drank Raspberry by Murchie's Tea & Coffee

It’s raspberryish in that tea way, and I love black tea… so this is pretty much as I expected. Not as good as a raspberry earl grey, but good for those mornings when you rrrreaally just want to crawl back into bed.

Preparation
4 min, 30 sec
Cavocorax

Is it good enough to get you out of bed in the first place? Because I need something like that… :p

Ozli

Hahaha, no it’s not quite there. You have to be already out of bed, sorry.

Perfect winter morning tea. I think I’ve been having too many dessert teas because I sipped it and was momentarily shocked that it wasn’t sweeter, because of all the rich smells. But it’s excellent.

Cavocorax

Haha. I’ve had a lot of dessert teas lately too so I know what you mean.

Can’t wait to try this one – I only have enough for 2-3 cups but it sounds great!

Ozli

If you like it, I’ll send you more!! I have a huge tin O__O didn’t expect it to be so huge but I have no head for measurements. :P

Cavocorax

That would be awesome. I should try it soon. And I’m still trying to wrap my head around the measurements. All I know is Murchie’s is pretty cheap in comparison to other places.

Ozli

I think their teas tend to be a lot simpler. All the fruit/black ones just have fruit flavour and not bits, yk? But this one has chunks of …stuff.

Another cup while I try and figure out what’s for lunch. I wish it was cookies. So yum! ;)

This really does smell like cookies – butter & sugar! But it tastes mostly light and nutty. I like it. Might add a tiiiny bit of sugar next time if I’m having it on it’s own, but with a sweet snack it’s perfect.

This tea remains excellent. I frownyfaced at the tea level in the bag while making it. :P HelenaCat really wanted to try it (but I suspect she just liked the heat on her very stuffed up nose – I doubt she can smell a thing).

drank Chocolate Chili Chai by DAVIDsTEA

Yeah, I had this one twice just to check, but …it’s kinda boring. Not bad, just – not great, either.

Preparation
4 min, 30 sec
Cavocorax

Boo. I thought it was good when they gave it to me in the store but was underwhelmed later on. At least the others are hits.

Maybe cream/soymilk would make it better?

Ozli

I think that’d just wash it out even more :s I’ll have no problem finishing but yeah, it’s not going on the shopping list :P

drank Alpine Punch by DAVIDsTEA

This smells like fucked up cake your aunt makes that has jujubes in it. Or your mother in law, maybe? Probably. Anyway, it’s super good. The first sip I was like GINGERBREAD that is different enough from actual gingerbread for me to like it! \o/

Kelly and I had a whole pot of this. YUM.

PS there’s coconut in this :D :D :D

Cavocorax

A whole pot? Mmmmm. I’m gonna have to try this too, especially now that I know I like rooibos teas!

Ozli

You should!

Profile

Bio

I drink a lot of tea (and coffee!) and do other things sometimes, like hug cats (3 black cats!) and homeschool a child (the Snick, Snickety Snickface the Sharkboy) and make art and draw things and watch too much television and pretend I’m not home when people knock on the door!

I LOVE A LOT OF THINGS.

My ratings probably skew high because of this, but I can’t help being optimistic, it is the natural way of things.
