2962 tasting notes

I picked up a new fruity tea on a camping trip along Canada’s west coast. Luckily, there are no cases in the area and I’ve been at home so no danger there. Also we stayed in a little cabin and didn’t have to interact with people.

I don’t know how local this tea shop is (“Tea Center”) but the address on the package says Courtney, British Columbia. I found this tea in a tiny co-op corner store on a small island. So, I haven’t been to Tea Center, nor do I know of the company. I do, however, know I enjoy pineapple and strawberry iced teas. Most of the time caffeine is a turn off, but I think green was a good choice for this blend. I’ve brewed it several times cold and really enjoyed the green tea flavour. No bitterness and it resteeps.

Flavors: Fruity, Green, Strawberry, Vegetal

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more 2 tsp 24 OZ / 700 ML

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
