea itself is sealed in a bag inside the tin.

You might want to use a tea bag to brew. There’s a little left over in the bottom of the cup.

The brew itself was dark enough for a black tea.

The second in a series of Kombucha, which is locally made. This one uses jasmine green tea and fresh ginger juice along with cane sugar.

The ginger definitely gives it a spicy taste. I don’t notice as much of the jasmine.

I like the very small bubbles. The low amount of sugar definitely lets you taste
The ginger. However, a bit of honey in the bottom of a glass along with small pours transform the beverage to something more ambrosial.

The cost of each bottle brings me back down to Earth, however.

I picked this one up at Walmart. The first time I tried 2 small teaspoons to 450 mL of water. The result was undrinkable.

Second time, I tried one teaspoon. Still bitter.

I will try again. Sigh.


Did you try sitting the bag in cold water first and then steeping it hot?


Nope, interesting idea, though.

Today’s random tea is not so random.

West Lake Long Jing (Dragon Well) from David’s Tea and China.

I can’t sat if it’s this years spring harvest.

The tea is a bit broken up. Small long leaves, otherwise.

The most striking this is th aroma. It reminds me of the spice they use for chicken restaurant gravy in Canada. A little spicy. Delicious.

Today’s tea is Minty Assam. This tea shows how easy it is to make your own tasty teas.

I used loose leaf Assam tea and added 2 Stash mint tea bags. The ingredients are just peppermint and spearmint.

Sugar was added. It was very good.
