2290 Tasting Notes

I forgot how good this tea is. Again, this is super old, especially for a green tea… I got it in 2014 from Sil maybe? Not sure about the handwriting..

It’s soft. Jasmine. Forest. Some butteriness.

I think I have another cup left. I pulled this tea to finish, so I’ll probably do that tomorrow!

Revisiting this because of Crowkettle!

I found this in the back of my stash. It sadly hasn’t aged well since the last time I had it. It’s quite astringent and the flavour is mostly gone, except for the bitter from cocoa nibs!

Darn. I really liked this tea when it was fresher. (This tea is OLD. So. Not unexpected.)

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

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???


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


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?


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.

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.


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

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…

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!
