Wow – DAVIDsTEA tins are really the worst. No wonder they have to give them away. I went to pick up my tin of this to check the steep time and didn’t get enough of the base under my fingers. I was left with the lid in my hand and half the tin dumped onto the floor. And this is a light, light tea!
You can pretty much kiss away the concept of air-tightness if the lid is going to just fall off like that. But then, I might have been in a bit of a pissy mood to start. I just completed the hunt through my teas to weed out apple… and it’s everywhere! Midsummer Night’s Dream? Apple. Pink Flamingo? Apple pieces. Pink Passionfruit? Yep. Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait? Oh, yeah.
Dude. We just wiped out my stash of caffeine-free teas/tisanes.
But this is for the tea… and I’m glad that at least one of my DAVIDsTEA blends is apple-free. The other was the Earl Grey, which I did check just for temper’s sake, because apparently they love to sprinkle it around like pretty pretty sparky fairy dust… Grrr.
With its minty aftertaste and lemony goodness, this is a good blend to cool your temper to. And the warmth of a cup of tea in my hands is always so soothing. Tomorrow is the first day of school, so I’m trying to get myself to bed early tonight. Hopefully the valerian will help me along into dreamland.
