Another from variTEA! On my second cup, I added some ground ginger and cinnamon, and I used brown sugar and vanilla soymilk. That was the secret! This is delicious and warming on a winter night.

Flavors: Pumpkin, Rooibos, Sweet Potatoes

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 15 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 250 ML

(To be fair, “winter night” in Sydney means 9c/45f).

VariaTEA

Yay! Another success! And the way you prepared it sounds wonderful :)

drank Mom's Apple Pie by DAVIDsTEA

Got this from @variTEA. It smells of apple pie (my husband reckons it smells of my favorite cocktail, which is apple pie-flavored). I have an apple crumble tisane, but would never think to put this with a green tea!

I add a splash of honey, though I think I might go for brown sugar next time. This stuff is pretty good!

Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 3 min, 15 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 250 ML

Yay! I am glad you like it. It wasn’t really for me so I am happy it’s found a new and loving home.

It’s okay. Smells like Lucky Charms. I added just a little sugar and some milk, I don’t think I got the full flavor of it. Will have to try again tomorrow.

Flavors: Marshmallow

drank Auckland Breakfast by T2

I bought this as a replacement for my beloved Brisbane Breakfast. The taste isn’t as cohesive as that one is, and the kiwi is subtle enough to be barely noticeable. It’s fine if you like blends, but I’m missing my Brissie.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 45 sec 2 tsp 8 OZ / 250 ML

I’ve been contemplating purchasing this tea ever since a dear friend recommended it. However I was a little dubious about the kiwi being too prominent, so I’m glad to hear you say it’s more on the subtle side. Think I’ll be picking this up next time I’m in store :)

Are you in Sydney? I’ll give it to you.

I’m not unfortunately, currently in England for the time being. However I’ll be moving to Brisbane in September. Would that still be possible for you? If not no worries at all, it was a super generous offer regardless :)

drank Red Choc Mint by T2
14 tasting notes

Plain, this tea is nothing special, but seems like it could be. Add some sugar and vanilla soymilk, and it’s perfect for a late-night sweet craving. (Perils of turning 30: no caffeine after supper)

The scent is heady in mint – almost like spearmint.

Flavors: Chocolate, Mint, Spearmint

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 250 ML

A friend bought this for me for my birthday, I love it :) I like that you can dress it up and make it more dessert-y or dress it down and it still tastes great in a subtle way on it’s own :) Haven’t tried it with vanilla soy yet though, I’ll give it a go

This is what started my latest tea kick!

I was hoping for something closer to a traditional chai. Not so much a fan; it’s a little too out there for me.

I find that the best way to drink this tea is to sweeten it and serve it icy-cold.
