From The Capilano

Amoda Tea Monthly Box – September 2015

This herbal blend honours the ancient name for False Creek, an inlet in the heart of Vancouver. The rooibos is subtle here. It’s the deep berry flavours that steal the show. Blended with the tartness of hibiscus, this steeps up a beautiful crimson colour. Sip this hot or have it as a year-round iced tea. Sweeten if you like!

Ingredients: Hibiscus, rosehips, black currant, cranberry, blueberry, elderberry, lemongrass, rooibos

Steep It
1 tsp per 8 oz cup
boiling
4-6 minutes

From The Capilano:

Senakw Village (False Creek) – Hibiscus, Rosehips, Black Currant, Cranberry, Blueberry, Elderberry, Lemongrass and Rooibos

This crimson-berry tisane with rich colouring and deep flavours is delicious, hot or cold, and honours the ancient name for False Creek: Senakw (or Snauq).

“When Haatsalahnough went to Snauq it was probably to catch fish on the big sand bar on which Granville Island in False Creek now stands. The big bar was twenty or more acres in extent, dry at low tide, and the Indians had from time immemorial had a fish corral there.”

Chief August Khatsalano, in Conversations with Khatsalono 1932-1954

I grabbed this because it’s a berry tea with no apple! Apples and me aren’t getting along so much lately, but so many herbal/berry teas are full of it. Makes me sad.

This is pretty darn tasty. I accidentally steeped it for about 10 minutes instead of my usual 4-5 minutes, but it’s still nice and berry-y. Probably more hibiscus flavour than usual, but that’s ok. I just added a spoon of honey.

They’re mostly selling via their website, but will have their teas in a couple galleries in Vancouver, and possibly in some shops in the States… Very exciting.

i figured i should knock two of the capilano teas off my list tonight since they’re herbals so i drank this one as well. it’s pretty much a typical herbal “berry” tea. Not overly hibiscus for those who care about that, and the lemon grass softens the berry-ness a little as well. Not too shabby, though i don’t know if i need this one in my cupboard again since i like my berry herbals to have distinct flavours instead of just “berry” :) thanks variaTEA!

Final Count: 164 (14 more to go i hope this weekend!)

This is a beautiful blend – all different shades of reds and pinks. It smells fruity but also mentholated, maybe like Robitussin? There is a bubble gum smell too. This steeps up to be a bright berry pink. The longer it steeps, the darker it becomes. I can smell the hibiscus now. This is better sweetened; it tames the hibiscus in a way. It’s much better than I expected. The most prominent flavor is still the hibiscus but I can taste the berry flavors too. It’s the tiniest bit tart and astringent, but neither is unpleasant.
