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
Cavocorax

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
Cavocorax

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.

So, I haven’t had many pu’erhs but this is a good tea. I’m drinking it cold-brewed today and it’s really nice. The licorice root adds a weird sweetness. If there were much more of it, it’d taste artificial, but it’s fine as just a touch. The smell is amazing, though.

Preparation
Iced
Cavocorax

Ooh. I’ve never cold brewed puerh!

At first I thought this was just weird cold, but I kinda really love it now. It’s strange, the mix of “cold” and “buttery” though.

Preparation
Iced
Cavocorax

I really should try it iced some time! I was also sorta tempted to pick up more because it’s 30% off right now… but I’ve got enough tea. :)

Ozli

that IS tempting!

Drinking the last bit of this, very nice & light this time. :D Making the rest into cold-brewed tea; we’ll see how that goes. Trying to drink down my teas from swaps!

Man, that’s got some bite to it, doesn’t it? I’ll try a shorter steep next time, maybe. A buddy gave me a bunch of this the other day and I forgot til I looked it up that Cavocorax had also sent me some!

The child is walking around like a giant marionette right now. Need more caffeine. :P

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec
Cavocorax

Well this tea should be able to give you that at least! Kick in the face strong!

Ozli

YEP! Sadly drinking coke zero this morning. It’s pretty gross. :P

Last bit! SUCH a good tea. I made it and a peach vodka ginger ale at the same time (it’s hot!!!) and then was like, whelp. :/ I guess I was on autopilot or didn’t count a steeping tea as a beverage BECAUSE I’M STILL THIRSTY WTF >:(

Anyway, I’m drinking it; it’s excellent. And on my shopping list for when Lemon/Lime Tart runs out.

Cold-brewed with lemon! Very nice. I like having a jug of whatever on the go all the time now. It’s nice having a choice that isn’t pop or juice in the fridge when water isn’t cutting it. ;)

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more
Cavocorax

I agree! Iced tea is so handy! And you don’t have to worry about it getting cold or over-steeping as much either!

Did you see DavidsTea is promoting teapop? I’m totally curious about what it’ll be like – gonna have to grab club soda and give it a try!

Ozli

Yesss! I never worry about oversteeping.

I saw that tweet but I haven’t looked at it. It sounds like something I wouldn’t be into but that K would LOVE.

Cavocorax

Yeah my hope is that J will like it and I can slowly get him addicted to tea toO! :O He likes pop bc of the caffeine and carbonation but doesn’t want all the sugar. This is perfect!

Ozli

Hahha #ulteriormotive >:D

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.
