I bought this blend plus the Fairmont breakfast blend in loose leaf at the Fairmont Store while I was at the Empress in Victoria BC. (Yes I broke my tea buying hiatus). In lieu of high tea which I can’t afford and didn’t have time for during the convention, I bought 100g of each of the two organic tea blends for a very reasonable price of $12.95 each, compared to one sitting at high tea at approx $60.00. I am so glad I did! I really enjoy this blend, the tea bags were not bad for bagged tea but the loose leaf is soooo much tastier (even with my stuffed up nose.) The really nice thing is if I decide this is a favourite, the tea is available in the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver Fairmont Store which I can easily get to :) (it also available online at the Fairmont Store).

I am pretty new to trying different types of loose leaf teas. Growing up we only ever had Chinese restaurant tea or bagged orange pekoe. Later on I tried genmai cha at the Japanese restaurants and added that permanently to my tea cupboard.

So far, I like oolongs and black. Most often I drink straight teas but I do like some flavoured ones as long as they don’t taste fakey or chemically. I would like to try more greens, whites and more Rooibos’ as well as anything that doesn’t have caffeine in it to add to my cupboard.

An attempt at a rating system:
90-100 worthy of being permanently stocked in my cupboard
80-89 great tea would love to have in my tea cupboard but probably in smaller quantities
70-79 very nice tea but I don’t necessarily have to have it
60-69 will drink it but not choose to stock it
50-59 prefer not to drink it unless it is all I have
<50 total miss for my tastes
