drank Labrador Tea by Camellia Sinensis
2267 tasting notes

This is really, really light, sweet, and somewhat resinous. Very fresh feeling, although I wouldn’t say there’s menthol. It’s also sticky and kinda sorta (at this steep level) is making my teeth feel weird. That’s probably the tannins. It’s also rather thick.

(5 minutes at 95C, decided it was too light so I popped the basket back in for another 5 minutes.)

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 8 min or more 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

weird; sounds interesting though.

It is weird. It’s apparently a soporific, and it definitely made me feel a little unusual last night. I’m going to look up some history/other brewing methods for it.

Neat, some of the First Nations people in my area drink/use Labrador Tea (I once met a guy with a foot infection who was treating it by soaking it twice a day in labrador tea). I’ve never tried it. :)

Same on the west coast. I mean, I’m pretty sure I’ve seen it all over while out hiking, but I wasn’t sure and felt it would probably be best to try it from a known supplier first. :)

I mostly drink black tea.

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!
