Trying to find a tea...

by Lette4Life » Apr 3rd, '06, 03:25

Hi All.

About 6 years ago, I bought a tin of tea, it was bagged tea,I believe there were 20 bags or so. the tin was about 4-5 inches tall and it was round, the label was an off white color it completely covered the whole tin, I cannot for the life of me remember the name of the tea.

I bought it at a tobacco and coffee store in Redding,Ca.
But again I cannot remember the name of the store name either,

I was wondering if someone may have an idea of what kind of tea I am talking about.

Please let me know if you do.
any pictures of the tin would be appreciated.
Thank you so much.

Do you remember what type of tea it was (or what flavor if it is a tisane)? That would help greatly...

It could have been bought wholesale and packaged by the store you bought it from, so discribing the appearance of the container probably wont get you very far, but what did the tea taste like? Was it weak/strong? was it green tea/back tea? Did it smell/taste smokey/sweet/malty/vegital/peppery?

Duh, sorry it was vanilla. I put down everything but that.
It was very strong tasting, and it brewed fairly dark.

Sorry for spacing on the flavor... :oops:

If it is REALLY important to you, i would suggest that you contact all of the retailers on this page:

[quote="Lette4Life"]Hi All.

I moved to NV 6 months ago and cannot find Southern Belle Tea. I am sorry I did not come from CA to help you locate that tea or the store. I understand why you are looking for your favorite tea so am I.
