I personally know more people who enjoy the ritual of coffee on a daily basis than tea, however coffee never sat well with me and had that not been the case I likely would have fallen into the coffee camp and missed out on some wonderful taste experiences that can only be found in tea.
I had given up drinking tea for a while but recently had the good fortune to become reaquainted with it’s pleasures thanks to a friend with a generous spirit and access to a great tea store, Infusion Bouteaque in Fort Langley.
Here are the teas I have added to my collection:
Tiger Hill: An exceptional Nilgiri tea with floral notes. A blend of leaves from three crop periods give it a rich aroma and smooth taste.
Creme Earl Grey: Black tea with cornflower petals and bergamot.
Russian Caravan: A black tea blend with qualities of China and Assam.
Versailles Lavender: A black tea with lavender and cornflower petals.
Organic Pussimbing: A Darjeeling green tea.
Good Feeling Sencha: A green tea with papaya, pineapple, strawberry, raspberry, currants and rose blooms.
Passion Fruit Mango: A green tea with mango, mangosteen peel and mullein flowers.
Monk’s Blend: A blend of black and green teas with vanilla.
Prince of Wales: A blend of black and green teas with cornflower and safflower petals.
