I finally went to ihot! It was about a 12 min walk from the place I was working at yesterday. Despite the rain, I toughed it out ;) and I was not disappointed! It’s a really cute shop, nice and knowledgeable staff, TONS of selection and a focus on wellness. They even have ingredients I have never heard of, so this is really exciting to try! Anyone who lives around Northwestern Ontario should check it out- or just order online ;). (I sound like I’m a paid advertisement, lol).
I picked up 3 sampler packs + 50g of decaf green tea + they gave me a sample to try :). my cupboard is up to 62 teas (and will be up to 67 when my celestial seasonings sample comes in the mail). That’s a crazy number for me- I’ve never had nearly that much tea in my collection. I guess that’s what sampler packs do. How I look at it is : 23 “normal” teas + DAVIIDs 24 days of tea + 15 teas from ihot (mostly samples) + 5 teas in the celestial seasions sample pack. Is that cheating lol?
Anywho, onto the review:
I had this before bed. I was skeptical of it because of the lavender: I had a pure lavender tea before and it reminded me so much of my facial cleanser that I was really turned off by it. Luckily, this tea is actually very mellow in the lavender. Actually, mellow all around: It starts off with a minty taste which then flows into the spices (the spices have no bite to it, which is nice) which then finishes with a mellow, floral taste at the end. All together, it was a good choice to have before bed, and I look forward to having more of this tea :).
Flavors: Floral, Mint, Spices
