drank Blueberry Earl Grey by Ovation Teas

Tastes unlike Earl Grey and also unlike blueberries but isn’t bad – a little bitterish.

Boiling 4 min, 0 sec

I bought this because Ovation was closing and they were selling everything for like $1 an oz. I was hoping it’d be tasty but… meh.

When I lived in Vic I used to get EG from Murchies and then steep it with whatever fruit tea I had around (which was a blueberry rooibos sometimes or a grapefruit herbal) and they were pretty yum – so this tea is definitely a good thought, but it fell flat, yep.

Cavocorax

That’s a good idea! I haven’t tried mixing anything around at all.

drank Strawberry Cream - fruit by Zen Tea

Violently pretty! I like this tea – it’s not super tart & the strawberries are really out there. Not creamy at all, to me. I’d like to try their black/strawberry next time, I think. Had this one late last night and got side-tracked with the child.. it was lovely cool in the morning, too. If strawberries didn’t trigger K’s oral allergy syndrome, I’d cold brew this with a bit of honey. Nom nom nom.

(It’s funny, looking at my last reviews of this tea, that I used to consider it more tart than I do now.. I wonder if my tastes have changed? Or was I just exaggerating?)

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Tart eh? I immediately thought – it must have hibiscus! And it does! So you’re probably right about it being tart, but I think iciing it/drinking it cool tames the hibiscus.

Cavocorax

All the cool kids hate hibiscus.

CrowKettle

I actually like iced hibiscus and will eat it, along with everything else, in a dry fruit blend. Clearly not a cool kid. :/

Ozli

Hahaha, I don’t mind it when it’s light-ish like this one. It’s definitely very pretty!

drank Coco Chai Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA

Had the last of this last night. It’s such a unique tea – pepper, which I love… kinda like Jessie’s tea, which I was fascinated with by the novelty of ~lavender but didn’t actually LIKE (but still kept drinking).. I like this one a bunch more, but it’s still “like” through a mirror of weird fascination. :D

drank Swiss Mountain by Della Terra Teas

Tea break! I’ve been trying to force myself to use CLEANING THINGS as a coping skill for my stress and anxiety rather than avoidance and misery… it’s going okay so far, but I’m only an hour in. (Which is totally time for a break!)

I haven’t had this tea in a long time, and it’s one of my faves.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Yes – thanks for the reminder! This is going back on the shopping list!

Anti V-Day Treat still beats this one for me, but it is YUM.

This is a little bit too lemon for me, but the raspberry is very nice! I kinda wish I’d cold-brewed it for Kelly, because this is basically his jam. Gonna resteep it later and see how that goes.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 45 sec

Mmmmm.. and with lemons added in? I bet that would be tasty.

Nothing too special about this tea but it’s sitting nice this morning.

I added ALL MY TEAS to my cupboard, even the two I can’t drink (Butiki one with cilantro that I’m sending to a friend, and S’mores, which she can’t have either) :-O so, 47 + 1 unidentifiable tea because I’m a mess. It’s destined for the cold-brew jug. :P

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

Let me know if you want to get above 50 teas as I have a few I can send your way! Nummy ones like H&S Florence, Boston and Vanilla Comoro!

Ozli

I wouldn’t mind trying them! ;) ;)

Cavocorax

Sweet. I wlll start working on a package for my Ontario people! (Sil wanted some too I think!)

Ozli

You have Ontario people! :D :D

Cavocorax

Hahha. I’m trying to embrace that I will be Ontario people! I’ve been chatting a lot more with Sil, Kittenna and NxtDoor. If you were on facebook (you fiend) you could be in our tea group.

Ozli

MUAHAHHAHAHA, you’re just jealous of my amazing escape!!

Cavocorax

Hahahha. Maybe?

I put honey and milk in this, I dunno I’m feeling unhappy with this whole awake deal, I guess. Honey is weird. I haven’t had it for a long time.

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.
