Sip down the other day.

Usually with a Metropolitan tea, I only steep for 3 minutes, but this one needs at least 3.5mins or 4 minutes.
This isn’t a bad tea, but it’s not my favourite. I prefer the Decaff Irish breakfast that Metro offers.

I love this tea. I made this one as a hot latte here at home. So yummy. Sweet and delicious :)

Long time, no Steepster! I have been MIA lately, but every so often I come on and read a few reviews because why not?
This one has made its way back into my cupboard after a sip down quite a long time ago. I have it back in there because I’m pregnant with baby #2! Munchkin #1 is just over 1.5years old, and baby #2 is currently at 22 weeks, due date is Christmas Day! haha

Anyways, after an hour drive to pick up a final piece of the bed for munchkin’s big boy bed and the hour drive back and putting munchkin to bed late because of how it just worked out, it was time for a cup of hot tea, even though it’s like 9:15pm. I just needed something hot and comforting and this one totally hit the spot. Milk and sugar and a 3.5min steep. Yum. And tonight I’m going to be early because I’ve been up late the last few nights and it’s starting to catch up with me.

Good to see you! Little ones have a funny way of eating into your online time, don’t they?

This lovely tea isn’t going to last long! I am starting to inhale it! It’s so yummy iced in my new iced tea travel press! I love this thing. Like so much!

Anyways, I’m loving this one as an iced tea. It’s already sweet enough on its own so nothing added to this one. The rest of my tin won’t last long now…

Have you ever cold-steeped it? I have a random bag hanging out in my collection, and I still haven’t tried it.

TheKesser

Haven’t tried the cold-steeping on this one yet. I could see that being pretty good though

I love this tea so much. I do wish there was a bit more black tea in this one as I feel there really isn’t much there, but I do love this one. I love the combo of the nuts and creaminess to it. This tea is just so yummy. I do love it as a latte too. :)

I really wanted to love this tea, but there are just way too many apples for me. So sad.

How many times have I reviewed this one now? Too many? Either way again today I’m loving this tea. I steeped up western style as I have somewhere to be in about an hour and still have to pack a diaper bag and get ourselves ready to go out the door. But this time I’m adding some milk! I know it’s crazy to do that with this lovely tea but for some reason I just wanted to.
I love this tea. So smooth and yummy. It’s helping my day start a little better.
Do you ever have one of those days where you wake up and instantly think about everything that’s gone on in the last few weeks? Today was one of them. My husband is finishing his last week at a job he basically hates now and is starting a job next week that i think he’s going to love.
Mid to late January we had to put our one cat down. He was becoming too aggressive and spooked about everything and he gave me such evil looks near the end and I thought he was going to pounce on me and my son. He didn’t handle change too well. I didn’t want to have to but we knew it was for the best especially since we knew he wouldn’t do well going to the humane society, if he couldn’t handle me moving furniture around and a few new noices of my son I knew he wouldn’t handle the humane society. Something was off about that cat. I miss him because he was so sweet at times but I don’t because his bad times where really bad.

Anyways…. Lots on my mind today. And it’s nice to have a moment to sit and wash it all down with a very delicious tea.

I tend to wake up in full throttle, too. Not always a good thing, is it? :)

I have decided I’m so over black teas with peppermint. I’m not living this one even though it’s a good tea. I’m just so done. I was so addicted to them at one time but I think I over did it.
Anyway I’m saying goodbye to this one. Think I’ll see if my aunt wants the rest of this one? I dunno

Sipdown from yesterday! I do enjoy this one but I’m not sad to see it go. Bye tea! Probably won’t restock for a . Trying really hard to drink down some of my teas

Another sip down! Still on my straight tea kick. Not sure why yet. Anyways, last cup of this today. I’m still doing the milk and sugar thing but whatever. haha

I definitely get the jam/fruit taste which is fine, but not something I would go for everyday. I definitely prefer black teas that don’t have that.

But even still, this is a good tea and I can appreciate it for what it is. I probably wouldn’t get this again though.

Haven’t had this for years, but I remember liking it a lot.

For some reason I’m on a straight tea kick. But I’m making it the way I always use to make my Orange Pekoe when I very first started drinking tea: milk and sugar. It’s so yummy.
This tea didn’t stand a chance. I inhaled it. I would love to get more of this one as my alternative to Orange Pekoe, but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get it easily again or not. I found this on the discount shelf at the grocery store sometime last year… But I do know of a place not far that sells a Canadian Breakfast tea from Metropolitan tea company so maybe I’ll switch back to that one.
Either way, this tea is super good and I loved it. It will be missed for sure.

I’m a 30-something-year-old aspiring writer. I’ve written several short stories that I’m looking to get published someday soon.

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.
I’m a proud new mom of a sweet little baby boy born Feb. 3/15. He showed up 4.5 weeks early, but thankfully after a week in the hospital he’s great now. :)
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, white and rooibos (definitely prefer the green to red, but will drink the red too).

Green teas, pu’erh, and matcha are starting to grow on me but I’m very picky about them still. I am finding I like pu’erh tea cakes much better than loose. And with matcha I much prefer flavoured ones over straight.

I still don’t really care for mate teas but there a couple that are the exception to that.

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
