Blue Lagooooooon

I’m having a very long day at work. It probably doesn’t help that I had the worst time falling asleep last night, which made getting out of bed this morning brutel. So, needless to say, I’m exhausted. So, I thought I should have something fun this afternoon to keep me going and cheer me up. Why not one of the new Davidstea spring teas?! I haven’t tried them all yet, but I’m working on it.

This one I wasn’t sure what to expect. I didn’t know much about it when I initially got it, but now that I have it, I’m trying to decide what I think of it. I love the blueberries. It turns the tea a nice almost purple colour which is goregous. The lemon is coming out for sure near the back of my throat, which is fine, and the pineapple is adding a hint of sweetness. Now, I ended up adding some sugar to this one as I found it to be a bit too tart without it, probably from the lemongrass, but just half a tsp in 12oz was enough to change that.
I had originally steeped for the 4min minimum as I very rarely need any longer than that, but this time I ended up doing another few minutes. I’m not too sure how long I steeped for, but I would venture a guess that it was around the 6min mark or maybe a touch more.

Overall, quite a nice treat. I could see it being very nice iced if made properly, which I might try with a cup in the next few days. Maybe it’ll help me forget the snow blizzard we had yesterday and stay focused on the fact the sun is out and things are starting to melt away already.

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Bio

I’m a 30yr old aspiring writer. I’ve written several short stories that I’m looking to get published someday soon. Currently I’m actively looking for markets and avenues to get published.

I’m also looking to finish a novel that I’ve been writing for the last several years.

I work as a paginator (I do page layout for our local weekly newspaper) and absolutely love it! I’m also an amateur photographer and “mom” to two adorable “fur babies” (I have two awesome cats). I’m married to an absolute amazing man who “puts up” with my tea obsession.

It wasn’t until a few years after high school that I finally became interested in tea. I started with Orange Pekoe double double (milk not cream) and peppermint. Since that time, I’ve really opened up to other kinds of tea and I’ve well… I’ve kind of just went nuts since then.

I don’t drink much bagged tea anymore. It’s mostly loose leaf in my cupboard. The only except are a couple that were given to me and they sound too good!

I would have to say my favourite kinds are (in no particular order): black, herbal and rooibos (definitely prefer the green to red, but will drink the red too). White teas are rapidly becoming a favourite too. But, they must be flavoured white teas.

I don’t care for mate, green, oolongs, matcha, or puerh (although the puerh cake tea I have may convert me to a puerhs).

I drink tea every single day. I absolutely love it. I can’t image my life without it.

I don’t log every time I drink a tea as I don’t want to spam everyone with tons of duplicate loggings, but I will log when I have a new tea, which happens on a regular basis and when I do a SIPDOWN! :D
