Juniper Rooibos from The Capilano.

Delicious. Fruity, herbaly, and I’m very sad it can’t be bought anymore.

Finished this one up! Always so tasty.

I used what was left and brewed hot and strong, then iced it. Yum.

Thank you, B for sharing this with me ages and ages ago!

drank Black Lavender by Westholme Tea Co
2239 tasting notes

Pretty much my favourite tea. I love the Assam base, I love earl grey, and I love the heavy hit of lavender.

So good either plain or with milk/sugar. Once my mom sends me more (she’s my tea supplier these days!) I’ll have to make it as a latte, all fancy with steamed milk and everything.

Sil sent me this One ages and ages ago too.

It’s uhh, not my cup of tea.

Thank you for sharing, Sil. Is this revenge for all the earl greys???

Sil

if you’d had this in the same year i sent it to you maybe i could tell you :P

OMGsrsly

Yeah, I know I really fell out of favour with tea…

From Sil. :)

Just a sweet black tea. Little bit floral, tiny bit earthy.

Sipping on it as I try to get into the readings I have for class… not having much luck TBH. Maybe I just need to read the abstracts and identify what the method is.

I think this might be a pumpkin spice blend from Bulk Barn?

Maybe???

At any rate, it’s fine. Nothing special. Not super pumpkiny. Nothing fancy for the spices. I’ll drink it, but probably won’t get any spice teas from Bulk Barn again.

drank Mango Fruit Punch by DAVIDsTEA
2239 tasting notes

I think I only made this twice with a 54g package. (It’s uhh, dated May 9 2018 folks…)

It’s tasty. I like the pineapple base which means I can drink it. It’s iced. It’s hydrating. It’s a little tart weirdly so it could probably have done with some sweetener but I’ll still drink it.

Yep.

Also, steepster is still super annoying on the phone, huh.

drank Psychocandy by August Uncommon Tea

Yum. This tea is still so good!

I rearranged my kitchen cupboards which necessitated rearranging my teas, and I found this one.

I still really like it. Why haven’t I drank it more? No clue. I would order from them again if… oh hey, they are now offering “15-cup” bags for about $10. It looks like they’re not doing those seasonal releases in tins only! Oh, I might be able to pick up some of my favourite herbals. I’ll have to see where I’m at with drinking up all my no caffeine teas before I work teas into my budget again…

Yep, black currant tea!

With milk and honey right now.

I bought this to ice, but I do not like it iced. So I’m drinking what I have hot.

Preparation

drank Weaver's Blend by The Capilano

Yum!

Standard steep with milk. I still really like this tea.

I’m drinking it with the Shutterbean earl grey chocolate cake. I haven’t made it for a couple years but it’s delicious as ever.

Shae

Just looked up the recipe for this cake and I’m really wishing I had all of the ingredients to make it right now. Which Earl Grey did you use?

OMGsrsly

Some random unlabelled one in my stash. :)
