Does anyone here like to drink tea? As much as I love coffee, I fucking LOVE tea. Black tea, green tea, white tea, orange tea, pu'rea, oolong, rooibos, maté, etc. I prefer loose tea because your options are virtually unlimited. Today I went into David's Tea because I was feeling a tea crave. As soon as I step in, I am greeted lovely and handed a freshly made sample of Long Life Oolong. This tea had a yellow color and a strong fruit scent. It contains peach and apricot pieces, almond slices, orange peel, and safflower petals. The taste wasn't as strong as the smell, but it was still delicious. I wasn't sure what I wanted because I like all teas. I told one girl that I felt like something spicy. She brought several containers to the counter and allowed me to smell them. I decided to have a cup of Organic North African Mint with a dash of cane sugar. I should have added a bit of agave, but it was still beautiful to taste. It is a green tea that is a little spicy and a little minty. It contains organic, fair-trade green tea, peppermint, organic cardamom, ginger, licorice root, fennel clove, and black pepper. I also bought some tea called Through the Grapevine. This would taste amazing with some agave. It's a white tea that has a wonderful grape flavor to it. It's a mixture of Bai Mu Dan and Cui Min teas. It has mallow blossoms, cornflowers, rose petals, rosehip, and black currant. It tastes pretty damn good. I was going to buy a gourd to drink yerba maté but they didn't have any bombilla straws. They are going to call some other stores and see if they have any. If not, I'll order some. For those who are unaware, you drink yerba out of a hollowed gourd: You can put it in a diffuser like loose tea, but this is how it's done: I think I'm getting a diffuser for Christmas and I'm fucking stoked. I'm hoping to get a gourd and a bombilla, too. David's Tea hasn't even been in Halifax for a year and I don't know any other places that sell loose tea or maté. If any of you live near one of them, I highly recommend going in. The girls at this particular location were extremely knowledgeable and not too bad on the eyes . One girl seemed to eye me a few times and smile. She had a vertical labret and loads of tattoos. If I was single, I would have called in sick and just sat in the store all day. Well, maybe not. That's just a tad creepy. I hope more of you manly folk will admit to drinking tea. Max? I can picture you being a tea drinker. Don't be afraid to admit it, guys!
