My Cup of TeaPosted By Jennifer Ho Oct 05 2011 · 1 comment · Snacks & Street Food
I first really took notice of My Cup of Tea when I went to Oysterfest earlier last month. MCOT had a booth during the event and were handing out free trial cups of tea that were absolutely delicious! I traded in my last two tickets for eight tea packets and since then, I’ve been hooked.
I love their four eyed half human half tea mascot – the boy is adorable. During a break from studying for a midterm, I made a special trip to Chinatown just to get my monthly fix. I ended up coming out with a bag of “Shopaholic” tea which is comprised of rose, jasmine and lavender – it’s supposed to help calm headaches, relieve stress and promote tranquility upon drinking several cups. I was sold on this one purely because of the smell. Soooo nice. I also got a box of the Tonic Potion which is one of their strongest caffeinated teas which was perfect for me – I don’t drink coffee so this seemed like a great substitute for a natural energy booster throughout the day. Last item on the list? The Zodiac themed blooming teas. These are green teas flavored with floral bouquets of blossoms, each one giving off different scents and benefits to the mind and body. Love it!
*Note: I went to the location on St. Urbain first and found a sign telling me that it would be closed for the next few weeks. Make sure to stop by the store on St. Laurent instead!
