Every time I steep up one of their black teas, I like the base less and less.

Sniffing the leaves, I got hit with an overwhelming scent of booze. Ok, alcohol based flavourings, I can get behind that. Steeping it, it smells (well, as far as I can smell), delicious. Cinnamon and baked apples.

Tasting it, the base tea overwhelms. It’s bitter and astringent, and seriously. That is not cool. I’ll have to try to remember to steep the rest of their blacks at 185F.

195 °F / 90 °C 2 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

I mostly drink black tea, with some floral oolongs or puerhs thrown in for variety.

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
