Gosh I’ve missed Drop Dead Diva, my junk-food-for-the-brain TV fix. This tea went along with it beautifully!

I love that series too. Been recording it on DVR, buy need to take some time to catch up on it.

I just starting watching it on Netflix. It is tons of fun so far. I was getting through the first season really quickly, but then I got distracted rewatching Grimm.

I’m sure that all these dutch licorice teas (the two that I have) come from the same company originally, I’m just stuck as to who that is exactly, so this review stays here.

Still a satisfying cup, and one that I’m really enjoying, although overleafing it a bit seems like my favorite way to have it.

Preparation

drank Rooibos Chai by Zen Tea

Still a smooth and straightforward chai, one that I know will stand up time and time again with mistaken re-steeps as well as purposeful ones.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

drank Cold 911 (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
1431 tasting notes

Had two huge cups of this last night, and this is one huge cup using those combined leftover leaves. The re-steep isn’t anywhere near as flavorful, but it’s still quite tasty. Increasing the rating as I think this has now become a staple in my house for when I’m feeling ill or off.

Had several cups of this last night, and now another today. Every cup has varied considerably, although this one was steeped for close to an hour, it’s my favorite of the group so far. Still less gingery than the last batch, but I’m okay with that. :)

Tonight, this smells and tastes weird, and I’m puzzled as to what’s different. Last night? Divine. Tonight? Messed up, weird.

200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more 4 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

drank Turmeric Ginger by Rishi Tea

Oversteeped, this is just meh. A tiny bit of ginger throughout, until the end of the cup when it’s overwhelmingly ginger… probably the best part of the cup was the last sip.

drank Women's Tea by Pekoe Tea Lounge
1431 tasting notes

I mistakenly grabbed this tonight thinking it was something else. Had it anyway, even though it’s really just an apple tea with a touch of cinnamon and herbals way in the background. Less palatable as it cools, although more… satisfying, knowing it’s an herbal, and potentially helping me feel better.

drank Lemon Ginger & Manuka Honey by Pukka
1431 tasting notes

Picked this up at Winners today, sad that their tea section has gone down drastically. The name appealed to me, even though the other Pukka tea I’ve had wasn’t too great. Only after I bought it did I notice the “manuka honey flavor”, which seems counterproductive to me. Bah.

This is a very granular tea, and while I get the ginger, lemon and honey – it just tastes artificial and wrong. It’s far from horrible, it’s just far from what I wanted.

Flavors: Honey, Lemon Zest, Metallic

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Now, it’s purge time. Time to gather what’s needed and let go of the rest. Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more. And so, I’m happy to share (anytime!) and will occasionally desire small amounts of tea for swaps, just to try.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, and work (dating columnist and consultant).

No-can-do: lavender, overly floral (French florals, or florals that are creamy rather than, well, floral work well!), sugar, Splenda, all grains.

Love: fruity, dessert, chai, spicy, all types of tea.
