I am attempting to keep the amount of tea I purchase this year to a minimum. It might mean paying more shipping cost to only order what I want or “need”. In the H&S department I have two friends who also like H&S who I have conned into helping me get the mint verbena that I have my eye one without paying shipping. One friend is exploring greens so I busted out all the greens I have and gave him samples before he puts in his part of the order. This is a sample I received a while back in a mystery swap and I am not so sure it hasn’t been tainted by being stored among other samples. I am getting a sweet green with a nutty after taste. I am not getting the grassy, spinach that several have mentioned. I might have to order a small sample from H&S to satisfy my curiosity. The tea that I am currently drinking is really good even if it has been affected by the lack of poor storage.

I started drinking tea while on a 4 month long cycling trip through South America. It seemed to always be a great way to warm up when I was cold and it was always available everywhere. Mate was the big tea of choice down there and it was also a great way to get to know people. When I returned home, my sister introduced me to Teavana and this launched me into the realm of loose leaf tea.
